As a family we certainly love each other, we even like each other- And I am really grateful for that.
It has been awesome to be back in new england near these crazy cats that are my fam.
A few highlights from the past month:
Iron and Wine in Portland, ME
We wandered around downtown in and out of coffee shops and thrift stores, ate amazing food and saw a truly talented group. We laughed really hard together. Oh yeah, and Iron & Wine was fantastic!

Dave Matthews- Throwback Fans
A few weeks later, Meg and I were totally stoked to get tickets to Dave from a friend! We hopped in the car to nostalgia- ville and saw a great show. The icing on the cake was being there with such fun people and catching a drum stick at the end of the show! WHAAT?!
Food and drinks in the VIP tent!
So talented! Throwback to high school favorites.
We caught a drum stick that was thrown into the crowd! We were super jazzed about it.
The Triathlon Father’s Day
As of last year, it has become a family tradition to do a relay triathlon on father’s day. It was a way to re-invent what we did on father’s day now that dad was no longer with us. We race in his honor and spend time together outdoors.
It was an amazing day! Team Evan (.5 mi swim & 13 mi bike) and Meg (5K run) came in first in the male/female relay group and Team Marcia (13 mi bike) , Abby (5K run), Zach (.5 mi swim) came in third! Yes, The dana teams crushed the competition.
Then we went to moms, hung out with family, ate steak and did some varsity level napping.
Meg, Evan and Zach running in with me to the finish!

Miles, and lots of smack talk later, WE DID IT!
