The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family. -Thomas Jefferson

Kaitlyn went to a Cheer clinic over at Bingham High School this week and last night got to cheer at the Varsity Football game!  It was ADORABLE.  I was a very proud mommy and Brian loved every second of seeing her in his school's blue and white!

Rivalry Relay

About a month ago I ran in a relay with some of my family.  It was sooo fun!  It was called the RIVALRY RELAY and it went from the University of Utah down to BYU.  64 total miles.  We had a 6 person team and each team member had 3 legs each.  It was a BEAUTIFUL run along the Wasatch Mountains.  We had such a blast.
Everyone on our team was or is an Oborn so our team name was

Here we are at 6:30am starting the race!

Meet our team!

Sister Trip!

My sisters, sister-in-law, and I took a quick weekend trip to St. George to relax and hang out.  (Colton did have to tag along with all the girls because he still goes where I go.) The only pics I have are by the pool because pretty much all we did was hang out by the pool!  It was a blast and a nice little getaway with the gals. 

 We had an all-out-girls-night while we were there.  We ate pizza and brownies, watched a little Matthew McConaughey, and painted our nails!

Harry Potter Finale

It was a bitter-sweet night last week for the premire of the final Harry Potter movie. I was so excited to finally see it, but also sad that it was going to be over. OF COURSE, my family and friends got all dressed up to go to the midnight showing.  So fun!

 Jake was sooooo scary!

 My sis-in-law Tamara is AWESOME and made all these fun, delicious treats!
 We definitely weren't the only ones at the theater dressed up (not even close) but we definitely drew attention to ourselves!

4th of July-Prologue

My 4th of July started early...try 5am early!  I went down to Provo to do the the Freedom Run with my sister and sister-in-law. 
Allyx and I rocked it out in the 5K.  My girls were very impressed with my "shiny medal" !!
 Tamara joined us at the finish line later because she is awesome and ran the 10K!  Woot Woot!  My goal next year is to join her.  :)

4th of July

For the 4th of July we met up with my cousins and had a big picnic at a park.  It was a GREAT way to celebrate the 4th, and we had a ton of fun!

Birthday Golf Trip

Last weekend we took a trip to St. George with our good friends Mike and Mindi.  Both Brian and Mike turned 30 in the last month so Mindi and I thought a weekend-o-golf would be a fun present for them! They played a total of 45 holes in 2 days!

We also swam in the pool to cool off from the RIDICULOUS heat!

We went to a really fun restaurant with fondue and our very own hot stones to cook our steaks on.  Very cool.
We took the babies but left the rest of the kiddos. 


 And what did Mindi and I do while all the golf was going on????. . .
Mostly sat in our sweats and read. It was amazing. :)

CMT Music Awards!

The first week in June Brian and I got a call on Monday letting us know we had two tickets to the CMT Music Awards in Nashville that Wednesday. Well OF COURSE we wanted them! So Tuesday we hopped on a plane and headed to Tennessee! It was so fun. Best show I’ve EVER seen! We had great seats and got to see so many amazing performances.

Here we are waiting for the show to begin…after walking around Nashville in the extreme heat and humidity…!

 Toby Keith opened the show with a new song, "Made in America"  it was INCREDIBLE!
