Is it still cool to put "izz" in the middle of a word? Oh well. I still like it anyway.
Some people might be asking where I've been lately. Why did I have a guest blogger for my AI post? Why haven't I been here discussing all the mundane things in my life? Why do I have no Facebook status?
The answer is simple. Spring Break.
We loaded in the van and headed off to Utah for some fun at Gty's parents' house. Utah might not seem like a glamorous place to vacation, but to us it's the perfect destination. Activities included ice skating, downhill skiing, hot tubing, roller-blading, Broadway show watching, Easter egg rolling, Easter basket scavenger hunting, out-to-eating, movie watching and river swimming. Where else can you do all THAT, I ask you.
This post will be dedicated to the ice skating. They built a huge ice skating practice facility in Logan when the Olympics were being held in Salt Lake City in 2002. Since the boys are suddenly obsessed with hockey we decided to head on over to check it out. They have skates to rent and cute little walkers for Beebs to ice skate with making it enjoyable for everyone. We went the first day in town and then went back again after a couple of cousins flew into town. Gty's sister flew in her two oldest girls from California for some winter time funtivities. We will call them Rosebud and Vee.
Ice Skating Day One:
Despite that last picture up there, Tbone was an excellent skater. JBird was even better. It's amazing how quickly they can transfer rollerblading skillz to ice skating. Beebs started out with her walker thingy but by the end of the week she was going out on her own. If we lived there I'd have her signed up for figure skating lessons in a heartbeat. She loved it.
Ice Skating Day Two:
Phil gets Grandpa of the Year for ice skating with all the kids both days. He was making Milly and I worried sick (as we sat in the seats and watched) with all of his fancy tricks he kept attempting. He fell a couple of times and jammed his shoulder pretty good once. He is now worried about how it will affect his golf game. Such sacrifice for the grandkiddies.
Oh you think this is the end of my Spring Break pictures? Ha! Nice try. More to come, my sweets...
