Happy Valentine's Day!

My gift to Christi this year?  Sending her off with two handsome young men for a ski trip!  Christi went down to tuck Taylor and Parker into bed last night.  She told them that I had given her a really big Valentine's Day present.  The boys' faces were less than enthusiastic.  "A bed and breakfast?"

"No," she responded.  "Just a hotel.  But it's for two nights."

The boys tried to mask their disappointment.  (Believe it or not, our kids don't like it when we go out of town.)  They were very sweet and expressed happiness for Christi and me.  Then Christi told them that she was taking the two of them for a ski trip.  I was upstairs at the time, but it was not hard to determine just when the big reveal took place.  Parker let out a holler that could be heard two streets down and then came pounding up the stairs to give me a big hug and a thank you.

Anyway, they're out on the town tonight and going skiing tomorrow.  Have fun, y'all!  I love you:)



  1. Gosh, you're a good dad. What would it take for you to adopt me?



    1. Give it a few more years and who know where your mental faculties will be? We may have you living with us yet...:)

  2. Two adults, age 35 & 36, & a 4 year old here! All available for adoption! :) We are living & breathing the Olympics right now & we have heard you have some decent skiing in Utah! Ha! My husband is ready to move us all to Park City! :)
