Hey, it's good to be back home again

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still alive. We returned home from our long vacation to Utah last Saturday night. We had a great time visiting with family. Here are some of the highlights:
Snow on the drive up.

The Art City Days 5k with Lani.

Prepping the deck for outdoor carpet with my father-in-law.

Beautiful views if the LDS Timpanogos Temple from my brother-in-law's house. Click here for more info about LDS temples.

Roasting s'mores. A frequent occurrence at my in-laws'.

Doggy family reunions. (Left to right: Fenway, Boston's brother; Jack, his dad; Boston, himself; Jill, his mama; and Chip, his other brother)

The Art City Days Carnival.

Visiting my sister and niece in Salt Lake.

The family's alternative cooking experiment.

Family reunion at Bear Lake.

Visiting my parents in Idaho.

And fireworks, of course.

I had some great runs and races while there. I've reported on most of them already, but I still have a race report for the Fourth of July to write. That will be coming shortly. My last three runs have been in three different states, and the previous one was a long run with my brother-in-law stretching across the Idaho-Utah border. I feel well traveled but am very glad to be home.

Preview of posts to come:
-Race report for the Provo Freedom Festival 10k
-Mile attempt #7

Hopefully I'll be able to get those up very soon.

I love the "alternative cooking experiment"---looks like something my family would do!
I love following you around on your mile attempts. When you finally hit that, we are gonna have one wicked virtual party.
