Stacy's visit and Onion Man Triathlon

Our good friends Shane, Courtney and Kendall came from Lynden  for Memorial weekend. Colt is in Disneyland with his Memah and Poppi and without him around to wrestle with Jax it made for a pretty quiet weekend. Kendall is one of the most laid back not to mention cutest little girls I have ever been around. We had a great time enjoying our nice weather, talking and relaxing. On Sunday Dave and Shane did the Onion man Olympic triathlon here in Walla Walla.
On Saturday we went out to the lake so the boys could get in the water before the big race.
Jax and Kendall are about 9 months apart and they pretty much played alongside each other all weekend. I wouldn't say they played together but they were always side by side.
The men ready to swim in the cold water. It was at this point I was very glad I was not doing the triathlon the next day.
The kids for the weekend. It was a relatively low key and quiet weekend. It amazing how quiet it seems without Colt around, 2 kids seems so easy!
The day of the triathlon Court, the kids and I drove up to my parents house and watched the bike ride portion. Once Dave and Shane had both passed the house we got back in the car and drove to the finish line to watch them come in on the run. Shane finished first and we let the kids play around while we waited for Dave to finish.
Here he comes!
Dave grabbed Jax and crossed the finish line with him. Jax was slapping people's hands as they ran through the finishers chute.
To say Dave has been busy lately would be an understatement. He has been working from morning until 10-11 at night for the past couple months and he did not get to train nearly as much as he wanted too. I was so proud of him for finishing. He has already signed up for another one in September and he is trying to convince me to do it with him.
The Stacy's. 
We love this family and have such a great time with them. Court is due in September with a boy!
I see this picture and miss Colt. I wish he could have been there, he would have loved watching all the bikers and runners and seeing Dave finish.
Later that night we got a babysitter and went out to dinner and fro-yo. Perfect end to a great weekend! Looking forward to August and our friends vacation in Crescent Bar!!!
