Merry Christmas - 2009

We shot some pictures at the Organ Recital hall at Colorado State University. I also included a shot of the house and kids sledding. I don't think it's supposed to snow on Christmas day, but we've had about 6" in the last 18 hours and that's on top of about a 5-8 inch base. I'll add more pictures as time permits.

Have a great Christmas and best wishes for 2010!

Black Hills, Crazy Horse Pictures

Here's some more pictures from the Black Hills Area the Crazy Horse memorial. If you ever are in the area be sure to visit the Crazy Horse memorial. It's about 15 minutes from Mt. Rushmore and is well worth the visit and price of admission. It's a very interesting story about the guy who started the monument to Crazy Horse. The pictures of Bison are from Custer State Park.

Mt. Rushmore Pictures

We've made a few trips to Mt. Rushmore over the past 6-7 months. The Black Hills of South Dakota is an awesome area. If you get the chance go. Custer State Park is a huge state park with lots of camping, fishing, hiking, and scenery. This post contains some pictures of the approach to Mt. Rushmore. I tried to arrange the pictures in the sequence. Don't know if how well I succeeded.

Finally!!!! Added some more Pictures

OK, well it's only been 9 months since my last post. It's been a hell of a 9 months!!! And no... there's no more additions to the family. We've made a few trips to Mt. Rushmore over this time. ...oh, and there's this employment thing that I'm not quite getting... Yes, I'm now part of the 10.2% unemployed. Some of this will be discussed elsewhere, like maybe on my other blog that I'm using as a journal.

For now, here's some pictures of some of the kids. There's more of Zita than anyone else because she's so darn cute... And she does not freeze up in front of the camera. I think the pictures below are all from Mt. Rushmore or Rocky Mountain National Park.

More Hiking Pictures - Deer

Francis, Rebecca and I went on a hike this past weekend. The weather was great and we saw a decent sized herd of deer. By the time we got to the top of the ridge that was our destination the clouds had started to roll off the mountains so our views were not what they could have been, but we had a great hike. This trailhead is about a 10minute drive from home. We usually try and get in at least 1 outdoor activity every weekend.
