Swim, Bike, Run

John participated in his second Sprint Triathalon last weekend. Just like last year, this time was also decided on last minute. It was a laid back event in Plummer, ID with only about 30 competitors.  John shaved about 14 minutes off his time from last year, finishing in 1 hr. 10 minutes.  This time, the swim took place in the pool instead of the lake. John said he preferred the lake because the water in this pool was SO warm it made it hard to breathe. He completed his .5 mile swim in about just over 8 minutes.

 There he goes transitioning to the 12 mile bike ride.

 He didn't have to peel off a wetsuit this year.

 And here he is transitioning to the 5K run.

 John's favorite part about this race was that he could compete with his big sister Melanie! She also had a great time of 1 hr. 20 min!! WOOT! She was the second woman out of the water and the first back at the bike!

Amusement Park fun!

When my friend Kim asked if Kelsi and I would like to go with her to Silverwood theme park, I was a little hesitant at first. A) I was 9 months pregnant B) I wasn't sure how Kelsi would do at the park since her only trip to Disneyland was a flop and her trip to Knotts Berry Farm was only a little bit better. BUT it was free, Kelsi would get to hang with her friends and maybe I could get some contractions going by walking around all day.

 THANK GOODNESS for Kim. She started the day by going on the kiddie rides with Kelsi who did NOT want to go on ANYTHING. But after she tried everything once, she was in heaven and wanted to go again and again! (Fortunately for Kim, she could go solo).
 There was no one at the park, so we never had to wait in line and the kids could ride the rides over and over again without getting off.
 The day went by so fast. I didn't go into labor, but I still had a good time. I even "snuck" my prego self onto the Log Ride.
 It was a really warm day, so we took advantage of the water park. Here is a pic of my mean little Kelsi spraying some poor little kid. She can dish it out, but she can't take it!  She was fearless in the wave pool, which made me very nervous, but I was so glad that she was having fun. Next year we are buying a gold pass for our family for sure! THANKS Kim!

Fire Station

Kelsi's last field trip of the year was to one of the local fire stations. I think this was her favorite field trip of the year! The kids were SO interested in everything the firefighters had to say.

They loved watching him get into his fire fighting gear.

 They all took turns getting into the truck too!

 I thought Kelsi would freak out when the fireman put on his mask and began to talk like darth vader, but she thought it was really funny!

She still asks if we can go back and visit!

Baby June's Shower

My friends threw me a wonderful baby shower for June. The food was amazing!! 4 different kinds of amazing salads, the best bruchetta recipe you will ever try and curry chicken sandwiches.

My friend Shawnte made this amazing cake.  She is so talented and it was delicious!
 There was such a nice turnout. This baby will be the best dressed little girl since Kelsi Lynn! A big shout out to my friend Kim for hosting the party. I am so blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.
