Alex: "Don't worry daddy, I'm here if you need anything."

and the winner is.... ALEX?!?

This just in. The video finish from the Alcatraz Tri last weekend shows convincing evidence that Alex did in fact beat Mommy in the race. Watch closely at about the 20 second mark, and you'll see a determined little runner beat mommy across the finish line.

Also, note that if you want to watch a higher quality version of this, watch this video on YouTube directly. You can also see some annotations on the YouTube site that don't seem to show up on the embedded version.

No one has ever survived this swim

I think I've heard at least 3 or 4 people respond to the idea of swimming from Alcatraz in the San Francisco Bay back to the marina in this way. To which Krista has been heard to respond, "Yes, thousands of people die every year in this race!" Not only did Krista survive, but she nailed the swim, doing it in a little over 33 minutes.

She finished the race today in a blazing 3 hours and 11 minutes, mostly thanks to her cheering squad.

We are all VERY proud of you Mommy!

Unemployed parents?

Now that Alex has taken over the task of reading books to Reese (and trust me, Reese LOVES to read books), its hard to say what we will do with all of our free time?
