The Dog Days of Summer

So I guess it's not technically summer yet, but we don't ever get much of a spring anyway. Here's what we've been up to...

Lots of outside time...

Daddy makes fun pancakes including monkeys, dinosaurs, tanks and F22 Raptors (sorry no pics of the army vehicles :0(

Eating watermelon after some pool time

And yes...a dog. It came to visit us for about an hour and before I could find it's owner, the kids let it out and it ran away again. The kids were bummed.

Holy S#*! ...Wheres the rest of ya'?

In January 16 i had a doctors apointment and the nurse asked me "do you know how much you weigh?" 256-260 i replied. well lets weigh you to make sure.... 292 pounds! holy crap. well the next day i jumped on a tread mill only to find how bad the situation had gotten by not being able to complete a 12 minute mile. So I worked... my ass off. Set a goal to complete Pat's Run which was april 16th 3 months after that dr.'s apointment. It's a 4.2 mile run to honor Pat Tillman and i wanted to do it in 42 minutes, 10 minute miles. I set monthly weight loss goals...that i destroyed. As of this morning i weigh 226 pounds. Yes thats right 65 pounds in 3 months. Prompting a buddy who i hadent seen since December to say Holy S#*! ...Wheres the rest of ya'? Well Pats run was yesterday and it was great. Inspirational, religeous experience, humbling, appreciative, motivating, victory, you name it I felt it. The start, the race, the finish, the prayer at the 34 yard line. The end result:

Name: James Hunt #5482
Lives: Scottsdale, AZ
Age: 31 Gender: M
Distance 4.2M
Clock Time 37:17
Pace 8:53 a mile

Rock on boys and girls. start small and you will do big things. bigger than you ever imagined.

Luke Air Force Show

Here we are at the Air Show at Luke Air Force Base. The kids had a blast! It's really cute to hear your four year old say, "Look! A F22 Raptor!" They enjoyed snow cones that were the size of their heads and got to climb into a SWAT vehicle.
