Circus Time!

Yesterday we went to the Tangier Shrine Circus at the Omaha Civic Auditorium. We went with Tyler and Bonnie, and Casey and Bobbie. Riley was so excited to go to the circus with Sadie and they had a great time. Riley really liked the tumblers, the elephants, crocodiles, and dancers. Ryan fell asleep a little before intermission, but he really had a lot of fun for the time that he was awake!

Here are some pics!

I took this picture right when the first act started...she was so excited!

Bonnie, Tyler, Parker, and Sadie

We tried to get everyone to look at the camera, but the music started as soon as Bonnie took the picture!

Ryan was passed out by the time intermission started!

We wanted to get Riley a little souvenir to remember the circus. She picked out this inflatable pink snake sword.

Flashback Friday

In 2006 I competed unattached in a few collegiate track meets at BYU. It was a lot of fun, and it felt good to know that just because I was a now a mom, it didn't mean that I couldn't still be a competitive athlete.

Here are some pictures of one of the meets I compteted in:

Such a beautiful view...I miss going to practice there everyday

Future BYU track star!

One of my competitors, Tiffany. It was so awesome throwing against her. She competed in the heptathlon in the Athens Olympics. She is amazing!

Funny kids

I took this picture of Ryan a couple of days ago and I remembered that Riley used to do the same thing when she was around his age...

Children's Museum with the girls

I think the Children's Museum is Riley's favorite place right now...she could spend everyday there. This was actually our second time there this week. It's a great place to take the kids...especially when it's so cold outside!

Flashback Friday

I was looking through some old pictures and I thought these would be fun to share. This was at Casey's parents house when Riley was about 10 months old. It was the first time she really played in the grass without being on a blanket....she didn't really know what to think about it!

Here's a video...we were so mean!

We all went to the Golden Corral together on Thursday. This is Ryan's first time eating ice cream...yeah, he didn't like it very much!

No thanks, Mom!
