The dogs are doing great! We take them to the dog park regularily and they love it - they are learning more and more about how to interact with other doggies and humans. I taught Jax to high five yesterday (his newest skill), and they're both great about "crate", "off", "sit", "bed". They're not always great about "come" or "stay". They're a lot of fun... Jax is an excellent running partner. Roxy is too short to do much running, but she thinks she can so I take her occasionally. They get more well behaved every day.

Hood to Coast was a blast as always. :-) We had a great time and everyone had a lot of fun. Christine, Patrick, and Kathleen all flew in so it was a little hectic getting everyone from the airport, hosting a team dinner, and then starting the race the next morning, but we worked it all out. I had a couple of blisters and my calves are STILL a bit tight, but it's definitely always a highlight of the year.

We went to Dallas for about 5 days the weekend before Hood to Coast to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday! We had fun at the party and hanging out in Dallas... not so fun was the very early morning runs to train for Hood to Coast. We also went out to a nice dinner with my parents and sister to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary.

We're going to Chicago for my 5th year college reunion / homecoming next month. I CAN'T WAIT. Geoff's never been and I haven't been in 5 years (yes... I can't believe it's been that long), so it's going to be extra special!

Has started! My favorite time of the year! Blankets, laziness, and football... what more could you ask for?

Lots of camping coming up! We camped with Geoff's brother and parents in early August when Trevor was in town for a week, and we'll be camping the next 3 weekends in a row. We're doing a quick weekend trip with Geoff's mom this weekend, then going to the coast with my coworker and her family and friends next weekend, and then we're going to try an overnight backpacking trip with the doggies the next weekend! It will be interesting to see how they do, especially Roxy and her tiny legs. Since she's still a puppy, she can't carry anything yet (her bones/joints aren't fully developed), but Jax can!! We'll take one week off from camping, and then we're camping again the second weekend of October - again at the coast. And I'm going CRABBING!!! That's right, me on a crab boat. Look for the footage on Deadliest Catch. ;-)

Those are most of the highlights... a few projects in the works as well... once those get going I'll post about them too!

Happy Labor Day everyone!
