Snowing Tubing 2013

We went to the NC mountains in search of snow. We packed the boys in the car and headed to Blowing Rock NC.  We didn't find much snow, just small patches but enough to have a snowball fight at the mountain house.
We decided to head to downtown Blowing Rock for some dinner.  And had so much fun playing in the park.  We even got a rare family picture of all 5 of us.  
We went on the swings, I haven't been on a swing in I don't know how long?!  Everyone jumped off the swing as it was moving except me and Nick.  The older I get the more I don't like thrills like I use to. 
UNO rounded out the night. Nick was our winner.  He has come a long way when it comes to playing games.  He typically would come in last but he seems to have hit his stride when it comes to games, coming in first or second.  We always have good laughs.
Sunday it was off to HawksNest for some tubing.

We have one more trip planned before Nick heads into the Army this summer after high school graduation.  We are gonna miss him!!  Spring Break here we come.

Sickness has hit our house!

Sickness hit our household!  My poor sweet Justin had a fever for 6 days!  He was out of school for 5 days, Ryan only got a touch of it and was out of school one day.

They are both on the mend and feeling back and back to school  It took Justin 2 days to make it to a full day back at school but Monday was his first full day back.  Kids bounce back quickly! I'm ready for Spring!

Moving Toward 2nd Degree Black Belt

Ryan added another strip to his 1st degree black belt.  Nice ceremony, they even had the instructors breaking cement boards.  That is just crazy?!! It was so cool! So proud of this little guy!  He has put so much hard work and effort into it.

A day with the Aunt and Uncle

Last weekend I dropped Justin and Ryan off for a fun-filled lunch and afternoon with Uncle Craig and Aunt Becca! Not only did Ryan try roasted red peppers on his grilled pizza (and he liked it!), Justin said no way BUT they got to fly down the hardwood floor hallway in there socks and race!  Serious fun!

The aunt and uncle are always fun! Can you tell for the picture below?!
