Draper Temple to witness my nephew, Corey, get married. So windy and FREEEEEZING! RJ, Kaydan, and Braden trying to get warm in the car!

The wedding luncheon at Magelby's was so delicious... Here's Ryan, Sienna and Braden.
And here is RJ, me and Conner...
Conner was loving the chocolate cake. And yes, we ate our dessert FIRST! It was vacation after all...

Turkey Trot

Our school has an annual turkey trot, which is a big fundraiser. The kids are supposed to get sponsors who pay a certain amount per lap. There is a girl and boy winner for each grade and they win a real frozen turkey for running the most laps. Ryan teased the kids and told them we wouldn't have Thanksgiving unless one of them won us a turkey. I was so proud of all three kids, they took the challenge very seriously and ran the entire 20 minutes! 5 laps equals one mile. Sienna ran 6 laps, Braden, 7 and RJ ran 10, winning the prized turkey and saving Thanksgiving for the Pinney household!!

If you know Braden, this shot of him running is truly amazing! Last year he ran the entire Turkey Trot backwards! He was really upset that he didn't win this year, but was overjoyed that RJ did.

My Bear Scout

So, these pictures leave a lot to be desired, but here we are! RJ earning some more arrow points for cubscouts. He really loves scouting, it will be weird in a couple of weeks when he becomes a Webelos scout and is no longer in my den. I am thinking I might need an assistant...

Flag Football

RJ loves soccer and is pretty good at it. But this year, by the time I thought of signing up, I was too late and registration was closed. So RJ tried out for tackle football and didn't make the team! But it worked out perfectly when we discovered flag football! RJ loved it and did really well. He was the fastest boy on the team! Next year there will be a quandry - soccer or football? We shall see...

Nap Time

Sometimes I'm a little slow getting Conner in bed for a nap, poor baby...
