I do not know how these women keep up on their blogging, I am WAY behind, so I'm adding Dayne's Birthday, my 1/2 marathon, other runs, Wess' sister being sealed to the family, bear lake. Too much fun, but not enough time to add everything when it happens.
I ran my first 1/2 marathon in June of this year. It all began with Lynie Phipps asking me, "hey would you like to run the Mikelson trail marathon this year? I'll pay your way for you birthday present. And Any of you who know me, know that I am cheap, so I thought someone will pay my way, why not. I'm not even thinking that, yeah, I just signed up for a 1/2 marathon. But it was an awesome experience. I will do it again.
This year for our annual snowmobile trip we decided to stay at Island Park in a cabin. Last year we went to West yellowstone but the snow wasn't that great so this year the snow rocked. It was a blast and staying in a cabin was a lot better than a hotel. The powder was fun and the boys played all day. Devin also rode Wess' little brother's sled perfectly. The boys are obcessed with sleds like their dad. We had a great time and look forward to it every year.
side note: love the snow, but now that it's april can't wait for summer
I must say, I am getting a little sick and tried of living in different states then my husband who has been working in Billings MT for 6 going on 7 months. (it's only a 1 1/2 hours from sheridan). We miss him and the weekends are tooooooo short. I wish that the housing market wasn't CRAPPY, but I have to complain. I am really trying hard not too, be postive so that a change can happen, but I'm frustrated. It would just be easier if he could come back home.
Conclusion, love and miss him lots
I'm a little behind, Whoops. We got back from Island Park, ID for a fabulous snow filled snowmobile trip and then I spent some time in Poky with the family. So Here are some pictures of Christmas and then I will post our snowmobile trip- AWESOME
Not sure what I want this year, I guess our family to be together
Santa came to visit the Doke home, (Grandma and Grandpa doke) on Sunday, Miss Claus came too, it was a blast. The adults even got to sit on his knee to. Devin and Dayne had so much fun, Devin has been consistant on what he wants from Santa, a motorcycle and a race car track. And Dayne is in love with Trains. Afterwards we watched the annual Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase. That movie never gets old
So the holiday's are fast approaching and I'm missin' my fam.
So it's begun, I started a blog.
I don't really like blogs, but I want my family to see more pictures of my boys and what our Wyoming life, (being a Doke is like. ) I grew up watching your children get big, but I don't live close enough for you to watch my boys grow up. So I have done the blog for my Brother's and sister, (also in-laws) who are the best. but mostly for mom and dad. I love and miss you guys lots.
