Yesterday was our second tournament game and we played the Angels. The last time we played them we got our booties kicked but last night was a totally different story. the kids played great! It was one of the most exciting games i have watched. The Angels are one of the better teams so the kids were nervous about playing. The last inning ended and we had won by 2. The umpire however said there was still a minute left on the clock and started another inning. The Angles rallied and got 5 runs. We were up to bat, had scored one run and needed one to tie and two to win. There were two boys on base and only one out and the umpire called the game due to time. Thinking we had lost I was so mad. But turns out we did win. The rules state that if the game goes over more than 1 hour 45 minutes then they take the score from the last inning. The best part of the night however is that my bot hit his first ever HOMERUN!!!!

Playing catch up...again

So things have been a little crazy the last few weeks. This post will be a little long but feel free to just look at the pictures. That's the fun part anyway.

A few weeks ago my sister in law got married. We had a great time at the wedding. The kids looked super cute and danced the night away. When it was time to go they were actually happy to leave and were asleep before I got up the stairs to tuck them in.

My little man isn't so little any more. He was antsy waiting for the wedding to start since we got there an hour early. I found him watching the players golf. He is so CUTE!!!
Madisen loved her dress. She posed for about 5 minutes. I just think this one is so cute. She was so serious and trying to "act like a model."

Tanner LOVES the YMCA dance. Here he is as one of the Village People during his favorite dance of the night.

There have been a lot of changes in our ward so our Pinewood Derby kept getting pushed back. The day finally came and the boys were more than ready to see how their cars stacked up to their friends. Tanner's car did well falling right in the middle of the pack. All in all the boys had a fantastic time and so did we!!!

The car is finally finished. Tanner was so funny saying, " I might not win but my car looks gooooood."

Hey batter batter!!! The official Little League season is over and we are now playing in the tournament. They won their first game yesterday and will play again this week. Tanner played so well. His first up to bat he hit a triple and I freaked out. He could have turned it into a home run because he is super fast but our third base coach stopped him on third. His second up to bat he got a double!

Last but not least we have big news. NO I'm not pregnant, I got my tubes tied Monday so we are officially done having babies. The decision has been made for along time but I made it permanent a week ago. We love our kids and feel such a huge responsibility to raise them right in this crazy and sometimes scary world. We are so blessed to have healthy, happy, funny, smart, (I could go on and on), kids. Thanks to Cristen for having another baby so my kids can get their baby feel.

Race For The Cure

My sister called a couple of weeks ago and asked if I was interested in running the Race For The Cure 5k. With only a couple of weeks to get ready I was really nervous and wasn't sure I would be able to run the whole thing and finished with a decent time. I rallied a few friends who I thought would be interested in actually running with me and it came down to just me and my friend Erica who were able to participate. SAturday morning arrived an I got up at 6:15 which was a miracle in it's self for a weekend. I left the house at 7:10 and picked up Erica, and headed over to the start line in Las Vegas. Feeling as though we were running late we quickly walked from our car to the start line, met up with my sister, her husband, and boys as well as my sister in law and little brother who thankfully had safety pins for our numbers. We pinned on our bibs, started the timer and started running. We finished in 35 minutes and only walked about 10 minutes of the 35. Thanks Erica for sticking with me and my stress fractured shin. We had a great time and are looking forward to our next run!
What you can't see in this picture are the matching pink and black watches we were wearing.
