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!!

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
