A Busy Day ~ But It Was Fun

Trent placed 3rd in his division.

HOLY CRUD! I placed 3rd in my division. Who'd of thunk it? Not me.

Bruce placed 2nd in his division.

Terry placed 2nd in his division.


Yesterday was the Triathlon again. Terry, Bruce, John, Todd, Ashley, Trent & I all competed (along with 285 others). John, Liz and family came up on Thursday night and stayed at our house. That was fun. I always like it when they stay here because I get to see them so much more. It's fun to have races when we are all in them. Todd, Bruce, Terry & I all had early start times. Trent, Ashley & John all had really late start times, so we got to watch each other race. Unfortunately it was VERY hot yesterday. The later three had to run in the really nasty heat! I improved my best triathlon time by nearly 6 minutes. I placed! I've never even come close to placing before, and I hadn't ever even thought to this year. Todd would have placed, probably 2nd, but he did and extra lap. Anyway, it was fun. I meant to get a picture of all of us together, but I forgot to until half of us were gone. Oh, well.

Bruce & I went to the outdoor theatre last night with Mom, Dad, Ashley & Trent to see Les Miserables. (Dad paid). It was really good, even though I was so tired I was about to drop. Lydia loves Les Mis, and I had told her that we might try to get into the free seats one night when it was there. The announcer last night said that it was the last night of the season for subscribers. Lydia asked me today when we were going, and I told her it was over. She was crushed! She cried and cried! I felt like such a cruddy mother. So when we got home from church, we went on line to see what the Fox had showing this year. No Les Mis. I decided to check the theatre web sight to see what they were doing next year. As it turns out, there are three nights left which are not for subscriber seats. I snatched up 3 of the cheap seats. We can't really afford it, but I was afraid that we'd go and wait in line forever for the free seats, and not get in. So, anyway, Bruce, Lydia & I are going for her last un-school night. We'll have to take a potty break during the red light district scene or something.
