Look! I'm a Superhero!

This is fun! You can create your own superhero. I've always wanted blue or purple or pink hair! This was my chance. Wanna create your own? Follow this link.:

Spring Break 2009

We had a great time skiing at Keystone in Dillon, Colorado! As you can see, there wasn't much snow. Paige learned how to ski this year. She had to sit out last year because of her broken shoulder. Jason only skiied for half a day. Skiing just isn't his thing. But he and another nonskiier in our group drove up to Blackhawk for a day and spent many hours in the casino. Jason finally found someone after his own heart-Diane! She was as excited about gambling all day as he was. We were all happy-I got to ski all day, and Jason got to gamble all day.

We ate at Macaroni Grill in Denver on our way out. Lane convinced a girl sitting behind him to let him try on her beanie (complete with propreller). Only Lane....although he had a little help from Mark (a guy in our group).

We also did our part to support the beef industry. We ate at this place in Silverthorne called The Historic Mint. Each patron chooses his/her own steak and then grills it. I had a filet (yum!), and it was divine. I also had the best cheesecake I've had in awhile (double yum!). We left the kids at the condo and told them to fend for themselves. There were 13 adults in our dinner party, and we left 15 kids ranging in age from 8 to 17 back at the condos for 3 hours. No harm done (that we know of!).

These last pictures are from the first weekend in March. Luke, Jackson, and Lane played hard all afternoon. It was so warm out that they ate popsicles on the front driveway!

Well, I won't bore you with details of my life. School is going okay. I survived my first round of state testing (thank you, No Child Left Behind), and am geared up for two more grades to test.
Paige starts track practice tomorrow. Yea! I love track meets and I hope to attend most of them.
