Ella's 4th Birthday Party

Ella had a fantastic time at her birthday party thanks to her mom's great planning abilities. Festivities included her favorites: a jumping castle, a piñata, cake, balloons, and good friends.

This was our first successful piñata ever. Every kid got a several chances to give the beast (a pink unicorn) a good whack. In the end, the rope attachment failed and the poor thing dropped the ground where it was immediately set upon by ravenous children. A cascade of multi-colored jellybeans exploded from the color-tissue festooned cacass to the delight of all.

Now that Ella is officially a 'big girl' at 4 years old, she now looks after her little brother Ethan to keep him from getting into things. This has its pros and cons...! :)

Paul finishes Reston Olympic Triathlon

Finally fulfilling my long time goal...I completed my first Olympic distance triathlon this September in under 3 hours.

The distances were 1.5k swim, 40k cycle, and a 10k run.

Previously, I had completed shorter sprint distances, so this was a real milestone for me. With the inspiration of one under my belt, I'm setting my sites on next year's tri-calendar to improve my performance.

Welcome to the Kavitz family blog. As you know, we've been struggling to keep our web site up to date. While we have a world of excuses, and none very good, it basically comes down to time. We thought that with this tool, it should be easier to post our latest and greatest. Let us know what you think.

Here is a photo of the local stream down the hill, Difficult Run, where Ella enjoys catching crawdads.
