*we have visitors from blackfoot staying with us for the month! cam's sister katie and her husband scott are in the hizzzouse. scott is in PA school at isu and cam hooked him up with a rotation at st. joe's with him. it is a full house with 2 extra cousins...we are having a fun time showing the kesler krew around denver. one of my favorite spots is redrocks - it is an outdoor amphithreater where alot of big name peeps do concerts...also a great place for working out...i work out with this groups called redrocks fitness, it is awesome, katie luved it and then the next day hated me.
*LUCY turned two at the end of sept. i just luv this kid. she has defiantly given me a run for my money but has come into her own with a comical little personality, independent nature, and the need to keep up with everyone around her...ex. when we bought bunkbeds for the girls, lucy was naturally put on the bottom bunk, which didn't last long because she climbed to the top bunk every night without the ladder...she now officialy owns the top bunk! lucism's as i call them..."mommy you funny" "go vannah go (when watching savannah at swim lessons)" "daddy you workin" "i want my milky" "who you talking to (when i'm on the phone)" "i going too" "where'd annie go (her favorite line from the movie annie)"...she also has a tendency to add "Y" to almost everything (churchy, beddy, milky, shoesy)...lucy is also known to walk around the house with a little pad of paper and a pen, writing with her left hand...like she is taking notes on all of us. we luv you lu.
*we also had an awesome visit from cam's parents at the beginning of sept. they came into town for 5 days to watch the kidos while we could make a little get-a-way...it was legit! we went up to frisco...biked around lake dillion, shopped at the outlets, went to the hot springs in Breckenridge, drove through rocky mtn national park, enjoyed dinner in downtown denver, and just talked alot...it was so fun to be together! we thought, hey we should do this more...when we got back marva lu and kelly said they had a great visit and told us, hey we should do this more...we gladly accept, come back soon! they also worked on a few house projects while we were gone, cleaned up some of our front landscaping and kelly whipped out this built-in bookshelf for us...it was so amazing! we got home right as he was finishing the final touches! the girls luved having them! thanks again grandma lu and grandpa!
*got to spend a fun afternoon with my friend Pam from AZ, she was in town visiting. pam, as vanny calls her, is "my nurse pam"...she helped deliver vanny and was my mentor out of nursing school when i started in L&D. she is such an amazing nurse, mother extraordinaire, and friend. i reall luv this lady!
*so anyway, that's my story and i'm sticking to it (luv that song, don't you?!?!)

blast from the past...my college roommate sandy! cam ran a clinic down in pueblo last weekend and we decided to make it a little trip. i hadn't seen sandy for about 6 years, so it was so fun to catch up with her in her home town! we lived together my sophomore year and played on the hoop team together.
sandy & her sweet little emily...blonde and blue eyed, can you believe it!
we went out to dinner at texas roadhouse and then everyone came over to the hotel for a little late night dip in the pool...lucy is crazy, she makes me laugh!
i spent the day with sandy over at her house on her land (some hundreds of acres!). her husband runs a chile farm...it was pretty cool to see. they built their house right on the Arkansas river. sandy made us homemade green chile, took us on a tour of the property on her ranger, & talked about the good ol' days at mesa! luved seeing you sandy, you are a great mom! (and awesome science teacher & coach...busy momma!)

i ran the hobblecreek half marathon in springville with em while i was in town. things were looking good...beautiful day, nice course, looking good on our pace and then the "hobble" of the race hit me like a ton of bricks. i had been having some problems with numbness in my feet and about mile 10 they went completly numb and shot pains up my shins. i literally wanted to find a ride to the finish but ended up hobbling to the finish line (with actually a decent time, ha!). yeah i am all smiles in the pics but i couldn't walk for 2 hours after the race, no jokes peeps. looks like i will be taking a little time off to recoup. em dominated as usual!
