Birthday, Interrupted

Evy turned fourteen this week and celebrated her birthday by going to school, having a quick treat and then performing in the middle school musical that evening. It was pretty much the last event in the district before everything shut down.
Birthday Treat

Her birthday party is postponed until a later date so there is no cake picture yet. But more photos from her actual fourteenth birthday are on Flickr.

Winter Update

Winter has included a lot of activities so far, with most of them happening inside. The kids finally did get out in the snow earlier this month for some sled riding and snowball throwing.

Snow Smiles

We have also glow golfed, bowled and ice skated. And Brandon took the court with his first basketball team.

We also headed to the arena for the Monster Jam Triple Threat event (for the fourth straight year). If you're keeping track that's a full dozen threats. Brandon had a great time.

Virginia Trip

School starts a little late this year, so we were able to head to Virginia during the last week of August for a family vacation. We visited Busch Gardens, Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg.

Behind the Palace

We also played mini golf, shot some hoops and went swimming in the hotel pool. More photos from our Virginia trip are on Flickr.
