Back in the Saddle

Pioneer Day marked my first race in about 4 years! I can't believe it's been that long since I've actually done one. I'm so glad I did it. My sister, Michelle invited Aileen and I up to Davis County(I know, it's a long way) to do her very first race. It was for the Bountiful Handcart Celebration. Michelle and I were able to run the whole race together and it was such a fun time. This is us a few yards from the finish line. Aileen came in right behind us.
They even gave out little medals to all the finishers. The cut up logs into inch thick circles and branded the logo onto them. They were perfect for Pioneer Day.
We were happy to be done!
Here is my personal little ribbon. I placed 2nd in my division of a whopping 4 people! I'm still proud of my ribbon and handcart "trophy".

I can't wait for my next race....possibly on my birthday!

Extravaganza 2010

This last week has been an eventful one in the Lundberg Family. First and foremost, Michael finished the Bar Exam!!!!! (Celebrate good times, c'mon!) He also had a birthday on the 26th(the day before he took the exam) and he spent the entire day at the law school studying for the test. The exam was on the 27th and the 28th. My parents had their wedding anniversary on the 27th and Michelle had her birthday on the 28th. I knew this called for a celebration.
I invited the family over to have a party and to admire this beautiful Martha Stewart-esque cake, complete with spelling errors and all. Cake decorating is not my forte. We started the night off with a BBQ at our house. Nate cooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill. I was so busy getting everything ready for the meal that I never got a picture. But trust me, it was fun. We definately missed Angela, Kesse and their kids. After dinner, we walked over to the high school for what I think should be an annual exciting game of kickball. We played guys against girls. To make it fair to the guys, we had 4 adults and one 6 year old, while they had 5 adults. I'm sure you can only imagine the outcome of the game.

Megan had a ton of fun and was a little disappointed by the fact that while we were up to bat, she actually had to stand around. I'll admit it, I might have enjoyed that part.
Here is the guys team line up. L to R- Travis, Dad, Steve, Nate and Michael
And here are the real champs. If you know me well, my slogan is 'The winner is the one that has the most fun'. That was definately us. L to R- Megan, me, Michelle, Mom and Melissa.
The post game party consisted of softball using tennis balls that Nate and Steve collected from the tennis courts next to the baseball field. Megan was very excited when my dad helped hit some balls. It was cute. I thought this was a cool picture of Nate with the sky in the background Oh Steve, you're such a star.
Thanks to everyone for coming and for the great time!

Guatemala bound!

That's right, folks. Nate's brother, Caleb left for his mission. He entered the MTC on July 28 and is going to the Guatemala Quetzaltenango mission. Try that one for a tongue twister. It took me a while to figure it out.We were lucky enough to go to the MTC. Before he went inside, we were able to get some pictures. It's been a while since I've been to the MTC and things sure have changed. As most of you probably know, they no longer have the meeting where everyone watches the video. We literally dropped him off at the curb and said our goodbyes. It might be a good thing because it doesn't give anyone a chance to be sad. Before you know it, they're gone into a sea of missionaires who have that same deer in the headlights look. If they only knew what was ahaed of them!

We're very excited for Caleb and know he will be a great missionary. He has an amazing 2 years ahead of him.
