The Cure-Leaders!

This actually happened a couple of weeks ago, but this is my cheerleaders (Hunter High Cheer), cheering at the Race for the Cure. It was a 5k run, walk held down at the Gateway. My cheerleaders were one of the squads asked to be "cure-leaders" during the race and cheer on the runners and walkers! They were so cute, with the cheers they came up with to help raise breast cancer awareness! They had a great time!
After the race they were part of a little program, where they did their cheers along with 4 other cheer teams, to the survivors, it was really neat and kind of emotional and inspirational to see the survivors and watch them all cheer together! My girls loved it!
This is all of them on the race course. I had to take a pic, cuz they were cheering so loud for me when I came around the course running, I told them I was going to start taking them to all my races!
Everyone, say hi to Colby!

Rachelle's Here!

Yeah! Rachelle and her cute family came to visit us in Utah! She lives in Vancouver, WA and we absolutely hate having her and her lil' ones so far away! They came down for a week and we were able to hang out with her, Ry Ry and cute lil' Maren, who is getting so big! This first pic is of Rachelle, with baby Maren and my other sister Erica, at our little adventure to Hogal Zoo!

This train ride was hilarious. Now I am not an avid Hogal Zoo attender, however I had not been on the train since about 6th grade and I really didn't even remember they had a train there! So you pay a dollar and you see about 4 animals, the playground, a fake little mining town, and a fake little cemetery, plus the parking lot! We'll I guess you do get to see the mining town 2x! The whole ride is about 30 sec. long, and I am pretty sure that Kalli and Ryan didn't even finish their half P&J sandwiches! Too funny! Although Ziek was loving everything about the train ride!The Zoo was a big hit and mostly hilarious, I love these lil' guys they crack me up! Especially Ry and Kalli in the wagon. These to are like little bear cubs together, however in the wagon they need their own space and please do not confuse the sippie cups!!!

This is Grandma with baby Maren, right before bath time! Although it is a little weird for me to call my Mama a Grandma yet cuz she is still just my Mom!

The are both so cute! And this is a really cute one of a very lil' baby Maren smile! Too fun! I miss these guys already! But we'll be seeing you soon, in July when we venture up to Vancouver for some quality Kunkel time!

Love you guys!

Welcome Lola!!!!

Meet the newest member of our family!!!


She is a (very white) yellow lab and is 7 weeks old, and such a doll!

In fact Bella is pretty sure that this is her new little doll, to play with! (Look at her face......protective much!!!)
They are sooo cute together, although I think Lola loves Bella a little more. She follows her everywhere and any chance she gets she cuddles right up with Bella!

They both really like to play with eachother, it's very intertaining for everyone involved, even watching!

This was her first bath, she didn't really care one way or the other about it! Not her favorite but she didn't complain!

Favorite toy of the moment! But it really wears her out after about 10 min. But after about a half hour nap she is ready for round 2!

This is really all she does right now, sleep and pee! But mostly Sleep!

Lola with Dad, and her "What's that?" face!

Yeah, we love Moab! This trip was awesome! We went down with my sister, Erica and her family(Stephen, Kalli, and Ziek) and lot's of thier friends! Kudos to Stephen, Erica's hubby, for finding us some sweet condo's to stay in while we were playing there! The weather was almost perfect and It was just georgous! Also a huge thanks to Greg for letting us take down a couple of his 4-wheelers, we had a blast! One of the best parts of the whole trip was that we got to bring our lil' girl down! She had such a great time and decided this was her favorite vacation ever! She loved to follow the bikes and 4-wheelers, but mostly she loved getting in the water! Check out that smile!

We went to Arches National Park and did a couple of small hikes! Colby and I watched Ziek(1 1/2) and Kali(2) while Erica and Stephen biked into and around the park! We had a lot of fun with the little kitties, they mostly wanted to play in the sand and there was plenty of it, especially at Sand Dune Arch, a favorite amongst all the kids in our party!
Just kickin' back on top of Sand Dune Arch!

Well, we did the practice loop at least, and it was really fun, next time we'll do the whole thing! I really only got brave towards the end, and then wanted to do it again, cuz I was getting the hang of things! Colb and Erica were amazing and so hard core throughout the whole trail! Colb and I took off one day to go do the Klondike Bluff trail! It was a lot of fun, even if we added an extra 45 min. to our little ride for Colby getting us off the trail by a couple 100 yards, that we had to climb back up hill, and occationally pick up our bikes and walk through cactus! But all in all it made for a good time! This is us at the top! It over looks into Arches and was beautiful and worth the climb! The real trail is a blast, as we went the right way on the way back!

Yes, I really did that all by myself! And funny enough we saw this t-shirt later on that evening in town, that I thought was very appropriate!However some of these last few pics. did come with a price! Check out my Badges of Honor!

You don't get scars like these from sitting around! Go ahead and either take that for good or bad !

some more fun pics!

>Colby and Stephen did Amasa Back!(You guys are so hard core!)

I love this pic! Zeik is such a lil' man now that he is walking all over!

Even Bella got to ride on the 4-wheelers!

Everyone at Gemini Bridges before we headed out!
