Monkeys and sitting up

Things have been a little rough around here the last few weeks. Elliott got a little cold, and we just can't seem to kick it. I think we might be on the downhill slope, but I think she might be trying to get some teeth too. Who knows. Thankfully she is back to sleeping through the night. :)

Elliott sits! She has started sitting up really well. Still a little wobbly, but sitting for the most part. Both of us are much happier now that she can sit and look around.

We went to the Zoo last weekend when Jill and her family was here. We weren't the only ones with that great idea, the zoo was a ZOO! Elliott & Elsie loved the monkeys. They could follow them as they ran from one side of the cage to the other. It was hilarious.

We had such a fun time when Jill was here. She came and stayed with us one night, and we had so much fun. We went to Pizza Factory, and watched the new Narnia movie. The kids played outside, and we got to visit. Thanks Jill for coming to visit! Jill goes to Girls Camp next week, so we get to have a little visitor for a few days. Yay!

Calls Fort Triathlon - June 2011

Josh decided a couple weeks ago he would do a Sprint Triathlon at the ski lake. Some friends of his from work were doing it, so he decided to give it a try.

Of course he did great. He is so athlete it makes me sick. He has mentioned how much faster of a runner he used to be, that always makes me feel a little bit better. :)

We bought Troy's old bike and borrowed a tri wet suit, so we was outfitted like the pros!

Josh loves to have his picture taken

Our attempt at getting a picture of all three of us

The support team

Ready and waiting with The Parks

Josh KILLING everyone on the swim - He came out of the water almost 4 minutes ahead of anyone else. His swim time was a little over 12 minutes!

Coming in from the swim - nice wet suit, eh?

Finishing the bike (was in 4th place at this point)

Taking off on the run

Finishing 2nd Overall!

He finished in 76 minutes. His goal was 80 minutes, so he did awesome! Now, he is planning another in July and is trying to hit 70 minutes. He is also trying to talk me into doing it. I think the later will be the hardest. :)

Good job Josh! We are so proud of you. No only did he do a triathlon in the morning, but water skied after, and them played softball that night. He is an animal.

I can't believe summer is almost here! It seems from now until September, time flies.

Some exciting things that have happened to us this month:

  • Jane Lily Kendall was born to James and Jenny Kendall (Josh's sister, and she was born in late May)

  • Elliott is 5 months old today!

  • Josh and I were invited to be members of a private ski lake in Honeyville, UT. We LOVE it! It is such a fun little place, with sandy beaches, a pavilion and very nice flushable restrooms. I can't wait until Elliott gets a little older, because I think she will really love it.

  • Lots of Quincy visitors! Jessica and Jason and their families were here over Memorial Day weekend, and we got to spend lots of time with them. So fun to get all the cute cousins together.

  • Josh has been training for a Triathlon, which is this weekend. He decided he would do it about two weeks ago. He's crazy. :)

  • Auntie Keli has been the babysitter this week while Grandma Chris has been in Houston taking care of Jane Lily. Thanks, Keli! We sure do love you!

  • Got some FANTASTIC news from a good friend. I am so excited for her! - More to come

  • I just work and spend time with my cute little family. I love being a mom so much, I never knew I could love something so much!

Happy Birthday to Olivia (7th), Jill (8th) and Richard (9th). We love you all so much!

As you can tell, I am terrible with picture taking. I will make a concentrated effort to be better, I promise. However, I am really good at taking snapshots of this little one.

Elliott got some new jammies. I love the two-piece tight ones, and she is big enough now to fit in them. Josh made me get the boy ones because it is a surfing croc. Good thing it is just jammies. :)

Elliott's newest trick. She thinks she old enough to sit up where ever she is placed. This girl has the strongest abs I have ever seen! She is also eating EVERYTHING! Including the toys on her swing. It's hilarious.
