Ski Trip Time

Leaving for ski vacation so late in the season, we weren't sure whether we'd even have snow once we got up to the resort. But these trees greeted us on our way up. As you can see in the next picture, though, there wasn't much snow left! It was mostly slush by the end of the week.

We also had some dark clouds and hailstorms, but that didn't deter our skiers for long.

Benjamin earned his third star level, and Noah his second.

Starting Out Right

Any trip that starts out this way has to go right, doesn't it? We spent the night in Dijon on our way to the mountains, and saw an American-themed diner near our hotel. So of course we had to stop for the photo op before we continued on our way! (The diner wasn't open yet when we left, so we couldn't test whether the food was authentic or not!)

Intrepid Egg-Hutners

Our Easter Egg Hunt this year was chilly, but not rained out. Our egg-hunters were pretty evenly matched in their skills.

But we might have to work on hiding the eggs a little better next year...

Noah turned 8 this year. He decorated his own cake to share at school:

And his cake for home, too:
He was pretty happy with a Lego Minecraft set, a small Lego Star Wars set, and some little toy soldiers.
