This weekend we packed up the minivan and headed west to surprise Kris for her birthday. I am forever indebted to Thomas and John for scheduling an entire afternoon of services at the Ivy Spa for Kris and I, followed by a great night out without the kiddos. What a treat! I am seriously considering surprising Kris every year on her birthday ;-) We are in the car on our way back home and I’m still thinking about the spa’s steam room…hmmmm….maybe we should turn around???

The guys were such troopers and took Sidney and Vivianne sledding on Saturday morning. Here’s a short video of them going down what they called the “big” hill.
