Raise Shields!

Along with the chocolate fudge mousse ice cream we bought at the Creamery last night, we bought BYU chocolate milk.  Big hit, is all I can say.

We woke up to snow and were out the door right after breakfast.

Jacob is a fan of standing on his sled as it goes down the hill.   This did not always go well.

David had success with a modified version of this and made many trips down the hill.

The snow was different than last week, so mass wasn't as critical.  Julia zoomed along.

Jacob's skills improved.

Nate flew down the hill.

Then things got a little crazy.

Dave was not part of any solution.

People were speaking Klingon as they fired phasers.

The truth was, we were all having a great time!

Carolyn joined us.  Her crew escaped in a shuttle pod.

Jacob came up with a photon torpedo.

Nate knew what was coming.

I have had the best two weeks!

Don't worry -- I ducked.

Later in the day we had lunch.  This was a filling meal everyone enjoyed, but it all came from the frozen section in Costco.

Julia has discovered edamame.

After lunch, Jacob invited me to play a game of pool.  Oh, so fun.  I creamed him.  After two weeks of playing several hours of pool every single day, this was my first real clear victory!

Yes, that's my 8 ball in the pocket!

The next game did not go any better for Jacob.  While that's his 8 ball, it went in with the cue ball.  I take victories any way they come.

I love playing with Julia.

So does Dave.

Other people upstairs played a complicate board game Ben had bought.

Later, we celebrated two birthdays.

Along with ice cream and BYU chocolate milk, Jacob and I bought A&W root beer last night.  We stuck it outside on the porch because there was no room in the fridge.  Jacob remembered it tonight.  He and Papa Ben enjoyed root beer floats, a fun treat at the end of a great vacation together.

BFTP: Hunting for the Russian Slides

My plan today was to scan in a box labeled "Ben's Russian Slides."  However, there were no Russian slides inside.  They were...
