Yellowstone and Jackson

Preston and I celebrated our second anniversary on October 13th. I can't believe how the time has flown by. Preston had the day off because of Columbus day, but I still had to work :-( but we still did have time to grab some yummy sushi for dinner. It is usually so expensive but we decided that we could splurge. I have never had sushi leftovers before! Since Preston got me an expensive present last year (a third band for my ring) this year was an expensive gift for him. We got him a nice new suit and some dress slacks for work and are still looking for some good prescription sunglasses since he can't wear contacts. Together we got the office, and a new willow tree figurine to replace the one beheaded last year in the flood. (you can read all the details of this in last December's post :-) He also suprised me with two dozen roses! We also had a fun getaway to Jackson the weekend after. It was a much needed relief from school. Jackson always has the best food, and cute little shops.
This is us in the town square. It had snowed a few days before but it turned out to be beautiful weather. The only down side of this beautiful weather was that the spiders blew in! Literally it is some weird migration thing. They have their strings that they blow in on and so the whole town is covered with cobwebs and spiders. Can you imagine any worse nightmare??
Thankfully though the spider thing only lasted one morning. I love this picture because you can see the antler arch of the town square.
On our drive into Yellowstone we stopped at this beautiful lake. It was so calm you can see the reflection of the mountains. (except for the times that Preston kept throwing rocks which were more like miniature boulders in. You see he can't skip rocks, so instead he tries to throw in the largest rocks he can find to see how big of a splash he can make :) In Yellowstone we drove into La Mar valley and since it was dusk the animals were starting to come out. We got to see a coyote, a fox, a bear, a pack of wolves, and of course Bison and Elk! We stayed at the lodge by Old Faithful and walked around the geysers the morning that we left.

Wow it looks like you guys had a lot of fun!! You made me laugh when you were talking about Preston throwing "boulders"!!

And the spider thing is nasty...I hate the feeling of spiderwebs on me so to have spiders and thier webs blowing around is so gross!!
