Our friend was trying to convince Todd to do a triathalon with him, so I called Todd at work and told him I had signed him up (which I hadn't) just to see how he would react. He wasn't too mad at me so I decided to actually sign him up! I was so proud that with only 2 weeks of training he could do it! He swam when he was younger and has been biking with the young men so he was semi-trained! I am proud of you babe!

Ooh La La --Swimming in Lake Mead--



Thank goodness for Todds co-worker James! James has done the Iron Man and was a huge help in getting Todd prepared for his first Triathalon!
Our good friends Curtis and Mellissa. We are so lucky to have made such great friends here in Las Vegas!

Thanks Curtis for encouraging Todd to sign up and do the Triathalon! Way to go guys!

Chan wants to do a triathalon just like his dad! Someday!!!

"Pool" day with the cousins! We love to have all these kids over! My kids always have so much fun with their cousins!

Todd and I got to go to the Lady Antebellum concert! It was so fun! Joe Nichols performed as well as a few other bands! The best part was that it was sponsored by Dr. Pepper so we got unlimited DP!!!! Thanks babe, for another amazing date night!

Watching/Acting out "Secretariat"

We rented the movie Secretariat. It is about a race horse. All of a sudden my boys come in with their cowboy hats, boots and their horses. They tell us to pause the movie while they get ready for the race. I catch them in my bathroom brushing the horses and painting them with my make-up brushes! I love how creative they are and I love to see their imagination in action!

Oh how I love my babies! This is a rare occurance but one I am definetly grateful for! I love my kids and I love to see them have so much fun that they can't stand to be awake any longer! They are the true joy in my life and I love being their mom! I love what great friends they are becoming!

I am laughing so hard at those videos! They are hilarious. I remember going in at night and looking at my kids when they were all asleep, looking so angelic, and vowing to be more patient the next day!! The kids are beautiful, and you are one organized lady to accomplish all you do with your calling on top of everything. You are doing a great job Rikki. I'm so glad you signed Todd up for the triathilon. Way to go Todd!! Just think how far you have come from thowing up after your first spinning class to turning into macho man doing triathilons and soon biking from SLC to Vegas! I am proud of you!!
