Temple Square in the Spring

One of our favorite Sunday afternoon activities is to go to Temple Square, and a couple of weeks ago was the perfect time to go. The flowers were in full bloom and it was absolutely beautiful, not to mention the perfect Utah spring weather. The only less-than-perfect thing about the day was my picture taking abilities. I look forward to the day I have a really nice camera and get to take some photography classes. I just hope my kids are still young when I get to do that. I LOVE taking pictures of them!!! It's my way of freezing time and keeping them young. They grow up way too fast!

I love in-action shots. I can't believe I got one this cute.

Any suggestions on BW photos?

The Salt Lake Half Marathon

On April 18, I accomplished one of my New Year's resolutions and ran the Salt Lake Half Marathon with Adam! Adam was kind and ran with me the entire way. I could tell he would have liked to run faster, but he kept saying, "I'm right where I want to be." So, other than my painful blister that developed around mile 3 and the tenditis in my foot that started hurting about mile 5, it turned out to be more fun than I expected. Once I had done the 10 mile training run, I knew I would at least be able to finish the race if nothing more. Then with all of the people, running on the streets through the city, and perfect weather...it was a lot of fun. I'm not sure if it is something I plan to do again, but maybe.
