Mike was in "the spudman triathlon" this morning, he had to do a 1.5K swim, 40K bike ride, and 10k run. Here are some of the highlights from the race, (you can click on any of the pictures to zoom in and get a better view of Mike). The first picture is before the race and Mike is standing at the exit for the swim. In the next picture the swimmers are all waiting for the race to start and Mike is all the way on the far right side, he's facing this way and has the black wet suit hood on under his orange swim cap. The next picture is the actual start of the race and Mike is the one farthest to the right in the picture. The next picture shows the buoys that were used to map out the course. The kayakers are there to make sure everyone is okay. Mike was so fast on the bike that I wasn't able to get to the transition area soon enough to get a picture of him on his bike. The next picture is Mike coming around the last curve before he got to the straightaway. The last one says it all. He finished in just over 4 hours and 14 minutes!! I am so happy for him :)

Over forth of July weekend we spent time with the Willison side of the family that live in Utah. My (Kristy's) sister Carrie was able to meet Ryleigh for the first time. Ryleigh really enjoyed playing with the cousins and watching the fireworks. The last picture is at a local playground where Ryleigh is holding on for dear life!
