Utah & Bikes

We have had a great summer so far! Most recently Ben and I headed to Utah for the little red riding hood bike race. I was missing family and friends like no other. Needless to say I LOVED OUR TRIP! 

Calli (Bright yellow jacket) is pretty much a rockstar! She is about 3 months pregnant, and rode 50 miles with us!

I was lucky enough to ride a few miles with my awesome sister in law Michelle(great name right?).

Calli and Bens cousin Erin were so much fun to chat and laugh with through the ride!

Sea of bikes at lunch.

Finishing strong. 100 miles.....Check!

Love. Peace. Ride

Andy is my sisters cute little boy! He pretty much thought fighting bubbles was the best thing in the world. I have to agree!

This is what war looks like.

Dallin, Charles, and Andy ready for church.

Cute family!

 After my century bike ride Ben thought it would be fun to also do one. Lucky him there was one in Walla Walla this past weekend. Not as many riders as little red, but still a good turn out!

Gu on the bike, and ready to ride!

Most definitively the best looking rider there!

I met Ben around mile 70 to refill his water and powerade. Ben wanted me to point out that NO he doesn't NOT have love handles! Those are actually bananas in his back pocket. He ate about 7 bananas throughout the ride.....yummy..... potassium!

Finishing like a champion. Shirt unzipped and all :)

Nothing says love like french onion soup! Tonight when I got home from Yoga Ben had dinner ready! He doesn't cook too often, but when he does watch out! Yummy! He even used Walla Walla sweet onions that we picked up at the farmers market! Happy Anniversary to my little chef!

The Zoo

This past week Ben and I were asked to house sit for a family in another ward. It was a zoo! They had 3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 guinea pigs, 2 birds and one bunny! Here are some of the cute animals that we took care of. Take note of Reggie the chihuahua in the second picture. This is him doing "prairie dog"! I love it! He looks like an over sized rodent!

So here is Swaner life as of late! Yesterday. St Patty day. We went over to a friends house and had a little party. I made cute little water bottles and green cookies! Megan. the over achiever. Made meat pies and cute rainbow treats. Jo another girlfriend made a yummy salad! We had a lot of fun talking and enjoying the food!
