Houston Rodeo BBQ cookoff!

Every March the Rodeo comes to Houston for about 3 weeks!
The weekend before it starts, there is a huge cookoff!
The parking lot of Reliant Stadium is turned into a mini-city:
complete with street signs and addresses!
Each business has a tent- and each tent is invitation only!
All you can eat! All you can drink!
As long as you are wearing the right wrist band!
We were invited by a couple of teachers that Ben works with!
It was so much fun and the food was amazing!
So to all my friends near and far... the best time to visit Houston is in March!
The Rodeo is such a great time!
Just saying... if you need to get away from the cold and snow! This
is the perfect month to do it!!


Last weekend we spent the day biking!
We both had great rides and Ben even
packed a picnic to munch on after we rode!
8.5 miles goes by pretty fast sometimes!

Getting ready to ride!
I'm always behind that guy! I try so hard to keep up!

Pausing on the homestretch! Trying to be tough! :)

Durango, Colorado

Last weekend we were able to take a last minute ski trip to Colorado!
We had such a great time and cannot wait to go back!

Pausing on the slopes for a great shot!
I was so intense about staying up on my skiis, sometimes I forgot
to look around at the amazing creation!
We were flown there in one of my co-workers private planes!
This excited guy had the opportunity to sit in the cockpit during take off!
My 2 wonderful co-workers that we enjoyed the trip with!
Their significant others were also there!
Looking good on those ski's!!
Finished off the trip with a great valentine's dinner with my guy!
