We had so much fun on the 4th of July. We went with Jason and Drea to her dad's house to have a BBQ. We spent most of the afternoon in the pool and eating. We had a blast!! Later that night we all went over to Tumbleweed Park and watched the fireworks.

Craig's 30th Birthday Party

Happy 30th Birthday Craig!!! We had such fun party. It was a Root Beer themed party, and all of our friends brought some Root Beer to share. Craig's two best friends and brother came down from Utah to surprise him. Some of the gifts were a little crazy, but we all got a good laugh. We have some great friends and I know that Craig had such a great time!!!!!

Pat Tillman Race

I am addicted!!! I had my first race on Saturday, and I absolutely loved it. I ran the race with my two friends Chelsea and Hillary. We ran 4.2 miles and the coolest part of the race was the finish line. We ran into the ASU stadium and finished on the 42 yard line. I have to admit that I was pretty freaked out at first to run it, but after many pep talks from my running coach and encouraging words from Craig, I had to think of it as "just another morning run." We left for the race at 5:30 in the morning, we got to the race and got in line to start the race. My adrenaline kicked in immediately. I was so excited. The gun went off and we were off and running, there were 20,000 racers, so of course it was very crowded. I got stepped on 6 times, tripped once, and got ran into, but it was all worth it. As Chelsea and I were approaching the stadium, I couldn't believe that we were almost done, my runners high was going strong and I felt that I could run another 5 miles. We ran into the stadium and I was overwhelmed with the feeling of accomplishment. The race was such a great thing for me and I am already getting ready for my next race.

Ostrich Festival

We attended the annual Ostrich Festival. It sounds a little weird, but it really was so much fun. The city of Chandler puts on the festival every year. Craig and I went with our friends Aaron and Chelsea and we had such a great time. Of course we stuffed ourselves with great "carni" food, there is nothing better than a funnel cake and big Coke to wash it down. We watched the Ostrich races, yes that is a real thing. People actually get on those freakish birds and run them around a track, like it is some type of horse race. I think that Craig's favorite thing was the demolition derby. I think that Craig's idea of retirement for the Sonata would be along the same lines as the demolition derby (poor Sonata). We didn't go on any rides, just looking at those spinning things makes me sick. We had such a great time and I am sure we will be attending next year.

Two weeks ago Craig and I came home from work and we could smell gas leaking from our gas-meter. As the night went on, the smell got worse. We called the gas company and after an hour they came out to check and see what was going on. Craig met him outside and he started testing the meter. He told Craig that "yep it looks like you have a gas leak." He didn't realize how bad it was until he stuck a sensor in the ground to check the gas levels, and the sensor went crazy. He then told us to get out of the house immediately and to go across the street. Craig and I went across the street with nothing but the clothes on our back (which were sweaty workout clothes, gross!) and luckily I grabbed my purse. The gas man then called for back up and they started to evacuate Jason, Drea, and Willis (the cat). They told us that we were not allowed back in our house for night because there was so much gas and there was a chance the house could blow up. They started digging up our front yard, to fix the problem. I called our good friend Chelsea and she came and picked our homeless butts up and let us crash at her house for the night. It was the worst feeling not having anything but the clothes on our backs. The next morning they told us that they still wouldn't let us come back in our house, but they would let us in for 5 min. to get some clothes, and they let us take our cars. To make a long story short, they had to pump gas out from under our foundation for 36 hours. They finally let us come back home two days later. They told us that when the gas lines were installed, something was not installed correctly and it was leaking gas. Thank goodness we are back home, it was a crazy couple of days.

Darcie's Wedding Day

My little sister is now married and I can't believe it.  Her wedding was beautiful, although I froze to death!!!  Congrats Sissy!!!!  I love this picture of Craig and my Brother, apparently Craig really likes him. 
Jason and Drea were so sweet to invite us over for Thanksgiving dinner.  We had such great time. I even made homemade rolls.  It is secret family recipe, and I can't believe that they turned out.  

A little slow so here you go
