Memorial Day Classic Half Marathon

Last year just in Davis County alone there were close to 300 kids who were victims of sexual abuse. There are a variety of resources available to deal with the perpetrators, but there's not much out there to help the victims of these crimes. The victims are kids. The NO MORE VICTIMS foundation is a charity organization to help kids who have fallen victim to sexual abuse. They help these kids when no one else can. The proceeds from the Memorial Day Classic event in Syracuse today will directly benefit these kids.
This was my first time running for a charity event. So even though Mother Nature didn't wish to cooperate, that wasn't going to stop me. Hopefully my shoes will dry out so I can get back on the road. Finish Time 1:41:39. First place in age group.

Even Superman Has His Bad Days!

Carson received a really bad break to his elbow on Monday afternoon. The next two days were really tough learning to do everything with the right hand when you are left handed. It looks like swimming lessons and T-ball are CANCELLED for June.

Golden Moments

My favorite Easter picture this year, was a random act of kindness from one child to another. During the Easter egg hunt at Honeyville park this year, Carson noticed that his cousin, Kyle, only had one egg in his basket. He took the "Golden Egg" out of his basket and handed it to him. If a golden egg is found you may take it up to the counter and receive a gift in addition to the 5 candy bars that everyone receives no matter the amount of eggs that are collected.
