A FLAMMILY Affair

All 6 of the Flamm boys decided to do a triathlon this year; the ah famous SPUD MAN held in Burley, Idaho. Crazy boys!
We drove 3 hours Friday and the guys got all their gear set up for the next morning. We ate a fabulous carb loading dinner that night of cafeteria spaghetti, baked potato, roll, and green beans; vomit. Trust me, I don't need a carb load at this point in my life!
That night we hung out a bit and I got to watch some first hand sibling rivalry unfold as two of the brothers went at it in a good ol' fashion wrestling match leaving one with a small, black eye. BOYS!
It really was awesome to have the whole gang together (minus Michele and Bryce; we missed you!). Adam just got home from his mission a few weeks ago and Cody flew in from Arizona. It was awesome! We even had Andy's bride to be Kim with us, and Adam's cute girl friend, Elizabeth joined the party as well.
Notice the sun just coming up...the racers had to be there about 5:45 and we joined them around 6 am. I don't see that time of day very often and I like it that way!

This is Brady's oldest brother Bryan and his cute family. Kim, Bryan, Hannah, Abbie, and Lincoln


Kim (she'll be the newest member of the clan on SEPTEMBER 12!) and Andy

Got to love Grandpa Jeff!


The fans telling Grandpa Jeff good luck.

The cute girl holding Millie is Elizabeth, she's Adam's girlfriend.
They're in there somewhere.

Jeff bought them all matching jerseys so we as the cheerleaders could find them easily in a crowd. It was GENIUS! It really made it so much easier for us to spot one of them coming.

Second row, Brady on the bike, Cody on the bike, (top small pic, Adam crossing the finish in style, bottom small, Bryan running in), Jeff giving us a smile as he finishes the Spud Man.

GO BOYS!

Andy was the champ of our group finishing in 2 hours and 12 minutes!


Brady right after he ran in.


The brothers: Andy, Cody, Bryan, Adam, Brady

After a 1 mile swim, 24 miles on a bike, and a 6 mile run, they are not only still standing, but cracking jokes. I think I would have passed out!


# 1681 has a mighty fine behind if I do say so myself!

All 6 of the guys after finishing: Adam, Cody, Jeff, Brady, Bryan, Andy



And last but not least, we got a picture of the whole gang. I'm the giant pregnant lady on the far left! Me, Brady, Bryan, Andy, Kim, Cody, Jeff, Adam, Elizabeth, Kim,

We had an awesome weekend and I am so proud of all the guys. They did GREAT!

Wow, all of the Flamm boys look so much alike! They look great out there, what a fun thing to do as a family.

About Millie's arm; she fell up some cement stairs at swim lessons last Wednesday and she was really babying it and wouldn't let us touch it. I took her to the doctor to have it checked out and they didn't see any breaks, but because she is so little they are afraid it might be a growth plate or something so they wrapped it all up. We go back on Friday when they'll re x-ray. Today she is doing a lot better and I think it's going to be just fine!
