Dirty Dash 10k 2011

We had such a great time participating in the Dirty Dash this September 24th.

When I signed up I told everyone I was only going to do the 5k (take the short cut)

but I was having too much fun and ended up doing the whole 10k.
Riley was sick that morning and was unable to join us.

Scott and Jason where the champions. They finished in about 1 hour and 32 minutes.
Me and Cassie along with my girl friends from work finish it in around 2 hours and 15 minutes.
We stayed together. It was funner that way.

We loved it so much we are already talking about next years.

They are having one in June and September next year so we are going to sign up for both.


(Hopefully Riley can join us this time. We missed him and know he missed the fun)

Makenna Marie Cunningham

I was so happy to be in the room when my new niece came into this world.

It is such a great feeling watching the miracle of birth.

She is so beautiful!
Yvonne decided a few months before that she was going to meet her daughter early.
She was right. After a walk around Hoogle Zoo on Prestyn's birthday Makenna was born two days later. (a month before her due date)

It is always fun for the kids to meet there new cousins.

I love this little girl.

Day #4 Zion's Vacation Labor Day Weekend

We cleaned up camp and made one last bus ride to the lodge.

We went our separate ways at this time because Scott had to get home and get some sleep before work the next day.

It was a great camping trip. I love Zions National Park.

I want to go back soon.

Day #3 Zion's Vacation Labor Day Weekend

We decided for day 3 we would take all the kids on the Riverside Walk. Witch is a paved 2 mile walk before the Narrows Trail.

The beginning of the Narrows Trail.

Here is the end of the paved trail.

We started dividing up and find our walking sticks.
Britney and Edris said they would stay with there kids so that their husbands, Scott, Riley, Jason, Tyree and me could go adventure on the Narrows Trail.

The Narrows is rated a strenuous hike which is 9.4 miles round trip.

You spent most of your time in the river.

As you can see in this picture there where some very deep stops along the way.

(Look at the waterlines on our shirts)

This picture is looking down stream.

This is about 2 or so miles in. It was the first time we stopped and dare take out our cameras.

These two pictures are looking up stream.

Note the waterline on Mark. He is about 6' 4", I was swimming in some places to say the least.

We were having so much fun we decided to keep on going.

This is where we turned around.

We all hiked just above this waterfall.

Here is an example of how we got done from the waterfall.

We re-energized here and decided we better turn around and get back the ladies with the crazies.

(the kids)

We figured we did over half the trail so probably 6 or so miles round trip.

Here is another picture of the waterfall as we were saying good bye.Here is the trail if we would have kept going.After we meet up with others we decided to take the kids to a splash pad in Laverkin.

This was James' kind of fun.

The bathing beauties.

Sydney Jane

Ainsley and Letley

Riley and Jason felt there time would be best spent taking a nap.

Grady and Andrew

The parents with Britney behind the camera.

Oh yeah, note the In and Out burger cups.

An air conditioned restaurant was what we needed for lunch.

Day #2 Zion's Vacation Labor Day Weekend

We took the kids on two little hikes on day 2.

The first one we did was called Weeping Rock.

It was just a half mile walk on a paved path.
The cut out area of the rock was really cool.

It is hard to tell in the pictures but it was weeping water over the top of us.

We got up early so we had the trails to our selves.

It was so beautiful there.

The second hike we did was called Emerald Pools.

There were two pools you could hike to.

We did both so it was about 2 miles round trip.

As usual my favorite part is the lush green growing through the red rock.

Just before the first pool there was this beautiful waterfall you walked under on the trail.

Here is a resting spot in the shade at the first pool.

On the way to the second pool we passed through this narrow area with a tree growing up through the middle.

Yeah we made it to the second pool.

One thing I learned in Zions National Park is always to look up.

It is usually your best views.

Here is a picture of the second pool.

We stayed at the end for quit awhile and enjoyed the nature we saw.

Scott with a baby toad.

Riley with a tadpole.
I don't know what this is?

My favorite was the tree frogs.

They were every where.

It was a good day!
