Fun October Weekend!!

So my birthday weekend Lindsay and Julie decided to come to Denver to visit during the kids fall break! TJ and Colton also decided to come just a day later! As usual we had many events we wanted to do!
On Friday, we headed to Taylor's Cross Country meet to cheer him on! It is amazing how fast he is! I wish I could run 3.1 miles in 20 minutes but I hit about 30 minutes!

It was fun to see him do so well and that we could all be there to celebrate!

Afterwards for a yummy birthday dinner we headed to my favorite mexican restaurant for my birthday dinner! It was so nice to have so many people there for my 32nd birthday!! Phil bought us yummy cupcakes to have for my birthday dessert!
Saturday we headed to Josh's football game! While they lost the game it was fun to be there cheering him on together!!
Sunday Lindsay, Julie, Phil, Taylor, Justin (Phil's good friend) and Lou Lou headed downtown for the Denver RocknRoll marathon!! Phil and Justin were both running their first half marathon! Lindsay, Julie, Taylor and I made up an awesome relay team!! Lou Lou was our driver and did a great job for us! Phil did an awesome job and finished in 2 hours 7 minutes! We are pumped to try to run a marathon in Utah in June!! Our relay team kicked butt too all doing well on our runs!!
It was a fabulous weekend and had so much fun with everyone!

Phil Turns 31!!

Phil turned 31 on September 22, 2010!! We enjoyed a nice dinner out at Texas Roadhouse and we purchased a lovely piece of cake at Safeway to celebrate!! A couple of week's later I did make a homemade German Chocolate cake and we had the Brinkerhoff's and Kylie and Angie Thompson to blow out candles! Hope you have a great year Phil!


So on the unfortunate side of life, I have had to say far too many goodbyes the last couple of months for my liking! First, the Smith's left to move to Utah for Colton's new job! That was very tough as we had loved have them and their little girls so close by!! We miss them all the time!
Than my friend Sharalyn got a great job in Los Angeles and headed that direction the end of September! For the past 4 years Sharalyn, Jeff and I had gotten together on almost every Thursday to watch The Office and Grey's Anatomy and to meet up with each other! It was the end of an era to have her leave and thus our "Finer Things Club" has ended. All good things must come to end I suppose! Here is a picture of the FTC at Sharalyn's goodbye party!

Grandpa Wilson's 90th Birthday

After our fun trip to Disneyland we came home for a few days and than headed to Utah! Grandpa Elgie Wilson was celebrating his 90th birthday and we wanted to be there for the big party!
We arrived late on a Thursday and went and stayed at Lindsay and Colton's so we could see the Smith's and Brinkerhoff's on Friday! It was fun to see the cute kiddos and have Football eve by watching "Remember the Titans" in the new movie room at the Brinkerhoff's!!
Saturday we headed up to Roy, Utah to visit with the Wilson side of the family. We met up with Michelle at Mama Thompson's grave and than headed for a yummy lunch! It was quite the big crew with all of the kids but it was fun to visit and spend time with them! We than headed over to the church gym to see if we could help with anything! It was fun to see all of the old photos and Army uniform of Grandpa's. It was also fun to meet new family members and get to know them. Grandma Lola also gave a really nice gift of a beautiful photo of Sharon before she got married!
After the fun party, we headed back to the Wilson home to ride horses with Diane and Leon! It was such a good time to be there and learn so much about them!
