Happy 30th Birthday Barrett
We've watched you train to become one of the most awesome pro triathletes out there.
You've always had an awesome work ethic.
You have your dad's #1-in-the-country genes.
Your mom remembers most of the past three decades.
You brought us more joy than I can ever tell.
Your sisters adored you ... and they still do!
Whether it's placing 5th in the ITU Team Triathlon World Championships in Switzerland
Or 1st in a 25-mile bike ride when you were four, your family believes in you
and loves you more than you will ever know.
Not for what you do, but for who you are.
We may not be able to travel the world to follow you, but you will always be in our hearts.
And this mom is right there with you---I'm staying forever there
praying for you every day of your awesome life.
Loving the young man whom you have become!
Little Britt came along ten years after you were born.
Looks like you are almost passing up the 6' 4" fella.
He doesn't remember much of the three of you being at home.
But as he has entered college last year, he is fast becoming your best buddy. I love my boys!

You have always approached life
with brewing curiosity and boiling charm.
Whether we were on a Real Farm like above or the Worm Farm we enjoyed or watching tractors
You have marked us all forever
beyond my dreams!
Your family thinks the world of you!
And now your wife has stepped in
to love and cherish and she does!
On Christmas Day when you were asked
what is beautiful in your life,
your immediate response was: My Wife!
You're humble and passionate and tenacious and bright and
you're on the right path of life.
Keep on fighting the good fight of faith. I Tim 6:12
