Spring Break 2008

Get naked!

One of the first warm days in Lehi was spent packing for our week-long trip and getting the house spic and span in case anyone (turns out only one) wanted to look at the house while we were gone. The girls played outside all day without sunscreen. I was way to busy to prevent skin cancer. It was actually an experiment to see which girl burns easier. Stella won. I guess she inherited her dad's pale skin. He hates his skin tone but I think it is pretty on Stella. When she's not fried and puffy.

We spent most of our time in Logandale. With my brother Nate's family. (Thanks Cyndi!)

Sara, Stella, Ella, Chloe:

Fred came too.

While in Santa Clara I took my bro-in-law's place in the SHAC triathlon. I took second in the 35 year-old men's division. Here is how I prepared:

Last time I ran (or even exercised) was the Canyonland's half marathon.
Last time I swam and biked was August 2006.
And I got a REALLY bad night's sleep.

I don't mean to brag but I didn't even try. I guess I'm just that good. It was only a beginner course. 4 laps. 5 mile bike. 1.5 mile run. It was fun. I don't know what my time was but either the other men were really, really out of shape or there were only 2 (including me) in the beginner division.

SWEET!!! Whoa that was easy! I'll contact TriUtah and see what needs to be done because I know you need ID in order to pick up your packet. I'll let you know as soon as I find out. You know what you're in for so have a blast! I'm so so so bummed I can't race. I was looking forward to it as a good season starter and so much fun. I'll probably come out to cheer you and others on that day. YEAH!

Fred looks so CUTE!!!!
Hey don't feel bad about the kids burns I have done that before! Now in the summer I bath them in the morning and instead of putting baby lotion on them I put water babies 45 right after they get out of the tub and I never have to reaply it the whole day and they havent been burned since!

OUCH! Poor Stella! I did that to my kids the first day of spring break. I like Heidi's plan of baths in the morning and schmear them with the SPF.
Love the new profile pic, by the way!

It sounds like you made a great 35 year old man. :)

Fred-arella, What a cutie. Left to fend at the hands of a bunch of girls I'm sure. That is one for blackmale later in life.

Did I mention that you make me SICK! ? You were like speedy gonzales at the run. (By the way, Thanks for making me do it. I hated every minute of it but now that it's over, I'm glad I accomplished it).

And to answer your question, YOU ARE THE SPEEDY GONZALESEST AT LEAVING COMMENTS! (-How do you like MY spelling???)
