Our new car!!!!

Please welcome to the family....... Betsy II

We are the proud new owners of one 2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5i AWD sedan! We are getting rid of the old blue Subaru... it was hard for us to come to that conclusion, but the voice of reason says it is time. We are keeping the Explorer (that's Jeff's fishin' truck). The Subaru will be better on fuel economy and we needed a second reliable vehicle for Aneesa while Jeff is traveling for work. We are really excited about it!

I know it's been a while

I know that it has been a while since I updated this but things have been pretty hectic around here.
Here's the update:

  • Jeff started a new job. He is now the Coordinator of Marketing and Development at the Outreach school here at UW. He started April 28th and is liking it so far. We are excited for all the new adventures that this job will bring and are even more excited that he is using his degree.

  • Karlie has finally reached 20lbs!!! WOO HOO! She can now legally sit forward facing in her car seat, even though she has been doing this since September. She is still at the UW daycare center and really enjoys all the fun activities they do there. Karlie has also become a cover girl. Her photo was featured on the front page of the Laramie Boomerang. The story is about the child care shortage in Wyoming and they came to take pictures at Karlie's school. The newspaper picked on of Karlie playing to use on the front page. Click here to see the article and photo. She is so dang cute!

  • I am still at my job in Academic Affairs and don't really plan on leaving anytime soon unless I get some amazing job offer that I just can't turn down.

We are all ready for summer to come. Karlie can't wait to play outside on her new play set and Jeff can't wait to go fishing. I can't wait to be able to wear flip flops again without having to worry about hypothermia. It will also be nice to be able to take Karlie to the park after work/school without having to bundle her up.

This past weekend we took Karlie up to the mountains and had a picnic with some friends and then went for a hike. Karlie loved being in her hiker back-pack which is nice since usually she wants to walk everywhere.

Ready for the hike:
