July: We got a new baby. Welcome to the family, Prince Harry-Buttons Jones.
|Who thought I would turn out to be such a menace?|
|I love my brother Ian. Sometimes.|
August: Toured Colorado via rental car with the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. VandeVelde, allez!
|I love Aspen.|
|I also love Cadel Evans, but not enough to wait around for an autograph.|
|VandeVelde in yellow in Aspen. Foreshadowing!|
|We had pretty good seats.|
|We ride fancy bikes, too!|
|VandeVelde (L) vs Leipheimer (Y) in the time trial.|
Sept: Clay turns 31.
|I like him a lot.|
October: Engaged! Welcome to the family, Jennifer Ann Jones (Jones pending).
|You know what's fun, is trying on diamonds at Tiffany.|
|We are getting married at Full Moon Farm. How cute is that?|
|I mean, come on.|
More October: Hurricane Sandy!!! This was the scariest few hours of my life so far. We are okay; New York is not. But New York is pretty used to persevering, at this point.
|Where are you, Manhattan?|
|Need to hang onto the ground so we don't fall off. Nobody is drunk.|
November: We went to Belize. Unintentional engagement-moon; very pretty, lots of bugs.
|Boats at Blackbird Caye.|
|Sunset behind our cabana at Blackbird Caye.|
|Day trip to Half Moon Caye - see definition: island. Idyllic!|
|Clay and Chris snorkeling around Half Moon Caye reefs.|
|The most darling hipster-esque ruins of a 200-year-old lighthouse at Half Moon Caye.|
That's all. Maybe one of these days I'll write you a little story about some of this stuff.
