Headed Home

I'm just now realizing that I didn't get a picture of the trip to Utah from Seattle. It was amazing. I was in Mora with all of my belonging. Clothes, bike, everything. Plus I had a man and his suitcase. If anyone is looking to hire a professional packer, I'm... pretty good.

I was on vacation for 10 days. It was awesome. Flying kites is one of my favorite pastimes at Ogden River Parkway, and... that's... all I have to say about that.

LIBERTY DAYS. Two words: Awesome.
I can't think of anything more entertaining than watching a bunch of tiny kids chase around a greasy pig. And so many mothers secretly praying that their kid WON'T catch it.

This is Matt pretending he's God.
Also he's standing in front of a table of hot dogs.
Garret's face says it all.

Of course we had to go to Park City on our "vacation". The Aerial Jumps are one of my favorite venues.

I also got in a couple good freshie turns complete with face shots and chunkies.

Driving past Tess' house, I had to slam on my brakes and make sure I wasn't hallucinating. It was the most glorious sight. Not only was the entire family sitting in the dirt, but they were laughing and playing with the liondog and chickens. It even smelled homey. I love these guys :)

There was a lot of book reading that week.

This is Mitch and Gina who make up the band Elephant Shortcut. All their songs are original, and most of them they wrote for each other. They are all love songs, or heartbreak songs, and they're all true. Their album is called "we're not together". I just love them :)
Anyway, they invited Garret and I to go hang out with them while they recorded their new album in Salt Lake! It was awesome. We were there for a couple days, and... Yep. Epic.

We ate lots of great food.
(They say they're not together... but... We have our doubts. Don't tell anyone).

I don't know why this picture happened, but I'll always be glad it did.
Still trying to figure out which one is Garret and which one is the chicken...

Feels good to be home. I live here now. In Eden. With my family.
I miss Seattle.
But this is home :)

"home is where your rump rests!" I'm sorry, Pumba, but that statement is not entirely true. More like
"home is where your whole family gathers to rest their rumps."

Now that was poetic.

Love it.

I don't get it, Jayne
