End of a great week.....

What a difference a week makes!

Today is my big Sis's bday....Happy B.Day Sis. Well Friday, when I started this post, it was her bday. Sorry we cannot be with her to celebrate but we sent a much wanted gift and all our good love and wishes. Looking forward to next weekend with K,J, M and W are in town and we get some good family time. Miss my neices and look forward to seeing everyone soon.

Ended up with a great training week. Did a terrific 3 hour ride on Thursday and a great swim Friday AM and then another 3 hour ride on Fiesta Island. Jen, E and I worked it hard- pushed it and felt great. I am feeling a lot more confident about Cali 70.3 after Friday's work out. I did not lose any strength and I think the forced rest may have been an okay thing.

JD had his first HS Lax game at Bonita Vista and they won! HS is a lot different, more aggressive and a much faster game. Fun to see and he played reasonably well.

Picked up D/K from their 5 week trip to Australia/Hong Kong/Japan and although weary, sounded like a wonderful trip. Will be nice to have them back in town.

Last night had such an enjoyable evening at my Mom's house with a long time friend of the family, Bob Herbold. My parents and the Herbolds spent so much time together and we did all kinds of crazy things together as families. From the wonderful ski trips to Breckenridge, jeeping in the summer in CO and of course riding on the toboggan behind the Jeepster at Christmas time on Dallas Ct and in the fields by the house. Great childhood memories and such a nice time connecting the Bob (Big Mouse) on an adult level.

Hancock's arrive in SD tomorrow. Hooray- will be fun to see them some more while at their rented house in La Jolla, same house as last year- Hope to see them for dinner Sunday night.
