About Us

My photo
Mike and I have been married for 10 years now, and luckily we still like each other! We've been together for over 15 years and we've spent it traveling, backpacking, climbing, skiing, triathloning, marathoning, sailing, eating, and going on as many adventures as possible. We now have two beautiful boys, Sam & Charlie, and we couldn't be more excited about seeing a whole new world through their eyes in the years to come!

Weight Watchers Update

I weighed in today, and I was down 3 lbs for the week, YAY!!! I'm so excited because I've been pretty much staying the same for the past couple weeks even with the breast feeding and the boot camp, which basically means that I've been eating way too much. This week I really stuck to the program and tracked my points every day, so it's really nice to see it pay off.

In other sad news, I did not get into the Spudman Triathlon, which I'm completely bummed about. They decided to make it a lottery this year, and my name wasn't drawn, so I'll have to try again next year. The good news is that this gives me another month of weight loss and training before the Jordanelle Triathlon at the end of August. Wish me luck!

Running in the Rain - Sammy's First 5k

Mike, Sam, and I went down to Provo on Saturday to run a 5k in the rain with my Dad and my brothers. The weather wasn't great, but we had a good time anyway. It was my first post- pregnancy race, and while I was slow and out of shape, I was pretty happy with my time of 32 min 56 seconds. However, this would have been a slow time for me pre-pregnancy, so I'm really going to have to step up my training for Spudman in July.

This was also Mike's first post-pregnancy race, and of course he took 5th place overall with a time of 23 minutes while pushing Sam in the stroller with two untied shoe laces. Why are some people just always in shape, it's not fair!

My dad and brothers did well too. Max took 4th place overall, and Glen took 11th. My Dad took first place in his age group (even if he was the only one!!) with a 5k personal record time for him of 31 minutes.

Sam took first place in the 3 month old division, and he did it all while sleeping!

Here are the pics. Thanks to Lauren for being the photographer!

A Miracle Occurred Last Night!

It was AMAZING!! Last night I fed Sam at 9:30 pm. We were in bed by 10:00, and he didn't wake up until 5:45 am!!!! I couldn't believe it. That's pretty much the entire night!

I have a question for you experienced breast feeders out there: Is this okay for my milk supply? Do I need to wake him up once to eat in the middle of the night, or will my milk be okay if I let him sleep all night? I really want it to last an entire year. Please let me know your thoughts...
