March 2013: Love Letter

This is my love letter to them.
This blog you see
captures what
I may forget to whisper
with gratitude
in their ears
as they fall asleep.
That we laughed.
That we fought.
That we sipped lemonade 
at the farmers market.
That we ate bowls of sprinkles 
and watched baseball games.
That we swung from every swing 
at every park in town.
That we loved.
Oh how we loved.

February 2013.... Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Our First Family Ski Trip

Steamboat Springs, Colorado.... 2013

We had such a incredible family vacation.... the kids had so many new experiences and they did great with each one.....from the flying.... to the snow.... to bulky ski clothes & snow boots.... to skiing & ski school.  Greg and I couldn't stop talking about how, overall.... it was such a nice trip.  We shared the experience with another family.... The Pabalans.
Christopher and Grace are their little ones, and boy do our children love them!
The weather was amazing.... the snow perfect.  Greg and I got to ski with Ramon and Gina, while the kids attended ski school and then the late afternoons were filled with family time.... skiing... making snowmen... sledding.... hot tubbing....and of course,
cookies and hot chocolate.
We also experienced tubing and two horse drawn sleigh rides.

We are already talking about the ski trip for 2014.

Having three little ones is an incredible experience..... starting to take family vacations together and realizing we have this FAMILY.... there are no words for that.....
We are so unbelievably blessed.
