We arrived Friday night at my Grandma’s in Kennewick after a fairly quick 4.5 hour drive (about 300 miles). I, as per usual, slept through the majority of it.
I just get so sleepy in the car.
Saturday morning my husband was up and off bright an early to compete in his Titanium Man Olympic Triathlon. I got the kids ready and met up with him at the end of the first leg of the race: swimming.
Kids got a high five and then he was moving on to transition to the bike.
While we waited for the biking leg we went to a very nearby playground to play. My Aunt Mary came by to keep me company.
Which was good because shortly after this last picture of Eli was taken he fell and got a bloody nose. Tissue was about the only thing I didn’t have in my bag, Eli was freaking out, and I was trying to console him while also trying to keep myself clean. Aunt Mary to the rescue – she ran to the bathroom for wet paper towels, and we got him cleaned up as best as possible. My shirt would have to wait. Poor kid.
Hannah couldn’t let Eli have all the fun so she decided to fall on the way back to the car.
After all that we headed down to the ending point for the triathlon. Mickey had already returned on his bike and was out on his run. Finally, shortly before noon we caught a glimpse.
A triumphant finish!
Nice job honey, even if you were hobbling a teeny bit for a day or so afterwards! We are proud of you!!
The evening was spent at my Aunt Mary and Uncle Ron’s home in Kennewick. They have a huge backyard and the kids enjoyed every bit of it.
Yep, that’s a pool for a small dog.
Great way to end a long but very fun day!
