A few more Pagosa Pictures....

this time with Bo in them too. Some funny Bo moments -- Brandy took Bo out to visit her brother during our little trip. From what Brandy tells us, she had them rolling the whole time. One such example was that she wanted a straw to drink her hot chocolate. When the reply was "Sorry Bo, we don't have any straws." She promptly said, "Well, you didn't even look." Then (I am sure fearing the famous Bo temper tantrums) she had all adults looking through the cabinets to check for the much wanted straws.

She also loved skiing -- up and down the magic carpet like a champ. Her favorite part -- hot chocolate and fishy crackers (always a much needed snack after a long day of skiing).
Hunter became Mr. 4-wheeler. He took to the bikes so quickly and is a champion rider. It always makes me happy when Hunter is able to find something that he can enjoy with little effort. Snow boarding at Wolf Creek was much more difficult than skiing at Sunrise -- with longer runs and thicker snow, he was definitely challenged on the slopes.

Kadan took to his air soft gun like no other -- setting up targets, shooting Ian (that was so FUNNY -- he even got a welt to prove it) and chasing Harrison. He also was partners in crime with Harrison in the only 4-wheeler incident of the trip -- laying the bike down since they took the corner too fast. We are proud to announce that there were no injuries. Tuckered after a few runs of boarding, Kadan, Hunter and I ate loads of junk food, drank gallons of hot chocolate and took silly pictures and videos of each other while we rested at the lodge. Harrison -- fly swatter extraordinaire (we had a huge fly infestation at the cabin -- total yuck). He rocked at boarding -- the only kid to keep up with Grandpa B. He was an amazing help the whole trip. I keep telling him that he is my 5th child.
Addy is fearless -- riding faster and faster on her bike, sledding down the largest hills, racing down the slopes (I couldn't even keep up) and venturing on to moguls (thanks to Ian). She is definitely in her element when she is in the snow.

I love that pic of Addy watching the 4 wheeler go by. Straws are so very popular. What up with that? Wish I had invented them!!!
