And We're Back...

Hello Blog-o-sphere! I have been gone all summer, but I'm here to give an update on what's been going on. It's been wild and crazy, and the funnest summer I can remember.

First, this is Gavin. He loves ice cream (especially from Mora's on Bainbridge Island, WA) and we've been spending a little bit of time together.

We went to Seattle. He ran the Rock-N-Roll marathon with his mom and brother, and I ran the half. A fun weekend in one of my favorite cities!

Then, after a few camping trips, etc, we took a nice vacation to Newport Beach. It was as lovely as ever.

Balboa bars with butter brickle - maybe the best frozen treat of all time.

We did the Spudman triathlon. And then a week later did the Green River Triathlon.
Both very fun.

Gavin's mom ran her 100th Marathon (Park City Marathon), and we ran it with her. With balloons. And signs. It was great. Technically, I guess it was my first full marathon, but I"m not really counting it. It was more of a training run.

We hiked Mt. Timpanogos. I had never done it. So fun!

And football season started. We went to the USC game 2 weekends ago and spent another weekend in Newport Beach, and then made the trek to Provo for this honey of a game last Saturday. It was amazing.

And that's the long and short of it. Now that fall is coming I'm sad to see summer end. It's been very fun, with one trip after another. Mixed in there, I passed my thesis defense, finished my thesis, and got a job working at the U hospital and Huntsman Cancer Hospital. I'm 8 days away from St. George Marathon, I broke my finger...and I think that's about it. I'll be better about staying updated. I promise.
