Swim Meet vs Arden Pirates

After a week off, we're back to swimming Saturday!  The boys both had a great day.  Tyler decided he would swim his events and came close to breaking his times.  Cody really turned it on today, besting his freestyle and backstroke times and getting some 1st place ribbons.  Awesome!

This was our first away meet, so we were outside the pool deck; our view for the morning.

Family Trip Day 6

So to cap off day 5, we finally stopped to check out these giant motorcycle sculptures.

 The boys had a chance to roast hot dogs over the fire
 We decided we wanted our dogs quicker, so bbq it was

On our last morning the boys finally had a chance to ride the banana bikes

This was another great trip!
