Bikini Boarding at the Bird

Nothing's better than snowboarding in the morning and then swimming in the afternoon...that must mean spring boarding weather must be here! Thanks to the Bird for remaining open on these warm pre-summer days and thanks to the 801 for having such crazy fantastic weather!

Finally! Some friends and I dressed up and traveled to the Thanksgiving Point big screen to take part in the STAR TREK 2009 Premiere! Yes you could definitely say we are all trekkies, Spock going as far as dying his hair for the role! I love love love premieres, however, they did this one differently, instead of having it at midnight they did it at 7 the night before instead. As much as I love midnight showings I can't complain cuz I do hate staying up that late!
I had the most killer outfit because I have the best mother in the world! I feel like I have my own personal seamstress! Our future costume shop plans are still in the discussion stage.
Sidenote: My amazing light up communicator came straight from a cereal box, Kelloggs special baby!!! Thanks KY!
I can't say it's the most amazing premiere I've ever seen but it is honestly a great movie and I would reccomend it to anyone! You don't have to be a Star Trek fan to enjoy it! Can't wait for the next one!

Marathon Mayhem

6:15 early start means we need to be at Mile 11 (Cottonwood Elem.) by at least 7:50 just in case my mommy is feeling speedy! Kylee and I roll out of bed, take care of the spoiled and dependent bathtub pups, leashed up Ivy, and ran down to our post!
After lounging in camp chairs for a few minutes, there she was, jogging along Holladay Blvd. towards us in the distance! She still acts surprised and happy to see us even though we are always at the same spot every year! This time however, mother was distressed….she had missed her first orange juice drop (she ditches bottles of orange juice along the route) Luckily Kylee and I were to the rescue! After persuading the very confused Ivy, (she didn’t know whether to continue running with mom or stay with us) we dashed home, mounted the Metropolitan scooters and raced to the gas station to get some OJ!
OJ packed under the seat, and we were off…the goal was to meet her at mile 19 which is supposedly right before Liberty Park. For some reason they don’t even let scooters ride along the route in the opposite lane so we had to park and dash down 5th east. We scouted a bus bench where we decided to stop and wait: 25 minutes later and still no mom…she had miscalculated mileage and we were actually at mile 22…when we realized it was going to be a while we decided to split up: Kylee would continue up-route and I would run back to get one scooter and meet up with her when she spotted mom.
She finally spotted mom in the distance but we both wanted to surprise her so Kylee hid until I got there, then she hopped on and we sped off to intercept momma at the next street. We were a little behind her when we parked so Kylee and I had to sprint a few blocks to catch up…I’m sure we were a spectacle in our huge scooter helmets racing after my mom in flip flops screaming for her to stop….
It turned out to be a very successful adventure and I think Kylee and I definitely should take credit for knocking at least a couple minutes off mom’s time due to the OJ energy burst!
We are all so proud of you MOM! We all love cheering you on! Can’t wait till you get to #100! Maybe that’s when we’ll all run with you!
