Jackson Hole







This past weekend was full of fun, and alot of tired moments. Aiden's pictures will sum it up... Trent, myself, Aiden, Ryan, and Kristie all went to Jackson Hole for the weekend for a volleyball tournament that Kristie and I were playing in.
The Tournament started out full force when we showed up friday night. We had our first game at 5:30pm and 7 games later we walked out the gym at 11:30pm, it was crazy but very fun. We held a firm spot in 2nd place after winning 6 and losing by 4 in our final game on friday night.
Saturday came early at 7:30 for an 8:30 game, we were definatly tired and it showed through out the day.
We won our first game, lost our second... Which put us into the losers bracket, and knew we had to come back strong. The Game started and about 7 points in, Kristie jumped to hit a ball and came down wrong on her leg and blew her knee out of place. She was carried off the court, and recently found out that she tore her ACL. We couldn't believe it...
We ended up winning the game and stayed on the court again for the next team to come on. We pushed so hard through the next couple of matches and ended up losing in the third game by 2. it was a great opportunity to play in a tournament again, but oh man are we trying to get our bodies caught back up.
Aiden was such a trooper again and was so good!!! Trent was also amazing and very supportive through the whole tournament. I love my family very much, and am so sad for Kristie.

You guys have so much fun. Aiden looks so cute, and yes he does look like Trent. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you posting on my blog. It always make me smile knowing that you take a peek of the happenings in our lives. Trent, Jason and his family are coming to Boise to interview at the hospital in April. They would love to see you guys and Ryan and Kristie. We'll let you know all the particulars when we get them. As of today, they might be staying at least 4 days. And if we're lucky, we might take a drive up there to see them too. It's a lot closer than New Hampshire. Love you guys...Aunt Val

oh no poor kristie!!!! as active as kristie is and for as along as i have known her, i have NEVER seen her get injured! she's like the bionic woman! quinn has had a knee surgery on both of his knees and i've had to nurse him back to health on both so i hate to see her go through the same pain.
anyways, what league are you in that has tournaments in jackson hole?!!! i want to join! sounds like a blast!

Aiden is freaking ADORABLE!! He is getting so big! It's cool that you guys are still so active, even with the little one. I hope I can keep it all together like you do once this baby comes.

Poor Kristie. Good thing they're in Arizona living it up before she's laid up for a few weeks. She's lucky to have such an awesome sister-in-law! We need to talk her into jumping on the baby wagon soon.... :o)
