Scenes from Colorado

I finally broke down and bought Lightroom 3. It’s awesome and definitely worth getting (even if you have LR2). Anyway, I was in Colorado this last weekend for my college roommates wedding. It was pretty epic. I got to see some great friends from my College Days™ — many of whom I haven’t seen in years1 — and meet some new people as well.

I think my favorite part was when Ben was reciting his vows to Kim, he did them in French. This was awesome because Kim was a French/Technical Writing major and Ben does not speak any French at all. I wasn’t part of the wedding party, but I was asked to take video of the event. So of course I brought my camera along too2:

eDays! w00t!

EDays started today and thus far it has been awesome. Ben girlfriend, Sarah, came down from CU. Then we headed out to the IM fields. Ryan, Charlie, Mike, Jens, and Chris joined us shortly after that. I rode a mechanical bull, boxed with Sean using huge boxing gloves, raced Ryan on the Bungie run, fought in the Gladiator ring, and oh so much more. There was a guy who juggeled chainsaws and then the fireworks. Oh the fireworks, what an expierence that was. The show lasted about 30 minutes (starting at 9) however people start lining up around 8. The fireworks are placed on the football field and the people sit in the stands. For the entire 30 minutes, everybody was cheering and the fireworks were soooo loud. Definatly something not to be missed, ever. There’s some dancing going on now, so I’m going to go to that.
