Running With Angels 5K

On May 19, I did the Running With Angels 5K with my family, in memory of my nephew who was stillborn, Parker Daniel Rowley. Brian and Emily brought their kids, and I went with my mom and dad. It was a lot of fun. Notice I said, I DID the race. I did not run it. I walked very briskly, while helping push nieces in the strollers :) It was a gorgeous race through all the Thanksgiving Point Gardens. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. These pictures are just at the starting line before we got started.

We made it!

So, a 5K is about 3.125 miles....looks like I didn't quite make it! HAHA! Just kidding. The finish line was just around the corner. That's my nephew, Nathan, and I pointing it out to you. It was fun to get together with some of the Rowley's to run for a good cause!

Fun times!

The Finish Line for the 5K was at the Thanksgiving Point Waterfall Ampitheater. It was so pretty! I liked being able to walk above the waterfalls. It's so gorgeous up there!! Way fun too! My nieces were so cute to play with as we rested to see if we won any drawings or prizes. After the race, we went to Cabela's for lunch. It was pretty cool.

Miranda's Wedding!

Miranda got married on May 18 in the Manti Temple. It was so much fun being able to be in the temple with her, and a few friends as well. She was absolutely beautiful! The temple was way fun, the reception was way fun, and we even got to see the recently released Elder Steven Hurd. It was fun!

Denver Fun!

This last weekend was one I was looking forward to, alot! My sister came up with this amazing idea about six montha ago to go to Denver and see "Wicked" in May, while taking my dad and Darrell along with us. So, Friday, Darrell and I loaded up our car in beautiful Logan Utah at 8:00 A.M. and headed to Richfield. We then joined my parents, and drove on to Grand Junction, CO, where we picked up my sister, Sheri, and headed to Denver. We got to Denver at 10:30 P.M. and I would definitly recommend the 11 hour drive to ANYBODY! On Saturday, we started out the morning with a session in the Denver Tmeple, and then went to a matinee performance of "Wicked," Which was wicked awesome! Pun intended. It was a lot of fun. Fast and fun!

More of Denver!

We ate lunch at the Cheesecake Factory on 16th Street before heading up to the Buell Theater for Wicked. I ordered a lunch pizza and side salad. The menu said, "small side salad," so I was expecting small. So, they bring out this gimungous salad, which was bigger than my pizza! Needless to say, I was prety stuffed. Darrell ordered the "Tons of Fun" burger, and it was like the size of his face. He had to smash and shove, but it was delicious, so he said.
Darrell really enjoyed Wicked. I was so excited that he did, because I was going to feel so bad if he didn't! It was way fun, and even my dad thought that it was awesome! At intermission, Mr. Rowley says, "Wow, this story has a moral!"
