Just LOVIN' Spring break x 2...

(the x's 2 comes from the fact they we "celebrated" 2 instead of the one that the school gives us). We have had a complete blast this year during spring break. Starting 1 week early, Annie, Harrison and Ryan came up to hang out and go spring skiing. We even played hooky from school on Monday -- you just cannot pass up great snow and 60 degree weather. Best thing is that there was light snowfall just a couple of days earlier. It was a PERFECT day -- all 3 older kids are now boarding or skiing better than their mom and little Bo is completely ski "independent." It took much coaxing from Bo to finally let her go and to my great surprise, this little three y/o took off (even turning). YEAH! I have 4 skiers now!
Then came our real spring break -- going to the valley is always the best vacation. We just chilled for 4 days, ate a yummy BBQ from Brett, went to the Caddy's beautiful wedding, had a girl's night with awesome Karolyn, shopped, and hiked with Grandpa J. I was totally impressed by my kids' ability to hike up Ussery Pass -- they kicked my tush going 'round the mountain. I just love the little red faces of my kid-e-o's after they finished the hike.

Just Lovin' on Papa PJ!!

We loved Spring skiing this year too. Though we weren't in the mountains (little jealous). We'll HAVE to come visit ;) .

Jen,
I really love reading your blog. The pictures are awesome and the children are so beautiful. It is a good thing they have a beautiful mom like you!
Hope you are well and happy in your new home.


Love you, Aunt B
