Tri #5!

So, April 10th Kris did his 5th triathlon and also his first one of the year. It was so fun to go and enjoy one of his races kid free with no worries! Don't get me wrong I love my kids but it is some times nice to get away for a weekend :) Thanks to everyone who helped out with the kids that weekend it was sure nice! Anyway, the race was at Lake Las Vegas and it was such a great atmosphere to be around...everyone was there to do the exact same thing...TRIATHLONS and TRAIL RUNS! It was so fun to watch Kris and the Pros compete! The race started with a 1.5k swim followed by a 30k bike and finished with a 10k run! Kris did so good, he finished in 3:21! He is always improving and I'm excited to watch him grow throughout the season! Good job Krissy Poo keep up the hard work ;)

This is after the swim getting ready to bike...

Transition from bike to run..

Here he is getting to go run which was a 10k...

Finishing up the LONG race! So proud of Kris...he trains so hard while juggling work and us...his family! I love tagging along to watch him race. It's so fun!

These pictures are of 2 of the Pros that raced. There were many Pros that day but I didn't want to post about them too much. This is Conrad Stoltz who actually finished 2nd with a time of 2:14 and the other is Shonny Vanlandingham who also got 2nd in Womens with a time of 2:35...

As for me...I ran the 10k trail race the day before and so sorry, no pictures of me! Haha! I did it in 1:04 and let me tell ya that run was B-R-U-T-A-L! It was the same trail that Kris ran in his race. It was fun though!

Camden is 5!!!

Cam turned 5????...REALLY??? Dang this kid is growing up too fast! I absolutely LOVE this sweet boy! He is so big and so smart and so kind to others! He is in preschool and his teacher says that he is beyond ready for kindergarten and that he is kind to all his classmates! I am so thankful that he is kind to others and is such a helper, it makes me so proud! Anyway, back to the party :) He loved his How to Train Your Dragon cake that Nikki and I made...he really didn't care about anything but getting a dragon cake and a dragon blanket that he asked Nikki to make :) He loved that so many of his cousins came to his party and that he got to take his cake to school to share with his class. Oh, Happy Days for this little boy! He had the best birthday and I'm thankful that there was such a good turn out and that we were able to throw him a big party for his big 5!

We just want to tell Cam again that we love him so much and that we are so thankful that he is part of our family! I'm thankful for his kind heart and his sweet personality! You are getting so big and so smart and I love watching you grow everyday! I love that you love school and that you love all your family and that you take good care of Faith...even when she is hard to handle :) We love you so much and hope that you will always be the loving boy that you are now and that you will always "want" to be good ;) Again we love, LoVe, LOVE you and Happy 5th big boy! Love, Mom, Dad & Faith

Faith & Gymnastics

Faith had her first gymnastics recital and she thought it was the greatest thing EVER! She definitly knows how to put on a show and being on the stage she thought she was a true star! (Of course she really was) It was the cutest thing to see all these little girls attempt cartwheels and somersaults! She loved every minute of it and thought she was so big! The only sad thing is she asks to go to "nastics" tomorrow...everyday! We will be looking forward to the next season!

Showing some of her moves...

So I guess now would be a good time to explain my "toothless" little girl :( The weekend before Faith's recital we were in Safford at Aunt Nikki's house and Faith decided it would be a good idea to jump on an Airmattress! got the best of her because she hit her mouth on a dresser that was near by. Super scary! Of course it was a Saturday night so we had to wait til Monday to see a dentist and of course we had to go all the way to Flagstaff to have not 1 but 2 of her cute little teeth pulled! I'm not going into detail about that but it was an experience that I will never forget! I am happy to say that this experience didn't slow Miss Faith down at all...well lets say I have mixed feelings about her not slowing down but I love her cute little personality and I would NEVER want that to slow down!!! I fear that this is only the begining for her "accidents" and I'm thankful that I have a pretty mellow son for the most part because I don't think I could handle 2 accident prone kids!
