So I competed in my first ever race! We did a mini-triathlon (400m swim, 10.3 mile bike, & 3 mile run) and it was a blast! Thanks Talia for training with me and introducing me to the world of races. I actually reached a point in training where I didn't DESPISE running! So excited about that, and never thought that day would come!

Thanks Mike, Mom, Dad and Sarah for waking up bright and early to come support me :) And thanks for the pictures dad!
Once again I went to watch my girls cheer! They are so beautiful and such great cheerleaders. I miss them!!
Tegan is so funny. He copies EVERYTHING Mike does. He grabbed the glove and put it on, then lined up the ball himself! He would just do this over and over.
This girl is officially on solids and doin' great!
I turned 26! We went and enjoyed Cheesecake Factory! So yummy :)
My babies on Halloween!
Mike even got in on the fun with some glow in the dark teeth from the ward party.
