Ragnar Relay Las Vegas 2010 - 195 Miles

Mason ran his 4th Ragnar Relay last month with Team Chasqui and had a blast!  He has started talking about how next year he wants to try running a Ragnar with an Ultra Team (team of 6 rather than 12), he is nuts! I don't know if he'll really run it on an Ultra team next year, but I'm sure he will someday. This year he ran about 20 miles, on an ultra team it would be double the distance. 

Well done Chasquis!

"Halloween is Spooky"

Cooper was super excited for Halloween this year. He kept telling us "Halloween is Spoooooky." 
 Dane loves all the candy that Cooper brought home, but he didn't care for Trick or Treating and he despised his costume.

All of the cousins except for Parker...we missed you buddy.

Fun with Stacey

Last Saturday my good friend Stacey from Utah called me to tell me that she was here in Las Vegas visiting her in laws. I was so happy, we met up at Target for lunch and it was great. Sure, it was nothing like the old days when we would go out to lunch and talk for hours, I had my two boys with me and she had her two girls, it wasn't very relaxing but it was lot's of fun. I hope you come again soon Stacey, maybe this time we could even get lunch somewhere a little classier like McDonald's or something.

Cooper was so excited when I told him that we were going to Target to see Pearl. The whole way there he pretended that he was talking to her on the phone and was asking her what "section" she was in. I think Cooper & Pearl are pretty darn cute together!

Cribs are for Babies

Dane has been able to climb out of pack and plays for months now, and on Friday he realized he can climb out of his crib too. Friday morning when Dane started making noise Mason & Cooper went into his room to get him. Mason sat on the rocking chair for a minute and teased Dane a little bit (all good Dads tease once in awhile), from our room I heard Mason say "Do you want to get out of your crib Dane?" That's when it happened, I guess Dane assumed his Dad had given him permission, so he climbed right out. Mason said that Dane climbed out like a stealthy spy, like he had done it a hundred times before. 


I had to tuck Dane in like 5 times for his nap on Friday... there was just no keeping him in that crib, he just climbed out over and over. Saturday we set up Cooper's old toddler bed and Dane loves it, he went right to sleep, he has done great! He feels like a big boy and loves it!

My Nursery Boy

Dane started nursery today!!
Dane was very excited to start nursery at church today. He went right in and started playing with the toys, and didn't even notice when I left. When Church was over and I went to pick him up they were playing with bubbles and he didn't want to leave, I guess that's what you call a successful first day in nursery. 

I sure love my handsome little man!

I seriously can't believe that Dane is officially 18 months old! I love him to pieces. He is my sweet little cuddle bug, he gives me big hugs all day long. It just makes my heart melt when he runs from across the room to wrap his cute little arms around me for a few seconds.

I love you Daney-boy, you are such a blessing in my life!

Cooper's 1st Soccer Game

Cooper had his first soccer game on Saturday, it was lots of fun to watch. It was really hot and Cooper was grumpy at first but once he started playing he did great and had a lot of fun. He even scored an awesome goal! Go Sharks!

Cooper's Grandma & Grandpa came to watch and Grandpa took lots of great pictures for us. Thanks Allan!
Cooper's Team: The Sharks

Cooper means business. Check out the clenched fists.


This cute little girl was an awesome little soccer player. She probably scored like 15 goals. After the game when the teams shook hands Cooper told her "You're.. You're just too good."

 Cooper was upset that he tried to score a goal and it didn't work.
He kept telling us "It just won't work!"

Cooper getting some tips from the Coach.
