What happens in Jackson stays in Jackson

This last weekend found me and three of my best girls out raising Kane in Jackson Hole, WY. We had a blast going whitewater rafting down the Snake River, horseback riding, shopping and just enjoying the absolute beauty of the Tetons.

I'm trying to convince Nate that we should move there. I'll open a cake decorating store that specializes in moose and rafting cakes. It will be awesome (I have yet to convince him but I know once he visits he'll be hooked).

A few hilarious conversations that we enjoyed:

"We should go to Mt. Everest, that's in Alaska right?"
"I want a pair of moose panties. And a moose bra, I want a matching moose bra."
"I don't know, I'm not actively sexual."
"No horse, now is not the time to run."

Here are a few pictures of our fun trip:

Due to the graphic contents of this photograph it has been censored to protect the innocent. (But it is proof that I, Haley, can achieve cleavage in extreme circumstances).

This is probably how my face would look if I ran into a live polar bear, the only difference would be that there would be a warm stream of liquid running down my leg.

This was right after our chuckwagon dinner. Life was very good at that moment.

Vonda and Meagan enjoying the biggest margaritas any of us had ever seen.

Logan and I enjoying our water. Yum, yum!

Our trail ride at Heart 6 ranch. This is FireFly, I called him Dragon. We didn't really bond we just kind of tolerated each other. It was a "no strings attached" relationship, once the ride was over we parted ways without any regrets.

Overlooking the valley. It was a gorgeous ride. It made me miss my wild days wrangling.

I wish we had gotten a picture of our cute little wrangler, Miles. He had the girls hearts a flutterin'.

Just posing for a pic. I think Dragon is looking at a bear, he kept looking back with his ears perked up like there was something in the woods...

Our last picture together. I couldn't hardly move after our 2 hour trail ride. I truly walked like a cowboy, it would have been kind of cool if it didn't hurt so bad.

Here we are right before we went whitewater rafting. That was a blast and Logan found love with her rafting guide.
You can't see my shorts and you should say a prayer of gratitude for that blessing. Vonda let me borrow a pair of her shorts since I forgot mine. The problem with that is her butt is two sizes smaller than mine which resulted in a perma-wedge, that was neat.

That's enough for today. More pictures to follow!

I miss riding horses. The last time I did it I was in high school and went with some friends to ride on the beach. They asked "are you comfortable with horses" and I said, "well, it's been about 3 years, but yeah I think I am" (We owned several horses on our land growing up and I would ride them almost every day) And then they proceeded to ignore me and give me the "old gray mare" who was one trot away from keeling over and dying. I was persistently a half a mile back from everyone else in the group. Pissed me off.

More from your trip, please!!

looks like a fun, fun trip! Wish I could have gone with you. I am hankering for a trip. I keep telling Bob that I want to go on an adventure trip but we have no money or vacation days from work.
We are going to the temple in Palmyra for a sealing Aug.14th. That isn't really an adventure for just the two of us. It is a branch activity.
Maybe you, Hill, Aramie, Jess, and I could plan a trip for next spring or summer?
