long time....

The girls at Lillie's party and Joshua!
Lillie hunting for eggs

Well since my last post my little girl has turned SIX years old! We had an Easter egg hunt for her birthday this year which was a lot of fun! We had the party at my parents house and my Dad built this incredible tree house for her for her birthday! We also rented a bounce house. She had a lot of fun and I can't believe she is six and almost done with her kindergarten year of school!

Getting ready to begin!
Swim Colleen Swim!

Also since the last post we have completed the MS 150, which is a 150 + mile bike ride from Houston to Austin. The ride is done in two days ending the first day in La Grange. My Dad, Eric and I have ridden in it three times now. It is incredibly hard but it is so much fun and rewarding. I also really enjoy that it is time spent with my Dad and husband. I also took on another challenge this year and did my first triathlon! I didn't train as much as I should have but was proud that I finished! It was a 500 meter swim in a lake, a 15 mile bike ride and a 5 K run. The run was definitely the hardest for me, in fact I walked most of it. My goal is to do another one, but to really train! I am proud of myself for taking on the challenge! While I was riding my bike I was thinking that last year my Dad and I were sitting in one of the local restaurants during the triathlon and I was telling him I would love to do that one day. It wasn't even a year later and there I was. It was an exciting feeling!

WOW, Colleen! I am IMPRESSED!!! I wouldn't even dream of challenging myself to a triathalon. I am extremely sore just from trying to plant a small garden yesterday. Maybe you'll be my motivation to go get off my heiny and exercise....then again, maybe I'll go get another fudge bar from the freezer. :)

And, Lillie - WOW! She looks so grown up in that picture. I have been waiting for the birthday post. I can't even believe that she and Sierra are almost done with Kindergarten. Sniff..sniff.

WE HAVE GOT TO GET TOGETHER ONE OF THESE YEARS!!!! The fishing is still good in Idaho....
