wip 7.16.11

holy crap. i'm actually getting some where on these!

i was up and at em early that morning. had to clean the house, go to my hair appointment, and then grocery shop. then i picked up ben and came home and cooked.
we had company! a grown up sleep over. complete with two wee ones.  dave and steph came in with baby sage. the boys were competing in their first mini triathalon saturday, so it was just easier for them to stay with us rather than drive in from the city that early in the morning...

i have one decent picture from friday night. the dads getting ready to change some diapers. ;)

a ridiculously early morning for the boys. they had to be in valpo by 630. steph and i made it there by 8. we didn't have time to chat with them before the start of the race. darn gps...

a shot of all the participants waiting their turn. they had a bunch of different groups that were color coded. dave and nick were red.

mommy and beans.

nick made it out of the water in about 8 minutes. he stopped and gave ben a kiss. too sweet.

and dave...

then we had to pass some time while the bike ride was taking place.
the park they had it at was beautiful. wouldn't mind going back there. and i didn't realize the participants would be where we were wasting time...

blurry. story of our life right now. non stop benjamin.

i am slightly obsessed with trees. came across this awesome river birch.

thank goodness for the clouds or we would have been uber, uber hot.

ben chasing one of the participants...

here's nick. not the best picture. but one of the only action shots. hard with ben trying to run after him!

and dave before he crosses the finish line.

and nick.

they did it! and in less than one hour and forty five minutes each! not bad for 1/4 mile swim, 12 mile bike ride, and a 3 mile run. and they were stopped by an ambulance for about 11 minutes!

going to collect all the gear.

then we headed back to our place.
had some lunch. some of us napped, ahem, i did. they tricked me... sort of!
then we went to my parent's for some pool time! it was sage's first time in the pool. she did great. ;)

somebody got another white castle...

somebody dropped their popsicle!

my first time in the hot tub!

enjoying his banana popsicle.

enjoying relaxing.

chubby bunny... miss sage.

hillbilly baby running around in his diaper. and he was doing this crazy kick thing with his foot!

wasn't sure if nick was going to feel up to it or not...
but at the last minute we decided to head out to see his dad play in his band from back in the day, jacob grimm.
it was a late night and we had a long day, so we left atter only a few hours {hard when it didn't start until after 9!} . so glad we were at least able to visit. even if it wasn't for the entire time.

uncle john and his lighter 'app'


nick and ben played in the pool a bit. {i posted video from that morning a bit ago}

ben thought he should take a picture of daddy in the pool...

and those darn bathing suits and his lil swimmer hanging out!

i'm pretty sure he didn't want to get dressed and insisted on only wearing a diaper after being outside. i'm not really sure!

 hanging with daddy at the trek store.
nick decided he needed a real triathalon bike. i guess he's going to keep it up!
and thankfully, there was a sale in honor of the tour de france.
was a long afternoon. ben was a champ. so proud of both of my boys.

and the new bike... pretties.
