Ashling's Birthday Party

For Ashling's birthday party we took 3 of her friends roller skating with us.  All the kids really enjoyed it and wanted to stay forever!  I think one of Ashling's favorite things to do is to roller blade.

Happy Birthday Ashling

Ashling turned 9 years old.  We always open presents in the morning and Ashling was very excited to find out that she  got a kindle! Cameron made her crapes for breakfast per her request.  Later that day we took her to lunch before Cameron had to leave for Salt Lake.  It was a fun day for her.

Happy Birthday Cameron

Happy 35th Cameron!  For his birthday we bought him a used road bike!  He was pretty excited!  For our first ride we went to red rocks and rode around the roads there.  The first 4-5 miles is pretty steep and right away I learned that I would never again be able to keep up with Cameron.  (I knew I was better of when he had a mountain bike.)  He rode up the hill quickly and I was just eating the remnants of his dust.  But we both really enjoy his new bike and it seems to work well for him.

On his actual birthday the girls planned to make breakfast so I got up and took Cameron on a hike.  When we got back they had breakfast all ready for him.  Then he opened presents and we surprised him by getting him some spandex bike shorts, a sleeping bag and a pillow!  He is pretty set for the summer now!

The girls also spoiled him for lunch and made that for him also.  It is nice to have daughters to share in the spoiling!

Mammoth Skiing

Cameron and I were able to get in one last ski trip up to Mammoth before the end of the season.  It was just the two of us and we woke up at 3:30 am to make it up there.  We had to pull over for a short nap about sunrise but still managed to get there in plenty of time for skiing.  We both had our own idea of what a perfect ski day would look like so we agreed to meet for lunch after skiing alone for a few hours.  

I really enjoyed my time alone and found that I could ski on just about any slope I chose!  I felt a lot better about my skiing abilities after this day and was glad to end it on such a good note.  Cameron enjoyed his time too and also learned that he really likes his skis a lot more than the ones he rented.  (our skis were left in Utah because we didn't think we would use them again this year but were surprised with a great storm that made us want to go up.)
