Meet the Anderson's

Well, I have finally made it into the blogging world, yeah!  I want to start by introducing you to my sweet little family.  I have been married to Jake for 13 years, woah how did that happen?  We have 2 kids, McKenna is 10 and Kobe is 7.
We are all a little nutty!
Here is a normal picute of us, I just had to post that silly one cause I LOVE McKenna's face!

We just spent the weekend in St. George, we were there to celebrate my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary!  It had been a good 7 years or so since I had seen some of my family, so it was nice to get to visit with everyone.
These are just some of my cousins along with Grandma and Grandpa

Kobe kept popping up in all my pictures.

There he is with Papa Ray and Granny Maurine :)
I don't know where he comes up with these sneaky ideas...

On the drive down I realized that I resemble E.T. quite a bit
And THAT doesn't help!
E.T. phone home :)

Back to the Anderson's.  Kobe and McKenna are both competitive gymnasts and spend a good chunk of their lifes at gymnastics.  I also spend a good chunk of my life at the gymnasium, but not doing fancy tricks...well, sometimes I do ;)
I have conviced Jake to do the Ragnar Relay with me and some of our friends in June.  And to both of our surpise he is actually starting to enjoy the whole running thing.  He has always made fun of me for torturing myself but I guess the endorphins got the best of him.
Kobe is the child who thinks I am hilarious and laughs at all of my "jokes" and Kenna is the one who is embarrassed by her mother, I do not know why...
You may ask why on earth we are wearing the same suit...I had the same question
Don't worry we didn't mean to show up at the pool in the same suit it just happened.  Seems how we were the only ones at the pool in good ol' Hurricane, UT we didn't really care.  But rest assured it will not happen again!!

Sorry that my very first post is complete randomness.  I promise it won't happen again.  Also, please ignore any grammar or spelling errors, I never said I was an English major just a personal trainer and sometimes I need to flex a little harder to concentrate, at least that's what my friend Suzee tells me quite often.  I promise this is a fitness blog so if you are disappointed that you didn't get any inspiring words of wisdom about health and fitness then please stay tuned.  It will come!  Actually, here is what I did for my workout for today:

I started out with a nice little shoulder and abs workout for 50 minutes.  I then headed into the cardio cinema room and ran for 2 miles for a warm-up.  Then did 10 quarter mile repeat sprints, each sprint followed by a quarter mile at 8 mph.  After my 5 miles of intervals I did another 2 miles, for a total of 9 miles.  Last but not least I headed into a killer abs class with Deb, she is AMAZING and makes us hold planks for about 45 minutes ;) I am so sad because Gold's is doing away with all classes at the Provo location.  So this was my last abs class, oh how my abs will miss the torture :(

Now I want to learn a little bit about you

Tell me about your weekend, did you do anything fabulous or dress the same as your buddy ;)

Do you resemble an alien or any kind of life form?
