Back to the Mountains

Last week Chris and Allison asked us to take them backpacking, so like good neighbors we decided to take them. After much deliberation on location we finally settled on Pine Valley Mountain, specifically the Whiterocks trail. Friday night we went in 2 miles and camped, then Saturday we hiked up to the Whiterocks Reservoir (pond) and then out. A fun time was had by all and the weather was perfect- (just a little nippy friday night and on our hike). Hope you all had a good weekend too.

What? No Alligators?

Last week we took a much needed vacation and went to Florida to stay with my Family and Friends, Jeremy, Becca and Tally. We didn't take a lot of pictures, but we had a lot of fun, and after staying with Jeremy and Becca and not knowing how close we were to the Everglades and the Florida Keys, we will have to go back sooner than later.

We flew the redeye from Vegas to Ft. Lauderdale on Tuesday night and then drove up to Orlando to take a much needed nap. Thursday we went to Epcot and met Jeremy, Becca and Tally there. Although this promo video is a little tacky, the ride Soarin was pretty cool and I only got sick at the very end.
Friday we went to Kennedy Space Center and saw the shuttle that will launch next week. It is crazy to think how much energy is used to get the rockets into space. Friday night and Saturday we went to the Beach and then went down to Miami with Jeremy and Becca. We flew home late Sunday and got just a block from home when we got pulled over by a police man at 2:00 AM. I was a little short with the police officer because I was so tired and we were a block from home, but he let us off with an excuse for why he pulled us over and we ended our trip on a good note. (I guess you can't blame him for being suspicious of Cher at 2:00 AM on a Sunday night) Overall we had a great time with Family and friends, and started missing our vacation on Monday morning at 8:00 when we went back to work. Here is some of the pics.
