Moab, Music, Magic, and Football...

So it's been a while since my last entry. A lot has happened... Let's see...

Moab: We went, had a wonderful trip/meeting and now were back! It was a great trip. Nice, relaxing and some great team bonding for work. We stayed at the Red Cliffs Lodge. It was soo beautiful. The pic below is the view from the restaurant that is in the lobby. We could not have asked for better weather, it was warm enough that we didn't need coats. That is the Colorado river.
It is not like a normal hotel these are their rooms and then they have cabins. (The boss got a cabin so we could party it up). The rooms are great and the back door is right at the river. At night, Garr and I would sit out on the back patio of our room and look at the stars, it was amazing how many you could see. Just perfect!

We got there Thursday evening, checked in and met in town for dinner with everyone. I ate entirely TOO much! Then we had a little party with some of us and then hit the hay. We got up Friday, at some breakfast and the had our meeting. It was good and had some fun team building activities where I learned that I am bossy... that is according to one of my co-workers...
Then it was time for the big team building activity... You can tell from the pic below, but we are on the back of the HUMMER getting ready to go 4-wheeling! This is me, Britt and Scott...
Here are our 2 hummers. We had such a blast. I have not done anything like that before, SMF! The ride was a little over 2 hours, of course before we started, we had to stop off for some adult beverages to take along for the ride... (I love my work). We did all different kinds of tricks with the hummers, some of which were pretty scary. I did scream a lot. We went up this super steep hill backwards... Our driver was totally laughing at us. He would just tell us to hang on to our drinks...
I wish the pix really told how crazy this was. It was SO freaky... this is us... just hanging out. Good times... We stopped in a couple of place to soak up the beauty of Moab. I forget how beautiful it is. I have been there a couple of times, but the beauty never gets old.

While we doing our "work" stuff, Gar took the car and drove through Arches National Park. He had a great time. Time to himself and relax and not think about anything. We needed this little retreat!

Since we have been back, it is nose to the grind stone just working and rehearsal. The show is going good and I can't wait to open. It will be a great show.

Ang called and gave Gar and I tickets to the Utah Symphonies, Music and Magic. The music was so beautiful, there is nothing like listening to live classical music. Then they had a magician come out and amaze us with her magic. She was really something. I have never been to a live magic show and I just loved it. I love that she had a hot male assistant. That was great too.
Ang and Beck brought the kiddies and they had a ball. They couldn't believe all the tricks that the magician did. It was fun to be there with them. The are all so dang good looking. Must run in the fam!
I told Nat I'd post this great pic of Jacob in his football uni. We went to his last game of the season, I think I mentioned that in an earlier post, but here he is... All growed up!

Glad you had a good time in Moab. I can't believe the picture of the hummer with all those people in it. It looks like you are going to fall out!

I can't believe J plays football! Do you remember when we taught him how to say burger?

Love you

Well of coarse you're bossy, you're a Virgo Duh! So what's the problem with that? Somebody's got to do it! But I don't think you're so bossy (compared to me!) What a fantastic trip - it so beautiful. I love the red earth against the bright blue sky. So picturesque. Your show opens this weekend I believe so break a leg! Love you guys and hope you enjoy the holiday month..Christmas lights and parties and snow (maybe) and eggnog, and decorations...it's all so exciting!

Love ya, miss ya
