Well, we did it. We finished our very first triathlon! Thank you Laura for committing to do the triathlon with me! Have you ever heard the expression, "I feel like I've been hit by a mack truck"? Well, that's how I feel right now! The swimming was SO much harder than I ever imagined. People were kicking lake water right in my mouth. A few times I had to stop and cough, gag and everything else to get the water out. The biking was hard too. There were some pretty big hills on the course. Then came the running...running is not my thing. I hooked up with this girl named Kristi and we were buds for pretty much the whole 3 miles. We finished together! It was a great experience and accomplishment but I don't see any triathlons in my near future.

Last night we went to the Luis Palau Heartland Festival! It was extremely hot but we had a great time! The best part was seeing Mandisa, TobyMac, Building 429, Salvador and KJ-52 all for free!! Fischer did not like Larry the Cucumber! Luis was a good speaker too, very straightforward with the young people. The Omaha Police said there was 40-50,000 people and they were only expecting 20-30,000.

We went to a cookout last night and Fischer had a blast! Here are some pics of him swimming with his friends.

It's hard to see, but above is a picture of someone who could not afford a boat!

Ok, so my aunt Sheree convinced us to go out to this crazy neighborhood and watch fireworks! I know I said this last year, but these people in Nebraska are crazy about their fireworks! I didn't want to go because last year I was so scared, however Franklin really enjoys it and so I went. I was a nervous wreck the entire time...watching 6 teenage boys with brains that haven't fully developed(sorry but it's a fact) light fireworks was more than I could handle. I am not looking forward to the day when Fischer wants to light fireworks! Anyway, here are a few pics from the evening.
