This weekend we made a trip up to Laramie for UW's homecoming game. We stayed two nights at Matthew and Charlene's apartment, the Asay Bed and Breakfast, and had lots of fun. Friday night we got to help Matthew feed the goats and then it was off to Corona Village for our favorite Mexican food. Saturday morning we woke up with good intentions of going to the homecoming parade, but woke up to 6+ inches of snow and a temperature of -9 with the windchill! Needless to say, we felt more like singing Walking in a Winter Wonderland than Ragtime Cowboy! We lounged around and had some yummy breakfast and then got up the courage to brave the game. We ended up only staying for part of the first quarter and the beginning of the second because Travis was extremely angry about being in his monsterous coat! We went back to Matthew and Charlene's and got a few things ready for their bbq that night while Christian, Matthew and Carson went to try and check out the geology museum. It ended up being closed, resulting in a very sad Carson. Christian had been telling him about the dinosaur bones for quite a while and he was pretty excited about seeing them. When Charlene and I got done with our few preparations, we decided to go have some fun of our own and do a little shopping. That night Matthew and Charlene put on a bbq with some friends. We are so thankful that Matthew and Charlene will put up with us and our boys. We stay with them quite often and the are always so much fun. They spoil our boys and us! Thanks again guys for the fun weekend!

This is what it was like when we left McCook, a beautiful fall day! We had NO idea what was in store for us when we got to Laramie!
