Jess has been trying to convince me to do a triathalon for almost 2 years now! It sounded fun but I knew without a big boost I would never actually sign up. So one sunday while I was at a meeting my dear sweet husband signed me up and I knew there was no turning back! So me and some of my best friends decided to train and do it all together! It was so fun to train with people you love to be around and to experience all of these first timer experiences with them!! We had a blast! I even learned to swim!!!! Yes I am proud of that!! Super slow but hey a swim is a swim!! Thanks ladies for the awesome experience! And special thanks to Jess for coaching us all through it! She was so patient and understanding of our stupid questions and concerns! She took us on a lot of bike rides and helped us swim so we didn't die at the lake!! I love Jess so much and I am so grateful to have such an awesome sister in law!! Without her, none of us could have done this!!
All of us lovely ladies completed our first triathalon together! We went to dinner to celebrate before the actual race!!

This is Natalie and I with Jess and Johanna, our inspirations!!

The best group of ladies EVER!!

Muffins with Mom
Chandlers school did a muffins with mom breakfast! It was fun although I did not feel old enough to be participating as the actual mom! Where has the time gone and how has chandler grown so fast?

Jess and Grant

Me and my favorite little guy!

These 2 are the best of friends! We love having grant over to play and their favorite thing to do right now is catch lizards!

You guys have been staying busy and having lots of fun!! Your kids are growing up so fast, and I was cracking up at the things they said on Easter:). Hilarious!! Thanks again for coming down to visit!! We had a blast with you guys, and I always enjoy hanging out and visiting with you and Todd.

Congrats on the triathalon!!! So awesome!!! I love that you have lizards to catch. Ty would be in his heaven. He caught a frog last week and it got out in the middle of the night... never to be found!! Ahhh. Chan is a handsom little fella:)

Way to go with the tri! I've always wanted to do one of those, but the swimming thing is holding me back. You look great!
