Connor & Chloe's Wild Kratts Birthday Party!

Connor and Chloe love the show Wild Kratts on PBS. They love learning about different animals and are always telling me random "creature facts".
 So of course, we just had to do a Wild Kratts birthday party complete with Safari Joe and his animals!

Safari Joe asked Connor if he wanted a party hat so Connor jumped right up ready to get his "party hat". Turns out, the party hat was a giant tarantula!!
Connor loved it though!
There was a little turtle and a big turtle, some kind of dragon.
Chloe got a birthday kiss from a blue-tongued lizard and Connor got a birthday hug from a snake!
When Safari Joe brought out the biggest snake, all the kids scampered away and some even hid under the table! Cooper didn't know what to think!
The snake's name was Banana.
We even got to pet an alligator and hold a dove!
Connor and Chloe sang right along to Happy Birthday with everyone and blew out their candles as quick as they could so they could open their presents. Apparently, they had told all of their friends at school exactly what they wanted!

Ski Trip 2017!

A few weeks ago we flew to Keystone, Colorado with a few friends for a ski trip! We took the twins but left Cooper at home just because he is still too little for ski school and we really had no idea what to expect when skiing with kids!

It was an early morning starting at 4:00 to get up and get ready for our flight!
So this happened after we picked up our rental car...
We headed straight for the mountain to go snow tubing!
After you ride down the hill, you have to get on this moving carpet to get back up.  That was a little challenging for the twins.  They kept falling off!
The next morning, we got up and hurried off to Ski School!
They were so excited!
While the kids were in Ski School, we got to play!
The next day, we got up and did it all again!  Another day of Ski School and another day of play!
At night, we spent quality time with our friends...
On our final day of skiing, it was the twins birthday and we played with them all day on top of the mountain.  We practiced what we learned in Ski School and we played in the snow fort!
It's a lot of work skiing with kids!
That night, we celebrated turning 5 with everyone! 
Such a fun trip with lots of memories!!
