Well to start off the month Jason went to Japan for 2 weeks. So that gave me time to get presents wrapped and shipped. I also did my usual volunteering at the Utah Olympic Oval for the Long Track competition. We then headed to Maryland for Christmas with the Wiscott's and Averno's.

Well I'm a little behind this month. I was trying to think if we did anything exciting, and the only thing I came up with was:

Jason got the

yep at it took him down hard. But he is all better and I didn't get it.

We had a nice Thanksgiving with our friend Justin & Maylinn Christensen and Justin's brother Ty. Justin, Maylin, and Jason did a 1/2 day of skiing. And I did a 5k Turkey Trot to benefit the Utah Food Bank. And no I didn't get hurt and I finished in 33:04. Not bad for not running for ever.

For the first week of September Jason was in Nashville TN for a seminar. He visited lots of country bars and got to attend a pre-season NFL game. Titan vs Green Bay.

As most of you know Jason and our friend Jeff Powles went to Alaska 2 summers ago on their motorcycles. Well since then they have wanted to do something else together. MANTRACKER on the Science Channel. Check out the link below this is their application, no word yet if they were choosen. So keep your fingers crossed that they get in.
Check Mantracker Application

The best news for me was I got out of the walking boot, the dr though has advised me to stop running. So Jason being the great husband bought me a Wii fit for my bday. So far doing that and walking has helped.

Summer is coming to an end

Since the summer is almost to an end I guess its time to update the blog:

Jason's parents came out for a visit the first of June. I headed to Indiana for Vickie's 9th dance recital. Jason went fishing at Flaming Gorge twice, once for the maidan voyage of the Jeff's boat and then with our neighbor Bill and his son Zach. June was also our 11th anniversary we headed up to Homestead Resort in Heber UT. We went swimming in the crater that is a 55-foot tall, beehive-shaped limestone rock that nature has hollowed out and filled with 90° to 96° water.

Jason and Sandy took a weekend and headed out on a motorcycle ride heading down to 4 corners. Pictures from their adventure: First night camping in Moab, UT. Uray, CO Box Canyon Waterfalls. The four corners monument CO,AZ,UT,NM. As the boys said a waste of time. At the temp was 109.
Sandy being funny Frye Canyon.

And this is how I have spent most of my summer since July 11. I ended up having 3rd degree sprain and 2 hairline fractures in the ankle bone. But at least my toes look good I had them done the day before.

SBK Miller Sports Park

This past weekend we joined our friend Mike and his girlfriend Jen for Superbike races at Miller Sports park in Tooele. Since Mike races he was able to get us passes for the weekend. If you notice the white canvas changes into a painting he was painting during a silent auction we attended. Also the riders sitting in the chairs were: Ben Sipes, Melissa Parks,

Park City Bobsled

For Memorial weekend friends came from Baltimore and since it was raining in SLC we headed up to Park City. First stop The Olympic Park to ride the blobsled course Jason has wanted to do the ice part of this but has always been way to $$. So instead they did the summer course on wheels for $60. The record for the course is 57 seconds.

Bear Lake Bike Trip

First Bike Trip of the year went up to Bear Lake and stayed at a "Cabin". Looks like a house to me. There was a total of 8 bikes ranging from Ducati to BMW to Yamaha.

The New Wheels

After Jason's trip last summer to DC on his motorcycle he noticed that his back wheel just didn't seem the same. So we took it to a friend who works on bikes and he informed us that the last person who put the tire on for him didn't torque it correctly. So wear and tear took place and ended up making the wheel unsafe. So long story short we bought new wheels but have realized that from now on we go to the Ducati shop for tire issues.

Jason's Winter League Hockey

Since we have lived in Utah Jason had played in a Men's Hockey League. The first couple of years he played in a higher division but the last 2 years he has been playing in a D-4 Division. This past weekend was the BIG GAME - Championship. Since I hadn't been to a game all year I thought I better attend the final game. So I conned Bill and his son Zack to join me the more the merrier. Jason's team won 2-1. He was so excited to finally win a trophy can you tell.

Congrats Might Cocks on a great season.

Pagosa Springs, CO

This past weekend we joined the Powles & Kosnak's in Pagosa Springs, CO. We stayed at the Wyndham Pagosa thanks to Jeff's old employee Eric. Everyone went skiing Saturday and then Saturday night we had a pasta dinner. Sunday the men went skiing again and the ladies and kids went into Durango for the day. That night we went to Kip's Grill & Cantina what a great place, small but good food. Jason and I headed out Monday morning since we had a good 7 hour drive, but instead of taking the way back that we came we headed up to Silverton and then over to Ouray and then to Moab. Great drive but only recommend if you have extra time and the roads are good.

Skiing Snow Basin & Painting

This past weekend Jason, Sandy, Carl & Tim (Sandy's friend from VA) went to Snow Basin.

The snow was great Jason was wishing he had his powder skis but he didn't. While Jason was skiing I painted the south wall in our living room. I did some before and after photos. The colors is Maryland Red, it took 2 coats of grey primer and 2 coats of the red but looks pretty good.

Tim - second
