Nephews & more

I had the unexpected opportunity to spend last Sunday with my nephews.  I loved them so much.  It was a great day and a much needed break in the midst of my schedule that has been overwhelming and crazy.  Hannah and her boys came to spend spring break at Grandpa & Grandma's.

 Marshall loves being silly for pictures.
 JT & Sam
 This was as good as we could get of all four.  It's very difficult to get 4 little active boys to sit still for a picture and look at the camera all at the same time.
 After lunch I took Marshall and JT on an adventure in the park behind Grandma & Grandpa's house.  Logs, hikes in the trees, throwing rocks & sticks in the creek, wading in the creek and mud.  What fun!
 Mom's redbud tree is in full bloom and beautiful!
 These are the wonderful ladies I spend Tuesday nights with.  We took a life group picture for a scrapbook this week.  I love learning and sharing life with these women.

I went skiing with some friends in Winter Park, Colorado two weeks ago.  I hadn't been skiing in 3 years.  It was great to get back out on the slopes.  I had never skied at Winter Park before.  It was fun, despite the high winds.  We skied for 3 days and the last 2 it was so windy they closed a number of lifts. I was glad I made it all the way to the top of the mountain (12000+ feet) the 2nd morning before lifts were closed.  Views went on forever.
It was a fun little trip!  Lots of beautiful views and good friends and food.
