Gavin Turns 4!

Gavin turned 4 on August 25. I can't believe my baby is 4! I feel so old!

Yes, we gave Gavin a Drum set. We are a bit crazy, but somebody's kid needs to play the drums, right?! He loves them, and they are great in the theater room, where we have extra sound-proofing.
We had Gavin's birthday party at ASI Gymnastics. The kids had so much fun. We had half the neighborhood with us!
At the end, they brought Gavin to the front to give him a present, and the coach in charge was playing with Gavin and asked him if he wanted a dirty diaper for his birthday. Gavin was not amused. When they brought out his gift (a free pass to come back and play for a couple of hours) he wanted nothing to do with it. He was so offended! Hee Hee. Even though he gets older, he doesn't loose his orneriness!

First Day of School

Cute Kids on their first day of school. Marissa in 2nd grade, Ethan in Kindergarten, and Gavin in Pre-school.

Matt's Olympic Triathalon in Austin, TX

We went out to dinner the night before the race so Matt could "carb-load" and then attempted to see the Bats that live under the Congress Street Bridge. We waited for over an hour to see them come out, and they never did. We could hear them, and smell them, and we did see maybe 5 of them; but from what we heard, there are supposed to be up to 1 million of them that come out at dusk to eat. They even had a bat festival going on that night, and no one got to see them! We were so disappointed.

Matt with the kids right before his 7:10am start time.

Coming out of the water and headed toward the bike portion.

Matt just finished his second triathlon....This one was an "Olympic Distance" where he had complete a 1500 meter open water swim, bike 40 kilometers (25 miles) an run a 10k (6.2 miles).

He finished in a tad under 3 hours (2:53) and was pleased with the time for his first race...
