I just wanted to post some bithdays. First my mom's birthday was on Friday and I just wanted to wish her a happy birthday. I hope that she had a good one. Her and my dad went to Safford to little Dexen's birthday party which leads me to my other birthday:) Dex tured 2 and him and my mom share the same birthday. My mom says that she doesn't need a birthday any more because we need to have a party for Dex now, so yesterday when she and my dad got home Mandy and I made cake and had a little celebration for her. Sorry, Nik that we didn't get to come and celebrate Dex's birthday with you! Hope it turned out good! Hope both birthdays were good ones and just wanted to say we love you both!

A day in the sun...sort of :)

Cam asked if we would fill the pool up and since it was a nice day we did but as soon as it was filled the sun went behind a cloud and they were freezing. Anyway, here are some snaps of the day and yes Faith looks like a boy but she wouldn't quit throwing a fit long enough to put her suit on. So, enjoy!

Triathlon #2

So, Kris completed his 2nd Triathlon this morning. It was in Austin Texas this time and he said it was crazy hot! He said that he wasn't thrilled with his time but then he saw the results and he felt better. There were close to 200 contestants again and over all he finished 38th and also #7 in his age group! He had better results this time than last and I am so excited for him. He does train really hard for these cazy things and even though it can be frusterating some times :) I know this is what he likes to do and I try to be supportive as much as I can. I was disappointed that the kids and I didn't get to go this time but I know there will be more to come! Congratulations Kris we love you and are proud of you!
I also wanted to say congrats to Jeff too...he ran I think an 18 mile race the day before and finished 18th over all. Not sure how many contestants there were but that sounds pretty amazing to me anyway! :) Good job guys you are awsome!

So, Kris left for Austin for his triathlon today for a week and I am already going crazy! I can't help but think about how much our life has changed the past couple of years. I look back at our military life and how it was a good experience for us but at the same time, some of the hardest times of our life! Kris used to go out to sea weekly and looking back I don't know how we did it. Cam was only a baby but I could see how much it effected him as well. He missed his daddy and would be so happy when he would come home. Now, we have been so blessed to be living back home where we are close to family and we couldn't be happier. We have been blessed to be able to see each other every night and day and in a way I think we have been spoiled. I have gotten used to this routine so now that Kris has left us for 1 whole week, I am not sure what I am going to do with myself!
So, I just want to give props to those who are living the military life with a family. Even though it was not for us any more I do know what it is about and know that it can be a blessing and also a sacrifice. Thanks to all who are doing their part to help us stay a free country! I know we appreciate it!

This is a late post but here it is...we went to the races last weekend and my kids had a such a good time! I knew Cam would like it but I didn't think Faith would...boy was I wrong! She was wide eyed and clapping and cheering from the moment we got there! Cam thought the best part was..and I quote "Those so fast cars crashed and Mater had to go get them!" It was so cute! We never go and it was a good night to go because Richie won! Good job man! He was glad that we finally came and that the kids had a good time! I guess we will have to go at least one more time this year!
