The McGee and Roger Family Vaca to Colorado

8 07 2009

After spending a long day at Sarah and Matt’s wedding, SOMEONE had the greatest idea to drive out that night to Denver. Completely exhausted we headed back to the house we stayed at, threw our clothes in our bags and headed off to see Billy and Naomi Foote.
Our time there went by so fast! “Time flies when you are having fun!”
We only stayed one full day, so that day we went to downtown Denver and at Rock Bottom and walked around. After several blocks we realized that we made it to Denver just in time for the Gay Pride Festival. Can I just tell you, there were some weird people there! I know a few gay people and they are nothing like the people we saw that day!


Billy Foote is currently the chef at Bar Louie so that night he shared with us his most God gifted talent… Cooking!
The five course meal including:

Bruschetta with a Mango salsa

Ahi Tuna
… please be seated for this one fokes- James Rogers ate it and liked it!!!!!

Chicken wrapped in bacon… James and I opted for Parmesan Chicken

Ribs that literally fell off the bone

And for dessert: Grilled Pineapple marinated in brown sugar with ice cream

Thank you God for Billy Foote! The McGee and Roger’s Family gave him two thumbs up ☺

Glenwood Springs, Colorado

6 07 2009

James and I had a great time in Glenwood Springs, CO as two of our wonderful friends got married. It was a jam-packed week full of bachelor and bachelorette parties, decorating, the rehearsal dinner, softball games, and of course the wedding. Here are a few pics from the week:

Here is beautiful Glenwood Springs!


The wedding!




Just did a remarkable job playing his guitar and singing at the wedding!


I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Sarah and Matt Clayton!


One Year Anniversary

6 07 2009

I can’t believe James and I have been married for over a year! It feels like just yesterday James and I were planning the wedding. I guess the saying is true, “time flies when you are having fun!” This year has been a great experience, full of new and exciting adventures.

Now a year later we have created our own home in Arizona with our own friends and community. It’s the best year of my life and I can’t wait to experience more with James by my side. My love for him only grows stronger each and every day.

For our one-year anniversary we were in Vegas visiting James’ family, so the day of our anniversary he surprised me by getting a hotel room at the new Encore hotel on the strip. It’s one of few hotels that has a five star, five diamond rating with waterfalls outside ice cream shops and garden walkways throughout the entrance. I walked in awh at the beauty within the hotel, and not to mention our glass wall view overlooking the entire strip. It was perfect night… even though I lost all our money on the slot machines. Who would have thought that you don’t win every time?

Here are some pics of our anniversary:
Welcome to our room on the 51st floor!


This is the view from our room!

James and I explored the hotel and found waterfalls and of course… the pool!

We also had the pleasure of hanging out with the Paulus family while we were there… I think this is going to be an annual tradition! James and I had a blast taking the girls through the lazy river


And last but not least, our anniversary weekend wouldn’t be complete without visiting a live filming of the World Series Poker Tournament. It was actually quiet interesting!
