Cam's photo shoot

I had to post these because hopefully you have had the experience of looking through your pics on your camera or phone and find that someone has gotten a hold of it and had a good time. I think she was taking a picture of her lost tooth...can't really tell.

We're getting pretty good at this...well some of us.

We went skiing for our first time over New Year's and we did pretty good. Tom had been skiing before and was actually pretty good but the rest of us were first timers. The girls both wanted to snowboard so we convinced our bro-in-law and sis-in-law (thanks Bart and Kelly) who are both very good to come and teach the girls, and Tom attempted to teach me. I thought this would cause a few fights with Tom getting frustrated with me and me not being very good but I did ok. I have to admit I did have an embarrasing fall when we first got there on the teaching hill going up the hill on a "people mover" I fell right into a hole and lost one ski and my poles, Tom did get my pole but just kept moving on, I think pretending he didn't know me, but it got better as the day went on. The girls did awesome and so we decided to go again. This time the girls did awesome and improved a ton I stayed pretty much the same, I'm kinda a chicken in my old age I guess, but I had a lot of fun. Rylee can almost beat Tom down the big hills and Cam can now go down without falling more than a couple times. It is a great family activity and the girls are hooked. I had to put this pic of Rylee falling because I think it may have been the only time she did. It was nice and warm which explains Tom's blinding sweatshirt but it sure made it easy to spot him.

Our trip to Barbados this summer

Tom had a job in Barbados this summer and we all got to go for 10 weeks to play on the beach, well Tom actually had to work part of the time. The best part of the trip for Tom was golfing at Sandy Lane, the golf course where Tiger Woods was married, he loved it! It was a great experience for our family. We met many great people and had a blast together.

New to this whole thing...

As of about 4 weeks ago I had hear of blogging but didn't really know what it was. Thanks to some of my talented friends I am now attempting to be part of this new world of blogging, we'll see how this goes...more to follow soon...
