So today was the Salt Lake City Marathon. I can't BELIEVE it's already been an entire year since I ran it! Wow! That's so amazing to me. In fact, I'll admit, I teared up a little watching the video of me at the finish line. Oh, how I miss it! I have a bunch of my online friends who were running the half this morning. I can't help but feel a little sad that I wasn't out there running today too. But I've decided to make it a goal to run the Ogden marathon again NEXT year on my 30th Birthday! Marathon #3 on my 30th--sounds pretty good, doesn't it? Every time I see a runner, I have a sudden pang of longing to be out doing it myself. As the weather gets warmer (and I get bigger!) I just want to run! Not too many more weeks, though, and that will be me out there again!

First of all, YIKES! I realize it has been a very long time since I last posted. My apologies! We are in the thick of things with the basement, trying to finish up before the baby comes. It's so fun to see things coming along so well! So exciting. But my blogging has suffered because of it. Sorry, sorry! But I actually took some pictures of our fun Easter festivities to show you all we can still have fun, even when it's busy! I sure love this time of year. I just love the Spring!! And I especially love when we can celebrate the life, Atonement, and Resurrection of our Savior!
We had our traditional coloring of Easter eggs. I really think Vince enjoys it just as much as the kids do! Here is everyone with their favorite eggs! They're all so typical of each person, too. Brooke's is purple with a pretty butterfly. Evan made his into a death star (of course--has to be Star Wars)! And Vince colored and dyed, and colored and dyed his egg to make it into a gorgeous globe! He's so artistic!
Here the kids are looking for their eggs and candy! So much fun!
