Jordan is 18!!

Jordan is 18 years old! (Three down one to go!) Happy Birthday Jordan! He is busy getting ready for graduation and a future career in the medical field. He is planning on taking EMT courses to get started. Good Luck - We Love you Jordan!

Jordan has a new short "more mature" haircut! He is thinking of going back to the old one though! Hard to adjust!

Long hair!

Easter Egg Hunts....Tradition!

We always have an Easter Egg Hunt/Spring Birthday Bash on the Peterson side of the family and a big wild East Egg Hunt in Grandma Olsen's big yard on the Olsen side of the family. I love family traditions. It is fun to see how the kids have grown up. So many of them have families of their own now!

Ryker loves finding eggs....We had to hunt eggs inside Cheryl's house. It was very cold!

Melissa and Ryker at Grandma Olsen's house. It was much warmer...

East Egg Hunting can be an extreme sport at Grandma Olsen's House.

Snowmobiling in the Spring!

We spent the weekend up at our cabin snowmobiling. Snowmobiling into the cabin on Friday evening was so beautiful. The sunset was awesome (but my camera wouldn't take picture, it said it was too cold). Saturday was sunny, the snow deep and the snowmobiling was awesome!

Brett and I are very cool snowmobilers....It is pretty fun to go without the kids...It is a lot less work!

This is me on my snowmobile. My husband bought this one for me for Mother's day (supposedly). He really just wanted to have another cool mountain machine...so I chose a nice bright yellow and named it sunshine (and added a really cute sticker).

Tracy and I were learning how to jump on our snowmobiles. I tried about 20 times and finally was brave enough to get some air. Brett said my jump was okay, but he was better. I told him to prove it....He tried, but went way too fast and ended up crashing on his face....Boys will always be boys!

Snow Angels...My sister and I always make snow angels...I have made them in lots of cool place (check out Two Tops up by Yellowstone!!)

The sun was awesome - I needed a suntan! It all works!

Sometimes you can go ice climbing in a deep, deep hole!!

Bottom Line....snowmobiling makes all this snow we are having now much easier to take!
