4th of July

For the 4th we went with Trent's family to...
We had a great time! The weather was beautiful. It was nice to spend some time with Trent. He has been out of town a lot for work so all the time I can get with him.

Ragnar 2013

Another one down in the books! This was my 6th and Trent's 7th! I can't believe we have done that many.
We were 742nd out of 1386 teams. Not too bad!
We ran for 33hrs 22min & 18sec. That is a long time to run.
Trent's tramp stamp :)
Oh the Honey Buckets...
It was super dusty! If you look close enough you can see Trent running through the dust haha. It was so dry that he got a bloody nose and had to stop for min. 
We had a good time, but I'm definitely glad it is over. We think we are going to take a break from Ragnar for a year.........but we say that every we will see.

Ogden 1/2 Marathon

I don't know how people run full marathons. A half was good enough for me. I have never ran over 8 1/2 miles at one time so I was pretty nervous about running for that long.
It was pouring rain and it didn't let up once. I ran in my pink poncho the whole 13.1 miles. It was beautiful though. The rain made the canyon so green. I'm really glad I ran in my poncho because it kept my body dry and I kept warm but by the end I couldnt move my hands, they were so cold! My shoes were drentched. I tried to avoid puddles at the beginning of the run but after the first 2 miles I gave up on that and ran through them. It was a really neat experience though. I think I will do one again and hopefully it will be better weather. I ran it in 2 hours 25 mins.
Now I can check 1/2 Marathon off the Bucket List!

St Lucia Extras

Baywalk was the mall center we did all of our shopping...
Trent's sand castle. He had a sand castle building contest with these two cute 8 or 9 year old boys. Trent definitely won. 
Huge caterpillar!
We ordered a banana split at the resort and this is what we got...
Fruit loops and Cheerios! It was one of the best banana splits I have ever had!
This guy was selling bracelets and necklaces and wanted Trent's Sosiety hat so he gave Trent 2 bracelets for it haha.
This place has the best ice cream! We had it almost every single day!
Loved spending a week with Trent! We had such a great time...I'm sad it's over. I hope that we can go back again! Love you Trenton!

St Lucia: Monday-Tuesday

Monday we went to the Pitons. The Pitons are two mountains that are right next to the ocean and are a popular tourist place in St Lucia. There is a restaurant that sits in between them and so while you are eating you sit in awe looking at the scenery. This was in my top 3 favorite things we did on the trip. The pictures do not do it justice. When you are looking out at the mountains your eyes can't tell if its real or a picture. It was absolutely amazing.
I love this guy!
Our drive through the island.
The cars on the left are parked and the cars on the right are coming towards us, so we had to pull forward park on the left and let the cars on the right pass before we could continue driving. The roads are so small in St Lucia. They don't have any yards either. These houses are all right next to each other with no space to walk in between them.
After lunch we went to an active volcano. It is like Old Faithful in Yellowstone there are a lot of hot pots and sulfur.  
This is a cashew. One of the weirdest things I have ever seen. It grows on a tree, and you can eat the yellow fruit that its connected to.   
Tuesday we went to Pigeon Point. It is an island that they used during the 1700's for like a war base between the French and the British when they . It was a nice hike and the view was beautiful!
I thought this tree was cool. I looks like a giant pineapple.
