*this was LAST night...the night before my triathlon :-)
we've been having 100 degree...sunny days for weeks.
and, of course, on the day of rebekah's POOL party/triathlon it's rainy and 80 degrees out all day.
the rain stopped for the party...and we were so glad!
the girls all met at the pool in our neighborhood and we got them all set up for a little triathlon!
all the clothes set up for when they transition from the swim to the bike :-)
about to swim across the pool
(because the weather was so questionable we literally had the pool to ourselves!)
getting dressed for the bike...
they even got their bodies "marked"
headed out on the bike (pat led them as a group through the path in our neighborhood)
aren't bailey and sawyer so cute watching??
getting back from the bike (i had to stay in this one spot...i would have loved to be all along the path!)
grabbing a drink of water before they head out on the run.
pat ran them up to the elementary school, around the track once, and back.
mr. goetz stayed with kathryn and went on the run, too :-)
crossing the finish line!
joshua did the whole thing, too!
and, according to pat, complained less than some of the girls ;-)
then we went back into the pool and played!
the girls came up with the cutest idea to jump in the pool "on the count of 3" and have me take their picture
getting set up...
let's do that again!
she had so much fun!
she wanted a flip-flop cake.
it was pretty easy!
we had pizza and fruit and gatorade of course!
the "favors" were the water bottles you can see on the table with their names on them.
and they each got a shirt (like in a "real" race...you get a shirt...)
happy birthday, rebekah!
we love you so much!!!
(and i'm glad i actually have a couple more weeks before you REALLY turn 9 years old!)
