Kids loved hanging out with Grandpa and Nanda Cindy while Jer and I were in Idaho. They are already asking when we get to go back. They did all sorts of crafts, played video games, enjoyed the splash pad, Went the the movie theater to see incredibles 2-and got popcorn and treats at the theater, got to pick some sun-sugar tomatoes, and took on the hornets with the slat guns. It's no wonder they didn't want to leave when Jer and I showed up. We sure love the time we get with these two!
We signed up for the superman back in January. We thought we'd have plenty of time to train and were doing well in Virginia to be on track but the move cross county and the home remodel training took a major back seat. So we went with the attitude to have fun and just finish. That's just what we did. It was a beautiful day for a race and Jer and I felt good throughout the course. I did get a flat on mile 22 of the bike, but was proud of myself to fix it and continue on. So, we have another superman in the books and we got to meet the Iron-cowboy!
Living away for so long we forget sometimes that the 24th is a holiday. We didn't celebrate much, just some quality family time, slip-n-slide down the slide, and our own fireworks show. The kids love being able to use the lighter and light the fireworks themselves. Maybe next year we'll actually make it to the parade and other festivities...Maybe.
