We got Becky & Brian here for 24 hours last week; we just talked and relaxed and played with the kids.

Rosalie's Birthday at Killington

Mike & Bekah and the kids come out to Killington for Rosalie's birthday every year.  This year the big girls did a ski lesson while we skied with the middle two at Sunrise.  Watching Emily and Rosalie run to each other and just both talk nonstop at each other for the first 20 minutes they are together... it's priceless.  All the kids had a great time playing at the condo, eating cake, playing in a fort under the table, swimming, and just being together.  

reunited :)

Occum Pond Party

There hasn't been a lot to report in February, but we have had a few fun things.  We dragged ourselves out of the house a few Saturdays ago to catch the tail end of the Occum Pond party -- which turned out to be really quite impressive.  The pond was full of people and there were a number of ice sculptures along the side, including some fun ice slides.  The girls had a blast, and we've actually been back twice since.  Sadly, with one day of warm weather and pouring rain last week, the castle is now a ruins and the slides were taken apart since they were no longer safe.
