Provo City Half Marathon

Last weekend I ran the Provo City Half Marathon.  Last time I ran a half was two years ago, before I got pregnant with Owen.  It's been something I've been wanting to do since I had Owen (last February) and I can finally check it off the list.   

Collin and Traci came down for the weekend and they ran the Relay Half, along with our friends Abby and Taylor Zmoos. 

And our friends, the Blomquists showed up before and after to show their support. Cory showed up pre-race with Gu's and water and Bree showed up to cheer all of us on as we finished! We are lucky to have such great friends.

Brett and Owen were great cheerleaders too.  They showed up along the course to cheer me on and seeing them always gave me an extra boost of energy.   At about mile 10, Owen saw me and came running towards me with his arms open, saying "mama". 

Owen might look mad in this picture, but really his mouth is just full of the french toast they served right after the race.

We had friends over Saturday night for a Cinco De Mayo Party.  We had a great spread of Mexican food and desserts, but really it was just an excuse to get together.  Traci and Collin stayed with us for the weekend, so whenever they are here we try to get everyone together.  Each couple was assigned a minute-to-win-it game to bring. 

The "get the oreo from your forehead to your mouth" game.  So funny to watch.

Pull all the tissue out of the box in a minute (pulling one tissue at a time).

Stack three golf balls.....this one is impossible.

But I love the concentration faces.

I didn't get pics of the mummy-wrap challenge, but after the minute-to-win-it games we had a limbo contest {haven't done that since like the 3rd grade) and played Mad Gab. 

Such a fun night with good friends.  And believe it or not, Owen slept through all the ruckus!
