Everett's B-day in the Mountains

Everett Vee turned 7 years old this month. Happy Birthday Everett!

We all headed up north for a much anticipated celebration that included a day of sledding!

Here is the handsome Birthday boy. He LOVES trains! I think that is where Simon picked up his love for trains. Everett got a new model train for his b-day and he and Simon played with it until the batteries died.

As I mentioned, Everett wanted to go sledding for his birthday this year. So. . . we got the boys all bundled up and headed out to the old ski run up by Sunrise.

Here is little Ryan. (I was so happy to find baby gloves, no thumbs).

Once we got the the ski run, much to our dismay, we ran into freezing cold wind. Ryan was asleep so I stayed in the car with him while Jeremiah and Karissa braved the cold and took Simon and Keaton up onto the mountain to sled. Ryan finally woke up and I got him all bundled up to face the horrible winds. He was completely covered from his head to his feet. Then I strapped him into the snugglie baby carrier and we headed up the mountian. The wind was so cold it took my breath away and I had to really concentrate to get my footing right so I wouldn't slip on the ice. We finally made it to the mountian where the trees were tall enough to block the charging winds. Just then Jeremiah came down to meet me. "Let's go" he said. I didn't know if he was joking or if he was crazy so I just gave him a perplexed look. "Veronica just called and they want to go down the road to another snow drift."

"What!?" I squeaked. I had finally made it all the way to the mountain and now I had to turn around and go all the way back. So we all hiked back to the cars and headed down the road. I'm glad that Simon got to sled down the hill at the ski run because after that he was wet, cold, and cranky and we couldn't get him back out of the car.

After a few more minutes in the cold we all headed back home for cake and ice cream! yum!

Here is Si sporting his frosting 'stache.

And we got to spend some good quality time with Grandma and Grandpa Udall

And Marie and Steve were there too.
