~Spring Break~


A Spring Break Pictorial
_______________________


















____________________

-Didn't win the Kona Lottery, but I'm surprisingly relieved.  Honestly, my heads not in the game this year. I'll keep throwing my name into the Kona lottery hat each year and see what happens.    I just want to focus on smaller races but I'm having thoughts about Lake Placid 2010.  I want IronMan, but am always wondering when I'll have the time in to train for that monster.  One day maybe this girls name will appear on the list.
Congratulations!

Come on down and do IMFL. It is the easiest IM out there plus I am going to start a tradition of IronBob's Wednesday night blog fest party the week of at the condo I rent next to the venue.

Jess said...

Great pics! Looks like it was a fun break.

Awwww, sweet looking family, sister!

And that first picture is great for many reasons, not the least of which is I can use it if I ever need a good shot of your head to put on someone else's body!

Which I just may do, sister!

Come on - you KNOW you want it!

Don't bother taking the pic down - I ALREADY HAVE A COPY!1!

Hahahahahaha!

But seriously, nice family pix.

Less seriously - it's coming sister - but YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHEN!1! Hahahahaha!1!

Great photos! Awww, looks like your family has high-spirited, active fun together-- irresistable smiles (in the sense that I'm smiling back at my computer screen-- gotta love when that happens). Have a great weekend!

Wes said...

I want to be your child :-)

Ironman is something to be conquered. Not feared. I too will start signing up for Kona. May the lottery gods smile on us...

Stuart said...

Now that's what SB is all about! Fun times!

Gotta Run said...

I want IM as well but the more time that Scott is not working the more I realize that the Beach2Battleship Ironman in November will not happen this year.

Surprised that I am not tatally bummed.. but I am not. Having to much fun to stop and be super depressed about it.

2010 will be our year girl!!!

Love your pictures!! Too much fun!!

Aaron Bull said...

That's a good looking family. I'm beyond happy to be a part of it.

X-Country2 said...

Great pics. You should frame those for when you need a little spring pick me up.

I loved the Spring Break pictures but is the person in the last picture labeled 'Coach' part of your family? I hope not because I got a little nauseous looking at it.

The authorities at Google said...

Ms. Tipton -

You have already been warned once and this is our second warning. If you post pictures of that scary looking person labelled 'Coach' one more time, we will rescind your blogging priveleges. There have been numerous complaints of people becoming violently ill and small children becoming frightened by it.

Kevin said...

Looks like a fun time was had by all

raulgonemobile said...

Nice pics! That looks like a good time.

Sorry about the lottery, but it's awesome that you can even consider putting your name in that ring

Chris said...

Wow! Looks like you guys had an awesome break. I love the fam pics. I can tell from the looks on your kids faces that you must be pretty "cool" parents! (at least for noe ;-) )

I guess we should enjoy being cool while it lasts. :-)

Love all those Spring Break shots!

And it seems that the people who get a slot via the lottery always say they got it when they least expected it. So if you sign up for IM Lake Placid, that'll probably be the year you get in :-)
