Chickadee Rock Stars





H & Dad got a few, 6, Chickadee runs in, before they had to leave early to attend a skating party for H and D.O.'s party for the others. O was still ailing and so missed the ski day. But O, P, & I did have a great time at Bailey's swim meet in Park City (she rocks!). Then, I finally caved into this flu, cold, strep thing and ailed for awhile. Since O was still ailing after a long winter's nap, the family missed D.O.'s birthday, but there was no way H was going to miss his friend's party, and since I am able to decently ice skate (thanks to lessons and inspriration from Megan the Ice Skate Queen competitor, she really did!) I took H for his first time on the thin blades of steel. After a few H-frustrated and grumpy rounds, he went out on his own, and rocked the place. (And I was no longer blamed for every fall or near-fall or non-catch or everything!). It was swell. And aside from a back-wrenching team fall and some tight skate boots, all was well and we can't wait to go again! So, you think I am done and in need of a lot of ibuprofen and Nyquil, NO! AK and I went on a hot date, accompanied by the Taylors to cheer for Stanford and JB's Stanford Volleyball Coach (who is now the Head Coach), as they beat #1 BYU in 3 straight sets! It was awesome! And we loved being 4 of 6 total fans (all friends of the Coach and in the first 5 rows) in the stadium of 3,000. It was really fun, and especially fun to see AK root against the BYU and even wearing red for the occasion. What a rebel.

Fun to see that you were in Newport! I love that place so much, I feel like it's my home town too...Even though it totally isn't. Back from Hawaii & we totally want to move away. I am thinking Newport is the place to be.

ASK may have worn red and cheered but I think he's true blue at heart. Fun post, love the photos so much, so sorry you and O are still sick. Come down south for the cure! I'm a good nurse.
