Thanks for Dirt Bikes

We had a dream day on Saturday following Thanksgiving when all the boys went out and road dirt bikes at a friend of my brother Kevin's. It was 55 degrees and clear. We had a total of 3 bikes and had a great time running around. Connor said it was the most fun he had in his life. Two weeks before, the rock climbing was the most fun he had in his life.

Boy Scout Climbing Adventure

Last weekend, Connor and I had a great trip to Kentucky and went climbing. Here is the 9:59 minute video of that little adventure. Great time.

I was in Switzerland for a week long meeting in September with the other heads of customer service for Nestlé from around the world. This is me on a break going out for a run in front of our lake front hotel. It was a great meeting, made even better by Heidi joining me afterward for a 12 day tour of Europe. We are doing well and Heidi is feeling great. We have another results Dr. appointment coming in the next month to see how the Sandostatin treatments have worked on the tumors in the liver. I feel so lucky that we have continued a "normal" life post cancer diagnosis for Heidi. Now is a tough time for me as we approach the one year anniversary of my Dad's death from cancer. At this time I was spending a lot of time in Chicago last year. We will go to Chicago for Thanksgiving and all but Karen and Mark will be in town. I had an amazing rock climbing trip with my son Connor and the Boy Scouts this weekend 6 hours south of Cleveland in Kentucky at Torrent Falls. More on that later.
