Jacob's New Glasses

Jacob has been seeing an ophthalmologist for about a year. He officially has monofixation of the right eye (just google it; it's too simple yet long to explain). He also is far-sighted with bilateral astigmatisms. In short, he got some sweet glasses. You'd think that since everything for kids is cheaper, i.e. haircuts, kids meals, movie tickets, etc., that the glasses would be cheaper. Not so. I paid $350 for the glasses, and that was AFTER a 30% discount. Oh well, he does look rather smashing!

Ben and Sarah

The other night, Ben got down on the floor with Sarah. He talked "baby talk" to her. It was so cute. I love this little guy.

Here we are. In all our glory. I was runner #8 in the Wasatch Back relay, and I lived to blog about it. I was absolutely exhausted. I only had 30 minutes of sleep and ran 17 miles. But I guess I'm used to sleep deprivation from working the night shift. I just want to say to all the Zenas: I love you all and thank you for one of the most exhausting and exhilarating moments of my life. You are the best!

Get Ready, Get Set . . .

I am way behind in publishing the pictures of the MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE (aside from childbirth). Yes, I ran the Ragnar Wasatch Back. I loved it. Here are some pictures of the Zena Road Warriors getting ready for the big event.

Poor Baby Brother

This picture was taken during dinner the other night. I think my baby Ben had a long day. He couldn't even stay awake to eat, which is RARE for him.

Namaste Ben

Tonight Jenny decided to do some yoga to see if her back would feel any better. Before we knew it, Ben had stripped to his yoga "fundoshi" (traditional Japanese men's underwear)and rolled out his yoga mat to join Jenny.

Jake just tore upstairs to take part of the fun too. We have more fun with those two angels than any parents should be allowed to have. Love them!

Jacob's School Bus

Now I understand why Jacob is so excited about riding the school bus . . .

Zena Road Warriors

We had our team pictures taken today. Michelle's husband was our official team photographer. I took Marty and Jacob along for the ride. Marty had my camera so I could get some "instant" pictures. What a team. Look out Wasatch Back!

I've decided I look quite constipated in some of the following pictures. I had to sit in the front row on a rock and show off my white legs. How embarrassing. Way too self-conscious.

Jacob loved climbing the rocks. He was such a happy and good sport. I just love this guy.

Kindergarten Graduation

Jacob is all done with Kindergarten. And according to "The Incredibles," we do celebrate mediocrity. I am so looking forward to first grade. How wonderful will it be to have a kid go to school ALL DAY LONG?!!! Here are some pictures of the wonderful day.

And of course we have to have a picture of Ben. He wouldn't look at or smile for the camera. That little stinker!

First Kiss?

What? Jacob told me last night he had his first kiss. Aren't you too young? What is happening? He told me Sophie C. kissed him on the playground at school. I told him it would be much cooler if he would wait next time until he's sixteen years old and can actually take her out on a date.

Marty gave him a high-5 and congratulated him. Oh well. I guess it could be worse. And he did pick a cute little girl.

Memorial Day

We had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I (Jenny) was scheduled to work, but fortunately/unfortunately got called off Sunday and Monday. I was happy to spend well-rested days with the family, but I will miss having a good paycheck.

We took the boys up to Farmington Cemetary to see Grandma Asay. We took some pictures of the boys. We had a picnic and let the boys play at the park.

Marty and I planted our annual flowers. I planted the vegetable garden. We also had enough time to put out new mulch and plant six new trees. I also dug up some bushes that I've always hated -- mugo pines. HATE them!!! Our yard looks quite nice now. Oh, and get this: Marty actually relented and let me get a peach tree. It's just a dwarf tree that's only supposed to grow 4-5 feet. We'll see what happens.
