Casino Night

Last weekend Chad's sister threw a "Casino Night" party. It was a blast! Chad and I learned how to play (with all the real rules) Texas Hold Em', Roulette, Craps and Blackjack. Everyone was given the same amount of chips when they arrived and could gamble the night away. Lots of people came dressed up. Some did the 70's style (including us) and some played the high roller scene- there really wasn't any rules to dressing up it just made the night a lot more exciting and fun! Below are Chad's sisters- Ruth and Katie aka Bunny and Red and Jeremy and Rick- I forgot their casino names.
One pic shows our luck at the craps table and also Chad dealing for the Roulette table- "No more Bets"!! And Peter even made it up from VEGAS for the party! All in all it was a great night for "SHOW ME THE MONEY!!" Thanks Tabitha and Andrew!

End of Summer

Well we made it through our first summer together! Life is awesome. We have left Fort Collins, CO and have moved back to Boise. We are living in a small apartment across from BSU. Chad is loving that because he can walk to school and work for his last semester. I am currently working for Dorian Studio photographing school pictures and sports for them. We'll see what comes up next. Anyway, during all the getting ready to move, moving and removing I slacked A LOT on the blog! So here is an update of the last days of our summer:
1. We made it to visit Aaron and Melissa and our new nephew Tanner! We had some fun doing family pictures and of course ones of the triplets! (for more of those visit Aaron and Melissa's blog!) Thanks guys for letting us crash and play Rock Band. Hopefully we'll make it down soon!

2. Chad took me down to his hometown of Glenwood, UT! It was awesome for me to be able to put a picture to all of his stories, and see where he grew up. We also were able to see Chad's Dad and step mom. This trip was complete with a stop to Ideal Dairy where we picked up a childhood treat for Chad and his family.

3. We were able to make it to the Twin Falls, ID temple open house. It is a beautiful building and was a neat experience.

4. Over Labor Day weekend we went to my grandparents cabin with my family. Besides the cold weather we had a great time playing and relaxing. These pictures are of our adventures with the pedal boat. We crossed the lake with my sisters and made that awesome sand castle. As we were getting ready to leave we noticed that our boat had floated away! It is that little blue speck in the water. My mom and Grandma I guess, noticed from the cabin window and were laughing at us forever! We were clueless

5.We also went to the Colorado Springs Zoo where Chad had a business meeting in the morning and we got to feed giraffes in ths afternoon. Cool huh?

6. Sarah Jeppson and her family were in Vail, CO and I was able to go spend the day with them. It was super fun. We had an adventurous hike and then rode the ski lift to the top at night. The view was gorgeous!

7. My family came to visit us in Fort Collins. We had a lot of fun doing a lot of hikes in the park, celebrating my birthday, hitting up the drive in movie, playing rummy all night, and enjoying a friendly tennis game! They also helped me pack and drove Chad's car home. You guys are the best!

8. And last but not least, for the last two summers Chad and some friends have been renting a cabin for the weekend in McCall, so this year I got to come along. We played games, went swimming and did the "cliff" hike (picture on the left) and then Chad and I snuck away one night and found this amazing hot spring.
