Lakeside

One of Benson's brothers and his wife and kids moved up to Lakeside in December - we were sad to see them go but we're not gonna lie - they're really fun to go visit! It's like having a family cabin since they're nice enough to let people crash there pretty much all the time.

After we went whitewater rafting a couple of weekends ago we decided to spend the night with them since we were already half way to their house!

We had lots of fun playing with the kids, eating pizza and staying up late listening to Heidi snort from laughing so hard.

Sunday afternoon I had a "picnic" in the backyard with the kids - it was such a beautiful day!

Can you imagine your backyard looking like this?

For our picnic we ate kettle corn I brought up that we got at a baseball game a day or so before. Jake ate tons of it and kept calling it the Baseball Popcorn.

When we were packing up to leave he asked me "Do you think you're gonna take your baseball popcorn with you?", so I let him keep the rest.

I showed Maesyn how the pine trees smell like ice cream.

Kids don't get much cuter than this...

When I was jumping on the tramp the other day I was thinking- how crazy is this that this is my back yard. Moving from a 1100sq foot condo to this huge place is insane. There is so much good, but when our lease is up we will probably get a place in town with a smaller yard and smaller house-hopefully it will still be fun- we need to be closer to town and kids. Moving here sort of like my race history. My first race was a 7 mile fun run (ie my condo) my second race was st. george marathon (lakeside cabin in porter mountain estates). nothing will compare.

oh, and I had my dad take a picture of me smelling a ponderosa just like the one you have of maes. i don't know what happened to it.
AND... i always have an open invitation for visitors. even if we are out of town-i let people I stay (except for weirdos and robbers). I'm trying to get my parents and brother come up when we are all in mexico. how could you say no to the mountains over the heat of the valley. the just need to water my garden.
