2nd Tri-- Better Time- that is all I wanted!

I did it-- 2 down and more Tri's to come. On Saturday July 26th, Wendy and I did our 2nd Triathlon. It was so much fun. We both beat our times from the 1st Tri. That was our goal. I still have anxiety in the water but it was MUCH better than the 1st time. Lacey and Amy did it too and they did SOOO great! Of course my very supportive husband had all our kids and Wendy's kids waiting at the finish line!! (Best husband in the world!)
I am so thankful for my health and my beautiful family to enjoy it with. MaKenna and Raegan are training for their 1st KID TRIATHLON in September. I will keep you updated.


We decided to run away for a couple of days and take the kids up to Oklahoma. We went to Lake Murray, Turner Falls and Arbuckle Wilderness. It was so beautiful and kind of hard to believe that these little mountains were only 1 1/2hours away. I was training for my second tri so we drug the bikes and the kids up there. We had a blast! Just makin' memories.

Our New Doggie Named Milo

We have a new addition to our family, he is the sweetest dog we have ever met. We love him so much already. He is just perfect, he is great with the kids (WONDERFUL!), so sweet, loving, patient and very helpful. He lets us know when Easton is awake in his bed, when Ella is asleep and he goes everywhere we go. We haven't left him home by himself at all. We have been to the dog park, on 2 different 3 mile jogs, to the pool, Aunt Wendy & Scotts house, the shooting range to play in the ponds and chase the other labs and just to run errands. He loves to ride in the car. He has family prayer with us at night and Easton and Ella want to teach him how to fold his arms and close his eyes:):)
Ella asks me every 10 mins if we are keeping Milo forever. She loves him so much. He sits really still for her so that she can brush him every morning and every night for 30 mins.
He is a wonderful addition to our family.
Let's see what else has been happening???
Scott and I just celebrated our 7th Anniversary. He is the love of my life. For those of you who know us really well- you know we were made for each other. We are enjoying this stage in our life so much. Our kids are great, we are all healthy-- this is what the Lord meant when he says HAVE JOY!!
MaKenna is at Girls Camp. We miss her sooooo much. She is such a joy and I am so grateful that I get to share my time here with her. Ella and Easton miss their sister soooo much too.
Work is good, life is good-- we are busy and full of fun!
I went to a baby shower and got to catch up with some old friends and it was so fun. Steph --we love you and will miss you all so much! Arizona is a great vacation place-- we will see you soon! Can't wait to see Dave with a Baby Girl!

Don't mind Ella's little sunburn on her nose, she said if Milo doesn't wear sunscreen on his face then she shouldn't either. Aghhhh the joys of motherhood! :)

Ella Pre-school Grad

Wow I am not a very good Blogger! I am trying to keep up but it jsut gets me. Here are some pictures of Ella's preschool graduation. She is so big and we are so proud of her. The one and only thing she says she wants in life is to have a Dog. stay tuned...
