Third time is a CHARM?

This weekend was the Shelton Triathlon. After the disappointment of St. Anthony's in April, I had decided to register for the Shelton Tri when I returned.

When the swim was cancelled in FL, I knew that I wanted to complete a full triathlon this summer. The Shelton course was hard. The swim was a loop in the river, I think that I heard that the temp was just under 70 for the morning.

I was 6th out of the water for the women, I felt good and was anxious to get on my bike. The bike course is really challenging - the first 4 miles is a 1000 foot elevation climb. I thought I held my own, and felt okay. Then mile 6 I got a flat. Seriously, could it not have gone my way once.

I fixed the flat - 20 minute delay. Finished the course in 3:10. I really wanted to break 3 hours, but that did not happen.

I came home a registered for the Hy-Vee in Iowa in two weeks. So one week of hard training and then I will rest again in hopes that the third one I can make it through.

When playing with water helmets optional

We came from riding bikes to playing on the back deck. After playing for a short time nicely. Aly decided we would play spalsh.Which resulted in this.....Brianna soaked and laughing..

Which resulted in the disrobing of clothes....At least we were wearing underwearWell, some of us just wore shoesAnd then we might just be wearing nothing at all

All in all we just had a lot of fun!

It was one of those days.....

One of those days when it isn't even 7 am and you know your should just stay in bed....

The weather was terrible and I did not get to get out and run.

Ryan got rear ended on the way to work.

The truck would not start AGAIN.

Brianna was mad I put her down for a nap, so she pooped in her diaper, then took it off. Apparently she knows how to show mommy. There was poop in her hair, all over her crib, in her shoes, on her get the idea.

So making lemonade out of lemons, Aly decided that she would teach Brianna to swim this afternoon. All was well until Brianna split her lip, apparently Aly was teaching her to dive in the tub. For the record she really was not diving into the tub, she did however lunge for the ball and hit her lip.

Off to bed in hopes that tomorrow is better.

Busy Weekend

We had the pleasure of having our nephew this weekend while Shelley and Barry were at a wedding. Aly loved being a big helper and Callum really liked watching the older girls. I managed to fit three car seats in my car and we enjoyed the day and hopefully everyone will sleep well tonight.
