CLU Turkey Tri

My brother assisted in putting on the CLU Turkey Tri. Somehow he talked me into was so much fun.
I had a great cheering squad including Karl, the boys, my sister, Jon, and my dad.
My goal for the near future is to find a sprint triathlon.

Happy Thanksgiving to all...I hope you have a wonderful holiday surrounded by family and loved ones! We plan to spend the day at my parents home. Check back next week for our turkey pics!

Trip to Vegas

We were in Vegas a few weeks ago. It was fun to celebrate a belated birthday for Micah and see family. Brayden is getting so big! It is hard to get a good "cousin" picture because it is near impossible to get a baby, toddler and preschooler to sit still!!
We went to a children's museum where the kids had a blast. Brayden was such a trooper and is so good matured. He didn't get fussy the whole time we were at the museum.
The boys had fun "flying" in the airplane, playing mechanic, paying with bubbles, and "shopping" in the grocery store.
Karl's buddy, Ron, completed the half Silverman while we were there. It was fun to go out to Lake Mead and see him swim. Karl and I also caught him on the run portion to give him suppoort. Ron put forth an amazing effort and we are so proud of him!! What an acompishment!

Micah turns 2!

Micah turned 2 this week. He is exactly the same height that Matt was at age 2. We had a family gathering on Monday night and then met some friends at the Fire Station on Tuesday and then had them over for dinner and cake! There was a theme with gifts this year...Disney Cars and Micah loves them. He got Cars sheets, boots, books, and lots of cars! He has been playing with all his new toys and taking a few to bed with him at night. He even had a Cars cake made by his mom! Nice work mom! The Fire Station was a hit as well. We were there for almost 1.5 hours with a full tour of the station and a REAL fire truck. One of the firefighters showed us all the equipment and put on all his gear. It was great to have the kids see a real firefighter with all his gear and hear about what happens in a fire. The firefighters were very good with the kids. They all got to try on some gear and sit in the fire truck. Check out all the pictures.

Now it's Mommy's turn to write...I read what Daddy wrote and he did a great job of summarizing the past few days.
I like to think that maybe someday you (Micah) will read this blog so I want to make sure that you know how much fun we had celebrating the day with you! You are turning into such a big boy and it is exciting to watch you grow and experience life. We love you very much. Happy 2nd Birthday!
