Tiny Triathlete!


It is a glorious 3some!
Being a fellow triathlete I will admit I may have had something to do with encouraging the sign up.
But I assure you there was no forcing it.

Our little man did his first official (and crazy well organized) tri race this weekend.
Of course Fernie did an unreal job at organizing this event.  WOW!!!

Way to go Beanie!!  I'm crazy proud of you buddy.
You are officially a TRIATHLETE!!  You made it look so easy, like you'd done this before.
Can I get a WHOOT WHOOT!!!!


A few…  a LOT of images from the big event!

He said without hesitation that his favorite part was the RUN.  YEAHHHHHHHHHHH!
My boy.
Congratulations Andrew.
We are so crazy proud of you Buddy!

Picture day!

I made him wear a scrunchy shirt… aka dress shirt with a collar.
He took it off as soon as he got home.

Kindergarten photo day a success.
Look at that hazel eyed smile.  Isn't he a delight!

This week has been oh so challenging.
I'm tired and it is only Tuesday.
But with all the busy comes opportunity and adventures to be grateful for.

A little bit of pretty for you this week.

Thai Peanut Chicken Stirfry

… in a crockpot!

Thai Peanut Chicken Stir Fry

3 skinless chicken breasts
1 small red bell pepper, sliced
1 small yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 small onion sliced
½ cup natural chunky peanut butter
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
½ cup chicken broth
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tbsp of honey
1/4 cup crushed peanuts for topping
1/4 cup cilantro, diced

*  Place peppers and onion at the bottom of the crockpot in one layer (this helps stop the chicken from drying out). 
*  Place the chicken breasts on top.
* Mix together peanut butter, lime juice, chicken broth, soy sauce, and honey. Pour sauce over chicken leaving 2-3 tbsp for dressing when served.
Cook for approximately 5 hours on LOW.  
* Shred chicken with two forks. Cover and continue cooking for the 10-15mins or until ready to serve.
* Serve over rice, noodles, or in lettuce wraps!
* Sprinkle with Cilantro, crushed peanuts, carrots, sprouts… whatever makes you happy.
** This recipe is a no fuss, no brainer.  Put it in you monthly rotation.  SO GOOD!! **

Lake life.

Building with sand is indeed a right of passage for kiddos.  
Simple sign of freedom.

Sometimes the best part of a lake swim is rinsing off in a warm shower.

Hot Tubs.

The most handsome hot tubers you have ever seen…

Andrew suggested we were really just missing Papa (Papa is the biggest hot-tubber fan we know).

Water Babies. We swim.

Being comfortable, cautious, and enjoying being in and around the water is a life skill.
No way around that.

As a family we spend a huge amount of time swimming for fun.
It doesn't have to be scary…  but it does have to be respected.

We love to swim.
