A self portrait....
Mom/Grandma holding Kayla while Dad/Grandpa and Amber/Mom eat, some good family times....
Kayla chillin on her fun blanket, she like to dance and wiggle on it - hence why her hands and feet are blurry.
Grandma and Grandpa enjoying the 76 degree Colorado weather on Amber and Ty's new porch, enjoying their time with Kayla
Aunt Lisa taking Kayla for a breath of fresh air
Got to go out to breakfast with Dad and Mom...hadn't had a picture together in a while
Amber, Ty, their friend Brett and I went to Old Chicagos in Fort Collins for St. Patty's day, good times, good beer, good laughs.
Then I stopped by my dad's work and he showed me this great smoker he's been building himself to have up at their new house in Nebraska, can't wait to use it!
I got to surprise my godson Baylie for his birthday as well, and his parents (my best friend Amber and husband Jimmie) surprised all of us with a trip to downtown Denver in an awesome limo to the Colorado Crush Arena football game! Loads of fun!
Here we all are chillin in the limo - Baylie, Amber, Nolan, Kolin and me :) We had lots of fun waving out the window to everyone.
Here we are practicing how to use a Pibal and Theodalite system. The red ballon is released then the theodolite tracks the elevation and azimuth as it rises, showing us what the winds are doing through the atmosphere.....very important to wildland firefighting.
Here is General Johnson - the director of the National Weather Service (a very BIG supporter of the IMET program!) and Kelly Hooper - one of my trainers during last summer's fire season. We worked on the Rattlesnake Fire in Garden Valley, Idaho.
Down below is Aimee Fish (also an IMET trainee, from Alaska Region Headquarters) and I at Bogus Basin! One night after IMET class was over, about 10 of us decided to go skiing at a place just north of Boise. It was a little sloppy at the bottom (it was 50 degrees!) but we still had a lot of fun!
