Go Dylann, Go!

Today was the annual Children's World Jog-A-Thon.

You've got to stretch first.

Then they were supposed to run 3 laps around the courtyard (they were so excited, I think they actually ran 4)

Logan and I cheered

After the running and cheering we needed to replenish those little bodies with some water and oranges

And the big surprise - Gold medals for everyone!

Great job monkey class!!

We've been wanting to head to the snow for a couple of years now, but the timing just wasn't right. This year we made it a point to go and it was so much fun!

We rented a cabin about 1/2 mile from Bear Mountain and went with a couple of other friends with children so that we would all pretty much be in the same situation (naps, beginner skiers, etc.)

Our view:

Day one was all about getting settled in and of course, checking out the icicles all over the cabin! It was also the day of trying to get the girls to sleep in the bunk room. It was their first sleepover so they were up way past their bed time!

Day two. The Dads took the girls skiing - or at least they tried. After getting somewhat used to wearing their equipment, the girls were insisting on heading up the slope via the ski lift.

Maybe not a great idea. The Dads ended up carrying the girls down.

Oh how I wish I were there to witness this fiasco (I was in the cabin with Logan and Maddie while Logan napped).

Day three we woke up to a winter wonderland! Over a foot of fresh powder covered everything!

We went sledding in our own private area only steps away from the cabin - so fun!

Then Becky and I headed to Snow Summit for some beginner/intermediate skiing. "We rocked" that green and blue run!

Day four was pack-up day but we still managed to head out for some more snow fun. Our intention was to go tubing, but since the girls decided it was much too frightening, we built snowmen instead. Ray whipped one up in a couple of minutes - he's a New Englander - no wonder.

Great time - great friends!

he's 1

sounds cliche, but this past year flew by! my little man just had his 1st birthday and i truly can't wrap my head around it. he still feels like a baby to me - probably because he isn't walking yet (dylann was walking at 10 months) and he's still pretty little (wears 9 month clothes).

i began planning his party about a month ago trying to decide on a "theme" but i just wasn't inspired by anything until i found this website. i decided on a slightly off primary color party. i know he won't remember his party, but i felt that since i had a pretty nice party for dylann's 1st i wanted him to have the same. lots of photos were taken (thank god for friends with nice cameras) so that he'll be able to look back at the evidence.

it started with the banner

then everything else fell into place

it was a great weekend!

happy 1st birthday logan!
