1. We celebrated Z's seventh year in high style this weekend, complete with a unicorn-themed birthday bash. When she woke up on her actual birthday, we filled her room with balloons, let her open her presents from family and then went out to breakfast. It was a great weekend for everyone.
2. Also in honor of the birthday girl, we took the kids to their first Detroit Tigers game. We got club-level seats so we could enjoy air conditioning and prime seating. It was money well-spent because we could go in and out. I also felt like all the lines were shorter and the bathrooms were cleaner. If only the Tigers won, it would've been a perfect day. The highlight for the kids was running the bases and giving Southpaw a high five.
3. We're a little less than six weeks away from Ironman Wisconsin and let me tell you, I am concerned. I haven't swam much at all. I've done a century, and can bust out a half marathon on the treadmill any given Sunday. I'm also pretty religious about my twice-a-week Crossfit game. I'm not doing as much this season as I did for my first IMWI, but I also have some big training days coming up. We have a long swim event, which I think we'll predicate with a long brick day. We're looking at a century this weekend, and we have one more weekend in late August to do with what we wish. Any recommendations?
