Last week has been titled Tired Legs Week. It got the name because I indeed had tired legs at all times during the week 🙂 We went sledding, snowboarding, and skating! I took a recovery day between each activity. It was a fun but tiring week. I must be getting OLD ’cause I’m pretty sure I could have done all 3 of those activities in 1 day back in my high school/college prime :).
Monday was a holiday but Ben had to work so I met up with Ryan and Kelsey and we took the kids sledding at Rock Canyon Park. It WAS AWESOME! The sledding was great. Benji, Packer and Cali did awesome. They just grabbed a sled and went for it over and over again. The hill was well groomed and the walk back up was packed down so it was easy sledding. I pictured myself holding kids and everyone crying and being wimpy and only lasting a run or two. Rose did get taken out on her first run and decided it was too scary but she just watched from the top and pushed my sled down at least 20 times. Tara was nice enough to take Raymond for me so I didn’t have to bundle him up and try to keep him happy. It was by far the best sledding this little family has done. We spent the rest of the day with my family. Waffles and games at our house. Joel and Brady and company came after work and Ben came after his work at 9:30 🙁
Tuesday was recovery and scouts and back to our regular schedule except Ben had another 15 hour day (blah). LaNell came and played and had dinner with us so that helped switch it up a little. On Wednesday Ben had work meetings all morning and then I met up with him around noon and we went snowboarding at Sundance with some of his co-workers. I hadn’t been on the slopes for 3 years! So it was good to be there and the sun really did come out up there above the inversion. I was able to make it down the mountain without falling but I wasn’t doing any jumps or funny stuff. Eventually our legs started to give out and we crawled back to the van to head home before our time was up. Wimpy but Fun and when you have 5 dependents waiting foryou at home it’s easier to not push yourself beyond your limits!
Thursday and Friday are a blurr. I’m sure I cleaned the same living room and kitchen multiple times and changed lots of diapers and tried to get nap time in and… Then for date night we went to my favorite Thai restaurant with Michelle and Udine. And then we went to Classic Skating to try my new roller skates! I barely made it around the track my first time. My legs were shaking, my ankles were trying to bend and it was just painful but… I stuck with it and started to get a feel for real skates. Ben was also a newby on skates and used Raymond’s stroller to keep his balance. So, when did roller blades go out of style? Everyone at the skating rink was wearing roller skates. I think 3 people had blades on. In my day we paid 3$ extra to get the blades. Anyway it was a fun date night and then I was off to my 11:30pm soccer game. And Saturday evening Ben and I lost another co-ed soccer game but we had tone of fun and Ben had a sweet goal this time.
Sunday we were able to have my 5 siblings over that live here in Utah. We still get together most Sundays. Ben still cooks for all of us. Joel’s fiance Megan has got her foot in the door though and has contributed some delicious sides and desserts. We are enjoying getting to know her better before the March 30th wedding. She is great. It’s good to have Kelsey back from China and the brothers are always good for some laughs. Today we have the 4 Falabella kids coming to stay for the week! My kids are bouncing off the walls excited. I think it is going to be a good chill week with lots of mouths to feed. I am out of time. No pictures, sorry.
