today we got back from a much needed, incredible vacation to jackson hole, wyoming. we went with our good friends sara and kimball. we stayed in a really nice apartment cabin in thayne. it was awesome! the boys tried to cook steaks the first night. sara and i made rice krispy treats and watched scary movies. the next day we went fishing on murphy lake in the grey's river mountains. it was absolutely beautiful! that night we ate pizza and watched some football. the next morning we left for jackson hole so we could spend the day there.
one of the first stores we walked into was this antique store that i really wanted to go into. sean started talking with the owner lady at the front desk. he was looking at all these old rings and i walked over and started looking with him. i found this really cool puzzle ring, and was trying to figure out how to put it together. the lady told sean that the ring was over 100 years old and was brought back form turkey about 10 years ago. she said that no one had been able to put it together since they have had it. well sean got right to work. he was determined to put it together. the lady told him that if he could put it together we could have it for free! boy was i excited. i could tell that it was going to be a pretty ring, but i wasn't sure if it would fit me after it was put together. after a few minutes, the very nice owners said that we could keep the ring even if we couldn't put it together. we told her no way! right after we said that, my amazing husband sean put it together. and guess what? it fit perfectly. what are the chances? i love this ring so much, and now we will have a great story to tell about it for years to come!
after we spent the day in the shops, kimball bargained his way into getting us cheap passes on the ski lift. then we headed over to bar j wranglers for some awesome dinner and a show. it was such a neat experience, and i highly recommend it to anyone who goes to jackson hole. we had such a great time. it was a much needed vacation!
