Halloween

Halloween was fun this year. However, at 18 months Carter wasn't really into it. We went trick or treating at my Mom's work and my work on Friday, but Carter wasn't really interested. In fact, he was eating an apple at my work while trick or treating. Maybe he'll get into it next year? Then, on Saturday we went to a kids/adults Halloween party at my best friends house. It was SO fun! Carter and I had a blast playing with our friends.

I was a vampire with my department on Friday (trying to recreate my costume from 5th grade when I won best costume at school), and Super Mom on Saturday, along with my SUPER cute little Super Man.

Carter thoroughly enjoyed all the sugar at the party!! :-)
Just your average day at the office for Lisa and I.

Cave Falls

A day trip to Cave Falls near Ashton, ID. It was very pretty and had a nice little nature trail right along the river. Jason said he caught plenty of fish in this river when he was younger.

N'Awlins


I went to New Orleans recently to attend a conference for work for 4 days. I missed Carter and Jason tremendously, but also had fun. Man, N'Awlins has some TASTY food and I would designate it the city that never sleeps. I stayed in the French Quarter and it was a great location. I found out BBQ shrimp and coconut bread pudding are simply delightful. The conference was good too, got some good info, and made some good contacts. Oh, I also took a self guided tour of the State of Louisiana Supreme Courthouse. It was pretty cool.

I was disappointed I couldn't really enjoy the pool and sweet bar on the roof of my hotel. It would have been a fun place to chill with my hubby and/or girlfriends.




Fun at the conference mardi gras dinner party

My co-worker and I. I thought this looked like something from the Roger Rabbit movie so I had to get a picture.

Hike

This is the first hike Carter has taken with us on foot. He did pretty good. Got tired occasionally. He loved to stop and play in the dirt.

Ga Gogs

Carter thinks the dogs in the back of the truck are hilarious. We only caught a little of it.

LOTOJA

Jason's Dad, Carter's best friend, "Papa," completed his second LOTOJA bike race on September 11, 2010. This is a 206 mile bike race from Logan, Utah to Jackson, Wyoming. Gary is in his early 60's and I'm just amazed that he is in such great shape. I shouldn't be surprised, he trains all the time. He is dedicated. We went to Jackson, WY, to watch Gary finish his race. Great job Papa! We are glad you survived!

Carter waiting for Papa to finish


I think this is Gary just about to finish, but I can't be certain it wasn't one of his teammates.
That mountain in the background...my FAVORITE place to ski - Teton Village.
