Summer 2009....A Photo Montage

It's a long one!

We did.....
Misc outdoor stuff:
Kyleigh had her first solo sliding experience
And her Daddy did too ;) (I told Bry no one would ever see this picture...but I couldn't resist - sorry hun)

Kyleigh was tuckered out by the end of the day
Played much fun - even though I'm not very good.

Dragged my sisters-in-law to go hiking with me (all but Jen could make it this time). We hiked Table Mountain (aka table rock) had been 10 years since I did it last and I forgot how tiring the last stretch can be!!
Here's the moose we almost came face to face with, as we came around a corner he was headed straight for us on the trail. We had to climb up some rocks to get around him. I took this picture and immediately afterwards he looked at me and started huffing.....I got a little nervous and had to hide behind a boulder :)

This was on the ridge just before we started back down the switch backs into the valley/bowl below.

Bryan competed in a national DOE shooting competition in Albequerque NM with his team and they did very well!

I made it through my first (sprint) triathlon - I never thought I would do one of those but am glad I did.
I'm somewhere out in the crowd of swimmers :)

Running to the bike transition area

And no, it didn't take me 3 1/2 hours to finish. My actual time was 2 hrs 15 min (there were 2-3 other groups who started before us and the clock started with them)

An Update to my Garden

Remember my pathetic garden? Soooo, after finding out that the starter planter shells are not as biodegradeable as indicated on the packaging I replanted my poor little veggie plants without the biodegrading pots and this is what has become of them........
Now hopefully we don't get a frost for a little while so they have time to ripen!
