A LiTtLe Bit of This......And LiTtLe Bit of That!

Here's just a little peak at what we have been up to lately.
Who can't resist a SpOoN mE??

Mia can't get enough of this YuMmY frozen yogurt!

It's always a party on Grandpa Roper's farm. Here, we are trying to get up close and personal with Grandpa's newest additions......the DuCkY's. They weren't being very outgoing today.

Nothing quite like the first ATV ride!

On Sunday, Primary Children's had a Memorial Tribute honoring all the children that passed away last year. It was such a special program and was comforting spending some time at the hospital and seeing those that cared so much for Kate. Afterwards, we spent the rest of the afternoon at Sugarhouse park feeding the ducks. Mia was more interested in eating the bread than feeding it to the ducks. Silly Girl!!!

I must say that I'm a little disappointed that we went from 50 degree weather to 90 degree weather. SeRiOuSlY!?!?! Where did Spring go??? However, I can't complain about spending some time outside soaking up the sun. We spent the afternoon with Katie and her kids. Katie was one of Kate's nurses in the NICU and we have stayed in touch and have become really good friends. Mia had so much fun with the kids, but had even more fun playing in the pool!

Mia showing off her best side!
And last but not least....This past weekend I ran in the Ogden Marathon. My sister-in-law, Michelle, and I ran it as a relay. I ran the first half and Michelle the second. Michelle rocked it, finishing in just under 2 hours. You wouldn't guess she had a baby just 5 months ago!!!!

4 Down......8 More To Go!!

I want to be like you when I grow up. I'm so proud of you and Michelle for being stud-muffins. Your hair is gorgeous - I love it! I'm sorry I had to blow you off today. I was looking forward to snuggling with Mia.

It was fun seeing you. You look so great! And I'm proud of you doing 1/2 that marathon, that's so awesome....maybe one day I'll be able to say I've done a half...maybe. Little Mia gets cuter and cuter!! She is adorable.

I'm surprised we don't cross paths more often. Nick ran in the Ogden half this past weekend and we spent Sunday afternoon at Sugarhouse park too!

Cute pictures!!! Mia is such a cutie!!! I am proud of you on the half marathon. I would like to say that I have done a half, but I am just training for a 5k. I said that I would never run, but all of you that are running have made me feel a little guilty, so I thought what the heck, I'll give it a try! Wish me luck!!!

Lisa said...

You are doing awesome on your running goal for the year! You are makin me feel guilty for not doing anything. And I love Mia's little pig tails. She looks so big with them!

Hey Marcae, it's been awhile... I've given up on blogging for the time being, but since I've started working part time graveyards at the hospital, I have tried to catch up on what everyone is up to.
I can't believe how big Mia is... seriously adorable! And if you couldn't tell from everyone elses comments, you have the cutest hair! Good job on running... wish I had your motivation... the only thing that motivates me is a pillow and food... btw I'm pregnant again. Anyways- take care! Angie
