Trip to the Cowboy state

We spent Tuesday through today visiting Aaron's folks in central WY (8 hrs. away, but who's counting). Thank goodness for portable DVD players (thanks, Kim, for the extra set so P and M didn't have to watch endless Spongebob and Care Bears). Anyway, we hadn't been to their place in nearly 2 years. I had been thinking it was just one, but then remembered that the last time we were there, Sonya was still "scooting," so it had to be 2 summers ago. That's terrible!! I can't believe it's been that long. Anyway, we had a great time. These pictures show a couple of the highlights, although, in my typical fashion, I forgot my camera most of the time. On one of the days they took us to Thermopolis, site of the largest mineral springs, so there are a couple of nice pools with waterslides (and a nice sulfer smell thrown in, as well). But it was really fun for the kids, especially. We also got to go "rock hunting" (I included pics just for you, Renee :-) and spent quite a bit of time at parks, etc....Another highlight was that Aaron's mom gave us some money to go on a date for our 13th anniversary, so we went to a really good, authentic Mexican restaurant and then went to "Indiana Jones." (not a great date movie, but a better choice than "Sex and the City.")

Sounds like a fun time! I just had never heard of rock hunting, but it makes perfect sense ;)
