In my round-up last week I mentioned that I was finally going to make it up and go snowboarding. Well there was still a lack of snow so I decided to wait. The resorts in Summit County got up to 11 inches of snow in the last 24 hours so I am definitely heading up either tomorrow or Tuesday. Last year I had 25 days on the mountain so I have a little bit of catching up to do if I want to reach that number again this year.
As for the baby, Colette is doing awesome. At only 5 weeks we can tell that she is going to be quite the dancer. When the music is on, her legs really start moving. We got her social security card yesterday so now all we need to do is get her passport before it’s time to start planning her first vacation.
