Mother's Day 2017

I think Mother's Day is a great holiday to celebrate all the women that I love so much! And I'll be's fun to have my little family celebrate me too! Even though my four-year-old ruined all the surprises (like bringing up the gift and saying, "Here's your mother's day present! It's running shoes!" and telling me right before I opened my card that, "It has Cookie Monster in it!"), I wouldn't have it any other way! I also love my mom and mother-in-law so much! Happy Mother's Day!

Prayers again!!

We are SOOOO blessed! Each time we have done in vitro, it has worked, and we have two beautiful children; one boy, and one girl! So, here we go! For the third time! Another round of IVF! This time, we are being as aggressive as possible, because we nearly didn't get Reagan last time. We are excited and nervous and every emotion wrapped in one! But we are asking for your prayers in our behalf! Thanks! We will keep you posted on what happens!
A HUGE sigh of relief happened last night . . . I talked to the nurse, and she said that we can make it so that all of my cycle can be done here in Idaho Falls. This is huge! Child care will be easier, and we won't have to travel or get a hotel or anything like that! Phew! And medicine is ordered, so it's getting REAL now!

Salt Lake half marathon/a week in Park City

We traveled to Utah on April 20th for the Salt Lake half marathon that Chris was running on the 21st. We stayed in Park City, with our good friends who got a condo for a really good deal. Chris stayed through Sunday, and then went home to work, and we stayed and played in Utah. It was a super fun week!
 Chris did the race in 2 hours and 37 minutes! Yay! He never tries to break his personal record, and some other runners said that he was their pacer in the race, because he is so consistent!
 Chris and Davis with their medals for the race.
 Some other racers gave their medals to Davis and Reagan
Our condo had a heart-shaped bathtub in it. Marcela's brother came to visit, and the kids played in the tub after they realized that the pool was outdoors and COLD!!

 Is there anything better than playing with your best friend and the water? I submit that there is not!
At the Museum of Natural Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point. This museum is like a paradise for kids. It pretty much is an entire museum of places to play for kids. But it is also really easy to lose your kids! I found a lost kid in it, and I feel like I was constantly looking for my kids! It was super fun though! The internet said that most people spend 2 1/2 hours there. We were there for like 5 hours! We thought that our girls would take naps there. Ha!
On our way home, we were able to see Whitney and Noah! It was fun to play in Salt Lake with them!
