Our Family Bible Verse

Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised! The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens! Psalm 113:3,4

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.

Carson And Micaiah at Grand Teton National Park.


We took a sled ride in the National Elk Preserve.


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


“Can I come up for air now?”


Jill and her pregnant sister Jenny enjoying the ride.


Just one of the 800 plus Elk we were able to see in this herd.


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.


Carson and his ski instructor.  He thought this would be a piece of cake.


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


Micaiah doing her very best to convince me she was ready to ski.  We promised next year we would give it a try.

Unfortunately, we had to hit the road to return home.
