On Labor Day weekend we drove to Austin so Deven could compete in his first Olympic distance triathlon. It began with a 1.5 kilometer (.93 mile) swim, followed by 40 kilometers (24.8 miles) of bicycling and concluded with a 10 kilometer (6.2 mile) run. And HE DID IT!
Instead of chasing Deven around, the kids and I hung out at the transition area waiting for a chance to cheer him on. Off with the helmet... on with the shoes... "go Dad!"
Just as a side note; while enjoying the beautiful weather of Austin and waiting for Deven to finish the Tri, Trenton through up all over me on a park bench and Allison had a poop explosion. Other than that it was a perfect day.
Deven and I have been wanting to go to The Salt Lick restaurant for a long time. It was brought to our attention by a show called Man vs. Food. The parking lot for this restaurant (in the middle of no where) looked like a parking lot for an amusement park. Luckily we only waited an hour to eat some famous BBQ.
We were happy to have the Newman family there to enjoy it with!
On our way home we had to detour around the wild fires that popped up all over Texas this year. It was so sad to see this!
