And....it's finished!!!!

After 5 long months of training, Brad's crazy goal of running a marathon (26.2 miles) was finally accomplished! He and his brother Kyle ran the Top of Utah marathon on Saturday and finished in just over 4 hours. I'm so glad I got to be there to see them finish. It was a big party at the finish line. Here are a couple videos:


The first one is of Kyle and the second of Brad. I have to appologize for the bad video job. I don't have any skills.

Here are the two of them after finishing. I took it as a good sign that they were still standing.







When I asked how the race went Brad said, "I don't think I'll ever run another marathon."


I think I'm ok with that.







While we were in St. George a couple weeks ago, we got to stop and say hi to my mission buddy Tanner and his wife Stacy. They have a little boy named Alex who is 2 months older than Alexa. Look how cute!


On 9-11 they set up 2,996 flags at a park in Tempe. Attached to each flag was a picture and a little bio of each person that had died. Brad and I went and took a look at it. It was an awesome sight and sure made things more real. The pictures don't do it justice.

Sick Kitty Eye

This is my new favorite picture of Alexa.

I went in to get her out of her crib one morning a few weeks back, and she had sick kitty eye. (The term “sick kitty eye” came from my friend, Jamila, from Utah State. Credit where it’s due.) She wasn’t sick, at least she didn’t have the flu or a cold or anything like that, just sick kitty eye. The best part was that Alexa had the BIGGEST grin on her face, like she didn’t even notice that anything was wrong. It was great. I just had to take a picture.

Random Rocky

One of my coworkers sent me this random link yesterday. It took me a couple of goes to figure out what Judge Rocky is saying.



"You betrayed the law." I wish I spoke Russian so I could understand what Drago says back to him. All I hear is a growl/hiss.
