Wyoming Weekend

Last weekend I made a little trip up to Wyoming. The company Brandon works for was having a company picnic at White Pines Ski Resort. We had so much fun, the company had all kinds of activities to do and we took advantage of all of them. It was a much needed little break for me to recoup before next semester.

We went mountain biking, something Brandon has done and has total confidence in doing. I, on the other hand, have been on nothing more than a stationary bike in the last 5 years. Yeah, the phrase "It's like riding a bike, you never forget" means crap to me. I totally forgot. And let's just say that we learned that when I get frustrated my inner 5 year old really shines through.


We particularly enjoyed horseback riding. Our horses, BoBo and Heidi, seemed to be rather competitive, but we had a blast regardless. Our guide was a soft spoken, real true blue cowboy and it somehow added to the "feel" of the experience.
(Doesn't my honey look cute on a horse?)

This fire in Wyoming is so massive. At that point it had burned over 10 square miles, roughly 7000 acres. But its still blazing, and is much worse now than it was a week ago.

Me and B at the top of the mountain. I just love this guy.

I bet it was great to spend sometime with your husband. You're one tough cookie, Julie. I'm a bag of tears if I have to leave Ned for more than three days (It's taken years to build up to three days).
We should most definitely hang out. Ned will be practicing with his band a lot which will leave me alone in the evenings a lot.

Oh you looks so cute together... especially on the horses! I'm glad you were able to see Brandon this weekend and recoup from finals...

So we found a place :)... I'm so excited! It's so beautiful there and we are so excited to move... We'll be heading there in 3 weeks!

Ohhhh! I'm so glad you and Bubbs are still able to see each other often. Sounds like you had a fun time together! Oh... and I finished "Speak." Very good book! Thanks for the suggestion.
