Happy 37th Birthday sweetie! I know this summer has been a rough one for you and I hate to see that you are still in pain. I know you want your body to get back to normal and today you are feeling even older than your age. I'm hoping what me and the boys have planned for today will cheer you up and make your day a fun one. It really stinks that you can't compete in the triathlon this weekend but I'm happy for you that you are still going with the club and will get to cheer them on and have some fun with them. You deserve a little getaway. I will miss you though and I hope I am still sane after having you gone for 3 days. LOVE YOU.
I know this picture is 5 years old but it is still one of my favorite pictures of us....that's why it's framed and on my nightstand. We are also in one of our favorite places.....Colorado!!

We had a crazy busy weekend. Friday night we went out with 3 other couples. One of our friends was in town from Vegas so we all went out to dinner and back to Brad and Erica's house to hang out. Turns out 3 of us couples had no kids until the next day. We definitely took advantage of it. Margaritas, sangria, some Wii (yes, we bowled and rocked out to Guitar Hero) and lots of talk and laughter. We didn't get to bed until 2am. Whew, didn't know I could do that anymore. Saturday was busy setting up for our schools' Junefest and then working at it Saturday night and hanging out there. Sunday was a family reunion for my side of the family and then dinner at the in-laws. To say we were exhausted by sunday night is an understatement! But it was a fun weekend. I didn't get many pictures this weekend but managed to get a few.

He's such a cute little booger isn't he?? He never fails to bring a smile to my face. We had ordered a 3x5 single of him and then a team picture but the coach always gets a free one so they made this 8x10 up of Noah for Todd. Isn't it cute?? Noah took a look at it and asked "How did I get on there?" My little slugger.

Saturday was the annual Tri-Jesus Triathlon. This would have been Todd's 4th year, Drew's 3rd, and Noah's 2nd. Unfortunately Todd wasn't able to finish it this year. For the blog readers that don't know, he hurt his back a couple of weeks ago and is still having troubles. He wasn't going to race and then decided at the last minute to try it. He managed to make it through the swim and bike but by the time it came for him to run, he was in too much pain to do it. I felt so bad for him. I know he's getting frustrated with the pain and it's keeping him from doing the things he loves. He's getting an MRI soon so hopefully we can see what's going on, if anything.
Drew during the swim portion. He blew his swim time out of the water over last years time. (sorry for the bad pun)
Drew crossing the finish line.....way earlier than I expected. You were a superstar Drew!!
Noah starting out on the swim. This was the first triathlon he has done without a flotation device so I was very proud of him. He got so tired but he never gave up. Great job babe! Look at that grin on his face. He was so excited.
For the second year in a row, I was able to get a picture of Drew and Noah swimming together. Noah was on his way out as Drew was on his way back.
That hill was too big for Noah, he pushed his bike up the last part. It's ok buddy!
Noah running towards the finish line. You're almost there!
Drew with his finishing medal.
A bunch of the club members went out to eat at Cutters that night to celebrate. The kiddos were all sitting at another table. It was a good time!

For Flashback Friday I decided that since my youngest brother Nate is moving home permanently after graduating from college and his graduation party is this sunday, I would do a little flashback on his life.
We had a little different relationship. I was almost 13 years old when he was born so I was able to have a more active part in taking care of him. I changed his diapers, rocked him to sleep, babysat him, etc. I loved when he would wake up from his nap and stand in his crib calling to be picked up.
Nate, always the entertainer.
Last but certainly not least, Nate's College Graduation.

Aiden has officially joined our soccer family. I had posted some pics awhile back from one of Aiden's games. This spring he played tiny tot soccer for the first time. His Uncle Matt (my brother) coached his team along with his cousins' Blake and Ty. We got their soccer pictures back a couple of weeks ago but I've procrastinated getting them scanned in.
I thought this picture turned out so incredibly cute. He was making goofy faces so I wasn't expecting it to turn out great. He's very lucky he's a handsome, affectionate dude. That's the only thing that saves him sometimes!
Here's the team picture. My brother Matt in the back right corner with my nephew Ty on the end right in front of him. Blake is the second from the left in the back row. It was fun although it wasn't until the last game that Aiden actually got into it more and made it through the whole game without getting in trouble. Progress people, progress!! Looking forward to fall when everyone is back to playing soccer.

My dear sweet blog, I haven't been very good to you lately. I know I haven't been around much but I've had a lot of personal crap to deal with and let's face it......you can't really keep quiet. I mean, come on, everything I tell you gets shared with everyone that comes by to check you out. I know that no one else wants to hear me moan and groan about my problems. I promise to be a better bloggy friend. In fact, I think I have something to blog about......maybe tomorrow.
Good night Dear Blog.

I fell in love with vinyl. I had been using regular scrapbooking rub ons for some of my projects but was always worried at how fragile they were and if they would come off. Vinyl is the way to go people. I will never go back. I found this great site called E.A.D. Designs from my friend Amy and have fallen in love. It is extremely easy to apply and it says it comes up with just the heat from your hair dryer. Good to know when it comes time to repaint a wall. Here are just a few things I've done with it.
I've made this monogram tile for a wedding in a couple of weeks. I had been making these with regular scrapbooking rubons but was always so worried that they'd rub off. The vinyl is so much better so I will be using this from now on.
I think owls are the cutest things in the world so I had to put this little guy on the wall b/t my dining room and kitchen. Isn't he adorable??
