Orpheus in the Underworld

Gabe made his debut in Houston, Texas. It was a major success and everyone that saw the show loved it. Gabe played "Mars" in "Orpheus in the underworld." It was a comedy based on greek mythology with some modern day satire. The set was neat, and the director used digital backgrounds which was different from anything I had seen. At one point in the show the Gods leave Mount Olympus and journey to Hell to rescue a mortal.
The screen came down during set changes and looked like fire. Then the screen opens and low and behold Vegas is their destination.

I took this shot on my phone inconspicuously, so it turned out blurry. I can't even find Gabe

Jupiter and his son Mars. The picture leaves out Gabe's incredibly short skirt. His legs were fabulous :)

Some down time off stage. He's grading midterms for the class he teaches. What a dedicated instructor!!!! He did an awesome job. It makes me even more excited to see the upcoming shows!

Fun times at Hermann Park

Gabe and I ventured down to Hermann park about a week after the hurricane. It's right near the med center and south of downtown. It's huge, and very beautiful. There is also a zoo nearby. We're waiting to go when it gets a bit cooler.
This is an asian garden

Stealing kisses

I love this picture, he looks so happy

Whoa, getting higher

Jumping off was scarier than I remember

Gabe jumped too fast

The garden center. The roses were beautiful

This is the view from my hospital on the 25th floor. Downtown is in the distance

Hurricane Ike

Hurricane Ike was quite an experience. We were very lucky. Our apartment had very little damage, but as you will see, our complex did not fair as well.

View from outside our porch

And yes, this is Gabe pointing out a TV in front of our bedroom window. What kind of person would leave a TV out on their front porch in the middle of a hurricane?????

Well, our very own blog :). We've been very inspired by people we love to create our blog to help keep in touch with everyone, share pictures, and to just relive funny moments. We've kept very busy since our move to Houston with new jobs, new school, and lots of new places to see. We thought we'd add some pictures from our amazing trip to Hawaii first, then we can give you a glimpse of Hurricane Ike pictures. What a crazy time to move to Houston. We were remarkably lucky. Hope you enjoy the blog!!!
