Welcome to the world to my new neice Sasha. She was born right in between her mom and dad's birthdays this week. We are so excited to see her and happy for Katya to have a sister. Isabelle said today that she was glad for a new baby cousin because "Lucy is getting SO old!" (she is only 18 months!) Congrats Dave and Marina. So happy to have another "PettPett"!

I was tagged to do this challenge, but didn't even know about it for the past few months because I have been a slacker at blogging, so here is my sixth picture in my sixth file:

It is SO random, but it is Isabelle and I at the Childrens Museum in Kansas City, MO. We went there with Nana and Taylor in 2004, so Isabelle was about 3 years old. You were hooked to this spider web of robes and you had to go over and under to get across. Sorry, Aimes, not as exciting as your babydoll hooks in the bathroom.

April...a bit late!

Here are a few late highlights of April:


I went for a girls road trip to SLC and ran one of the most fun races to date. We had a team dinner the night before at mom and dad's house and stayed up way to late giggling. A few of us almost missed the Trax to get up to the U, and when we did get up there, couldn't find our running partners...but it was SUCH a great race. Perfect weather, lots of crowds to cheer us on, great course, etc. It was the first time my parents and sister have seen me race. Hopefully I have inspired them to do it with me next year. After I was done, I was ready to do it again the next really was that much fun!

This is me passing through Sugar House, close to my sisters' house. My 7 year old nephew ran down the street with me and yelled to his friends, "That's my aunt!"

It is so much more fun to run with friends. Some were cheering for me when I came through, others I cheered for when they came through. What great memories!

All of the Young family came to stay at our house for several days. Mark and Rosy came from Orlando for a vacay, and Vegas is a good meeting place for everyone else. It was quite convenient that they were all here for Tay's big day. He was thrilled that everyone was there, and that he got new Heelies. He has been waiting for a long time.

Marissa took family pictures for us. It was freezing cold and windy, and no one was prepared for bad weather, so the little girls had a hard time. I will post some of the other awesome pictures next time!
