New addition to the family....

introducing Hammy the Hamster

Another season of swimming lessons....

and another season of fear in Jack's eyes. We are hoping that Mr. Troy can make that fear go away and help Jack become a great swimmer. Here's to another session....

Pinewood Derby

THE car. Lucas and Darin spent many hours making the 'perfect' car. I think they did a great job for their first year.

Here is a picture of the competition....6 other cars from his Den buddies.

The race begins....Lucas won his 1st 3 races (very exciting) but fell to 3rd and 4th place after that.
He placed 4th overall in his den.
The boys and their trophies. Already thinking about how to design their cars to race faster next year.

Grand View Lodge in Brainerd

We had a great time in the pool. Even though it was not as big of a water park as Arrowwood....the temp was bath water warm. It was great!
While the big boys were outside building snow blocks....Jack entertained Solly by reading to him and pretending to put him to bed with his blanket and nukie.

Saturday was spent on the slopes tubing and snowboarding.
The boys at the beginning of their lesson. They had a great time. The lesson ended with a ride up the chair lift and a very STEEP hill to board down.
