Baby Karson

Welcome Karson Michael Vocana!
7 lbs 3 oz
19.5 inches
He had a few problems and had to go to the NICU. He is doing really well but has to spend a little more time there to finish the antibiotics. I got to Vegas last night and was so excited to go see him. He is so little and cute and looks a lot like Karlee. We can't wait for him to get home. In the meantime I get to spend lots of time with Karlee. Congratulations Vocana family!

NICU visitors have to wear gowns and kids have to wear masks. I think Karlee looks so cute.

St. George

We had so much fun on our St. George trip last year that Carrie decided to plan another one this year. Our planned trip happened to be the day after I got back from the wedding and right in the middle of when we were supposed to move, but those are just minor details. We loaded up the Martin family van and headed down for the weekend. We hiked around in Snow Canyon, watched the Ironman competition, played tennis, ate, and relaxed. It was a great weekend. For some reason the camera only came out on the hike so that's all the pictures we've got.

Unblogged Bloggables

I have somehow gotten way behind on blogging. So many blog worthy things have happened over the past few months.

Card Night/Craft Day

We started getting together to make cards at Gaby's house many years ago. The group has changed over the years but the fun has not. The last time we made cards Kimber was on maternity leave. Her baby is 2 1/2. Card making was way overdue.
Kimber, Breanna, and I took most of the day off work to craft all day. Just for the day I fulfilled my dream of being a stay at home crafter. It was so much fun. We made cute baby wipe cases and lots and lots of flowers. I can't even wait to craft again soon.
Jerry's Goodbye

We entertain ourselves at work by doing funny things especially when people quit. We gave Jerry a proper goodbye complete with some gifts including a giant homemade card.

Race for the Cure
Everyone knows I LOVE the Race for the Cure. It is my favorite race ever. This year it was a crazy day. I was only there long enough to run the 5K, but I still loved every minute of it. If anyone is thinking of getting into running or wants to do the best race ever, join me at the Gateway next May.

Monthly Lunch

Monthly lunch continues at various restaurants. A few months ago we went to the Harley Davidson cafe. We've also been to JCW, Jerk Shack, and Paradise Bakery. I look forward to these each month and can't believe I am missing the next 2 due to conferences.

A couple of years ago I started running with the Generation Gap running group. They all run marathons, lots of marathons. It only took a few months of running with them to be convinced that I needed to run a marathon (Top of Utah). That was almost 2 years ago. After not running a marathon last year, I decided to kick off this year's racing season with the Ogden marathon. Utah weather is so crazy, and we had tons of rain the week of the marathon. I was so nervous about the weather and what I was going to wear(probably not the thing I should have been most worried about). We could not have asked for better weather. It was the perfect day. The course is beautiful, and I loved it. 26.2 miles is kind of long, but I did it! Now I'm wondering what in the world made me think 3 marathons in one year would be a good idea.

at the finish line
Kelly came and ran the last 3 miles with me. I was so happy to see her and have some company for the last few miles.
Becca and I went together. It was great having a friend before the race especially since I didn't run into any of my other friends that were running.

Heritage West Bike Tour

Brett's work sponsored a charity bike ride out in Tooele yesterday. It was so much fun. The ride was 33 miles. We started at the top of a little canyon and ended at Brett's credit union. I forgot how much I love biking. This ride made me so excited for lots of biking this summer.

Karlee is Sleepy

Poor girl. Karlee has been thrown off her schedule lately and falls asleep when she can. I started this post while we were in Missouri. She was so tired at dinner she fell asleep trying to eat.

Karlee loves the park and asks to go all the time. The weather was so rainy almost the whole time we were in Missouri. It finally stopped raining the last night so we took Karlee to the park. She loved it.
