Our Family Bible Verse

Wyoming

We had a fabulous time with our family in Jackson Hole.  This was sort of the calm before the storm as we prepare to leave for Costa Rica on April the 16th.  We loved the small town of Jackson and the lodge we stayed at was at the base of the Snow King Mountain and the ski school.  Thanks to the proximity of the ski school we were able to have Carson learn to ski for the first time!  He had a blast and he is already planning our next vacation around his new found love for skiing.  Micaiah loved the snow but could not understand why we would not let her ski.  She even put on Brian’s ski boots and declared she was ready to go.  Here are a few pictures of our time in Wyoming.

Just a word of caution.  Never sit directly behind the horses!

Jill and the kids bundled up on the ride.  In a little less than a hour we experienced clear sunny skies, wind, rain, and snow all at different times.

Not so fast!  I had to remind Carson that we are from Texas and that the white foreign substance below him was very slick.
