Sunday was Vaughn's birthday and it was such a gorgeous day! I tagged along with him and our friend Ty to visit the Harwards for dinner and dessert. His mom made a Hawaiian feast that was so delicious! There was Kalua pork, teriyaki chicken, rice and salad. Vaughn and his brothers and sister did tricks on the trampoline, they are all so acrobatic, and then we ate ice cream cake! We met some friends afterwards at a school just down the street and flew a gigantic kite in the grass field. I watched the boys struggle with it because there wasn't enough wind and Vaughn was taking pictures of course, he took this one of me. It was a very fun day!

Saturday was the half marathon in Gunnison. Carolyn, her husband Ray, and I all were very anxious. It was freezing that morning and there were only about twenty or thirty people running. There really was no official starting line, the caravan just pulled over on the side of the road and everyone jumped out. Like I said, it was freezing so all of the runners were trying to stay warm and keep their muscles loose. Then suddenly, we were all rounded up and a man on a phone said, "Go" and just like that we were off! I was making good time but by mile 10 I just absolutely had to pee so I stopped and was passed by Carolyn, I knew I wouldn't be able to catch her after that. We all finished with our best times and Ray did so well, this was his first half and he had never ran more than 10 miles before the race. Carolyn finished in 1:49 and I came in at 1:50.53 and Ray crossed the finish line at 2:08. It was so much fun and we are all looking forward another race.

So April is going by so quickly. Easter was fun, was able to visit with relatives at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Hillary had so much fun meeting everyone! Also there were tons of birthdays this month: Mal, Annie Laurie, my new sister-in-law, Uncle Paul, both of my grandmas, and two of my good friends Michael and Vaughn. And of course there was my big brother's WEDDING! Tons of fun and a great excuse to eat, eat, eat!
