Colorado, Clark's 40th Birthday, Halloween and another triathlon!

I keep thinking I will do better and post more often, but life just gets so crazy sometimes!

We were able to get away for a few days and go back to Colorado. It was a great get away and we can't wait to do it again. We got to see a lot of things we don't normally take the time to see. We drove over to Telluride and rode the gondolas up the mountain, 3 of us had fun, 1 of us kept asking what the point of this was..... (his names starts with C and ends with aleb).

Here is Clark with that certain someone just as we started up the mountain:

And here are me and Aryn:

We stayed a couple of nights in Ouray and found out it has tons of waterfalls that are fairly easy to hike to. Clark and I had a great time hiking around, and eventually Caleb got out of the car once in awhile to check things out, Aryn, however, preferred her Ipod and the car......

I guess we can always photo shop the kids in later :)

As some of you may know, Clark is lucky enough to have been born on Halloween. And this year was THE BIG ONE for him. He turned 40, although he will be the first to tell you he still gets ID'd when buying beer. I think he looks great for an old dude :)

The girls at work and I always have a good time making sure EVERYONE in the office knows it's his birthday:

This year since it was THE BIG ONE, the kids and I decided to throw him a surprise birthday party. It was so much fun planning it, and with the help of Facebook, we were able to track down some old friends he hadn't seen in years. We had a great turnout, and he was really surprised! I really appreciate everyone who helped plan the party, and helped get him out of the house so we could get it ready. We hope every one had as much fun as we did.
This is Clark, Chris, and Greg. They were high school buddies. I'm sure there are teachers and staff at Springville high who would break down in tears if they saw these 3 together again.....

Hopefully it won't be another 10 to 15 years before we get together with old friends again!

Halloween was a good time too, here is Caleb dressed up as Jim from the Office dressed up as Facebook.

This is where the picture of Aryn dressed up as Madonna would be if they hadn't all been deleted off my camera some how..... I'm hoping I will get her to dress up again, so I can get some pictures. It was a great costume!

We had a fun Halloween party at work on Friday, this is some of us who dressed up in our "action" photo:

Lastly, today I completed my 3rd triathlon! Sadly it was the last one of the season, and now I am back in marathon training getting ready for the Salt Lake Marathon next April.
Here are me and Tatum after the race:
