Mess Maker

It amazes me that something so cute and little can make such a mess of the house. My sweet little girl likes to empty shelves, cabinets, baskets anything you put stuff in. It cracks me up, I will pick up her last mess and then she is right behind me pulling it all out again.

Scotlyn has discovered the stairs and she is so proud of herself. She also has a new word that we love "yuka" it is so cute when she does it. Our baby is growing up so fast. She will turn 1 in less than 2 months, I can't believe it.

SLC Marathon

I ran my first Marathon on Saturday. I had so much fun, it is such an adrenaline rush. My Mom and Scotlyn dropped me off at the Start line. Thanks Mom! She woke up at 5:00 made me breakfast then had a crazy time trying to get home, all while carrying Scotlyn. We rode the tracks to the Start. They took longer than we expected so I started 20 minutes late, but I liked it because I was passing lots of people so I felt pretty good. My time was 4:23:46. I had great support from my family. Mark, Scotlyn, Mom, sisters, Aunt, cousins and Marks family, Dad, Laurie, Mom, Tim, and sisters were all at the finish line cheering me on. Mark's Dad's house was at mile 10 so I saw them there, then they were at mile 18, 20, 23, then the Finish line. It was so great to have that cheering sqaud it gave me an added boost. I love my family and am so thankful for them . I am so glad I had the opportunity to run a marathon. Thanks to Mark for being supportive and watching Scotlyn on those long runs. Also thanks to Liz, Mandy and Jessi for being my running buddies and for watching Scotlyn when Mark had work.

Before and after the marathon. The dreaded porta potties and then dreaded ice bath.

Start and Finish lines
Larissa got Scotlyn this cute dress and bows for Easter, I love them! My family is always spoiling her she has too many clothes as it is, but I love it. I love visiting my family they are awesome, I wish they hadn't moved away, but it is always fun to visit. This time was just too short.

I had some music on and Scotlyn started wiggling so Mark started dancing with her. She loved it!
