BBQ and Rodeo!

Last weekend we were able to get together with a bunch of our friends down in Heber City.
A couple of us went down early so the boys could play some golf while the girls just hung out and relaxed. We had a nice BBQ, the boys played football, and a couple of us decided to try out ridin the mules! Jesse and I both have not ridden horses much if any. And lets just say I appreciated the people at the rodeo a lot more..especially the moment it started galloping and I felt like I lost control and it was killin my butt.
It was such a pretty area..I loved the view from the front door and all the cute rocking chairs they had. It made me think for a moment that I could live in a small town, but then I thought about how I love living close to everything.
I don't know if this is a bit inappropriate to share (and I don't know what he would think about me sharing) but it sure made us laugh. Kirk, Jesse's friend, who tends to be called the hulk..has such a sweet sensitive side, as his wife says, and he loves kittens. So we decided to have a little photo shoot!

Saturday I did my long run-15 miles. Marathon training coming along...its getting closer. Makes me a little more nervous for it because it not easy running that much and I was exhausted after...and took a long nap!

Saturday night was the RODEO night for the Jensen Family!
I love watching the pre show Mutton bustin'..brave little kids!
The clown I must say had us laughing this year..
As well as this cute little girl Macie Jane.
And we enjoyed the after show. A part of me would love to try this but then I think about breaking my neck and being paralyzed...
And I can't forget one of my favorite things....POPCORN! mmm! Yes Jesse and I ate the whole bag and it was delicious!

Now I should probably get back to packing our place up because I haven't done much and we have to be completely moved out on Saturday..ugh I just don't exactly know where to start.


  1. Kirk- WOW. There are no other words.

    Happy Packing :)
