A month ago (March 10-15) we went on a semi-last minute, yet long awaited, road trip with our good buddies Hillary & Jeremy Smith and her very cool parents, Karen & Joe Griffin. (Matt & Jeremy lived together for a time in Waco before we got married, as did Hillary and I. As fate would have it, by the end of 2006 they were married as well! Since then they have moved between China/Waco/Dallas & back again. Despite their busy lives, they're still on our A-list and that's why I'll stop talking about them now b/c I'm sure I'll brag on them more another day.) Anywho... before they started the process of moving BACK to China we got to spend some quality road trip time with them. I used vacation time to escape work and Matt had the week off for Spring Break so we all drove out to Pagosa Springs, CO and skied at Wolf Creek 30 min away. We also celebrated our 2nd Anniversary that week!
The trip there was long, but neat. West TX roads are long, straight and flat (that's also how I feel about my hair sometimes). We drove through Amarillo, saw the crazy Cadillac's buried in the ground out there, took a look at downtown Santa FE, NM (in all its tan-colored adobe splendor) and ascended into the southern mountains of CO.
Once there our skiing was cut short by some minor and major setbacks (illnesses, car trouble, multiple car rentals, skunk smooshing... call me if you want the numerous details), but all-in-all we enjoyed ourselves. Below is a great 5 minute slideshow with music Jeremy put together. Long live the tradition of spring breaking! But may our next vacation lack a certain element of adventure this one had :o)
