Alexa lost her 1st tooth!!

After weeks of not touching the loose tooth (her or me)  she finally got it out.  When it started to hurt to eat or touch she decided to wiggle it and got it out in 1 day.  Well, actually it fell out in her sleep.  Yes, it was that loose!

I hate getting pictures taken!  I am rarely the one in the picture.  But, After a few request for pictures of my belly  I am posting one.  This is a pic that my cousin (awesome photographer) took.  I would only post one with my belly covered, so here is one of the few.  

Me at about 23 weeks!

Sera turns Nine!!

I can't believe she is Nine!  It seems like I just had her.  She is so sweet and thoughtful.  She is very sensitive.  You can always count on her for a hug.  She is the best!!
She has very specific taste in everything. One thing is NO pink.  Since moving into this house she has been BEGGING me to re-do it.  She thought it looked like a baby room.  So, for her birthday I worked for 3 straight days and redecorated the whole room.  I painted it (which she thought was ALL I was going to do), then I spent a day cleaning and organizing it.  On her birthday I decorated the entire thing while she was at school as a suprise.  She had told me Exactly how to do it MANY times.  
This is the result.  She wanted Brown walls, and Aqua(her favorite color), with polka dots(the sheets).  She still wants me to paint polka dots on the wall.   We will see!
She was very surprised.  It was a lot of fun.  I am glad that she liked it and had no idea what I was doing.  
We finished the night at Neilsen's(her choice).  Grandma and Grandpa joined us along with Uncle Chad, Uncle Jason, Uncle Cody, Aunt Ashley, and Rilyn.  Thanks everyone for helping to make it a great day!

Park City Triathlon

Frankie had a triathlon in Park City a few weeks ago.  He did a great job.  He did the olympic length again and beat his old time by 30 min.  Way to go!!!  We are so Proud!!
Here are the kids waiting for dad after his mile swim!
This is what we all felt like after a long day!  The kids are so great at these races.  They had to do a LOT of walking at this one and never complained.  They are the best.

We are lucky to have great friends that were at the race also.  They have a connection with a great house in Deer Valley.  It was Awesome.  This is the porch on the house.  I love it when the race is somewhere great to vacation.

We did a lot of fun stuff including the alpine slides.  This is Alexa and dad.
Sera got to go by herself this year.  She did Great!

Boston laughed the entire time.  

It was a great LONG weekend.  We didn't want to come home.  Thanks dad for racing at such a great place.  We love seeing you improve every race.  Your dedication and hard work is always a great example to us!!
