Normally deciding which photos make the cut for our annual year-end slideshow isn't too difficult.  This year it was painful.  We had so many fun adventures this year, and I had almost 600 photos in my "favorites" folder.  So here is the very condensed version of 2011, including...
  • horse back riding 
  • rodeo
  • gem and mineral show
  • selling our first house and moving across the country
  • selling two cars and buying a new one
  • a new cousin
  • spending a good chunk of the year on the road.
    • total days away from home: 64 
    • places visited: Denver (twice for me), Idaho (twice for me), Illinois (twice), Montreal (twice), Quebec City, Boston, Portsmouth, NH, and York, ME (as well as many day trips exploring Vermont) 
  • new friends
  • a half marathon, and a 10k
  • lazy days at the beach
  • 3 visits to the ER (luckily nothing too serious)
  • a new found love of farmers markets, berry picking, and fresh apple cider
  • lots of bike rides
  • my brother's graduation
We hope 2012 brings many more adventures.  First on the list...skiing.
