A Bridge Too Far?

Last weekend we met Kevin, Caroline and family at Lake Havasu for the Half Marathon run. Ken, Kevin, and Caroline ran and I stayed with the kids.
( I think I got the best end of that deal.) The 13 mile race course went over the London Bridge and along the lake shore. They each finished the race with times that were their own personal best! Finishing times were 2:02, 2:05 and 2:09 for those who are interested in these things.

After the run, we enjoyed seeing the London Bridge and playing on the beach at the lake. Yes, the real London Bridge has been moved from England to the Arizona/California border in the middle of the desert. Who comes up with these ideas??

The pictures below show the baby and I in front of the vacation house we rented in Lake Havasu City, AND the 4yr old and 2yr old having fun at the pool and hot tub just across from the house. It was much warmer there than in SLC, which was a welcome change.


















On the way back to Farmington, we decided to stay in Las Vegas one night.
What happened there will be the subject of my next blog.

I hate cliff hangers...

I thought "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas," but do tell. . . .

Actually, I was thinking of something along those lines for the title of the next blog!
