Memorial Weekend May 21-25

We left Thursday evening and headed to the Flaming Gorge cabin with the Harmon’s, Vance’s, Clifford’s, and Kohl’s. (Clifford's aren't pictured above because they had to leave early) We had a great time—despite the torrential downpours. We did a beautiful 7 mile trail run from the damn to little hole, boys went fishing, hiking, etc. We did the “damn” tour, visitor's center, ate at the lodge, played woofle ball, night games, bike rides, hiking, and cards. It was a fun time had by all-- I should say all that didn't catch the cabin plague. So Kaden, Andrew, and Jill had a great time when they weren't puking :).
Tanner loves hiking and playing in the rocks by the cabin.
The kids stop to play on the rocks.

Fishing before the rain storm that soaked us all as we ran from the lake to the cars.
Flaming Gorge!
Enjoying the views at the Gorge. After church at Dutch John.

Muddy Buddy Race and Meeker Weekend

The Meeker’s came to visit us (and the Vance’s) for the weekend. We had a great time hanging out with our Philly (now SLC) friends. Tyler, Kennan, and Nate spent most of the weekend mountain biking.

Angie, Erin, and I competed in the first annual Muddy Buddy race—which by the way was way harder than we thought. Sorry Erin. Basically, you teamed up with a buddy and one person would mountain bike a mile drop, the bike and the other person would run a mile to the bike hop on and drop it at the next mile. Well the first five miles was very bumpy and uphill. It was a 10 mile loop—fun, but more intense than we had anticipated. Jill was my muddy buddy and I think we took 1st out of the girl teams.

Jeena, Angie, and Erin survive the race!!

Palisade Half Marathon in May



This was the first year for us to run the Palisade Half Marathon. It was a small, but organized race. A little chilly at first, but lots of fun. Pictured (Tarra, Jeena, Jill, and Angie) only a small representation of the Frunners made this shot.
