Question - Where'd who go? Answer- ...

August was a busy month for me both at work and at home.  It seemed liked I spent most of it on the road living out of a suit case.  When my work schedule didn't have me out of town, our family get-aways did.

Earlier in the month Amanda and I hopped on a flight out to Denver to go spend some time with Brett (Ostertag Forever) and his family to see a Rockies game.  If you have never seen a game at Coors Field, you ought too make the short trip out over the front range and take in a game.  It's a great ball park, actually one of my favorites. 

My favorite part of the night was when my little boy asked me to buy him a baseball so that he could "hit it so hard over the fence."    

This last week we loaded up the kids in the truck and made the drive up to Island Park to spend some time at Andy's cabin.  We spent a day in Yellowstone and then the rest of the time lounging around taking it easy with an occasional water ski now and again.

It had been ten years since the last time I had water-skied.  I didn't hit the wake with the same reckless abandon that I use to, but over all I think I did alright.  After ten years of not skiing I was glad to just be able to get up.

With tomorrow being the official kick off to the college football season, I'm sure there'll be more to blog about.  

Kade and I have tickets in hand and we'll be at LES cheering on the Cougars tomorrow afternoon.
