Baby Buns!

I go back and forth on whether it's weird to post this little photo series, but it's just so cute I can't help myself! So if this post is mysteriously gone in a few days, you'll know my better judgment prevailed. Until then...enjoy these beautiful buns!

Chase was getting fussy and bedtime was approaching, so I decided to throw him in the kitchen sink (the bath) for 20 minutes to buy us a little time. He LOVES the bath. But apparently what he really loves is just being naked. Because as soon as I took his clothes off, he started wiggling around and squealing happily.

You know Trenton had to get in on the action. Whenever Chase does something, like roll over onto his tummy, Trenton yells "Try!" and runs over to show me he can do it too. Isn't it supposed to be the younger one imitating the older one? For now it's the other way around.

At least Trenton has a diaper on. :)

**By the way, I promise Trenton really does wear pants. A lot of the time, in fact. You just wouldn't guess that from looking at this blog. haha.

A Summer Night

Some pictures are just too cute not to post immediately. This one makes me love my life right now. It seems like a perfect little taste of the fun that's in store for us with these brothers.

I don't think this family is ready for professional family photos yet... :)

Last Saturday, right after Ryan's triathlon, we made a brave attempt of capturing a family photo with the amazing background of San Francisco that Treasure Island provides. The children (well, mainly one of the children) were far more interested in the rocks than the camera. Oh well!

Once again, Chase kills me in this photo! You too?

Btw, if you've never driven around Treasure Island, you should. Next time you're on the Bay Bridge, hop off and take a quick tour of the island. It's a strangle little place, with an old military history, but the view of San Fran is unbeatable.

Almost 5 Months Old

Doesn't this little face just kill you?!

Our Triathletes

I don't know about Ryan and Kyle, but I had a blast at the triathlon! There is just something about the atmosphere at this kind of an event that is so inspiring. It makes me want to do hard things. We (well, mostly just me) were very peppy fans and cheered on anyone who looked like they could use a little extra boost. Seriously, so much fun! (I'm pretty sure the guys had fun too. :)

Right after Trenton saw Ryan, he ran halfway into the street before I even realized what was happening. He was so sad when I scooped him up and Daddy had to keep running! Trenton even got a little teary! I did my best to explain, emphasizing the words "Daddy" and "back." After that he sat on my lap for 10 minutes barely moving an inch, which we waited for Ryan to come back by. Big T was really happy when Daddy came across the finish line and quit running past him!

Go Kyle! Seriously, it's ridiculous how much I enjoyed cheering our men on!

Anxiously waiting for Daddy or Uncle Kyle to run by. I've gotta say, we rocked as spectators. :)

More spectating...

The big finish! It's a good sign when you're crossing the finish line with a smile. (Btw, disregard the time on the clock; it's not accurate based on the time his heat started.)

Way to go, babe!

For the record, it was an Olympic distance triathalon--a 1-mile swim, 25-mile bike, and 6-mile run. Both guys finished so strong; I was so proud!

Who knows...Maybe it will be me wearing the wet suit next time! (Guess I'll have to conquer my loathing for cold water first.)

Swim Bike Run!

Ryan and his brother, Kyle, are doing the San Francisco Triathlon on Treasure Island as we speak! Ryan sent me this image from his Blackberry right before they started the race. I just think it's so cute!

The boys and I are off to meet them at the finish line! We'll let you know if they survive!
