TriRock Triathlon

Brian and I completed the Lake Geneva TriRock Sprint Triathlon this weekend.  After completing the Big Foot Sprint Triathlon earlier this summer, I guess I couldn't get enough!  It started off as a very cool morning (about 40 degrees) and the race was delayed 45 minutes because there was so much fog on the lake.
Thankfully the race start was only a 10 minute walk from my parent's home so we were able to go warm up while we waited.
 Sporting our race tattoos....which I'm still trying to get off, I think I prefer the sharpie method.

 And we're off!!

Alaskan Adventure

Brian and I headed up to Alaska last week for a few days of fun with Daron and Leslie.  After relaxing in Anchorage on our arrival day, we went to Whittier for the 26 Glacier Cruise.
We saw seals, otters, and porpoises.

 And, as promised, 26 glaciers.
 Most glaciers are receding, but there are 12 in Alaska that are advancing...we saw one of those.

The following day it was off to Seward and to a great restaurant, with lousy advertising, called the Salmon Bake.
 Best of all, Andrea and Richard were in Alaska for a wedding and they met us for a great dinner and European Ticket to Ride!
The following day we hiked to Exit Glacier.

 Another great trip!  Thanks for hosting Daron!!

A very happy 4th of July!

We spent the 4th of July at the lake and had a blast!
Then on Friday it was up to Minocqua's Blue Lake to enjoy the Northwoods for a few days.
 Benny loved every minute of it....swimming..
...and kayaking.  He seriously could not get enough of being out on the kayak.

 We all had a great time, but I think Benny had the best time of all :-)

Happy Birthday Kelly!

For Kelly's birthday last week Dan arranged a great dinner at Sapori. 
What Kelly thought was going to be a dinner for four, turned out to be dinner for 8 as 4 of her friends joined us in the private room that had been set up.
 Here's to another great year!
