I know I know

I have been really bad at blogging! I keep meaning to blog about something and then I get busy and forget. So much has been going on here! Thank goodness we have cameras or else I would never remember what we have be doing the past couple months. Here are some pictures of a Triathlon Preston did a couple months ago.

He came in 18th place. I think he was really hoping to be in the top 10 but 18th is pretty good for someone who wasn't able to train much for it. Evie and I were so proud of him!

I don't think that I mentioned that Preston started a new job about a month ago. He is now an Executive Officer which is pretty much a secretary to a General. It's longer hours and a lot of work. Most of the time he doesn't get home till after 8 which is usually after Evie has already gone to bed. Needless to say it is going to be a very long year for all of us but it's only a year long position and we will all make the best of our weekends together!

A couple weekends ago we were able to go visit some of our friends that live in Boston. We were only there for 3 days but we had a lot of fun. Preston went on a crazy hike to the summit of Mt. Washington. They had to come back early because the weather was so cold. His hands were so swollen from the cold weather! It's hard to explain how gross they looked and a picture doesn't do enough justice for them. I'm happy to say that his hands are back to normal size now and despite him being sure he got stretch marks from how big they got, he didn't and they are fine!
We went to down town Boston the last day we were there. It was so fun. We had some awesome pizza and then just walked around. There were cute little carousels everywhere so we let the girls ride one. Evie LOVED it. She liked sitting on the horse but wanted off until it started moving then she had so much fun! She is so cute! Nicole and I even went to a little Carnival they had on base there one night. There were lots of kids rides, music and food. The weather wasn't great but we made the most of it and were glad we went. I'm sad I didn't get any pictures there. We had a really good time in Boston and were glad we made it out there since our friends are leaving for Germany in a couple months. We will have to go there to see them next time I guess.

These are 3 cute little girls!!

 Ok.. this post is long enough so I am going to cut it off. We threw Evies birthday party yesterday so I will post about that sometime this week!! Probably after her real birthday which is on Thursday. I can't believe she is going to be 1 already. She is walking now too! It all happens so fast! Here is just a cute little video of her that I took the other day and a cute picture. We love this girl to death!
