Bike Riding

It seems like Summer is finally here and the boys are happy to ride their bikes everyday. 

Zack is figuring out his bike and is doing really well. He can pedal all by himself most of the way to the park a block away from our house and back.

Levi loves riding his bike and is just about as fast as Jakob now. Levi wants to ride to the park and back or behind our house on the bike path all by himself. He loves the independence of riding his bike!

A Week in Whistler BC

Michael and I just spent a week in Whistler, BC for our 10th Anniversary! We had a busy, but fantastic time. We drove to Canmore the first night and then headed out to Whistler from there. On the way home we drove straight back through Jasper. It was around a 13 hour drive.

Our hotel was in the perfect location, right in Whistler Village. It was close to all the shops and restaurants, next to the ski hill, across the street from the golf course and a short walk to the Olympic areas!!

The Olympic circles!!!

Golfing - right in front of our hotel. I got new golf clubs for my birthday this year and I was excited to use them already!

Swimming and hot tub after a long day of skiing or hiking or golfing:

I skied and Michael snowboarded the Whistler/Blackcomb mountain and glacier. It was amazing!! The ski hill is HUGE. It was +20C on the hill that day, so it was a little warm and while there was a lot of snow, it was quite sticky and heavy. We both were pretty tired after a full day of skiing!!

 The very top of the mountain, 7347 ft elevation.

10 years!!!

Levi's Friend Party

For Levi's 6th birthday party, with his friends from school, they went to a cooking class. The kids had a lot of fun and it was a great birthday party! It was so organized and well run, the kids were busy the whole time. Michael and I were there to help the kids with their pizzas & cakes, but other than that we didn't have to do a thing! It was fantastic!!

They started off by making their own individual pizzas. They stretched the dough themselves and added the sauce, toppings and cheese.

 While the pizzas were cooking the kids made fruit kabobs. They got to put all kinds of fruit and mini marshmallows on their kabobs!

After the kids ate their fruit kabobs and were waiting for their pizzas to cool, they all got to decorate their own little cake to take home! Levi picked yellow icing and the kids all got gummies and other stuff to decorate their little cakes!

All Levi's friends singing Happy Birthday and Levi blowing out his 6 candles!!

 The kids had so much fun, the birthday party was a big success!
