1 years old!!!!

Where does time go, it feels like just yesterday we were trying to figure out the car seat to bring the little moose home. Sept.14, Isaiah turned one, and I have to admit I got a little bit emotional thinking how fast time goes. Being a mom, is probably the hardest thing I have ever done, with that being said also the most rewarding. Isaiah is a crack up right now, we just chase around the house playing hide and go seek. I seriously laugh so hard. There was a study done that said the average adult laughs like the a tenth of what a child laughs in a day. I think whoever did that study didn't have kids. Well I will update with the mooses first birthday party pics. Scotty is working on a bench made of skis and a fire pit for the party we will see how it turns out.

These pics are of hiking to Stewart Falls. So beautiful!! On a side note, I think there is nothing hotter than seeing your husband play with your kids. My two favorite boys right here!!!

Deez Beez at the Farmers Market

Here we are with the great idea to sell our honey at the farmers market, which we signed up for before we realized that we had to leave 60 pounds of honey for the bees for the winter. Needless to say we didn't have much honey to sell. So I got to work making chapstick out of the beeswax, honey caramels, black licorice, and granola. It was a lot of work, but fun, who knows maybe I will join the true hippie ranks and become a full time market goer. But first we need to come up with a better name, our name was Deez Beez and this lady came up and asked me "who is Deez". I just started laughing.

Half Ironman

I have had a long standing goal of completing a half iron man for awhile now, it is on my list of a 100 things to do before I die. So this August I finally was able to cross it off the list, by doing the Utah Half. Lets just say this pic sums it all up.......

( that is me at the finish line somewhere between wanting to puke and almost passing out)
The day before I had serious runs, sorry too much info., so I was depleted to begin with. I couldn't keep anything in me. The morning of they almost canceled the swim because it was super windy, so windy in fact that they had a hard time anchoring down the buoy for the swim it kept blowing away. Anyway, they ended up letting us swim one lap of it instead of doing it twice. Lets just say I might have drowned had we done it twice. Some random guy while we were swimming started panicking and shoved me under the safety kayak. I came up underneath the kayak and was kind of panicky myself trying to get air, because he was blocking my way back out. I finally got around him and started swimming again, anyway it kind of shook me up for awhile.
(this is how windy it was, there was waves)
The bike was good though, Scotty and my dad, rode with me for part of the way which was nice because it started dumping rain and it was super windy. The run I broke down, I almost didn't finish, I was super dehydrated and my insides started cramping up. In fact the sorest muscle I had the next day was my stomach muscles from cramping so hard. They gave me coke at one of the aid stations and surprisingly enough it took it away. I was able to finish the race, for a minute there I didn't know if it was going to happen. Anyway, it felt good to finish. I finished third in my age group. I felt good about it considering I haven't felt that depelted physically in my whole life. I was just glad to finish.

Bees, Bees, Bees

is our first year doing bee hives, and so we don't have a lot of the equipment that goes along with it.

So here are the pics you have all been waiting for.....the famous bees. So many of you have already heard the story of harvesting the honey, but for posterity sake I need to tell it one more time. T
