Ben's race

We went to Callaway Gardens for father's day weekend for Ben to do a triathalon and for a mini vacation. We really had a good time! We Got there and on day one went into the beach side of callway and hung out in the water and on the beach. The boys all did the giant water slide and we rode the train. Gavin stayed with grammy so we got to do some "big kid" things on this trip. All the firefighters who did the trithalon had their families down there are we all hung out together. We had rooms that were close and hung out during the day and did meals together. We ate dinner together the first night at a seafood buffet. That was a disaster. Ethan puked and Aiden was so overly tired he cried the whole time, the joys of motherhood!! But the second day we went to the wild animal safari, butterfly house, pool and a counrty cooking place for dinner. At dinner we celebrated Ethan's fourth B-day since it was the next day. We sang to him and let him open his present. His birthday party is not til the next weekend, but we had to celebrate his birthday! he was happy!! It is so hard to believe it has been 4 yrs since I had him.....what a joy he has added to our lives! Then on Sunday Ben had he triathalon. He did great! 1 hr and 2 mins. Not bad for no training since last year. with everything going on with Gavin it got put on the back burner and he didn't get to train much, but he did great! The boys and I watched him swim and run but missed the bike. While he was biking I had to give a 60 yr old man CPR on the beach! He either got pushed under during his swim or had a heart attack and the lifeguards pulled him out of the water. When they got him to the beach everyone was just standing there so I ran down there and gave him CPR. We got him back and he went to the hospital. He was talking when he left and had no pulse or breathing when I found him....needless to say, I missed the biking! All the guys did great and the kids too! 2 of the kids from the families did it too and the 14 yr old had the best time out of all of them, Ha! We had fun and really enjoyed getting away and spending time building relationships with the fire crew!

I took lots of pics and will get them up soon.... Having difficulties right now!
