As a whole we have been having a great year. We spent Thanksgiving of 2013 with our wonderful friends the Henderson's in Memphis Tennessee which was a great trip. We road tripped it as always and the kids all did really well. Then we spend Christmas of 2013 in Durango, Colorado and enjoyed some family time and riding the Polar Express. In March I was fortunate enough to take the express ride off of a ladder at work and fell about 20 feet or so (I still have not measured the actual distance). I was going to attach a picture of my knee after the fall but then figured some may not appreciate it.
Sadly Sarah's uncle Kelly began his fight against cancer in 2013 and fought long and hard and,unfortunately, lost the fight in July of 2014. Kelly is and will always be remembered as a great man. He was Captain for the Santa Clara County fire department and was a man filled with passion and love for his family and friends. He is a man I look up to and aspire to be more like and will miss greatly. My biggest regret is that my three boys will not be able to spend time with him at the ranch in California.
Sarah continues to run her own photography business and is doing very well with it. Somehow she is able to manage her business, clients, kids, and me all while keeping sane. She has recently began her own quest to lose some of the weight from her pregnancy, and once again I find myself so proud of her. She has reached the goals she set for herself and has become very dedicated to keeping us all healthy.
Sarah and I recently celebrated our 11 year anniversary in Keystone Colorado with our three boys and our very good friends Corrie and Leigh. I took the opportunity to try and right my botched proposal over 11 years ago. Whether or not round two went any better than round one only Sarah can say but at least this time there were some tears and laughs. Sarah did yes so that is a plus.
