What we've been up to

I have a lot of updates to cover. I was shocked to see how long it had been since I had updated the blog. Sorry.
Since I last wrote anything, Luke has traveled to Italy to compete in the World Ski mountaineer Championships. He did well. He placed 19th overall against the other competitors and was the first US finisher in the events he competed in. Job well done Luke. He also competed at the Wasatch Powder Keg and won first place. Good job again, Luke.
After getting home from Italy, Luke then finished up preparations to go to Peru with Idaho Condor on a humanitarian trip. He spent time there over spring break with a large group that provided medical and dental services to remote villages around Cuzco, Peru.
Now that he is home, we are in training mode for running. Let's hope spring decides to come soon so it will be funner to run outside.

Brynlee took ski lessons this year. I was a little worried about her riding the lift without Luke or I but she was fine. It was fun watching her learn to ski. By the end of the lessons she was going all by herself and wanted to straight-line it for the bottom of the chairlift, from the top. For being sometimes timed, she was a little too fearless.

Chlöe is getting so big SO FAST. She will be 7 months old on the 13th. I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. She is still an awesome little girl, I love her to pieces. She is so easy going and happy. She has rolled over a few times but is mostly mastering the art of sitting and drooling.

For Christmas Luke bought me a new DSLR camera! I couldn't believe it, and I am so thankful for him and that he was willing to spoil me and get me a nice camera. It has been fun taking good photos of the girls. Hopefully I'll get better, but for now these are some fun photos of the girls I have played with. It's fun being able to take photos of them together, while they like each other :)
