AND WE'RE BACK!!!

Sorry we've been on a little hiatus the past couple weeks. It's not that we've been particularly busy...just lazy. We headed out to CO a couple weeks ago to visit some friends, and Shelly helped throw Lindsay Keough a baby shower. Mike and Lins are expecting in April and they are so excited. Here is a picture of both Prego Ladies. Lindsay was 31 weeks and Shelly was 23 weeks.


We also headed to the Mountains for a little adrenaline rush. Rillos and I went snowmobiling at the Continental Divide just behind Winter Park. Can you spot Rillos on his snowmobile in this first picture? You may have to click on the picture to zoom in. It really gives a good perspective as to how big the mountains are. The ridge you see in the picture is the actual Continental Divide.


We also got a picture with the Henderson Mine in the background. The mine is the largest primary producer of molybdenum in the world.


We also brought our snowboards. Here is Rillos carving in some untouched terrain...


...and here am I doing pretty much the same thing.

We also moved this huge boulder into place so Rillos could attempt to break a limb. He wasn't successful.
We skied in Breckenridge for a couple days. Svets and Keough were crazy enough to try out a couple table tops. Pretty flippin sweet. Here is Svets doing a 360.


And Keough enjoying his airtime...


Here is a picture of us, the Hennings and the Keoughs outside of the Winter's house in Silverthorne. Such a beautiful place.

And finally, Paige allowed me to partake in straightening her hair. Though she had all the confidence in the world, I just couldn't handle the pressure.

Thanks to Grammy for watching Dane while we were gone!! We missed him a ton, but it was nice to get away for a bit. It seemed like forever and we weren't exactly sure exactly how Dane would respond after not seeing us for a week. As you can see from the video below, we clearly missed Dane more than he missed us :-)

I loved the Olympic-esque mountain photos and the lesson on molybdenum but once again all of that is trumped by one simple video of Dane. Okay... Matt straightening Paige's hair is a close second. Im shocked she trusted you with her trademarked red locks.

It looks like you had a wonderful time & I love the Dane video. Hilarious! You look great Shelly. And that pic of you Matt with your feet in the air is funny.
