Hiking the Canyons


The kids really like to go Geocaching, so we try to incorporate a nice hike along with finding the cache. We went up Big Cottonwood Canyon and hiked to a waterfall finding 3 caches on the way. It was a little dirty, but really fun. Finding the geocaches makes the kids want to go on more hikes . It is like a huge treasure hunt.

Horseback Riding



Madelyn has taken up horseback riding. She really enjoys it. The place where she takes it has an indoor arena and that is where she rides. The name of the horse that she rides is "Ginger." She really thinks that is neat, since our dog that died name was Ginger. I tried to warn Martin about getting her involved in horses, he could have opened the door to a really expensive hobby.

Rocking and Racing

Miller Motorsports Park is so much fun for the entire family. When the kids race their go-karts, we take the motorhome out and stay the night. There are about 5 other families that do the same thing. So when night falls and the kids can't be on the track any more, the real fun begins. The kids hook up the XBox to the outside TV and play RockBand. They have so much fun together. All the kids come over and take turns rocking out. Being at the race track means spending time with our extended family. All of us really enjoy the fun we have out there.

Racing




Our lives have been filled with lots of racing this year. I have had some great luck on the track, Martin can't say the same. But what this year of racing has brought us is lots of media coverage. I have been featured in 3 magazines, 2 newspapers, a German website and interviewed for television. Being the only female racing in the Porsche series and having all podium finishes, brings lots of press. I have really enjoyed being in the spot light this year. It probably won't last long, so I'll live it up while I can.

Karting


Everyone in our family is into racing. It is in the family blood. The only one that doesn't race is McKenzie and she can't wait to get her chance in a kart. Madison hasn't been able to race much this summer, but the races he did do he did well in. This is Madison flying around the track.
