I'm all about not hand me down costumes. Taylor's from aunt Jaime, Ellie's from aunt Calley, Cody from the neighbor. We had a great time knocking in our new neighborhood in Vineyard. We love our neighbors.

grandma bagley

My sweet grandma passed away on October 2. I feel a void in our family with her gone. She was the matriarch of our family and set the standard for almost everything. She influenced me more than I probably realize. I am sad to see this generation that valued thrift, hard work, agriculture and self-sufficiently pass away. They saw the world make huge changes during their lifetime. I loved hearing her stories of raising her children, she had a great memory. I will miss so much about her. She and Taytay loved each other too, and Tay always gave her kisses.

Apparently I really like yellow and blue. Who knew?

color me rad denver

September 28 was our 3rd race of the year in Denver. I flew in with Ellie a couple days before. We were giggling and laughing the whole plane ride over. She is at such a fun age, I can make her laugh so hard too. Again, we helped at packet pick up and at the race the next day. Ellie and I ran the race with a deaf woman who had lost her group and had no way to find them. She was so sad and I asked her if we could run with her. It was a fun experience. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket This is Lindsey Leiker and her two cute kids. She loves mud runs, her husband is a Navy Seal, and she is an amazing mom. And endlessly positive. I just think the world of her. She's been crucial to the success of our races in Colorado. Photobucket Saturday night we headed to downtown Denver to Larimer Street and walked around. It was magical. Window shopping, ice cream and checkers, dinner out on the patio. I think I loved it mostly because it reminded me of my childhood as an only child hanging out with my mom and dad and getting all the attention.
