A visit to meet baby Shelby

My brother and his wife just had their first baby and they blessed her on August 15. We were able to go down to Phoenix to be a part of it. She is so cute and the best baby! She sleeps ALL the time! I think somethings wrong with her......hahah, because Avery never slept all day like she does! Its so cute. Anyway, we were able to spend a lot of time together as a family and had a really good trip and was able to visit with our friends for a night out too! I love my family!!


Avery was invited to attend a birthday party our neighbors had for their 2 kids. They went all out, with a pool, slip n slides, water balloons, hot dogs, and cake! Avery loved to be around all the kids and try to participate in the big kid activites! It was a good time!

finishing! (I can't get this pic to come last!)

after the swim, getting ready for the ride

This morning I did my first triathlon! It was a sprint tri so it was a 1/6 mile swim, 13 miles bike, 3 mile run. I was all lined up ready for the first leg which is the swim at 5:45am. Surprisingly the swim was easy!! In practice I would take a couple breathing breaks at the wall, but not today! I swam the whole way. Then ran to the transition area to get ready for the bike, I put my shirt, shoes, ipod, and watch on and took off for the 13 mile ride. It was a very hilly ride and I thought it was so hard! I thought, if there is one more hill I'm gonna walk it! But I managed to push through and made it back to begin the run. My legs were soooo tired by now but I slowly adjusted to the running and did well! I have no idea what I placed or what my time was, it was just fun to try a new challenge rather than just running all the time. I think this will be something I will continue to try to get better at!! Go Triathloners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
