Look Out World

There's a new racer in town!

A few weeks ago Spencer injured his knee doing Jiu-Jitsu. His Doctor says that until they figure out exactly what they need to do to fix it that he should not do Jiu-jitsu or Racquetball (anything that has lunges or twisting of the knee ect..) The Doctor did say he could Swim, Run, Walk, and Bike. So guess who is training for a triathlon? The Sman ran in his first official race on Saturday and did pretty awesome, it was the Dam to Dam race, and he did the 5 miles in 46 minutes. Here's a few pictures of my little Tri-Athlete! GOoooo BABE!!

10am start time was a little too early for Eli
(that's funny since he wakes up at 5:30?)

Sergio, I love/ hate him.

Owen is mostly over taking naps. Last week after lunch Owen told me he was "ready for his nap now." I was pretty excited that he would want to go to sleep. 95% of the time Sergio ruins our naps by barking at people knocking at the front door or a bird he sees out the window. I have to lay down by Owen when he takes naps, I am not sure why, but it is the only way we have found that he will actually fall asleep, then I can sneak out and have some me time. Anyway, Just as he was drifting off to sleep, I remembered the dog, and went to get him to bring him in by us so he couldn't hear the door, or see any birds. He (the dog) runs into Owen's room, and jumps up on my pillow and blanket. Before I could even tell him to "Get off!!" he PUKES all over my pillow!! Never mind to that nap, since my afternoon would now be full of laundering all of Owen's bedding ect. I HATE this Dog!!!

skip to the next morning... here is a clip of him being super patient and nice with Eli. Seriously is any dog this good with kids??

P.S. Don't worry, I am certain we brushed his teeth before this.

P.P.S. We already know he is super fat, he eats the kids food like crazy. I am thinking that is why he is so nice to them, he couldn't scare away his main treat source, right?

Aunt Millie-Mill came for a visit last weekend. Camille works for Hawk Watch and came down for the local bird festival. On Saturday she brought a real live raptor to our house. Owen was slightly LESS interested than Eli in the bird of prey.
