Eli, Brian and I ran in the annual Orem city Thanksgiving Day Run. Brian pushed little Eli in the bike trailer which caused him to have a slow start, but on mile three they ran past me with ease. Brian ended up taking 9th in his age division and I took 5th in mine. It was a great way to start the day and made us reflect on how thankful we are for our healthy little family!

Brian, Ann, Brendon, Mary Deane, Eli and I made a drive through Syracuse onto Antelope Island a week ago. We spent too much time eating lunch at Caputo's Deli and didn't have much daylight on the island, but this is what we saw:
Majestic Bison. We saw several groups of them along the East side of the island. They do a big round up to the South end of the island in October to count them. Wished we could have seen that!
This is the causeway as seen from the visitor center. They center was run by some great old people that treated us like we were just as old, annunciating the common giant spiders there very slowly for us to understand, "o r r r b b w e e e b b b w e e a v e r s". Ann and I laughed about it days later.

We're enjoying what is near! Our latest excursion was up the beautiful canyon Big Springs, only a 20 minute drive from our home. The hike was a total of 3 hours (Brian was a trooper and carried Eli the entire time!) and as you can see from the pics included a wide range of terrain. I've decided to take advantage of what is near instead of longing for what is out of reach. While I'm here in the great state of Utah I might as well enjoy every bit of it, even my own backyard! Next stop : Antelope Island, SLC!
