Our friends Geth and Katie

A couple of days ago, when I was downloading pictures from Miranda's camera, I found some pictures of our dinner with our friends Geth and Katie. We've gotten to know Geth and Katie over the last few months. We knew them before they got married, and spent some time with them. Unfortunately, we were out of town and missed their wedding. But, after they returned from their honeymoon, they invited us to their house for dinner - even though we missed the wedding. We had a great time with them, and look forward to getting to know them even more!

(By the way, this is the third post in three days on this blog! Wooot!)

Quiet Summer?

So, it has been a very quiet summer on this blog. But, it hasn't been a quiet family for our family. Here are a few highlights.

Jeremy is preparing to test for his 1st degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Apparently, most of the preparations included getting beat up, bruised, scratched, scarred, and clawed. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

Miranda hurt her ankle at the beginning of summer. She doesn't know how she did it, but she was swimming, TKD'ing, and playing alot. Anyway, she cracked a bone in her ankle and had to wear a boot for 3 weeks. She's now in a lace-up brace and doing physical therapy.

Jeremy and I (Alan) went to an all day concert called Projekt Revolution. It was alot of fun.

Miranda is celebrating her 11th birthday tomorrow. Her party is tonight.

At the beginning of the summer, Margaret and I (Alan) started walking in the mornings for exercise. So far, we're doing pretty good - walking longer distances and for a longer time. We've also been eating better - less processed foods and sugars, more fruits and vegetables and water. Tonight (birthday party) doesn't count.

I'll try to update more often in the days to come... and I'll try to post some pics soon.
