We left Wednesday evening and stopped in St. George for the night at Grandma and Grandpa Marsh's house. We love stopping there for the opportunity to visit with them and break up the drive. Grandpa spoiled us the next morning with blueberry waffles and some yummy fruit. We arrived in AZ late afternoon Thursday, after stopping at Last Chance on our way in; we scored again, as we always do :)
The next morning our AZ friends had a little baby brunch for me and the girls and it was perfect. It was a small group, simple, and absolutely darling. I'm so bugged I didn't get a picture of all of us together, or any of us really. The brunch was super yummy and the décor was adorable. My friend, Ciara is a crafty little bugger and hosted the darling event. We were spoiled with a lot of darling clothes for baby boy and we are so excited to use all of them!
Brad went golfing that afternoon with his dad and uncle so I hung out at home, relaxed, soaked up the sun and enjoyed doing nothing while I waited for everyone else to get home. Then we enjoyed a night a home with a yummy home cooked meal and a movie, making sure we got to bed early enough for Brad to get enough sleep for the race.
The next morning was Brad's race. His buddy, Austin came and picked him up at like 4:00 a.m. The rest of us woke up in time to cheer for him on the sideline, down the street from home. After we saw him pass, we headed out to watch him cross the finish line. I'm proud to have a hubby that is determined and disciplined enough to accomplish goals like running 13.1 miles. Maybe it will rub off on me someday?..

We tried to soak up every minute we had with the family - it seems like we are never able to stay longer than a few days. We were so bummed to have to leave Sunday morning and cannot wait for another chance to go down and visit - next time we head down we will have a little guy joining us! Yahoo!!!
