Rodeo Queen (and King)

We recently went to a high school rodeo where my nephew and niece rocked the arena.

Brady and TJ took third here. The weekend before they took 1st place at two rodeos. They are both ranked number one in the state.
Brady roped his calf very quickly. He just needs to throw the calf down with a little more strength.
Cheyenne roped the steers horns very quickly and looked great doing it.
Grace and Tashina had fun watching.
.Isn't she beautiful.

Prefontaine Lives!

A few weeks ago we participated in the annual Butch Cassidy 1oK and the legend Steve Prefonatine decided to run it as well, oh wait that was actually Thomas. Dad, Suzanne (as a race bandit), Thomas and I all ran it. It was a beautiful fall day and we all had lots of fun.
Dad defended his title as 1st place finisher in his age group for two years in a row(1:03:01.4). Tom took third in his age group (40:50.0), and it's a very difficult age group. Suzanne PR'ed and I just had fun finishing two months after giving birth(55:27.7).

Happy Halloween!!

We had a fun Halloween at the school carnival and trunk-o-treating!

Eliza was scared of the man on stilts.

Porter liked to honk his own nose.

Our little pumpkin.

Eliza was a "nice" witch. And scared of most of the costumed people at the carnival.

Now we get to enjoy the effects of all the candy they got.
