Shirley's 4th of July 2013

Oh Ms. Shirley! Here she is in her 4th of July attire.  Isn't she just a doll? I love the way she would crawl while wearing a dress/skirt! Like a stink bug with that bum in the air! She is just a doll!

Children's Parade 2013

I love Provo in the Summer.  I figure if I can't be at the beach everyday I mine as well be in Provo.  There is so much to do, so much free stuff and it's really geared around children and families.  LOVE! We did the Children's Parade again this year.  Pman rode his balance bike and took it pretty serious.  Shirley rocked the stroller...and sunglasses ;)

National Marriage Day 5k

We ran the National Marriage Day 5k in Provo at the Riverwoods.  And it was by FAR my favorite 5k I have ever done.  It was extremely small, it was it's first year. But it was so well done, organized and went off without a hitch.  I planned on running with the hubs, he was pushing the jogger but I felt like I could push it so he signaled me to go ahead.  I ran but not really hard (that's something I am working on in my running) and realized I was close to the front.  I ran behind a couple for the longest time and then when I realized how close to the finish we were I passed them! I thought I was the third girl...but I was fourth.  That seems to be my running curse.  I did win a gift card and a pearl necklace.  It was a great race and I loved it! Can't wait to do it next year!

Pman's baseball

We love Provo! Pman did the smart start Provo Baseball league.  It was a parent-child learning team so we had a blast.  Pman rocked it, he has an awesome arm, both for throwing and for hitting! Practice was twice a week for an hour and then they have a "real" game the last day.  Unfortunately, that was the day we went to Spanish Fork Reservoir with our friends and went swimming and playing and Pman fell asleep and I had to wake him up for the game.  You can see from the picture of him crying.  He didn't want anything to do with it.  Our good friends Brandi, Ryker and Harley came to watch the game! We sure miss them.  We loved exposing pman to a new sport and having fun being active!

It's about time

The other night the Hubs asked why I never blog any more.... I think blogs are kind of a thing of the past, but I actually really love them.  So I'm working on it.  I have actually set some "blog goals" to get caught up.  So even if it is just me and the hubs reading this at least it will be current.  Things are going well with this little family. We are busy.  The hubs works 70-80 hour weeks, and travels often.  The kids and I are rocking a lot of "together" time.  Porter goes to Preschool twice a week and Shirley is growing like a weed.  We had an amazing Christmas in California (once we recovered from being sick) and had the best day ever at the San Diego Zoo.  We got to see Pman be more interested in what Santa and the Reindeer ate than the gift Santa brought him! I am going to blog about: pmans surgery, Shirley growing, our road trips, pman's soccer, our adventures, and all the cute pictures I post mainly on instagram now!
