Our trip to Post Falls, Idaho

The Hardys - Mike, Stacy, Steven, Alysha, Ashley, Owen, Zak & Bella

We had fun on our trip to Post Falls, Idaho to visit our big boys (Steven & Richard). We stopped at the Columbia Park in Kennewick on the drive there for lunch and to play in the cool wooden fort. We found our way to the boy's house then checked in at the Shilo Inn in Coeur d'Alene. They kids all loved the hotel and wanted to live there with the indoor pool, hot tub, the cartoon network and free waffles in the mornings. What could be better?? We went to the lake, the park and shopped. We had a BBQ at Steven's mom's house for Steven's 20th birthday. Then went to Chinese for dinner the next evening. We had a nice trip but it is always nice to be back at home. :)

Easter Bunnies are coming!

We are getting baby bunnies for Easter. Alysha and I picked them out a couple weeks ago and they should be ready to pick up the end of March right before Easter. Alysha's is the brown and grey she is going to name him Bubbles. Ashley's is the middle white one, she is going to name her Mist. Owen's is the grey one and he wants to name his Thumper.

Mike and I built a bunny hutch then the kids helped finish it.

We finally made it up to Brundage to go skiing for our first time this year. The kids all did awesome skiing, I'm so proud of the them. Was a beautiful day and great weather.
