Well I made it up the canyon and to the race in record time and luckily there was a tent with guys helping out with bikes. I gave them my new tire and they put it on for me. I grabbed my packet, met my sister and we started.
After the first 12 miles or so, my back tire felt wobbly. I got off and sure enough, it was flat AGAIN! I couldn't believe my bad luck. A truck drove by about 30 seconds after and picked up me and my bike and took me to the feed stop, which was only about a mile or so away from where we were.
Once again, there was a tent set-up and they had a tire they gave me and the nice guy fixed my 2nd flat!
Last week the fair was in our county! They advertised a free princess show and I knew that Ali would love it (Molly is in school or she would have too!).
They even got to milk a cow! We went to the rodeo on Saturday night as well. We stayed until 9:30 pm when Ali had fallen asleep on Justin's lap and we figured we should get our kids to bed. Too bad we missed the bull riding. But we did see mutton busting, kids chasing cows with money on them, barrel racing, calf roping and a few other events.
Ali got her boot off! We went in last week and got new X-rays and we could see where she was growing new bone. That was the green light so we could take her boot off!
We went to Star Valley a couple of weekends ago for a family reunion. We arrived on a Thursday night before most of Justin's siblings arrived. On Friday, Molly was anxious to pull her tooth out!
This first pic is a before shot.
After! Nice gap :) We tied floss around her tooth and Justin yanked it out! We have a video and it's pretty funny. Molly looks terrified and it hurts for a second, but then she's fine. The tooth fairy found her and she got $2! The WY tooth fairy pays big!
Uncle David brought the karaoke machine up. Everyone had a fun time singing their hearts out!
We had a fun time! We ate yummy food and enjoyed great company.

We went to the S&S Railroad for a train ride last weekend. It's just a few minutes away from us. It's only open the first Saturday of the month in the summer from 10 am to 4 pm, so it can be tricky to go.
I've only been once before and that was when my nephew Mitt turned 1. And now he's 10 :)
We rode the short train and it was a 20 minute ride. They have 2 larger trains, but this one was the most fun and the longest ride. It was so fun! They have done such a good job. There are tunnels, waterfalls, train cars to see, farm equipment, etc.

This was my 3rd year doing this tri. And I would probably say that I was least prepared this time around. But that's ok! It just meant I was tired quicker :) The race vibe is pretty fun and encouraging though. I think this is the perfect race for people doing their first, or those of us who aren't into long distances ;)
