Todd and I along with my Dad and Seth participated in our first triathlon Saturday. It was so much fun and we can't wait to do it again next year. Todd got 21st overall with a time of 1:19. My time was 1:44 and I got 3rd place in my age division. Seth had a time of 1:46 and Dad a time of 1:56. We were all excited to finish under 2 hours!

After almost 16 months and speaking many many words...... James finally pointed to me and said Mama today! I couldn't be more proud.

Fun week with family

This week some of Todd's family came to visit. It was so much fun to have them here and the week went by too fast. After they left I realized I didn't do a great job of taking everyone's picture. In addition to Robin, Shawn and Tatiana coming to visit Todd's Aunt Susan, Aunt Joan, cousin Jillian, and cousin Michael were also here. The kids all had a great time together. We took a trolley tour of Port Huron, spent lots of time on the beach, and had a couple campfires too!

James is spoiled by everyone in the family, but Papaw Greg is becoming notorious for spoiling James with little treats(donut holes, chips and ice cream to name a few). Things that we would never give him. No wonder James likes to stay near his Papaw especially at mealtime or call out his name from his highchair. If James ever asks why he had a such a big tummy we will say, "it was your Papaw Greg!"


James has got to see many of his 2nd and 3rd cousins the past few weeks. Alex and Madison(my cousin Chris' kids) came to visit from Kalamazoo over 4th of July. Megan and Ellie have come over a few times to swim. They are my second cousin Shannon's twin girls that are 2 1/2. And last week my cousin Sarah came to visit from AZ. James is enjoying all of the attention! My favorite picture is Sarah enjoying her first campfire and s'mores!
