Lake Annecy Half Marathon

This past weekend we went to Annecy, France for Kevin's first half marathon.  He ran it with four of our friends, and they all killed it!  I was so incredibly proud of everyone especially Kev.  Just picturing him running to the finish line is getting me all teary eyed (must be the pregnancy hormones -- I am due in 2 weeks after all).  Seriously though, it was such an extraordinary achievement not only because, duh, it's a 21 kilometer race, but also because it so beautifully illustrates his determination and strength in his recovery.  To think that 5 months ago he was retraining his brain how to stand, and now he's running half marathons.  Pretty amazing if you ask me.  He finished in 1 hour 52min and I couldn't be prouder. 
Where We Stayed
We stayed in an awesome house on the lake.  Click here for the link.

Andrea finished 3rd of the group, but we missed her photo :(.  Kevin came in 4th.

And last, but not least -- Jose!
Jose, Jose, Jose, Jose!

And with that I am FINALLY caught up with all the blog posts.  Yay!  Now Baby girl can be born anytime.  We ready to meet her.  Don't worry Heather, I promise this blog won't turn into a boring baby blog.  It'll still be about our travels, but with a new addition in the pics.  In fact we already have baby's first flight booked for our friends' wedding in Vienna.  If she's born on time she'll be 5 weeks old.  Are we crazy?  We shall find out.
