This is why we CrossFit

[caption id="attachment_1368" align="aligncenter" width="660"] This is Rich Froning, this is not me.[/caption] This past weekend was the Reebok CrossFit Games, and man were they exciting! Well, they were exciting for me, my wife and those of us who really enjoy doing CrossFit. I don't think I can call it a sport, but that doesn't make it or the athletes any less spectacular.  Lets go back one year. I had been doing P90x steadily for roughly 75 days. Its a 90 day program (hence the name), and was determined to finish. On day 78 I had a car accident... how did I not post about that?! An accident that left me…

Day two, not so good.

 Jess and I have very high expectations of those that watch over our children. Whether its a baby sitter or a school, we want the best for them. Seeing as Lane is our youngest, we were extra cautious when sending him off to school. We didn't want it to be just a daycare, where he's watched over by people who are just kinda going through the motions. We needed him to be in an enriched environment where he could learn and grow and be cared for as if it were us there. Well, at the end of day one, Jess went to get Lane and on the way out his…

Lane’s first day of school! EEK!

[caption id="attachment_1348" align="alignleft" width="528"] Our little boy's all grown up![/caption] It seems like only yesterday we were teaching this little guy to roll over. Then we blinked and he was walking. Now he's climbing on top of the tables, saying words, swimming (sort of), and in school! Wait... what? He's in school?! Yep, we dropped off our little baby for his first day of "big boy school" today! Whoa! Its so very hard to believe that its been 18 months already. He seems so little, yet so very big! Time has flown by and our wings have ever expanded to support Jr. BLT, but its time for him to branch…

What happens in Vegas…

Last time I made a post with the same title, it ended up like this. Let's just say, that this time around it was a completely different experience. My friend Gene turned 40 this year and he wanted to do a big throw down in Vegas. I mean, what better place to celebrate getting old, than a city full of young people who have a complete and total disregard for what they do to their bodies! Jess and I were totally game for a weekend filled with crazy entertainment and no kiddos to wake us up in the morning or need a diaper changed or ask how to make a grilled…

Landscapestravaganza part 1!

This weekend I kicked off the whirlwind of landscaping thats about to take place in our back yard, by clearing some of the trees and such. I figured I might as well make a video out of it. This is the first of several more to come! We have big plans that include grass, an area for a fire pit, a retaining wall, some stone steps, and potentially a treehouse for the boys. Well, that last one might be a bit further down the road, but you never know. [youtube width="853" height="480"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHenSf1lEJk[/youtube] I wouldn't consider it a "lot" work, but then again I tend to over exert myself when doing…

Disney Cruise!

Oh where to begin? It all started like, back in November 2012 or something. Jess and I both decided that we wanted to take our family on a Disney Cruise! Yes, you read that right... a Disney Cruise! Well, to some it might not seem that extravagant, but to us it was an astronimical adventure. We did our research (minimaly) and within no time, the thing was booked. The actual cruise wouldn't happen until the first of June 2013, but with this sort of thing, you gotta plan in advance. (more…)
