2012 wasatch ragnar relay.

such a great time... love these girls. these pictures are all out of order and taken from everyones phones-none of us managed to bring a camera.   highlights included:

-utah ragnar is out of control huge and crazy! easily double the size of the others i've done.
-the ridiculous metallic orange van we ended up with when the rental company completely overbooked 12 vans. it ended up being perfect for our "holy guacamolies" theme.
-pedro, the pinata donkey, that rode up top the entire duration of the race AND ran across the finish line with us.
-biscoff spread ($4 at walmart!) with fancy white bread from utah (? can't recall the name..?)... so funny the foods you crave when running this crazy race.
-the heat! and the crazy inclines! not a huge fan of a 7.8 mile uphill leg as my final leg of the race.
-squeaky cheese! so good.
-park city recovery night/day.
-NEW FRIENDS!! love them.

it was also so fun to spend a day with my dear family when i first got to utah and before i met up with my team mates! (...and thank you-thank you-thank you so much tashi, for saving the day and pulling detective work in locating the jacket/drivers license/debit card that i dropped in the salt lake airport! ...the first of many crazy things that happened on this trip. i was such a nervous wreck when i realized it was lost..)

lola does not love to sit still for a picture, so to update gma's wall- one of these will have to do. (funny how my own personal family life takes the back seat when it comes to real photos.) BUT she does love to have her hair braided and i am happy to do it every single day. even if it only stays in until she pulls it out a few hours later.

lola tests my patience daily. constantly into something and wanting to help me with everything i do. most days i have to take a deep breathe and remember where i am and that she needs my love and attention more than anything.

..i love her dearly. she has my heart. merv and i can not imagine what kind of wonderful human she will become with all of that ambition. hopefully we can teach her how to treat people with compassion and love. we are so lucky to be in her life. ;)
