summer in LV..and a trip to Utah in between

 Over the 4th, we spent plenty of time in Utah...noone does the 4th like provo! We got pipers ears pierced over the break since she has been known to be called a boy. what?
 I ran the Utah Valley marathon in June with my dad and ran into my inspiration as a runner, Danielle! I was able to PR with a time of 3:15 which took a toll on my knee and im STILL trying to recover.
 I don't know if you have heard but LV is HOT during the mornings are a good time for us to get out for the day...we took a hike up redrock and the boys loved it of course.
 and if you haven't heard it hardly EVER rains in LV either, except this day, so we took a walk to the store to get a donut in the rain and it felt g.r.e.a.t!
 4th of July stadium of FIRE! Tyson was there too...somewhere.
 bridalveil falls...
 The childrens parade....piper should have been the grand marshall. just sayin. :-)
 Science experiments with friends keep the minds a workin. and wall ball keeps their arms a workin.
GOod times so far this summer.  More on the agenda is yet another trip to Utah, then off to McCall Id to play with Tysons family in the lake for 4 days.  After that adventure, we will spend some time in Zions with my family. Busy is my favorite thing to be!

 as did reggie-roo.
 Tyson looks ticked to be taking an easter family picture...but he really ecstatic!

Prepare to be amazed...

My boyzzz were pumped to preform talents at the ward primary talent show...but what you ask? Well Reggie came up with the idea of a headstand with a twist & Owen preformed a cross fit routine. video coverage is horrible but it will do until i get a copy of the primary presidents. ENJOY.

my life these days...

Owen teases Reg, he tries to make piper laugh and she acts way too cool. thats my girl! mealtimes around here are quite amusing!
Tys and i had a' just dance' party and i made him dress the part...he was SUPER excited about it!
Owen "balls it up" as always! You put a ball in this kids hand and he is happy as a clam. In fact the boys now ask me to take them running around the neighborhood and want to know if the foods they are eating are "superfoods". Tyson may say i am brainwashing them...i beg to differ.
Reg had an angry birds party with his friends where we threw balls at boxes and popped balloons! chaos...pure chaos. the kid loved it.
and then there's miss piper. crawlin, bookin it up stairs, and sayin "mama". Ive already got her trained on downin green smoothies and bein my runnin partner with the jogger stroller. she is the main source of entertainment round here and we cant get enough of her. Shes already developing the funniest personality. 9 months and as fun as ever.

So i love St George for so many of them being the great people i get to hang with each time i go! Sister has some pretty A.W.E.S.O.M.E. friends who showed us an equally A.W.E.S.O.M.E running trail. We ran up to the tippy top and the view was crazy! There was a little marker up there where you could add a rock. kinda like an "i was here" thing. This was over new years and the weather was gorgeous. I love adventures like these!

This little man turned "Fo" yesterday and im happy to say it was a success. Tyson got him a fish (which he wanted to hold)...We will see how long that lives. He got a new bike and a whole lot of candy...the things he loves most. We had donuts and threw angry bird balls at boxes all afternoon with friends and cousins! Best day ever. Reg is a good kid FULL of energy and witty-ness (is that word). He makes me laugh when im at my breaking point with him. One of a kind and SO happy im his mom.
