Balanced Rock

Jed and I went out to explore the Twin Falls area Saturday. I had seen a picture of balanced rock at Shoshone Falls, so we went to check it out. It was a pretty neat place. We hiked up pretty close to the rock and I was excited to have Jed as my photography assistant while I got to use the new lens that he got me for my birthday. We had some fun, then went to get ice cream at a local dairy in Buhl, ID. I look forward to going again in the spring when things will be greening up!

Collective Soul

Jed and I saw Collective Soul in Wendover last weekend. What a great show! We had such great seats and the music was great as well. I would recommend if you get the chance to see these guys live. They are classic.

Big Springs

I've kept meaning to post these pictures. Jed and I went to Big Springs in September and had a great time. It's a lot of fun: we rowed our way down stream and saw some great wildlife while at it. If you look closely, you can see a moose (or two) behind Jed.

Our Trip, Part II

You might just think that all we did when we were in Florida was fish. It may appear that way from my last post. Well, we did other things too. We went to River Street in Savannah, which is a really beautiful city. We also went by Paula Deen's restaurant there too. We spent time on the beach (however, we're both pretty white, and don't dare bare our whiteness there.) Good times!

Amelia Island, FL

Jed and I recently visited Amelia Island, Florida for the annual APAO (Association of Physician Assistants in Oncology) conference. I went along for the ride. Before the conference, we went up to Moncks Corner, SC for some great cat fishing. Then, we spent some time in Savannah, GA - where we met up with one of my old roommates from Ricks College - also, Jed served in Savannah on his mission. In Fernandina Beach, (the city we spent time in on Amelia Island) we did a little bit more fishing - where we each caught some great big fish (Jed caught a huge stingray and I caught a great big shark.) During Jed's conference, I spent some time on the beach, in the historic downtown, and at Fort Clinch State Park. It was a beautiful place to visit and we had a great time there!

My First Airshow

Today, Jed and I went to the Blue Thunder airshow in Idaho Falls. Wow! I've never been to something like this before. The Blue Angels were pretty amazing. They do some insane aerobatics. Here are some fun pictures from the show. Impressive, huh?!

Just Moved In!

We just had a new little friend move in with us! (Well, not really WITH us, but very NEAR us.) Our new little neighbor is of the hummingbird variety. Her nest is just outside our back door above the patio. I've been snapping pictures like crazy. I've never seen a hummingbird nest before and this one is pretty cool - it's built on a hook in the eave of the house out of spiderwebs and egg shells and other goods. I put out two feeders in the hopes that she'll spend more time here. (Hopefully I can get pictures of her eating.) Hopefully we'll see a baby soon. I'm afraid to try to look up in the nest - I don't want to disturb it, you know?
