The Ragnar

For those of you who don't know I am running the Ragnar, a team relay race where I will run a total of 18.4 miles. I run three different legs 5.7, 4.9 and 7.9 miles. You may be wondering why I am running this race sometimes I wonder to. But the reason I am running is to fight cancer. Alot of us have friends and family that have had cancer and I am running to support those I know with cancer. In order to run the race I have to raise at least 400 dollars. I have had a few wonderful supports, but still need to raise 300.00 if you want to donate, anything will help even $1.00. You can donate by clicking on the link to the side of my page!

Sunday walks

Washington D.C. Trip

Danny had a couple of vacation days saved up at work, so we decided to take a long weekend at the beginning of May to visit some friends in Washington D.C. Since leaving BYU, a bunch of our good friends moved there so we tried to spend as much time with all of them as we could. We stayed with Jenna and Tyler Swinton and spent most of our time with them and their 3 kids, Thatcher, Sterling, and Avery.  We ate great food, went to a fun animal farm (which Morgan requests to go to every day), played at the park, and went on a fun date which included a great restaurant and a crazy game of miniature golf. We also visited the national arboretum (tree park) in D.C. with the Swintons and Erin and Corey and their daughter Kelsey. We spent all of time at the Banzai Tree exhibit which was surprisingly awesome. They have trees there that are several hundred years old and only a couple feet tall. The oldest tree was from the early 1600s. On our last night there, we had a pizza party and were again joined by Erin and Corey and also our good friends Bryce and Katie. Sunday morning was Mother's Day, so Danny and Tyler woke up early and made an amazing breakfast. When Jenna and I came down, they were wearing shirts that said, "We Love Our Jennas." (For those who don't know, my first name is Jenna). It was a pretty quick trip, but we had a lot of fun. It's amazing how you can not see good friends for months or years and instantly just pick right up where you left off. Thanks again, Jenna and Tyler, for having us and providing fun activities.
