Marisa's Birthday Cake

This is a birthday cake that I decorated for my niece Marisa's 5th birthday.
It was a lot of work. I can get a little crazy about details sometimes and drive myself crazy!
The kids LOVED it!

Raygen's 4th Triathlon

Raygen is an old pro at this and loves it! She loves the triathlon and would do them all the time if she could. The older you get the father you have to go, so hers has become more of a challenge. Rylee's race was right before hers and she wanted to run with her. I didn't let her but she did run with Alize and Taylor when it was their turn to cheer them on. It is always a good workout for us. Tracy ran with Rylee and I ran with Raygen and Taylor. We love this family activity!

Rylee's 1st Triathlon

We are so proud of her!
Bless her little heart. We as parents were not prepared for this one. In fact we only found out about it 4 days before. So there was no training or do we have the right kind of bikes for the girls. However they finished and did not give up. Rylee was tired when it was all said and done. She wants to know if she can skip it next year. We will see when it gets closer.She does like having a medal and showing it to everyone.

See what I mean about the bike. Her tires have been flat (well lets just say a little to long) and we didn't realize how much she had grown. We have been a little preoccupied with life. Poor thing is this what they talk about being the middle child? I hear the end up faring the best in life, as I know she will!
I just wanted to squeeze her she was so cute in the water with her swimming cap on!
Alize goes to school with them, Raygen and Rylee are in the middle,
and Taylor (their aunt) is on the end.
