I love the Jazz...

So I decided to surprise Kim (although it was mostly for me) and take her to the Jazz/Suns game Wednesday night here in Phoenix. We had decent tickets, first row on the upper bowl, which in the Suns arena, isn't too bad. We had a great time, although we had to sit next to some stupid Lakers fans. Oh well. The Jazz played decent, but ended up losing. They made up for it by beating the Suns three days later in Utah.

This is me at our seats with the Lakers fan in the background.

We went to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner before the game and it really was pretty good. Thanks Kim for letting me surprise you with something for me!

Camelback Hike

Kim and I (Jake) decided to take a few hours away from school and work and go into Phoenix to hike Camelback Mountain. It's in the middle of the city, and it's not really a mountain. Its more like some hilly rocks, much like you would find at the City of Rocks. It was a beautiful day to get outside, right around 60 degrees and sunny when we started the ascent. It's only about 3 miles round trip, but the climb takes you up about 1,500 feet, so it's fairly steep. There were a TON of people and dogs on the trail, but it was still a lot of fun!

Us at the top. There were about 15 Thunderbird alum's who had made the hike and were kind enough to take some glamour shots of us.
The great city of Phoenix, Arizona. 5th largest city in the U.S.

About halfway up the trail. It got a lot steeper afte that.
3/4ths the way up. I didn't think we'd ever really make it.
Kim perfectly posing like she always does. I didn't mean to get so much sun in the photo.

My trip to Vegas..

So I recently made a quick, two-day trip to Las Vegas to meet some potential employer contacts and rub shoulders with some T-bird alumni. It was an enjoyable drive, I thought I'd include some highlights from the trip.

The long, lonely road. I'm surprised this picture isn't more blurry, given how fast I was going.
And this one is to show how SLOW I was going for my Mom. And how I just tripped 99,999. Fun.
