Another Bike Race

Today the entire family did a bike ride together! The National Ability Center is a place in Park City that helps disabled people be able to do everything an able person can do! My sister has grown up going there and we have made such a special relationship with them.

Every year they do the Summit Challenge, a bike race to raise money. You can do 100, 50, or 18 miles. This is the first year every person in our family has been able to do it! My cute dad rides a hand cycle with Allie to make it easier for her. They started about 2 hours before us and we were able to catch them at the end and cross the finish line together! It was a great morning spent as a family!

A Powell Trip, A Bike Race, An Anniversary

We were finally able to return to our favorite vacation spot! Our family headed to Lake Powell with our cute cousins a couple weeks ago! As always, it was perfect! Perfect water for skiing and tandem skiing, boat rides, exploring, surfing, tubing, and delicious food made the trip pretty great! Aside from a horrible cold that hit the night we got there I still managed to have a great time!

Saints to Sinners is a bike race that Daniel and I participated in last year and we were so excited to do it again! Creighton Rider is a dear family friend that was diagnosed with ALS about 5 years ago. The bike ride is from Salt Lake to Las Vegas in relay form and all the entry fees are donated to research for ALS. Last year we had 2 teams of 10. This year we had 5 teams of 10! It was an incredibly emotional event this year and made for an inspiring couple of days!

Daniel and I celebrated 1 year of dating, 1 month of engagement, and 4 months till marriage all in one week! We were so busy during the week we weren't able to officially celebrate. On Monday we decided to make a date night and celebrate! We ate dinner at The Dodo and then went to the drive-in and saw Despicable Me. It was a fun way to celebrate such fun milestones!
