UCSC Grand Prix

It has been a busy weekend. Jill and Peirce were both swimming in the UCSC Grand Prix Friday and Saturday. 

Jill is trying to get a Western time. She is awfully close! ......but still chasing. On Saturday she took 3 seconds off her 100 breast though!  

I liked this results sheet.....Jill ranked amongst all the girls from the university.

Peirce took all sorts of time off his races: 13 seconds off 200 breast, 3 seconds off 50 fly and best of all, two seconds off his 200 IM, which means he got his MQT! Yea!! On Saturday he got two more personal bests. He took 4 seconds off 100 breast and 100 back. He also swam 400 free, but didn't get a PB in that. We should have fed him again, I guess.

Mr. MQT!

Silly Jilly.

...check out those quads though!

I have now walked more this month than any month last year.  

On to bigger and better things!

I have to admit, I am pretty tired. It is been rough going in this snow!

New Walking Goals

And thus we see why I didn't lose any weight in 2014! (That's the way I phrase it without saying I actually gained weight....ugh!). Doesn't matter that this is in miles rather than kilometres. The important number is: I burned one pound of fat. Ugh!

My goal this year is to walk 100 km every month.

That Girl Can Bake!

Cookies made in muffin tins, lined with chocolate and milk poured in. All learned from You Tube!

Maybe two was too many.

Peirce's Photography

Peirce can do amazing things with his phone. He has become quite the photographer.

After he got a new journal this week he took this

A new angle on the Christmas tree

After the youth gift exchange

I have a friend who's makes printed material for the Canadian military and she saw his Lego pictures and asked him if they could use one for one of their flyers....this was the result.
