Canoeing Grand Teton National Park

A number of years ago, I fell in love with the idea of a backcountry canoe trip in the Tetons but we’ve just never made the time for it. I swore this would be the year. Lucky for me, Colton, Miara, and Marcus were all up for coming along with us (Ben is never phased by […]

The gorgeous storm had brought with it an almighty gale and the yurt, parked right on the ledge of the mesa was wrapped in the sounds of a heavy storm. All night I dreamed that there was a yurt next door that lost its roof to the storm and I slept in fits, wondering if […]

Ben and my dad had entered Lotoja twice in the past, and twice, Ben had to finish the race by himself. Last time, the race ended in knee surgery and a year of recuperation for my dad. This year, free of injury, the three of us entered as a group, swearing that this would be the […]

Trapeze Seattle

Trapeze Seattle

One of the best parts of visiting some of the larger cities in the states is the availability of flying trapeze rigs.  Seattle didn’t disappoint, and by my sister Caroline’s request we took a class.  Upon arriving at the rig, I couldn’t help but laugh at the age demographics of our 6 classmates.  Every single […]

Fish Food Hot Tub

Once the day had cooled even a tiny bit, we headed back into town to wander the markets in Siem Reap. We had our eyes on a few things to take home to our families, so we got busy trying to shop. As it turns out, we are two of the world’s worst shoppers. Even […]

The Elephant

The Elephant

The first thing many people think of when they think Southeast Asia is elephants.  While they are much more prevalent in Laos and Thailand, they seem to be part of everyday life.  They help with agriculture, transportation, logging (unfortunately), and anything else that an animal as common as a horse in the states might be […]

Flying Trapeze in Austin

Ever since we tried the flying trapeze in Boston, we have been hooked.  It just happens that there is a rig in Austin, which about an hour or so from Megan and Brandon’s place, so when we decided to visit Texas it was high on our list of things we wanted to do. Trapeze Austin did […]

Ever since Bree found out about inexpensive dance lessons at the Murray Art Center, we have found ourselves drawn back time and time again on the occasional Friday night. We arrived with Bree’s parents to the lesson on East Coast swing just before it started.  There was a fairly good turnout, with 10 or 15 […]

Ben: Bree and I have been talking about escaping for a weekend in the Grand Tetons ever since we have returned from our dirt trip.  With the weather turning colder and the campsites within the Grand Teton National Park closing up for the year, we had one more chance before the snow rendered our visit […]

A few months back we haphazardly purchased a Groupon for the iFly, FlowRider, and iRock in Ogden along with Colton and Miara.  We assumed we’d be able to milk three dates out of it.  Extra points since Ben’s parents gave him money to do the iFly clear back when he graduated.  This was the perfect […]

Since we made the trip out to Green Murky Abyss Blue Lake, Utah for our open water scuba dive certification, we decided it might be fun to stop at the Bonneville Salt Flats since neither of us had ever been there.   We were already pretty exhausted from a night of camping in Wendover and four […]

Scuba at Blue Lake

This weekend we performed the open water dive for our scuba certification.  The dive was at Blue Lake, Utah – about 30 minutes south of Wendover. We did two dives – one on Friday afternoon and one early Saturday morning.  We stayed overnight at the Wendover KOA in a tent.  It was cheaper then a […]
