we visited sunriver at the end of february, in what i am sure will be a new tradition. evan, renee, brian, brie anne, brady, shahnaz, the boys, and our troop headed east for a long weekend. it was tons of fun and included lots of hanging out, some games and even a little outside time. no snow on the ground this time, but that just meant the kids could enjoy the park and they even played a little baseball. my favorite was rory and owen playing outside on the deck, sweeping the pine needles.
evan, renee, brady and i hit the slopes one day leaving pat at home with the girls. it was a lot of fun and reinspired my love of skiing. it was also cool, b/c brady and i haven't skiied together in more then a decade. some things never change, as the first thing out of his mouth was a challenge to a race down the hill. those were the highlights- the down side was lucy was a horrible sleeper for the 3 nights leaving me a bit exhausted and overwhelmed. i am looking foward to next year, when we just have kids, no babies- i can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
