We celebrated Ed's 42nd Birthday by going out to dinner and having cake the next day because we were so full from dinner on Ed's birthday. These boys got really silly and ended up with cake on their faces.
Brennan kept making the craziest and silliest faces in every single picture I took. Ed played a joke on him....
Ed dunked Brennan's face into the cake, he thought it was funny, then two seconds after this picture was taken, Brennan started crying because he had frosting up his nose.
Ed got really silly trying to get Brennan to stop crying.
In January we made a day trip to Moab/Arches National Park. Ryan wanted to test out his new camera and we thought it would be a great day trip and an opportunity for some family time. We had so much fun hiking and exploring. We practically had the park all to ourselves. We spent a few hours at the park, went into town for some dinner, then went back at night.
Ryan took this picture of Ed & me. We are sitting under an Arch.

Brennan is also an aspiring photrographer. He likes to do whatever his big brother does.
I took this picture of Ryan taking a picture of me.
Brennan took this picture of me under an arch and I can't get over how huge my ba dunk a dunk is. I knew it was big, but no denying it now.
I have been so busy with life, the boys and work that I have not had time to update my blog, so I am trying to play catch up. I picked my favorite picture over the past 3 months of each boy.
Brennan at the Flash game having just been sprayed by silly string by Flash the Fox, he got me good too!
Ed showing us that he can now do a headstand, thanks to Yoga. Let's not forget who introduced Ed to Yoga.
Ryan looking like a rockstar after straightening his hair.
Highlights of the last few months:
Ed had his 42nd Birthday (more pics coming).
We went to Arches for the day (more pics coming).
Ryan entered his first photography contest. He did amazing work and we are so proud of him.
Ryan has been doing amazing in school. He's been on the honor roll. We also met with his school counselor and received his Iowa Test results, a composite score in the 94th percentile. Not only is he a good son, so nice, kind, sweet, generous, and cute, he is also "freakin'" smart!
I registered to do the Ragnar Relay (Wasatch Back). This will be my 2nd Ragnar and Ed and Ryan's 1st. Bad news is I've been struggling with a bum knee.
I got tickets to U2 (another item off the bucket list). Going to see U2 twice in June, girl's weekend to Denver for the concert thanks to the generous gift of free tickets from my friend Nissa's brother. Thanks Hans! Amazing 2nd row tickets in an amazing section for the Salt Lake show thanks to my friend Diane. Thanks Diane (membership definitely has it's priveleges)!
Brennan is growing and learning and saying the funniest things. I will have to share the Chinchilla story in a later post. I think he keeps us young at heart.
I have discovered Pilates, Spinning and Core Mix/Pump. Have had to replace running with these new activities to try to give my knee a chance to heal. I am really enjoying these activities, although the next day my body aches all over and talks back to me for submitting it to torture. In Spinning, I fantasize about Lotoja.....you never know, crazier things have happened.
I know there is probably a lot more, but it is 2:30 am and I am finally getting very tired.......
I am trying to update my profile on my blog. It is so BORING!!
I want it to be a little quirky, describe my situation in life, my challenges, my triumphs...yada yada.... I want it to be real, not some crap about how wonderful my life is...cause let's face it...it's been the $#&@s for the past 3 years! More to come....
