Weekend Review Part One

Boy did I have a FABULOUS weekend not to mention a LONG weekend! I did a pretty good job of documenting the weekend with photos so there will be lot's to look at for this weekend review.
My weekend began at 3:00 Thursday afternoon. As I like to say "They let us out early from work!" just like they let us out early when I was in Elementary school. This was the best way to start the weekend. Husband and I drove down to Kaysville and spent the night with my family and then the celebration weekend began!

Friday: We [meaning Husband and my family] got up early and headed to the lake. Pineview Lake to be exact. Husband did all our boarding things [he skis in the winter but we are determined to make him a summer boarder] including wakeboarding and surfing! He did so well and I was so proud of him! Here are a few pics from our adventures on the lake.

Husband surfing! This was his first time ever trying this! He had it down after only a few tries!

Looking like a sweet surfer!

Enjoying the sunshine!

My cute baby sister who isn't much of a baby anymore.

Husband getting some sweet air on the wakeboard.
He totally cleared the wake!

Carson is wicked good at surfing and can start going
off the back of the boat. Look he doesn't even get wet!

We had a little dance party on the boat. This is Carson showing off his moves!
Sorry about it being sideways I don't know how to change it.

After boating we went and enjoyed fireworks and family time with Husband’s family in good ole West Point. It was fun to be so close to the action yet still be able to get away from the crowds if we wanted. The fireworks were great! We were right under them and I thoroughly enjoyed snuggling with Husband.


We arose bright and early to run a 5k with Husbands brother. This particular is probably one of the sweetest boys you will ever meet. Mike was hit by a car when he was young and now has some physical and mental challenges. It is amazing how far this kid has come and the great things he has accomplished. He decided he wanted to run the race and began training. Husband and I agreed to do it with him. This race was probably the highlight of my weekend! Some classic comments from the race were:

Mike looking back at us as he takes off right at the beginning says "See you at the crossline! (meaning finishline). I was laughing so hard it threw my breathing off at first.

Mike telling us that he would "prefer not to talk" when he runs.

Mike grabbing a water bottle while running except he ended up juggling it and finally was able to get a hold of the bottle and then proceeded to dump the whole thing over his head.

The race was a blast (not to mention physically challenging, this kid was cruising). Here is a before, during and two after photos from the race.

Before the race. Looking a little tired. It just so happened to be 6:30 in the morning.
And they're off!

Mike collapsed on the groud afterwards.
He is ok, don't worry he got right back up after.

Here we all are a little more tired and a little more sweaty but feelin good!
