First off, Spencer recently competed in a sprint triathlon. It was a half-mile swim, a 5k run, and a 21 mile bike ride. He came in at just under 2 hours. Spence even talked my little brother, Mackenzie, into doing it with him and they trained together leading up to the Tri. Mack did really well too, especially considering it was his first triathlon. We're really proud of both of them! Sorry we didn't get any pictures of Mack. Our camera was on the fritz (as usual) and wasn't taking pictures as well as I had hoped.
Spence post-Tri (gotta love the sweaty helmet hair)-he wanted me to note that he was wheeling his bike right then, so he doesn't normally hunch funny ;)
Ezra loved watching from the sidelines. It didn't matter who it was coming through the finish line, he was there cheering for them every step of the way.
Georgia, on the other hand, spent most of her time running around, looking mowgli-ish. It was all we could do to keep her off the road where all the bikers were :P
Also, as I alluded previously, our camera finally died...well, it still *kinda* worked, but only actually took pictures half the time. With the new baby arriving sometime within the next month, we figured that a brand-spankin' new camera was ripe for the pickin'. Introducing...our new Sony Cyber-shot W150. It comes with all these fancy features...but I'm just glad it's pretty quick on the draw. With two (almost three) very little ones running around, I need a camera that actually takes the picture when I want it to.
With the weather FINALLY cooling off a bit (we were in the mid-80s all last week, but I'm hoping that some storms due for the next couple of days will have us in the 70s), we decided it was time to head to the pumpkin patch. For all ya'll locals, it's a place out in Perkins called Grider Farm. My mom, my sister Stephanie, and her kids came along for the ride. It was beautiful weather and we had loads of fun picking out five pumpkins (of varying sizes) for only $15! I organized them on our porch with a few other cute fall/Halloween crafts. I'll have to post a picture soon.
It hasn't rained for a while, so the dust was an inch thick. Georgia, who is particularly low to the ground, got the worst of it.

As I'm nearly to the end of my pregnancy, I figured I'd post at least one more belly picture. I'm exactly 35 weeks and 2 days. It's not the cutest as I took it at like 9:15 tonight, but I knew if I didn't do it now, it just wouldn't happen. To my sisters who'll know what I'm talking about, please excuse the belly/butt issue-by this point in time in my pregnancy, it's the least of my body image issues. I'm carrying quite a bit lower this time than I did with my last two pregnancies (I partially dropped at about 32 weeks). I'm also little wider than I was with Georgia, but more compact than I was with Ezra. We'll see if the baby comes on the same schedule as the other two did (about a week early) or if she continues to do her own thing.
Hope you enjoyed the update. Have a fabulous day and thanks for sticking with me!
