To start off…here's today's post. A "personal" post catching people up on the lives and happenings of myself and my family over the past many months. It's been a while since my last personal/family post. For those who aren't interested in the "human interest" side of blogging, go ahead and skip the rest of the post. For the rest of you, keep scrolling and enjoy the quick blurbs and pictures from recent and semi-recent adventures. I actually haven't done a recap of activities since last fall. So you're in for a treat....maybe ;)
Cherry Hill (which is transformed into "Scary Hill" in October) for some haunted mini-golf, hay rides and general fun. I won tickets to go see
Dickens Christmas Festival to see Father Christmas and participate in a Victorian London celebration. We also took a few trips out to Temple Square to see the lights and focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
Salt Con, the annual board game convention here in Salt Lake. My oldest son joined me for one of the days along with my dad and three of my brothers. We got a lot of great games played and had tons of fun.
Rec Center for some swimming fun. It happened to be immediately after a scout campout so my son and I were a little tired, but we still had some good fun.
software conference for work to get some additional training and networking opportunities. It was a really good conference and I met some great people and came away with some great ideas. In addition, it was down in San Diego and the weather was just perfect (…which is good, since they advertise the perfect weather *grin*). Apart from the cool things seen and learned in the conference, I was able to get to a couple of beaches as well as touring the "Maritime Museum" to check out some awesome historic ships and submarines. My wife was able to join me the last day and a half and together we waded in the ocean and wandered around La Jolla and Old Town San Diego. It was a great trip.
Now the tricky part will be to try and get back into a more regular blogging routine so that I don't have to play catchup but instead I'm able to make more interesting in-depth posts. I don't foresee life getting any slower…so we'll see how well this works. Wish me luck. And thanks for reading. :)
