Tripp at the Y

Yesterday Rheagan participated in the TRYthalon at the YMCA, but Tripp was there too in support. Here are pictures of him and things he enjoyed.

He was finally successful in getting the LadyBug to crawl on his finger.

This was the coolest bracelet...the beads change color when it senses ultra-violet light!

The "jumpy" things are always a hit.

This sheep is ready for its spring haircut.

This morning, Rheagan participated in a TRYathlon sponsored by the YMCA. The kids, ages 6-12, ran for 1 mile, biked for 1.5 miles and swam 100 yards. She has done this for several years and really enjoys it. There is no competition...everyone is a winner!

Here are pictures from the morning's activities... Is Rheagan ready or what? (The older kids have already started their run.)

This is 3/4 of the run complete...

Now it was time for the bike ride...

Sure hope this young man won the bike they were giving away!

Headed to the pool!

A great finish!!

Happy Easter

We have spent time with family and friends the past few days. Mike and his brother went to the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Ga. on Thursday and Friday and had a wonderful time. It is such an experience.

On Friday, we dyed eggs and decorated them for the Easter Egg tree. We have been adding eggs to this tree for 30+ years. Karen, Rheagan and I went to see Hannah Montana, The Movie ...take tissues with you. Later, Rheagan and I decorated cookies that we made. Pictures from this day are on Karen's camera!

On Saturday, we went next door and had an egg hunt with neighbors and their cousins...such fun!

Heidi and her children were in visiting and it always good to see them.

Today, we had a great day at church and then lunch at the Country Club. The costumed and really bunny added a lot to the day.

Tripp and Rheagan came over and found some eggs in our backyard.

Then it was time for another neighborhood egg hunt and good visiting.
