Our Easter Race

You know when you have a full day ahead of you and you pack everything you need and you’re feeling pretty good about yourself and then you realize you forgot the most important thing?

LIKE YOUR CHILD.  OR YOUR CAR.  OR WHATEVER.

Well. That happened to me.

We had a busy day on Saturday with our schedule filled every hour.  Of course I brought my camera (HELLO!  It is my third child!) but I forgot to put an SD card in it.

People, that is like taking your newborn somewhere and forgetting to pack diapers.  YOU MAY AS WELL CALL THE OUTING A FAILURE.

Fortunately, the phone can take pics, right?

David signed our family up to run in a race.  David ran a 5K and I ran a 1 mile race with the kids. (I use the term “ran” very loosely here, it was more like Hannah ran and walked, while I pushed Dallin in the stroller.  I stopped to take a few pics of them running, and Hannah pooped out just before the finish line.)

Here’s the kicker . . . I WON A FIRST PLACE RIBBON.

WHAT?!  I know, I was just as confused as the rest of you are!  I ran a 12 minute mile pushing and chasing my kids and somehow that got me first place in my age division.  Oh, yeah . . . the other thing  . . . somehow I was in the 25-29 age group, so apparently my skin care regime is working!  I thought about setting the record straight, but what the heck . . . (And for the record, I do not have a third child.  The baby belongs to my friend, it is one of her twins, I’m not sure which one I’m holding, but he likes me.)

Check out Hannah rippin’ up the pavement in her Crocs and a dress of course!  Go Hannah!

Dallin thought all of his little boy dreams had come true: I ALLOWED him to run IN the street.  Ah, life was good for him at that moment.

After our race, we headed out to Thanksgiving Point to attend their Easter egg hunt and other Easter festivities.

NEVER doing that again.  Kids were trampled and they cried as the PARENTS grabbed as many eggs as they could.  IT was over in less than 5 seconds.

To top it off, it was freezing and the lines for the bouncy slides rivaled the rides at Disneyland.

Not worth it I tell you.

Plus, the Easter bunny was kind of scary to Dallin.  Come to think of it, the Easter bunny is sort of creepy.  He just doesn’t have the same appeal as Santa.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
