ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run

The annual Rodeo Run has come again! Blake and Michelle ran in it this year.
The rest of us were super-fans and cheered them along.
 As most people know, Blake is in the best shape of his life, and really pushed himself this year at this race. His goal was sub 45 minutes and 7 min/miles. He finished at 43:46 at a 7:02 pace. 
We are so proud of him! His next half Ironman is in April!!

Oceanside, California

My BYU buddies from freshman year dorms planned an impromptu girls weekend in Oceanside. I have not been able to go in the past, so I decided to drop everything and go! Peyton was so great on the plane and the whole weekend...such a great baby.

I am so glad I did. It was so, so great seeing all of them. I think we were only missing 2 people out of our bunch.

 After 15 years, (gasp!) we were able to not skip a beat, and dive right back into our friendships. We stayed up late sharing photos, stories and life together.

It was wonderful! Not to mention, we were literally ON THE BEACH! Can't beat that.

I was also able to sneak in a sleepover and Cafe Rio with Nate/Brittany/Noah in their new house!

Blake spent a super-daddy weekend with Sam and Alayna. They just adore him...I try to not let that hurt my fragile feelings. :)

Valentine's Day

We woke up to a surprise Valentine's Day treasure hunt from Daddy.
It's amazing what he can accomplish when the entire household is dead asleep by 8pm! The girls loved chocolate for breakfast.

Sammie had a school party and was so, super sad when I showed up without Peyton and Alayna. 
Grandma made a last minute visit with balloons and saved me from bringing crazy-town to the elementary school.
We had heart-shaped food for dinner and enjoyed being together in a house full of love!
