Sugar Hallow


We had a beautiful spring-like day in February, that made you want to spend the entire day outside after being cooped up for months and months.  We dug out our spring play clothes and hit our favorite hiking spot, Sugar Hallow.  After crossing the river on rocks (that was interesting with three kids), we came across the most amazing icicles I have ever seen!  They were hanging from the rocks, some were melting, and big pieces  were shearing off while we were there.  Ellie called it her own Arendelle, thank you Frozen for being a part of every outing with our family.


Nothing makes me happier than seeing my crew covered in dirt, playing with sticks, and just being outside.  We needed this day after all of the snow, ice, and missed school.  It reminded us that spring was coming and it would be glorious when it finally arrived!


This is now her new trademark smile every time I take a picture.  I think she is trying to tell me to stop with the pictures already.


Love her gusto for life!



This was a picture from another warm winter day that we had in February!  This little girl is going through an accessory stage: glasses, hats, gloves, helmets, vests, she loves it all!

I am working hard to enjoy the weekends with my crew, and not get too tied down with work projects or setting up for school.  I am going to miss these days of everyone home, no commitments, and just an afternoon of sunshine to enjoy together.

My Ski Bunnies


With spring here at last and my computer finally up and running, I wanted to share some of our fun in the snow we had this year!  Thanks to my awesome sister and brother in law for saving my computer from the black screen of death once again.  I think I really will need to invest in a new computer sometime soon…possibly a mac? 

Anyway, I finally got all of my winter pictures uploaded and had to share these awesome two at ski school this winter!  Bradley and Ellie jumped right into ski school in Wintergreen and haven’t looked back.  My parents went up to watch them at school one day and got a bunch of pictures.  It was so fun to see them mastering something new!

Grace came up with me to drop them off one morning!  It was cold up there on the top of the mountain!

We also had an awesome time tubing down the big hills at Wintergreen too!



Our littlest one got some fun in the snow this winter too with the many, many snow days we had this winter!





She loved getting pulled around by her big brother!

I am so happy to see signs of spring everywhere around us now, it was a long winter!
