Her birthday weekend ended on a high note. We had the family over for dinner, dessert and presents.
I think Brooke blew out candles on four separate occasions this last week:)
For dinner I made chicken rolls!
12-16 crescent rolls
Cooked chicken—> 2 large chicken breasts shredded
1/3 large onion-chopped
6 oz. cream cheese
3 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 garlic clove, chopped
Salt and pepper
Fill rolls, put some melted butter on top and then roll in crushed croutons. Bake at 350 until brown.
We had some salad, fruit and appetizers to go with the bomb rolls.
I always feel bad eating really delicious food in front of babies that aren’t old enough for food yet.
Little guy, someday you too will get to eat all of the good stuff.
PS MY SISTER RAN PAIN FREE LAST WEEK. Back surgery for the win.
We did the present thing and this was her first year that she didn’t need my help opening them.
And she ate more sprinkles than she ever has in her life.
We also had a little ice cream sundae bar because it just felt like the right thing to do.
Getting wild and crazy.
Her piñata birthday tradition. I hope she still likes doing this when she is 17 because we will still be doing this.
No filter—> Utah summer nights are kind of the best.

51.8 miles for the week. I haven’t had a 50 mile week in quite some time so it is nice to be climbing back up in mileage again.
I’ve got tough runs Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week! These ones are going to hurt.
How was your running last week? Best run? Hardest run?
Parents reading—> how old are your kiddos?
Have any birthday traditions?
Current favorite show? We are looking for something new to watch at night!
