Madsen Cycles

Check out the link in my sidebar to Madsen Cycles. We would LOVE to own one of these someday. Most especially so that we can have Caleb join us on bike rides. He is too big for bike trailors, and we have not found anything that would possibly work until now!!

Big Day!

Yesterday was a BIG DAY for all three of my boys

Holden started 3rd Grade at East Sandy Elementary

Caleb also started "3rd" grade at Jordan Valley, things worked out and he ended up having the teacher he had for Kindergarten again. We will miss Penny, but Dolly comes in a close second!

And this guy ate rice cereal for the first time and he LOVED it!!

1000 Warriors

Yesterday Tyler competed in the 1000 warriors cycling race. It is known as the hardest stage in the Tour Of Utah for the Pro Racers. Last year it was just a "ride" for those who wanted to participate, Tyler wasn't able to sign up. This year they made it into a race, it was 95 miles, with lots and lots of climbing mountains. Tylers mom Jan and her husband Doug were his feed support at Sundance Ski Resort, then they met up with me, my dad, Holden and Finley in Highland for the second feed zone. We barely made it to the next feed zone before him, so then we zoomed up to Snowbird Ski Resort for the finish. Tyler crossed the finish line first in his category. The heat was brutal, nearing 100, and even hit 86 up in the mountains, so he said it was one of the hardest races he has ever done!

Patiently waiting for daddy to cross the finish line

Here he comes!!

Holden hit up the Skull Candy booth for all their free SWAG!

Half a Year!

I cannot believe my baby is six months old! It seems so short, yet it seems like he has always been a part of our family.
He has become quite the active little guy, he is always grabbing things and exploring, and likes to be in the middle of everything going on
He rolls from his stomach to his back
He babbles "mamamama"
He likes to blow raspberries and produce lots of spit and bubbles

I love his little feet

All of his chins

I love when he crosses his ankles, which he does quite frequently

Hydrocephalus Walk

On Sept. 26th, we will be doing the Hydrocephalus Walk. If not for all the research and development done by the Hydrocephalus Association, Caleb would not be alive today. If anyone out there would like to support us in this cause and donate please go to our fundraising page.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
