Mark and I decided last minute to head out to Colorado for the week of Thanksgiving. We got to stay with Emily and Josh Stokes in Denver, while taking a few days to head into the mountains to snowboard. While we were there, we also got to hang out with Rudy, Paul Kind, Brook Smith, and a whole crew of people from the Quad Cities, including Jamie Walden, and the whole DeCoster crew [that so graciously included us in their fabulous Thanksgiving meal]. It was a blast, even though there was very little snow on the mountains yet. We were so thankful [no pun intended] for the good friends and the fun, refreshing times we had with each of them! I was really bad at taking pictures, so we don't have many. Mark says next time he gets to be in charge of the pictures so we actually come back with some :). Here are a few that we did take:
Okay, so I stole this pic off of Paul's blog, but it was a really good one. This is the four of us jammed together in a gondola at Steamboat. We just saw them in South Dakota a few weeks ago, and even though they live 12 hours away, we got to see them again so soon! I love it when life work out like that!
