To San Diego, Daddy's Boulder Triathlon and Denver

We visited my Aunt Kelli and Grandma last weekend in San Diego. My Aunt Kelli had another wedding shower and I got to celebrate with her! We went to a winery for the shower. I tried to nap in my pack-and-play behind those barrels of wine in the background. It was too hot for me; I couldn't sleep. Mom took me for a short ride in the car so I could nap:).
My Aunt Kelli and some of her sisters
You are SO pretty, Auntie!
I got to watch Auntie open presents... :)
I took care of the garbage.
THEN, we got to go to the beach at sunset. I LOVED the sand and water!




Momma and I went for a walk on the beach at sunset. She kept talking to me about how much she loves sunsets... :)
I LOVE you grandma!

While we were in San Diego, Dad was back at home with Grandpa and Uncle Bear playing golf and racing in another triathlon! Here are some pictures... GO DADDY!!!
Daddy bettered his time by 6 minutes this year, and finished 27th out of 1,800 people - We're proud of you Daddy!!! :)
Back in San Diego, the next day we got up and went swimming in the ocean. It was really cold, but REALLY fun!
Momma helped me get used to the water.

Then a big wave got us
I played in the sand with Momma

... and got really dirty!


THEN we visited Jeff and Kelly and Sierra in Denver. We helped them move. Sierra and I were so sweaty from helping so much, we needed a bath! She is so fun!

Tubes and Teeth

Caleb and I visited Jeff and Kelly in Denver Wednesday. Afternoon nap-time meant TUBE time for us; Jeff and Kelly live on the Platte River. As we were walking a mile down the path to the put-in spot, we were joking that this should be a sport: a 10 minute brisk walk upstream between each ride... Jeff said, "Then what would you be judged on?" We giggled and said, "Pointed feet!" ...:) This picture is hilarious, Bro! Good shot:)... pointed feet and all... I'd give us a 6 for pointed feet and a 8 for synchronization! :) Love you Kel!
The water is high this year so we were (me a bit more than Kelly:)) a bit nervous the first time down the first shoot.
After we made it down that, piece of cake, we got a bit cocky... Let's hold hands! :)
Yikes!
I got tossed :)
What an awesome afternoon!
Sierra made it out to cheer us on :)
Picnicing at the pool with the Kissel family
Swimming with the girls :)
So, funny story:
Last month when we were in Minnesota, Caleb got a really runny, plugged up nose, loose cough, etc. We assumed he was teething again since that's what happened before. He's had a runny nose/loose cough on and for the last 4 weeks. We kept checking his top two teeth to see if they were poking through yet... no teeth. We'd heard the top two take a while to poke through, so we just assumed his were taking a LONG while. Well, Wednesday Caleb and I were wrestling on the floor and I caught a glimpse of the underside of his top jaw and saw something white. I assumed it was left over food from lunch, so I went in to scoop it out and found THIS:

A TOOTH! Not in the middle, not even next to that, but a "fang" (sorry bud) in the canine spot. I started laughing so hard... who gets that tooth before the front two? We love you big boy! :)

What a Weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

I got to go swimming with Daddy!

Sierra came to visit!

I LOVE YOU Daddy!

... oh ya, when Sierra came, Aunt Kelly and Uncle Jeff came too. We barbecued - Sierra and I had squash and Cherrios and milk.

I went for a bike ride with Mommy and Daddy! YIPEE!

We biked to Mr. Reza's birthday party at the park.
I had lots of fun playing with all the kids!
Alyssa took me down a slide for the first time. I LOVE it!

Then we celebrated Brielle's birthday at the Cunningham's. Happy Birthday Brielle!

... and made a pyramid with our small group!
