Summer Catch Up

Oh how I miss summer! I miss the warm weather, the playing outside all day and of course the pool!

One of my favorite things about summer time is our BBQ. This was our Father's Day BBQ.

I am so lucky to have a great little family. Ryan is amazing with the girls and they love to do things with him. We found the time to do a little fishing this summer. The girls loved the fish and the worms!

I love the 4th of July!!!!
I love the weather, the parades and 4th of July outfits!
We were so lucky this past summer that Ryan's brother Richy his wife Marie and their amazing kids Linus and Wren came for a visit.

Our little town has the best parade!
More fishing. The kids had a double hook up with fish.
Richy and Linus!
I also love going to Bay Beach Park. They have tons of rides that are only .25 a ride. Because I was so pregnant this summer I did not get to enjoy any of them. Here they all are waiting to go down the giant slide on a potato sack.
At the end of July Ryan completed another triathlon. He was the fastest in the pool of his age group.
He lost some time during his transitions between advents.
He ended up taking 2nd in his age group. He is always #1 in my book!

One of the biggest parts of summer that I miss is our time at the pool. My girls are water babies for sure!!!

As much as I miss summer I do love the holiday season the is approaching quickly!

So proud!

I am so proud of Ryan. He has worked so hard to train for the triathlons that he does. He often gets up every early in the morning to be able to fit his workouts in and not take time away from the family. This past June 18th he completed the Scheels High Cliff Triathlon. It consisted of a 1/4 mile swim, 22 mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile run. It was amazing to watch him accomplish it!

Here is Ryan getting everything set up in the transition area.
The proud and sleepy family waiting for daddy's race to start.
Ryan's number.
The swim.
Time for Ryan's favorite part the bike ride.
Each time Ryan would come into the transition area to switch to the next even the girl would chant "Go, daddy go!"
Off to run the 5k.

At the finish line!
Ryan's friend Nate Gabor also ran the race.
Ryan had another Tri coming up July 23. I can't wait to go cheer him on. I also can't wait until I can start running again.

Daddy Daughter

My Lilly just loves hanging out with her Daddy. Back in June they went to a Daddy daughter dance together. Lilly was so excited to get to go on a special date with her daddy!

I love that Ryan takes time for the girls! I hear they danced and dance and had lots of yummy treats!
