Colorado Springs.

 Ryan and I were able to go Colorado Springs on a work trip.
Most of the time the weather was raining, but it still was a beautiful resort, and we had a few days at the end with perfect weather!

One day Ryan and I decided to check out this hike, Over a mile up in stair climbing. We thought we were in pretty decent shape, and this wouldn't be that hard of a workout. BOY were we wrong, and humbled to say the least. That hike was insanely hard! Over 1,000 ft in elevation ending over 9,000ft.

I feel pretty blessed to be able to travel with Ryan, going to these amazing places with his work.

Birthday Twins

Took these little munchkins out to lunch for their Birthday.
I am so lucky to have these two little spit fires in my life. They were a handful then, and can still be a handful at times, but they also bring so much joy and happiness into my life. Can't believe they are 9 years old. Seriously where does the time go??

Utah State

 On our way back from Bear Lake we spent the day in Logan. We took the kids up to Utah State Campus. Showed the kids where Ryan and I met, and got them all decked out in Aggie gear.

Love my little Aggie Fans!

Bear Lake 2014

 We decided to have a mini vacation and head to Bear Lake with some of the Ellis family.
We rented a condo, played at the beach, went to the Pickleville play house, explored some caves, and had a blast!

We had the best view from our Condo.

Playing at the beach.

Cache Valley TRI

 Today was a first for me! I completed my first TRI. Swimming has been more of a challenge than I ever imagined it would be, but I survived that part, and got on to the bike and run. It was pretty fun, and I'm sure more are to come :)
If I can get my swim down, I think I could be competitive.

It was pretty fun to get to do a race with Ryan. 

He of course rocked it and placed 1st by a long ways. 
Many more TRI's for this duo in the future :)

Water parks, Friends, and Summer Camp.

 We got to get together with some of our Gibb friends while they were in town.
We took advantage of the summer weather, and headed to Rexburg Rapids for some fun!

The kids had a blast, and I will do anything to be outside in the sunshine! :)

Caden was at camp that week. This boy loved going to Pine Basin last year, and wasn't about to mis it this year. He even chose to go over his birthday!
Can't believe I have am 11 year old.... where does the time go?!

 Summer is my most favorite time of the year. I LOVE the hot warm days.
Living in Idaho without the humidity makes it even better :) 
We decided to go on a walk around the river, it was a blast.

So glad I have a little running buddy! He did the firecracker 5k with me and smoked it! running it at an 8 min pace, taking 2nd in his age group. What a little stud!

After the race, we headed over to star valley to meet up with friends for the 4th. We caught the small town parade where the kids made out like bandits with candy, and watched some pretty awesome fireworks.

We spent the next day in Jackson, eating, swimming, and playing!

A trip to Star Valley isn't complete without visiting the Teton Mystery...

We love when we get to spend time with our Thompson friends!

Ragnar 2014

We had another epic Ragnar adventure! I seriously love getting to do this race! It makes it all the more fun, cause of these ladies. 

I have loved challenging myself every year at going faster, passing people, and this year, because I ran the same legs, I was able to challenge myself to do better. My goal was to run my legs all under a 7:30 pace.

One of my most favorite things about this Ragnar is the views. How can you not enjoy every run when this is the scenery?!

At one of the exchanges, they had these amazing leg compressor things, that felt SO good!

Happy to be done, and even happier I made my goal of all miles under a 7:30 pace :)

Van one ladies (minus Keri)

Medals, and showers. never felt so good!

Whole team, Defy Gravity!

 This summer I was able to go Summit for Beachbody. I had the best time! Love this company, love the people I've been able to meet through being a coach.

One of the funnest parts of Summit was the main sessions. Tons of motivating talks, and stories of successful coaches. 

The highlight of the trip was running into friends from my Chicago days and working at the gym. Kristina is really part of the reason that I even joined Beachbody. She's a huge inspiration to me, and a great friend.

And then there was the HUGE live workouts with the trainers was a blast. So much energy, so much fun, and never have I worked out with so many people 6,000+

I love that this company is all about people, and bettering their lives. That is why I was drawn to it, and why I decided to be a part of it.
Next year, Nashville baby:)

 Last day of 5th and 3rd grade! These kids grow up way too fast!

This little boy ran more miles in the schools running program than anyone else. He ran over 150 miles for the school year and won a bike, and a few other things. So proud of this little stud.

 My girls tried out for competition dance a few days ago, and today we found out they both made a team! Bring on the season of life being a dance mom! :)
