Racing Rhett

I am so proud of Rhett!!! He has been working on his physical fittness for the last few months. He has completed P90X and recently raced in two Triathlons. He has lost 40 pounds and looks GREAT! His starting weight was 212 and he is now down to 172. Way to go BABE!

His supporters
This was his last Triathlon in Orem last weekend. He shaved 15 mins off his St. George triathlon.
I am grateful for Rhett's motivation I decided if he could be motivated so could I. I don't have any big triathlon plans but I just completed P90X and feel good about my results. I have lost 18 pounds! I am enjoying taking the kids swimming and on bike rides. Oh and Jessica if you are reading this your old black bike that you got when you were fifteen is still working great Thanks I am still using it.

Easter, Arches & an Anniversary

We were really busy making things for Easter. My kids loved to die the eggs. Ruston Dyed his fingers green and said "Now I look like Shrek."

They were so excited about the Bunny cake especially when I pulled the candy out to decorate it. What a fun tradition Grandma Alder started. Ruston drew a picture of a bunny for instructions. It was so cute he kept saying make sure you look at my instructions before you do the next part.
We even made bunny sugar cookies.
Stuffing the eggs for the big Alder Easter Egg hunt. One of my favorite Alder traditions my Dad always does a great job hiding them.
Lindsay's first Easter

We decided to take the kids to Arches National Park. It was a lot of fun.

I had a lot more pictures but you get the idea. I can't wait for summer so we can be outside all the time and go camping. Every time I think it is Spring it snows again like today. Rhett and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary on the 11th of April. The weather was nice on our wedding day but the next day we woke up to snow. Last night we stayed down town for our anniversary and when we woke up you guessed it there was snow.
