What are you going to be for Halloween?

What are you going to be for Halloween? That is the question Lulu keeps asking everyone she comes in contact with. The other night she was talking with Nick and asking him what he was going to be.

Lulu: "Dad what are you going to be for Halloween?"

Nick: "Ohh, I don't know?? What should I be? Do you have any ideas??"

Lulu: "Well.....?????? How about a dog?"

Lulu: "No, dad you could be a horse"

Nick: "Ohhhhh--that would be pretty cool. I'll have to think about that one."

Lulu: "No, dad--I have the best one for you....YOU COULD BE THE HOLY GHOST"

Nick: ?????????????????????????????????????????????????

What are you going to be for HALLOWEEN????

STGM 26.2 or Bust!

That is the goal "Finish Line"

Nick did it. He ran the St. George Marathon on Saturday. He did awesome! This challenging marathon was completed by more than 7,000 runners. Runners from all states except for Vermont. Only 53% of the runners were from Utah. I saw runners of all sizes, shapes and many with a story. I couldn't help but hold back the tears watching all these runners complete their goal. It was very inspiring.

Nick's time was 3:38:29 Yeahhhh!Anthony encouraged Nick by running with him the last few miles. Nick said he was a "life saver."
Nothing like a dip in the pool with cousins:)
It was fun to spend the day with Anthony, Krisha & Sage

The race wasn't the only challenge...Luke found this scary Black Widow just inside of the garage where we were staying. Let's just say, seeing that spider kept us on our toes the entire trip.
