Run, run, run and Vegas

Earlier this year Jake and I decided that we wanted to run a couple of races. In May we ran the Ogden Half Marathon with Jake's sister Kelli and in June we ran the Ragnar Wasatch Back. It was defiantly a challange but we had fun. At the end of May we had the Olsen girl trip to Vegas. Lots of sitting by the pool, shopping and eating. It's always a blast and can't wait for next year.

Kelli came on the last day and ran with Jake. It was the greatest thing ever.

At the end of it all!
Our one Vegas picture. We didn't do very good at taking pictures but at least we got this one.

Wow...Major Update

So I know I'm slacking on posting but here is a huge update on whats been going on in the last 2 months. Hope you like pictures cus I have a ton. Jake's sisters ran a half marathon in Moab so we all went down to watch and have a much needed vacation.
You can't go to Moab without doing a little jeeping

The Running Crew

After Jake and I watched them run, we decided tha we wanted to run one. So we are all signed up and ready to run the Ogden half marathon on May 16!

The week after Moab, we headed up to Jackson Hole to watch the hillclimbs. No pics of that trip but we love the hillclimbs and had a blast. The day before we left to go to Jackson, Jake called me at work to tell me this:

Jake: What you doing?
Me: Working
Jake: How much longer are you going to be?
Me: About another hour
Jake: K, well our house is flooding, just thought you should know.
Me: !!!!!

Jake was walking up to our house and could hear all of our fire alarms going off and of course his first thought was that I left my flat iron on. So he ran upstairs to see and he said there was TONS of water everywhere. Good thing we were going out of town that weekend cus we had our carpets ripped up and had huge fans going till Monday.

This was just the kitchen but our family room looked the same. What a pain but now it's all fixed.

For spring break and Easter we all went to sunny St. George to get away from the weather. We stayed at the Inn at the Entrada and all the kids thought that was so cool cus that's where High Scool Musical 2 was filmed. It was a weekend full of swimming, golfing, bike riding and having a blast.

A Little Update

I can't believe how fast time is going by! I don't know where January went and February is going just as fast. Jake's birthday was in January so we went on a short trip to Viva Las Vegas to celebrate. We went with Jake's sis Kelli and her hubby and some friends. The weather was great and all we did was shopping, eating and going to the Cirque du soleil The Beatles LOVE. This past weekend I went to St. George with my mom and sisters to the Home shows. This is one of my favorite trips ever! This year the houses weren't as great as the past years but they were still fun to look at. Here are just a few pictures of some of the houses.

This isn't the best picture but I loved this room.

A Christmas to Remember

This christmas was one that we will never forget. We lost two amazing guys to something that they both loved to do. Jake lost his best friend and one really good friend. I can't talk that much about it cus it is too close to my heart and is still to sore. We love Erik and Jesse. We don't have a single bad memory of either of them and if you went to the viewings and the funerals, it was obvioulsy how many people loved them. Casey we love you and we will be with you through this whole thing. You and the families are in our thoughts and prayers.
