This past Sunday we had a fun random family get-together at Linnea and Cam's. Side note: For those who have seen Linnea's update on the new kitchen on their blog the pictures really don't do it justice. It looks amazing in person and I still can't believe that's their kitchen now! Ok, anyways, we made homemade personal pizza's using the pre-made pizza dough from Trader Joe's. It's really good. I recommend them and they are only 99 cents. Each bag made 3 pizzas. Not a bad deal. We also played Trivial Pursuit boys against girls. Even with our mom on our team the boys won. Oh well. We'll get them next time!

The funny thing about this pizza is that it was made by the last person you would think to make a heart shaped pizza and that was Eric!

So yesterday, Sunday August 19th, I completed my second Sprint Triathlon. Who am I???? When did I become this tri-athlete??? Seriously?? I love that I have something that I can continue to set higher goals and feel great about myself when I achieve them. Who knew I had this kind of motivation. My number one goal, whenever I participate in things like this, is to not stop. I got that one down. My second goal was to improve my time. The first triathlon I had trained for but this second one was a different story. Despite my lack of training I was able to improve my time by over 5 minutes!!

I also love that I have been able to participate in these triathlons with my family. Who knew the John Wallgren family were such tri-athletes! The first one I did was with my mom and sister, Linnea (see early post) and the second one was with my mom again and my dad. They both did great!! Below are some pictures (thanks Linnea) and a big THANK YOU to Linnea and Scott for cheering us on. It was great to have you there supporting us!!!
