Well it's been a bit busy over the last few days as I am sure you can tell by the lack of posts. There was playing with the kids and hanging out with Suzy and then on Thursday Joe and I watched Suzy's kids while she and her husband took the day to drive into Salt Lake to have some alone time and do some shopping (they live in a pretty small town). I was glad to help them out, but unfortunately about midmorning on Thursday I started to have a bit of a sore throat and it kept getting worse and worse. Fortunately I have experience with Strep so I called and made an appointment at a local clinic for Friday morning before the end of business on Thursday. By that doctors appointment on Friday I was pretty miserable but they gave me some good drugs and I am feeling much better today. We are now in Jackson Hole, WY and it is cold (12 degrees) but pretty here. Today we went for a drive in the Tetons and saw a moose and a wolf (we think, it was pretty far away). Here are some pictures from my husband again, all but the moose are from the Seedskadee wildlife refuge that we went to Thursday.

It was nice to have some time away to relax without the kids, but I was sure missing them. We got back into Rock Springs about 8:30 on Monday night and there were many hugs, kisses and I love yous going around. We spent the night at Suzy's house and then moved into a hotel on Tuesday afternoon. I am very grateful to Suzy and Tom for their hospitality, but it was really nice to have some space for our family to be alone together again. This morning Joe took some family pictures for Suzy and Tom and now the kids are laying down for naps and I am going to run to the store to pick up a few items. We will be leaving for the Tetons on Friday.

We got back into Miami at about 7:30 Arizona time last night. It feels good to be back where we can call the kids whenever we want. I have seen a pattern developing though, last night the smoke detector in the hotel went off TWICE! I am not sure what this is about but it woke both of us up both times. I hope this is the last time it happens on this trip. Today we fly to Salt Lake and then Drive back to Wyoming to pick up the kids. We will stay with Suzy tonight and then in a hotel for a couple of days so Suzy and I can visit.
