Definitely going back....

With Skunk Creek Flats! We have been to SCF before, but let me tell you, it's now the place to go AND bring our kiddos. We hit a friends bday, and had a GOOD TIME!!! There was a bounce house, playset, bull riding, a band, and plenty more to explore! There's nothing better than the kids wandering to and fro, and coming back to home base to check in! LOVED IT!!!

The kids ran around in the dirt, like this, all night!


Nothing like finding and picking up random things off the ground.

Had I known there would be so much to photograph, I would have been better prepared!

That's right...the new camera is here!
I can't wait to break it in!

Chinese New Year

Today, Cutter had a Chinese New Year party in his mandarin class. Nothing like going to help out when you didn't have to plan it!!! WOO HOO!!!

There was some coloring...

Some Chinese writing...


A snack with chopsticks...



(sidenote: Sorry for the quality of pics, due to a Tough Mudder incident, we are without a camera.
These are all courtesy of my phone!)

He got a dollar, but wanted 10!!!

He'll need to find a new family for that tooth fairy!

Coolest Dad Ever....

That's right, Cutter and Christian, your dad is pretty cool! He proved it this weekend, when he gave the Tough Mudder a whirl. He successfully made it through the 12 1/2 mile course and all 29 obstacles! Way to go Collin!!!

The tough mudders...

Let the FUN begin!

Nothing like a little electrical shock.

One of the best parts was getting to spend the whole day with the BFF.

Kari and I had our own little Amazing Race happening, just trying to keep up!

But enough about us...let's get back to the action!

Still together...getting closer.

A little more electrical shock before the big FINISH!


No better way to spend an afternoon than with good friends and a little exercise!

Some Durango Faves...

Let's ski!

My 3 skiers.

Psyching himself up...deep thought.

Love my boys...

Keeping an eye out for dad.

Boo hoo, vacation is over!

Thursday, January 5, 2012 3...the last day. :(

Let me introduce...MR. SKI!

That's right...Christian was back at it today!
He wanted another day at school.

It paid off for sure!

Cutter got some ski time in too.

The after ski cool down.

Since Christian missed pool time yesterday, we made sure he got to go today.

Collin and I were FREEZING!!!
Winter poolside is not quite the same as summer poolside.

Our last supper!

Durango was AWESOME!!!

This was New Year's Eve day, and we packed it in!

Christian was feeling it and wanted to hit ski school.
Not only AGAIN...BUT...ALONE & ALL DAY!!!

He's getting all signed up.

With Christian gone, Cutter got dad all to himself!

All ready to go!

We met up for lunch and Collin said Cutter did A-OK!

We made the switch, and Cutter was all mine!
Not to be outdone by the fun he had with Collin, we hit the pool!

He loved the slide!

Some hot tub action.

After the swim it was time to head back to get Christian.

Cutter patiently waiting...with a straw of course.

Christian was a happy camper...or skier, I should say!

After a full day we hit dinner and finished Dec. 31st off with fireworks!

Not a bad way to spend New Years day or eve!
