home again!


the big push for summer shows has come and gone and it's great to be home!  it's difficult to explain the mix of absolute fatigue and exhiliration we experience each summer.  it seems like i should be really skinny based on how hard i've been working. ha!
our shows went well and i must thank all of you---both friends and acquaintances-- for making our endeavors successful. 
truly, we have been blessed.
we had a blow out on the way to Park City.  cheered the womens' gymnasts!  stayed one step ahead of wildfire smoke in Ketchum.  ate the best burger ever in Jackson at the Rendezvous Bistro.  we shared camp with deer and moose, heard about a bear and surprisingly, never saw a single bison. 
we met future Olympians, paramedics, prayer partners, younger, elder.  hugged on old friends, hugged on new ones.  we completely enjoyed our new toyhauler (must admit my favorite aspect is being served coffee without getting out of bed)  we shared camp with artist friends, dogs and campers we'll likely never see again.  we hit Heise hot springs outside Idaho Falls and practiced Michael Phelps moves.......our pups Roman and Tinker scored A+ the entire trip!! 
one thing i am thankful for--knowing that this is an election year, we were prepared for the inevitable barrage of political rantings----and it wasn't so!! unlike 2008, it was pretty quiet out there.  hmmm.  
we'll be in Corvallis Oregon next weekend, come see us?  no Ducks game scheduled...:)
