Color Palooza 5K

We finished our first 5K Race this past weekend! The Color Palooza race was held at Hansen Stadium at Dixie State Univeristy and the proceeds benefited local organizations. There were 5 color stations along the route and as you passed through each one you were blasted with color so by the end of the race we looked like a tye dye mess. :) It was a really fun experience and I can't wait to do some more races over the summer!

Dispatcher of the Year

Jace won Dispatcher of the Year! He was nominated and chosen by his coworkers in the St. George Police Department. It was so fun to be able to attend the Awards Banquet and find out that he had won! I am so proud of him and all of his hard work! He truely loves his job and looks forward to going to work and serving the community!

Georgia April 30 - May 7

We were lucky enough to be able to take a trip out to Georgia a few weeks ago. It was an awesome trip and so much fun to see Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Madi. We had lots of fun. The boys did great on the airplane rides which was a relief. We flew out on Trevor's first birthday so we got to celebrate while we were there. He really enjoyed his cake! :) Jace and my Dad played in a golf tournament at their club and they did really well. Jace was in golf heaven! My mom, Madi and I took the boys to Zoo Atlanta one day and Tanner had a blast! Madi was super excited to see the Panda Bears too! We also did some shopping and just had fun being together. It was a wonderful trip and we are looking forward to when we can go again! (Jace says we will be going every May from now on so he can play in the Member/Guest golf tournament with my Dad and I am ok with that :))

Tanner's Swim Lessons

Tanner started his first session of swim lessons at Sand Hollow Aquatic Center this week. He was super excited to go swimming in the pool. I was so nervous all day thinking about it. I was worried he was either going to hate it or be so excited that he wouldn't listen to his teacher very well. But there was no reason for me to be so nervous, he did GREAT! He loved it and he was a great listener! He had so much fun and can't wait to keep going back! I am so glad that he isn't scared to try new things and is such a good boy!


April 6, 2013 Jace decided to take a Saturday off work so we could go on a day trip as a family. We decided to head to Las Vegas for the day. Tanner was pretty excited to go for a ride in the car and go to "Begas". :) We saw lots of fun things while in Vegas. We started at the Excalibur which was Tanner's favorite, he kept asking to go inside the castle all day. We went through the MGM, but were a little disappointed because the lion exhibit was gone. After MGM, we went to the M&M and Coke Factories. Tanner was super excited to see the M&M race car but Trevor was not excited about seeing the red M&M. He started crying when the M&M got too close. After that we went through Mandalay Bay, Luxor and then back to Excalibur. After the strip we went to the Town Square Mall. It is an outdoor mall just south of the strip. They have a kids play area with a park, a splash pad and lots of other fun things. We met up with Jace's parents, the Dodge's, and Dallen at the mall. They had all been at Valley of Fire and came down to the strip afterwards. Tonya took Sophie and Tanner on a train ride at the mall and they LOVED it. Overall, it was a very fun but long day! We are looking forward to going back in a few weeks but this time we will be getting on a plane to Georgia!!


March 31, 2013 We had a great Easter this year. We started by coloring Easter eggs on the Friday before Easter. Tanner had lots of fun coloring the eggs. He thought it was especially funny when he would drop the egg into the dye and it would make a big splash. :) The Saturday before Easter we got together and had dinner and an egg hunt with Jace's extended family. It was Tanner's first egg hunt and he did pretty well. He found lots of eggs and collected about $4. On Sunday, we woke up to find that the Easter Bunny had visited our house! :) The Easter Bunny brought all of us a basket full of goodies. He brought Tanner an Iron Man action figure, Trevor a bucket of blocks, and mom and dad a book and dvd. Also, there was WAY too much candy of course. After looking through their baskets, Tanner and Trevor found the eggs that the Easter Bunny had hid through out the house. After the egg hunt we went to church with Jace's parents in their Santa Clara Ward and then had dinner at their house. It was a fun Easter and the weather was beautiful!

Tanner's 3rd Birthday

Tanner turned 3 on February 19th and we had a big birthday celebration with family and friends. It was a Lorax themed party at Red Mountain Elementary School. Can't believe my baby boy is already 3! :)
