Renaissance Festival

uploaded from my iPhone

We came down to the valley for the Renaissance Festival today and
Kiefer loves all the knights and swords, but for some reason the tree
guy is his favorite and the one he remembers from last time.

This last week was a little crazy and I realized I haven't updated the blog, so in case anyone is wondering, Cooper is doing really well, the antibiotics, IV and oxygen did wonders did get him back to his full self and he was able to come home Sunday morning. Here he is on the recovery path as he had fun playing in the play room at the hospital.
I had planned on going to WPPI in Las Vegas and it was a little up in the air with how Cooper was doing, but once he was recovering well I decided to go ahead and go on the trip. It's a photography convention and we had planned to have all of our full time Showit crew come which is rare for all of us to be together since we all work remote. This meant we had people coming in from LA, Santa Barbara, Fresno, Mesa, Flagstaff, and Chicago.
It was great to have everyone in the same room and have a chance to go out to dinner and get to know each other outside of work. We had a couple suites in the MGM Signature and had set times throughout the day where we were meeting with customers and getting feedback and providing training. A couple of us even ventured to the top of the Stratosphere to try out their new rides. Jason did the X-Scream twice and here he is on the front of the ride while we were watching, it was crazy how they have this cart that hangs you off the building at almost 900 feet up and keeps sliding you forward and tilting you down.
We also did the Insanity which hangs you out over the edge and spins in circles until you are facing down while spinning, it was definitely insane.
We had a great time and even went and saw The Blue Man Group which was a great show and pretty entertaining. Another fun part was having Matt come along from Flagstaff as we had been talking to him about working for us managing some of the business operations and some sales for our company, so it was a good chance for him to meet the crew and see what we are all about (mainly having a good time). He plays the guitar and stole this one from one of the wandering mariachi players to show him how he's got better skills, I don't think the guy was too happy about that :)

Cooper hasn't been feeling well so Elisa took him to the doctor and
they said he has an ear infection and pneumonia. We're in the ER now
and waiting for a room to open in the hospital so pray for the little
guy, isn't he so cute :)

More Snow

We woke up to about a half foot of fresh snow but rather than take
pictures of it, I think Cooper's expression while looking at it is

Super Bowl Recap

Well, we made it back to AZ after a long travel day on Monday. If you were watching the game and wondered if you saw us, in HD you could barely see us on field goals :)
It was such an exciting game and we had a great time cheering for the Cardinals, they almost pulled it off! I even got interviewed by Biff from Letterman, but it didn't make the final cut, oh well :(
The NFL Experience was pretty fun and Jon is definitely the one with the quarterback arm, but after knee surgery he couldn't kick so I was the winner in the field goal kick :)
Although Dad still throws a nice accurate spiral:
You can see more pictures from the weekend over on Flickr.

excited! Notice Dad is down meeting people :)
