I'm sorry for the long delay in posting.  Life has been busy lately.  There is so much to catch up on that I won't try to fit it all in this posst.
David is currently working with the joints team.  Christmas marks our half way point with residency - 2 1/2 more years until he is finished! Next summer he will decide if he wants to specialize further- which means More training. As if 9 years after college isn't enough, right?  If he does specialize, which he likely will, he can choose pediatrics, trauma, joints, tumor, spine, upper extremity, or foot and ankle. This will mean 1 more additional year of training. 
In addition to work I've been taking a photography class this semester with the Salt Lake Art Center.  I'm really enjoying it and have learned so much already.  I'll be sure to share some of my homework with you soon.
We have the most amazing, beautiful fall colors surrounding the city now. We're striving to spend as much time as possible outside enjoying the mild weather because I know it will be snowing soon!  I've been enjoying long runs in the afternoons with Peyton and practicing with my DSLR camera in the mountains and in the city.

Cecret Lake

A few weekends ago while trying to get out of the city, we headed up to the Albion Basin area in Little Cottonwood Canyon to hike through some beautiful wildflowers. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and perfect timing on our part because all of the wildflowers were in full bloom.

Beautiful day to be up in the mountains

Eventhough it was about 80 degrees we found snow on the trail.

Love the wildflowers

We found the "Cecret Lake"

Wildflowers Galore!

Days like those make me think I need to always live close to mountains...

As I told you earlier, for my birthday we were able to spend a four day weekend in Chicago. Before this trip we had only been to Chicago once - in the dead of winter. It was a miserable 9 degrees with piercingly cold winds.  Needless to say we did not explore the city much. August was 10x better. We stayed downtown close to the lake and parks.  David went to conference during the day and I would sleep in, go for a run around the city and along the lake, then meet him for lunch.  We spent our afternoons and nights being tourists. 

Walking around town after lunch

In the park

The infamous bean


One night we walked down Michigan Avenue to the John Hancock Building

Incredible views

We spent an afternoon at Wrigley Field watching the Cubs

Stadium seats on top of homes?

Later that night we went to dinner here to celebrate my birthday

Chicago was a fun city!

Park City Food and Wine Classic

Also, this summer we went with some friends to the annual Park City Food and Wine Classic. It is a 4 day event filled with multiple tastings and classes.  This year we went to the Taste of Park City Grand Tasting which included probably hundreds of wines, gourmet foods, and live music at the Canyons Resort. We had great weather and truly enjoyed our double date.

With Justin and Sabrina

We even saw a moose!
