First place, Wrestling, and Pictures

Beau had his second race two Saturday's ago. He had so much fun and took FIRST PLACE!!!!


It was so dusty and hard to see. Beau was so dirty when he got done. He said it was such a fun race !
When he came in....I was expecting to not see him for at least another 20 minutes. He was mingled in with the other Amateur and Expert riders. I was pretty sure he won but didn't want to say it. So I told him he was the first "Green tagged" rider that I had seen come in. He kept smiling.



We went to the awards ceremony and he got a plaque/trophy. Caleb kept holding the plaque and saying "Dad, always take first, never loose." HA! We were all so proud and excited that he took FIRST!

We also got to have dinner with Uncle Don. (Beau's dad's twin brother) We always love seeing him when he is in St. George. The kids call him "Grandpa Don" and love him to pieces!!

And of course, it wouldn't be me if I didn't get pictures of some sort of scenery. I loved these cactus bushes everywhere at the race! They were beautiful!



Also, Caleb has started Wrestling. This will be his third week of practice. He loves it and we are so glad he has found something that he loves and is naturally good at. He towers over the kids in his age group, so they started pairing him up with the first and second graders.

I am sure I will get (Beau took these pictures) more pictures soon of him in action! Plus I have a lot of catch up posts to do! We have been busy busy busy this month. My brother Eli and friend came and stayed with us and then all my sisters w/ their babies (except Ali) came and stayed. So I have lots to blog about!







Also check out my new photography sessions by clicking here! ( I have about 3 more sessions to get on there so keep checking back)

Those biking pictures look so cool--I really would like to see one of Beau's races some time. As long as drunkards don't try to pick up on me like they did on you! :)

Way to go Beau!!! That is awesome! I see you went to THE best resaurant in town...we llllove Pancho and Lefty's!

Christina said...

Where to start...okay...yeah for Beau! What fun. And you are ALWAYS hosting, girl! How do you do it? It's great that your family will come visit so often. I guess that makes it easier living away from everyone. It must be one heck of a party at your place! And while you're at it, maybe I'll come visit next week:) I'm looking for warmer weather anyway. I LOVE the cactus pics. Good job there! And...let's see...oh ya- I also love the new photo sessions pics too! You are just one ammmmmazing woman!!

Ok! You are so talented. Your pictures are amazing. I love looking at all of the fun pictures. You did a great job. I wish we lived closer so I could have you take my Family's pictures.

I love the picture of all the boys! I refuse to even tell Nick about this post - or it will get his biking itch going, and I'm not sure I'm up for that. What a fun couple of weeks you have had! I can't wait to hear more. :)

Mandy said...

Congrats to Beau. That really is awsome.

I can't believe you and Janalyns' brother are old enough to go on a mission. WOW!! Tell Eli congrats. My brother in law served in England and LOVED it.
