Jackson Hole

FINALLY.  Finally after four years we made it to Jackson Hole.  Back in 2006 while we were dating Jaren took me all the time!  In one summer we went three times, which was quite a bit.  Every summer since then we talk about going, make plans to go and then things come up and we never do it.  I'm always very bummed.

For the last 3 weeks we've been talking about going and planning on going and then push it back and back and back.  Well, it went from Saturday to Monday and then to for sure Tuesday.  I never really get my hopes up.  But this Tuesday it was!

We didn't get on the road till 1:30 because he still put in half a day of work, then we got Naomi ready to go to her Grandma's after she woke up from her nap.  But it was just so nice being with him - I don't get to see him all that much because he is so incredibly busy.

I wanted our picture in front of the signature antler thinger, but couldn't stop anyone to take it, so we did some individuals.
Isn't he so dreamy? :)

And Jaren was so sure he could take one of the both of us.  So I let him try, but told him my lens wont allow that. 

So, we walked around for an hour and a half, going through shops.  We found Jaren a super snazzy beautiful (well I thought it was beautiful) shirt.  We got some ice cream and ate it in the park.  We wanted to have dinner at the Cowboy Bar or whatever it's called but they and every single other eatery didn't open till 5:30!  And Naomi decided that she didn't want us to have a real date day and only napped an hour so we had to cut it short.  So instead we headed back and ate in Driggs. 

But before we left I asked someone to take our picture!
And I took one of the arch msyelf.
And Jaren took this one of me.  I think I may put it as my profile picture I like it so much.

All in all it was so nice to finally have some time to just talk and be together.  Even though I didn't get to ride the Gondola like I wanted or the Alpine Slide like I hoped the time we were able to spend together was priceless.  Although I'm hoping for another trip before snow falls so I can finally ride that Gondola!  And next time I wont wear such squeaky shoes....

We stopped in a clearing of wild flowers on the way home that I'll post about next. 

Oh, and like my new header?

I DO like your new header. It's so pretty.

I love both of your individual pictures. You're such a beautiful couple. I've never been to Jackson Hole, but always heard about people going there when I lived in Rexburg. What's all the fuss?
