About Us

Here’s an opportunity for you to step into our world.  So let me introduce you to everyone here and show you around…

 – He’s a wonderful, loving, caring husband and father.  We’ve been married for almost 16 years.  Brandon is a software developer (and my computer guru) who works for ThoughtWorks, Inc.  It is with  ThoughtWorks that we moved from North East Texas to Calgary in 2009.  And it is with ThoughtWorks that we moved back to Texas in 2013.


– That’s me.  I have recently entered back into the work force and am still trying to find that magical balance between work, house, kids, and life.  If someone has the answer, let me know!  My training came to a halt when we moved back to Texas – in July!  It was quite a shock to the system to go from a Calgary summer to a Texas one.  I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and hopefully with fall coming, it will be easier.  Not too many races in my future right now, but I’m still dreaming of tackling a 70.3.

J – He’s a wonderful 15 year old that is 100% teenage boy.  He’s a junior in high school (which I still have a hard time wrapping my head around).  He is currently working on his scuba certification and enjoys spending his free time with friends.



Z – He’s my 5 yr old that is a true Lego Master Builder.  The designs he comes up with amaze me.  His newfound favorite sport is triathlon.  The first one was fantastic and he’s eager to go again.  He loves to be outdoors and still talks about how he misses Calgary.  He is a snow baby and has been very disappointed in Texas’ idea of winter.   Z is a happy child that loves his brother (most of the time) and wants to hang out with the big kids.


Rex and Flash – These are our two very silly cats.  Rex is about 11 years old (the black one).  He was a stray that  found me.  His favorite hobby is waiting to ambush someone as they come through the door so he can run out.  I’ve never met such a vocal kitty.  We got Flash from the Humane Society in 2008.  He’s a very handsome Flame  point Siamese.  He’s grown so much, he’s actually the bigger cat.  However, Rex can still put him in his place.  They love to be outside.  Unfortunately, we no longer have the nice deck for them like in Calgary.  On my to do list is to build them a “catico” so they can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine whenever they want.  Their favorite pastimes include chasing  each other up and down the stairs for no apparent reason (at any hour of the day) and sleeping.

Bob –  My 13 year old boa constrictor.  At just over 7 feet long  he leaves an impression on everyone who sees him.  One of his favorite pastimes is hanging out on the climbing dome soaking up the sunshine.  He also has made many trips to schools to help entertain and educate the younger generation.





That’s us: The Byars.  We are glad that you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit.
