The Calendar Says Columbus Day.....

....but it looks like Christmas! We woke up to several inches of snow Sunday morning. Okay, it is pretty, but seriously...mid-October is too early for snow in my opinion.

And in other news, Parker and I had fun running Saturday in the Cougar Run as part of the activities at BYU Homecoming. Go Cougars! It was a fun race. Parker's cross country coach told him not to run all out because they have a region meet this week. Parker had a nice, leisurely run and finished in a little over 22 minutes. I was huffing and puffing to make to the finish line and I finished......several minutes after Parker! The finish line was on the BYU track, and the runners got to run a lap around it. They even announced your name as you crossed the finish line. Made me feel so Olympic....:) And like any good runner should, we stopped at Krispy Kreme on our way home and bought a half dozen donuts. Parker downed three of them in no time. You can do that when you're 15...I controlled myself and just had one.


I don't have any pictures of our race, but here are some snow pictures from yesterday.
