Sunny Skiing Today At Ski Bluewood

Today was another awesome ski day.  We went to Bluewood and had sunny skis.  The kids both advanced a ton today.  Jaden is a snowboard machine and Joelie even went down Tamarack with me!!  I think we have new skiing/snowboarding buddies!

Great Weekend

This weekend was awesome! We left Saturday morning, checked into the Davenport (which is a REALLY nice place) Joelie and I took a nap while the boys went to play some laser tag. We then met my good OLD friends from junior high (back in Othello) Janell and her family and Kristina (aka TINA) at the The Spaghetti Factory and had such a good time talking about the good old days! Then Sunday morning we headed up to Mt Spokane for Joelie’s first skiing experience and Jaden’s first snowboard experience. Once we got everyone’s gear on and went potty for the 50th time we finally started. Of course Joelie said I can’t about 100 times, but by about 2 pm, they both had caught on and were loving it. It was the best skiing day I have ever had. I was HOT for the first time ever skiing. Had no gloves or coat on! I want to go again really soon because they were just getting it when it was time to go. But we spent the ENTIRE day there! We went back to the hotel and changed and then walked to PF Changs for some good lettuce wraps. This morning we had breakfast with another friend Tracy, it was nice to see her again and it was a really good breakfast. After breakfast, we HAD to go to the pool since we hadn't made it there yet. So the kids and Jer did a little swimming before we checked out. We then headed to the valley mall where Jeremy dropped us girls off to TJ Maxx and Old Navy while they headed to Cabelas. If you haven’t been to Old Navy’s sale, you should they are having 50% off clearance – some killer deals! We then went to Boston's I think it is called and ate lunch with Janell and the boys, our kids get along so good! Fun times! Anyway, it was an AWESOME weekend. I will try to post some videos of the kids on the hill.
