Isn't our little boy the cutest?

Sorry about filming this sideways. I guess I know better now huh?

I'm not very good at this blog thing. This should be the first video of the series obviously. She is swimming in the Snake river. She did very good on the swim and came out pretty early in her wave.

Betsy, Lucas and Great Grandma Wright (Betsys mothers mother), in Sandy, Utah at Betsys parents house.
This was at the Scottish Highland games just south of Salt Lake. Betsys uncle on your right is really into it as you can tell. It was fun going there. From your left to your right are Jeff (Bruces long time friend), Cliff (Betsys uncle), Ann and Barb (Betsys aunt), and Bruce.
Betsy getting ready for her 1/2 Ironman (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, 13 mile run) on June 2 in Burley, Idaho. She did a great job. To think that she spent 9 of the last 12 months pregnant and then to start training so soon after having Lucas. She did great. So many people thought she was stupid for doing it and said she couldn't or shouldn't. But she did and did great. It certainly wasn't easy but she was glad she did it. Betsys mom Joyce came up to cheer and help w/ Lucas. I was on a relay team and did the 13 mile run leg of the race. It was miserable (about 95 degrees and no shade on the run).
Betsy and our friend Eugena (her and her husband our friends of ours that we met in Kirksville, her husband Seth is a year ahead of me). Eugena did great. Unfortunately Eugenas bike tire rolled off her wheel as she went into the last turn going into the bike/run transition. Luckily she wasn't seriously hurt, but she had pretty bad road rash and was in enough pain that she couldn't go on. We love you Eugena.
This is my attempt at trying to take pictures of Betsy on the bike ride. She is in the back by the person in the red jersey

Here is our friend Seth who did the relay w/ me. He did great on the bike. Thanks Seth!

Here is our little man. Doesn't he look big?
Isn't he cute? We sure think so.
We stopped at Jorys grandparents house in Ft. Collins, CO. These are Jorys moms parents. It was so fun seeing them w/ little Lucas. Hopefully we can spend more time w/ them some time.
