We're Still Here!

Hi everyone!  Yes, we update like 87 days or so, but Mom has been busy with her day job, and her photography job, and a business class, and taking care of us, and, well, doing stuff that hasn't been conducive to bloggie posts.  However, Mom took off last Friday and this Monday to spend some quality time with us and to take a mental heath break, so we are finally able to catch up!

Anyhoo, Abby is doing just fine.  The stitches are out from her latest surgery, she is tolerating the new chemo well, and on the days that haven't been a gazillion degrees (seriously, this has been a HOT June so far), we have both been frolicking in the yard.

Yes, my sister never fails to amaze me!

Mom was all excited that we had a foggy day!

Me? I'm just happy for zoomies!
In addition to all the other stuff Mom has been doing, she and Dad did a "walking tour" of Main Street, so Mom could learn a little about the history of Park City while also scoping out some photography locations.  We didn't go along, which was just as well, as it was raining as Mom and Dad were driving into town, and the tour guide even called Mom to see if they did wanted to do it because it was thundering and lighting....

The very first place on the tour was a place originally built to be a boarding house for miners, and is currently condemned, and yet still for sale for $3.3 million.  (Mom couldn't find a real estate listing for the place, although there was a realtor's sign outside. I don't think she and Dad are going to buy the place, though - something about the whole 'condemned' thing... Heehee!)

Mom liked this place because she thought the stairs would deter any would-be burglars!
It started to rain again as they moved down Main Street, so Mom didn't get as many photographs as she would have liked, but she still saw a lot of cool places.  By the time they reached the Egyptian Theater, it had started to rain/sleet/hail.

After ducking in several buildings, the weather lifted a bit, and Mom was able to get a photograph of this Historic Mechanical Engineering Monument, a compressed-air powered shovel thingy that was used to clear mining tunnels.  Our Mom takes photos of weird things, but since she's embracing her inner steam punk geek, she thought she might as well embrace it in her photographs, too!  Did I ever tell you how much of a geek our Mom is?!?

Anyhoo, that is all the excitement for us!  Hopefully Abby will continue to do well with this chemo, the weather won't be boiling hot and we can get in some serious frisbee zoomies!

We hope everyone is well!
