Back In Alaska

The week in Maine went by much too quickly but it was great to spend lots of time with family. My brother and I worked on an addition for a client, my Dad and I went to the Fryburg fair, I got to meet my new nephew Hayden, and spent time with Mom Penny's daughter and family as well as nephew Ben and his new fiance'.

I stayed busy enough that even though I ate way too much (four lobsters, six cream horns, mass quantities of lasagna, steak, a six course shore dinner on the coast, an epic macaroni and cheese beyond compare, and a few adult beverages) I managed to only gain a pound while I was gone - I consider that a victory. I'll post more once I get back in the swing of things and get settled. I definitely missed my wife and family back in Alaska so this shot taken in the airport before my flight home is bittersweet - I'm so lucky to have such great family to visit in Maine, and such a wonderful family to come home to in Alaska! Now I have to get back on the exercise bike this week and lose that pound and more . . . . .

Ahhh, how i do love hearing stories from the old homeland of Maine. Every time it leaves me with more of a longing to go and visit. Hopefully i can make that visit sooner rather than later.
I must admit that I'm salivating over your description of all that wonderful food you had to eat. Hopefully you've managed to rid yourself of that one pound and more by the time I post this. I'll be completely honest and say that the last time that I stepped on a scale I found that I've somehow managed to waste away to a measly 185 pounds which is a good 15 pounds off my weight when I graduted high school. At first I found this weight loss alarming but now I've come to accept it and even enjoy my newfound light body. On that note, i also wouldn't mind beefing up another five pounds of muscle or so...
Anyway, i just thought I'd let you know that I was enjoying your little blogs. I'll try to give you a call soon. I love you
Great family picture. I only wish I could have been there. Love ya
