Utah Valley Provo Marathon!

So I ran my first Full Marathon a couple of weeks ago and it was such a awesome accomplishment. So I started my training back in Feb and from Feb 7th til June 11th I ran a total of 458 miles leading up to the marathon so over all 484.2 miles I ran in alittle over 4 months wow that is alot of running. Anyways during my training I said I will never run a full marathon again but once I finished I changed my mind and yes I will for sure run another full marathon just so I can beat my time LOL!
K so I ran my Marathon in 4hr and 9 minutes so my minute mile pace overall average was 9:32 minute miles so that wasn't too bad for my first marathon I was hoping to come in at 4hr exactly but I guess 9 minutes over isn't so bad. K well here are a few pics of the marathon. I ran it with one of my really good friends Martin and it was so nice to have him there with me we helped motivate each other so it was nice. Thanks mindy for taking some pics for me.Thanks to everyone who came out to support us that was awesome!Pat also ran the 5K that morning he did awesome way too go babe!

A Day Out With Thomas!

I guess the heber creeper does a day out with thomas once a year so we thought it might be fun to take the boys up there to spend the day out with thomas and they loved it so of course I forgot my Camera so this is the only pic I got with my phone, mindy took some pics with her camera but she hasn't emailed them too me yet so once I get them I will add them on.
We got up there and got checked in and we had to wait for 45 minutes before our train ride so we took the boys around to all the little things they had going on like thomas tattoes, so when it was there turn to get there tattoes they would not let that kid that was doing them come near them so grandpa had to put them on them it was pretty funny then we went over and let them run wild in the hay maze, after that it was time to catch the train the kids loved it we went up there with sammie and jaxon and grandma and grandpa it was a little 25 minute train ride but they all enjoyed it after that we went over to the gift shop and bought them a few little prizes and of course grandma had to buy all of the grandkids a shirt we were going to try ang get a pic of them all wearing there shirts but that didn't happen. My boys have been asking to wear there shirts ever since we went up there so I put them in them today and that is all they can talk about thomas the train here are a few pics:The boys love to play together so this is them being silly and eating there Otter Pops!
Then we took all the kids to the Aquarium on sunday but once again I didn't take my camera so I didn't get any pics of them there but they had fun except when all the kids were standing over by the shark window area and all the sudden this shark came out of no where and it was right up by the glass so right by Ayden's face and yep I bet you can only imagine what happend next oh he let out the biggest scream and started crying so hard it was hilarious I wish I would have had my camera hehehe!
So pat bought a bike trailer so he could start taking the boys on a bike ride while I am out running so here are a few pics of the boys with their new helmets and going for a bike ride they love it!so I haven't blogged in awhile so I am just kind of blogging about somethings we have been doing and some of the things the boys love to do, so they love going out on the deck and just running around and sitting out there to watch the airplanes fly by so here are a few pics of them hanging out on the deck:
and they love it when sissy mav comes to visit them:The boys are getting so big I just can't believe how fast they grow up they can count to 12, they sing their alphabets to me all the time and they can both spell their names its so cute and they are both just little talkers thats all they do is talk we can't get Ayden to hush up most of the time its funny both their personalities are so cute but so different.
