Olympic Distance Triathlon

In April, I competed in my first Olympic Distance Triathlon.  I trained really hard and long and am thankful to Dave for helping me along the way.   I was really happy with my times at the end and I ended up in 3rd place in my age group.  And yes, there were more than 3 people in my age group.  : )
Even though I placed, the best part of the day was having Dave, Alex, and Aubrey there to cheer me on.   I know they were bored at times, but when I came by they cheered me on.  : )


I am now registered for a half ironman triathlon.  Here I go!


Mountain Climbing

Back in April, during the kid's spring break from school, we took a hike up on Stone Mountain.  The kids were troopers.   We took a long climb up one side of the hill and then took the hundreds and hundreds of steps back down the other side.   Originally it was just supposed to be just Dave and the kids and at the last minute, I took the day off and went with them.  I am so glad I did.  It was a great way to spend the day as a family.



Daddy Daughter Dance

Back in March, Aubrey went to a Girl Scout Dance with her Dad.  She had such a great time and wants to go back again next year.   Here are some pictures before the dance.

So that left Alex and I at home.  I asked him what he wanted to do thinking he might like Chuck-e-Cheese, going to a restaurant, or some other fun thing.   Who would have thought that all he wanted to do was go and pick up Chinese and bring it back home.   We then had fun playing games together.   

All of us created great memories.
(Although a few months later, I asked Alex if he remembered this and he said..."Did you really say we could go to Chuck-e-Cheese?" )

Easter Sunday

On Easter morning, the kids were happy to see what was in their baskets.  We were glad that Jamison was able to come and spend the day with us.  
In the afternoon, we went over to Nanny's (Dave's Mom) house to celebrate with her. Here is a picture of Nanny and a few of her Grandkids.

Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

Here are some pictures from our neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt.   Fun was had by all.

This is the sight at our front door when you have a visit from someone with a broken left foot (Kendra), someone with a broken right foot (Andrea), and a three year old (Olivia).  Just made me laugh every time I saw it, so I had to take a picture.

New stuff from our Grandmas

Here are the girls with their dresses made by Grammie and their bunny ears from Nanny.
We added Alex in for this picture.
