Race for the Cure & Lagoon Weekend

This weekend was the 2nd Annual Race for the Cure for me (it's been around forever, but this is only the 2nd time I've ran). This year Melanee and Phil came down and were able to run with me, Paul, July, Cory and Cayman. We had our own team, "Team Boobapalooza" and we made our own shirts. They weren't perfect, but I think they turned out pretty cute. It was such an amazing thing to be running with my sisters. Once again when the theme music started, I couldn't stop crying. I don't know why it touches me so much, but there is just something about seeing 20,000 people running for women they love. We had a great time and I would love to see my entire family there next year. We missed you Dad, Carma and Ryan!!!

After the race, we went to Kneaders in Bountiful and I can't say enough about the Chunky Cinnamon French Toast. The best thing ever!!! After breakfast we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon at Lagoon. It was a beautiful day and I was happy to FINALLY be spending time outside. Paul is addicted to games where you can win stuffed animals (remember the Circus Circus adventure from a couple years ago?), so he and Phil were on a quest to win the biggest prize in Lagoon. They were wheeling and dealing with the employees getting them to give them 1/2 off prices, or double the tries for the same price. It was hilarious to watch, but they ended up with the biggest prizes there. It was so much fun and I am so thankful for my wonderful family!
