TRI, TRI, TRI again

FINAL TIME 1:36:10

I did my first sprint distance triathlon. A few things to remember for next time.

1. If your googles break before you get in the water its a bad thing.
2. Learn how to swim.
3. Train more...Here and there training doesn't work as well..

(Juliann was there to cheer me on at the finish..This girl is a rock!)

I was very happy that I finished at least that was my goal. I was the last person in the pool and the last person out but that's okay I was happy with my time. I have somethings to work on it can only get better, much better.

I wish I had a picture but I don't. I sucker my mom into all these events with me I'm to big of a chicken to do it by myself. She is absolutely amazing. I am so lucky to have such a great person to look up to and teach me new things everyday.

(Suzanne has proved to me you can do anything you put your mind to she is 53 and we did our first novice and sprint together)


How luck am I? I was able to go to dinner with two of my favorite girls before the 8:15 private screening of Eclipse. Much better than New moon at midnight at the District with a 10 day old baby....We had just finished dinner and thought we needed some treats for the show...haha!

Kennadee's First Tennis Lesson

Kennadee's friend invited her to go to her tennis lesson. She loved it and can't wait to go back.

Super Saturday

Daddy took the boys to Lowes and made a monster truck. Ryker hasn't put that thing down.

Wyatt's Birthday Party

Wyatt had a great party. The kids had so much fun I didn't even get a picture of keenadee they were having so much fun.

That smile kills me! Bronson has some of the funniest smiles this is just one of his many. He played in the bottom of the slide for quite a while.

Have you cake and eat it too.....


My mom made this darling cake for the boys watching the USA game last week. She just finished it and Ryker wanted to make sure it tasted good. It was fantastic!

How could you ever get mad at a cute face like this?

Utah Valley 5K

Team bandanna's okay we were tryig to keep our ears warm it was cold.

I am working on improving my 5k least that's what I like to call it. I really enjoyed the first novice triathlon I did so I signed up for a sprint one in two weeks. So I signed up for the Utah Valley 5k because I knew Chelsea and Eni and baby Matini were signed up.

Then I found out that (L-R)Chantelle, Tiffany, Ryan and baby paige were doing it also. I loved that we all got to meet up for a second at the starting line.

Everyone did great and finished! I was hoping to beet my last 5k time which was a few weeks ago of 28:40 and I did coming in at 27:51.
Even though it was raining hard on my way down the weather was great a little cold with some puddles but it was perfect. I can't wait to do my next triathlon in 2 weeks.

Red Fish Lake

Nick's mom planned for all of us to get together the first weekend of June to camp....Camping with kids equals cabins. After we survived the 6 hour drive in Nick's truck we made it. The kids were great. I thought it would be rough not having the TV for them to watch but they did great. Bronson especially was fantastic. It was beautiful , we stayed right on the river in cute little studio cabins. I was able to run a few days, five miles passes by when you have scenery as beautiful as it was. Bronson was a great kettle bell.

The boys got up at 5am everyday and went fishing the last day they came home with this little thing. 24 pounds and 40 inches long!! It took Eni 45 min. to real this sucker in and all three of them to get it on the boat.

We found a stock pond not to far from our cabin and so the kids could fish all day long. They caught until they were tired.

The kids loved the animals everywhere. There was a heard of 20+ elk that sat on the hill behind where we stayed.
We even saw a baby black bear. He was so cute but I'm glad there was a river between us because mom couldn't have been to far. Its amazing at the beauty in Stanley. It was so nice to get away.

Nicks mom always had something planned for the kids. One of the crafts they loved was painting their own shirts. I was proud of my self I let the control freak in me go and let them do their own thing. They were so proud of the creations can't you tell. I do have to admit. When Ryker walked into the gym the other day wearing it I just about died. We have agreed its a great shirt to wear camping. So it will get good use in a few week. Until then they will look great in their closets.

Head: 51%
Weight: 18.6 71%
Length: 27.5 84%

My baby is getting so big it makes me sad but happy daily.

He is sitting like a pro, eating anything he can get his hands on, and always happy. When we took these pictures he would not keep his tongue in his mouth.
The whole time I was thinking you have got to be kidding me. Here I am paying to have pictures taken and not one smile all silly tongue.

Well two days later Mr. Bronson's bottom two teeth broke through. I am so glad I have these darling pictures of him and his tongue they turned out more than perfect.
This boy is to dang cute.
We all love him so much.

Memorial Weekend

As if we didn't just get back from Vegas last weekend we headed off to Emery this weekend. Bronson loved his first camping and four wheeling trip. It was so much fun riding, talking, running in sandy gravel, and riding bikes that are missing half of their gears....okay that part was not. Best all Ryker learning how to ride a two wheeler.

We loved picking as much asparagus as we could find. We also made ice cream in a bag the kids liked it I loved it! According to the hubby's for a lame idea it tasted okay.

If it wasn't for my amazing dad we would never be able to go do all these fun things. I don't think we can ever thank him enough.
