More Easter pictures...



We bribed Kooper to get some pictures in his Easter Outfit he was good for about 5 mins. and then he wanted his candy.

These are the last of the Easter Pictures. I debated about posting the family picture because I don't really like them but decided to post one since we don't get our pictures taken together as often as we should.

Snow Canyon...


Snow Canyon is a state park located right outside of St. George.

Notice the band aids on the knee and hand. Kooper fell so much his poor little knees are pretty beat up. It's a good thing Elmo band aids make everything better.






Kooper loved that his REI backpack looked so much like mom and dads backpacks. He did a great job hiking.

Half Marathon...



Mike has on green short and Nikki was wearing orange.


It ended at the gateway.



The geese picture are from Sunday evening right before we went to the airport.
Mike ran the Salt Lake City Half marathon with his sister Nikki. I think his time was 2 hours and 8 minutes. He was actually passed by the winner of the full marathon. He came in something like 2000th out of 4000 people that is just the half marathon participants. I was impressed with how many people were participating. Mike did so good, and was proud of his time. He liked it so much he wants to do another one.

Easter Egg Hunt...




Kooper Scored this Easter.

Mike was giving me the " I don't want my picture taken" Look. He looks so hot!
I know I have posted a ton of pictures from Easter and my trip to Washington. I took a lot of pictures and wanted to shared them. I feel like I haven't used my camera in forever so I guess I went overboard.

Second Annual Rochelle Bassett Fun Run...

We ran right along the river it was so pretty in the morning. This picture was taken after the run so Mike is a little sweaty but I still like this picture.

All the kids who participated received eggs full of candy and some gift certificates for ice cream.

Kooper would not get a picture with the Easter Bunny, so I had to hold him. I really did not want to have my picture taken. So here I am in all my glory!

Mike Finishing up the 5k
We missed the fundraiser run for my sister last year, I was so happy we were in town Saturday so we could participate. Mike did the 5k, while Kooper and I walked the Mile. Mike was training for his half marathon so he actually ran the 5k twice. I was really tempted to try the 5k but Kooper and I had just as much fun doing the mile. Kooper kept saying he was tired and I held him for part of it. I am sure he was faking because I know he can run for hours without stopping.

Coloring eggs...




Coloring eggs with his cousins

We bought stuff to color eggs about a month ago. Kooper Could not stop talking about it, I had to hide it. When we came to visit Grandma and Grandpa he was so excited to finally be able to color eggs. The moment we landed at the airport he started talking about how we could finally pull out the egg stuff. He has a great memory.

Washington...

Kendall and I at the park.

Kendalls twins Gavin and Tristan

My sister Rochelle and my mom


Rochelle is so great she played catch with the boys.

I took a bunch of pictures at the park the other day while I was visiting Washington. Kooper loved every minute of our visit he had so many cousins to play with.

Retiring the old motorcycle...

We bought Kooper a new bike this week and decided to put the old tricycle , or as Kooper calls it his " motorcycle" away. I told Kooper it would be his brothers motorcycle when he gets bigger. He is a little frustrated, if he pedals backwards his bike stops. His trike did not have brakes like the new bike. I told him he just need to practice, I am sure by the end of the summer he will be cruising all aroud the playground.
