Happy Memorial Day! I’m so grateful for all those who have sacrificed their life so that me and my family can live in a wonderful place with so many freedoms. This morning I’m running a Freedom Run 10k, a great way to start the holiday reflecting on those that gave so much for you and me.

Backing up to this weekend.Thursday night Josh’s cousin came to stay with us while her parents are on a fun getaway. J has been so excited to have her here. We watched Beauty and the Beast(J’s first time) and had popcorn and otter pops.

Friday we met up with Josh’s family and the Curiosity Museum. It was a lot of fun! I have LOVED having a pass to Thanksgiving Point, totally worth it. I think the highlight was the playground outside. J stood in a huge line so patiently to ride this zip line. This kid has no fear!

His face looks scared, but I promise he was not!

Him and Cal also loved the teeter totter and spent a good half hour on them. That night everyone came over for pizza and treats(thanks Lee Ann!) it was a great night.

I didn’t get a run in on Saturday because I woke up with a sore throat and cold. I didn’t feel horrible but I didn’t want to make it worse and then not be able to run this morning. Instead, we went to the aquarium.  None of us had been before so we checked it out. It’s pretty amazing(locals it’s the new one in Draper). We all had a great time exploring and watching a short 3d film.

Later on we went to my in laws and snuck away for a date at the Porcupine Grill. My taco obsession is still going strong, and these did not disappoint. Unfortunately, later on, they did. I was up all Saturday night with food poisoning=( Sunday I felt great and hydrated like crazy!

Sunday night after church, we ate dinner at my in laws. Roast dinners are my all time fav dinner, they never get old. Me and my little buddy being silly(it’s gonna be so weird when it’s not just me and him all the time).

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
