Lane: "Have you updated your blog lately?"
Me: "Too fat."
Lane: "I know, too fat right?"
The funny thing is I like blogging and reading blogs. I get it though, sometimes you are just not in the mood. Too much to catch up on. Well, here is a small attempt to catch up with the wrap up of summer. I'll try to keep up a bit more this fall :)
I will miss all of these summer things!
Perfect glass lake!!!

I am soooo proud of my dad. 65 and still as adventurous and athletic as ever. Within the last few years he has had a knee replacement but that didn't stop him from doing what he loves. He bikes just about every day, plays tennis, golfs, walks, lifts weights, etc. I just love that he has always been so active and has encouraged me and the whole family to be this way also.
He was riding on an old school bike with no shocks none the less. He argues that "the bike is great". Probably because he got it at a garage sale! I on the other hand, had a dreeeaaam of a bike thanks to Rosie and Bart!! :)
We finally made it to the top. Notice the snow in the background.
Just around the bend we found a girl that had fallen off her bike and broke her elbow. I got there first and said my dad was a physician and was just around the corner. You could see the relief in her eyes. He was able to offer her comfort, as someone else called the paramedics so she could be helecoptered out of there. This sling was jimmy rigged up for her in the mean time with sticks and some gauss. Nice work dad :)
This is one of our favorite camera spots. Desolation Lake. It means we are almost to the end of the trail and on our way to the glorious paved downhill ending.
We forgot to bring snacks on the ride. Not smart. So we munched on these mushrooms. We felt really weird after.
I was giggling and falling off my bike :)
Beauty at it's best.
Until next year...

This last time we went we managed to recruit Kels' fave friend Shaun. And of course we took pics of ourselves. One eyed willy style.

Even attempting yoga this early and with the injury and all, I was half hoping/ wishing that I would get some positive feedback from the instructors such as this:
“Oh wow, way to go coming to class with your broken finger that is constantly PULSING and you can’t even use your whole hand to do the poses. Way to go to even try! Good job, 6 AM and everything!”
On no people, that was WAY too much to ask from the Bikram Natzis. My comment of the day was:
In her annoyingly calm yoga voice “Ok, soooo um even though you have a broken finger, you still need to get your arms back!!....go back, more back, WAAAAY back” as she carries on with her usual jargon.
Ok on to DAVID GRAY!! Beccs and I were able to go see him live at Kingsbury Hall. He was amazing live and I highly recommend going to see him. I am bringing this concert up in this post because we experienced another Natzi like experience here.

I am just happy that I didn't break a bone on this thing. I did however break my finger recently while tubing, none the less. Yes, I am 11 again. Slip and slides and tubing rides.
