A Picture of a Picture

Yes. This is a picture of a picture, a picture of a $15.00 picture to be exact (courtesy of the Circus-Circus). In fact it is the only picture we have of remembrance of our fun trip. Still from Thanksgiving, we have not charged our camera battery... We went down to Vegas with Mac and Nate to go and see Phantom, and of course, take a picture on Lake Mead of a shark getting us - and to warn you, this REALLY happened. (Shaunee and Emily). Thanks for inviting us you two and hope to be back soon! P-A-R-T-Y at the Planet Hollywood - with the Highway Patrolmen in Beaver.

Oh Deer!

These little guys are sure cute when they are little. I remember growing up in Washington and loving when the deer would journey into our back yard. Inexplicably the deer would stop coming when they were older and looked like this guy.

  I now know why the little stopped coming into our back yard. They probably got hit by a car. For being cute and fun to look at, they sure are dumb. While driving on Canyon Road towards Alpine, one of these lovely creatures decided that it would be a good idea to jump on top of our car. I tried to slam on the breaks and swerve, the deer even made a last ditch effort to miss the car (a little too late if you ask me) and he jumped. As you can see from the picture the damage was isolated to pretty much the windsheild (thanks for jumping) and a few dents on the side of the car and now not functioning handle. Besides the minor damage and a scared to death wife (Lauren still swears that the deer looked at her and winked) we are ok and the car will be fixed.

Were Back

A big shout out to Mom and Dad Stiles for the FABOLOUS trip, which included - The Emerald Bowl (Cal vs. Miami), shooting at the range, mani's/pedi's, great movies, shopping, yummy foodies, taking care of Devan (the goober was sick the whole trip), tennis, and long walks on the beach. Ok, not that last one, but I know we all thought about it. Thanks so much for the great trip and the fun memories. Although we were short two (we missed you Dal and Kerry), we hope to be back shortly... and when I say shortly, like I am thinking next week when we get dumped with yet again, another pile of snow and we could use the get-away to the 'warm' weather. California love.

PS. Sorry for the lack of pictures. Took our camera - battery died - but Devan did bring our charger - but still didn't take any pictures. Don't know why and that's not a lie.?

Went shooting yesterday... admist a good time with the Stiles clan - I felt a tingle inside of me that made me swear I was the following people...

My gun - James Bond (Daniel Craig style)
Dev's gun - Fidy Cent, T.I, (You get the point)
Father Steve's gun - Some sort of hot Russian spy chick (make your own assumptions)

Good times.

Must return home tomorrow, back to school, work, and life. Thanks for the fabolous trip and hope to be back soon! :-)
