Winter Carnival and Outside Play

on February 12, 2018

When you write “good morning” and realize it is the afternoon…..that’s how you know it is Monday 😉 We had a pretty nice weekend over here and are spending the day cleaning things up and getting ready for the rest of the week!

The weekend started on Friday…

Brooke and I headed into town in the morning to see some of the snow sculptures and hit up the pool! We had a lovely time and enjoyed seeing what some of the people in our town created!

Brooke was really impressed and (per usual) refused to look at the camera. Please excuse the pool hair.





We made it home in time to prep some dinner and relax a bit before Ken’s parents arrived. We had a nice evening hanging out and watching some Olympic action (which we kind of did all weekend…or at least when we were inside!).

On Saturday, we had breakfast and then I set out for 6 miles of running in the wind. Going out was nice and warm, but coming back in the headwind was rough! I literally had to stop and face the other direction to defrost my face 4 times!

Once home, I showered and then we all loaded up to check out some action at the Winter Carnival. It was pretty incredible! These kids were fearless! Not sure that I want to get towed behind a horse on chunky snow?!?!


Brooke thought it was pretty cool!




We ventured home to warm up and have some lunch before heading out into the yard for some snowy playtime! The boys spent the afternoon working on a welding project (it’s going to be awesome!!).

After a quick (and windy) dip in the hot tub, we went back into town for dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Town was pretty nuts, so we had a bit of a wait, but it was worth it (as always). We finished up quickly and headed into the crowd. We were lucky and found a great place to park to watch the firework show. Brooke was very excited and they didnt disappoint!

Sunday started with breakfast and Church. We made it home in time for some lunch before heading out to play on the cross country skis!! It was awesome! The weather was prefect, the snow conditions were phenomenal and we all had a great time!


Nice rig! And a killer workout for Ken 😉


The views!


Oh hey, GrandBob!


Brooke wore her skis and crushed the descents.


Then they figured out that this was a great mode of transport…all she needs is a water ski handle!!


Outside is my happy place!!


Love my little family!!


Safe to say we all had a good time!!


And one with Jasper 😉


Seriously, awesome. She kept asking for a tow back up to come down the steep parts!


The boy!


It was an amazing day! Followed it up with a delicious dinner and then it was time for bed! I had a rough time falling asleep and Brooke had me up at 12:15 am and then I was back up at 4, so the alarm at 5:30 was a bit brutal. BUT I dragged my behind out of bed and hit the bike trainer with Ken. I did 45 minutes of spinning and 10 minutes of weights before heading back to up to get breakfast going. We said goodbye to Ken and then GrandBob and Nene and spent the morning cleaning up the house. Around 10:15 I jumped on the treadmill for 4 miles at around a 8:20 pace. I planned to run outside in the snow, but it was coming down pretty hard and Brooke insisted I head to the basement instead.

Pretty happy to see this white stuff!


Pretty jealous of this guy…that is what I would like to be doing today!



Pretty low key rest of the day for us over here! Not sad about it!

Hope that you got to play outside this weekend! Have any Valentine’s Day plans this week??
