Tea and Triathlons.

So, I first apologize for not blogging in awhile. I have been swamped with stuff around here and haven't had time to load pictures or write blogs. So, I am about a week behind, which you will see when you get about three blogs in one day while I try to catch up.

Last weekend we headed up to Chattanooga. Crickett, my sister-in-law, threw Lydia her First Tea Party! It was wonderful. Tons of people came to meet Lydia and enjoy some time together. Lydia behaved quite well, letting everyone hold her, and hardly crying at all. Catherine loved the little tea cups and even enjoyed "dining" with one of her friends, Christa, that we don't get to see very often!!

After the tea party, we enjoyed playing in the pool. Catherine is quite the water bug. She will put the swimmies on and just go! She just kicks her feet and wiggles everywhere. Harbin did better in the pool this time too. We were able to convince him that he could touch in the shallow end. Although very hesitant, he tried it and realized that he could walk from one side of the shallow end to the other.

Sunday, we all loaded up very early and went to downtown Chattanooga for the Sportsbarn Triathlon. The entire Tinney family participated in this one!! Scott, Bo, Skylar and Alex did the entire event, while Crickett, Chuck and Melissa, and a friend of theirs, raced in a relay. Everyone did awesome!! This was the shortest tri that Scott has done and he finished in about 48 minutes- it was a 400 meter swim, 8.2 mile bike, and 2 mile run. He placed 8th in his age division out of 41 guys. The kids and I loved to cheer everyone on and we are so proud of them all!!

Well, that concludes our activities in Chattanooga a few weekends ago- stay tuned for a new blog about this past weekend!

The mom.
