Well, after a couple of months off, I am back with Our Project 10 and *surprise* it has swimming in it!! Haylee and I had a great opportunity to fly up to Des Moines, Iowa together. She qualified for the IronKids US Championships last year but was unable to go. She got an invitation to compete this year so we thought it would be a cool opportunity and I thought it would be a great way to spend some time with Haylee…just the two of us. She got to miss school on Friday and we flew up to Iowa. We learned what a pain lugging your bike on a plane was but everyone in Iowa was soooo nice (I shouldn’t be so surprised but seriously, nicest people I have ever met!) that we had no issues getting it set back up and ready for the race. We stayed in a cute little hotel in downtown Des Moines and got a chance to walk around the area. After the race, we went to a movie over by Drake University in the cutest old school theater…one screen, husband and wife taking tickets and selling popcorn, no previews. Then we finished the day with a nap and a late night dinner at a really great italian restaurant in downtown Des Moines. It was a really nice weekend and one that I hope Haylee remembers for a long time to come.
Now check out what my friend Efi way over in Greece is doing…her pictures are always fabulous!
