A new year dawns!

 Its been a little while, but we are still living up to our reputation of having fun. We spent a few glorious days in the San Juan Islands, caught a glimpse of some Orca Whales.

Did a wee bit of hiking, Mt St Helens to the top with a glacial glissade part way down. And later in the year Silver Peak again, one of our favorites.

Sara taught many of my family members how to climb trees during our family reunion weekend. Needless to say, she was VERY popular.... as per usual.

And managed to get one backpacking trip in during PEAK mosquito season. It was miserable.

We enjoyed the company of 14 lesbians, 2 gay men and a baby for Thanksgiving. And yes, we managed to all fit around one table (well three tables covered by a very large table cloth). I love community.

And now 2012 has come to a close. It was a good year, but a different year. Not our usual breakneck fun, an entirely different kind of breakneck fun. I am not sure how to compare it, so I will let it stand alone. Maybe as an indicator of us changing (dare I say, evolving?) or not. 2013 will reveal if its a trend.

I sincerely hope everyone stopping by has love in their lives near and/or far and good things around them!
