Beautiful Bluebonnets

Sadly I have never taken Lyndon's picture with bluebonnets....I'm really not sure why.....probably fearful of snakes, I guess.  After seeing a friend's pictures of her girls in bluebonnets with a rolling highway I was eager to take Lyndon on his 1st bluebonnet shooting.  I knew it must be the cemetery road with the hills.  I had my snake protector come with us!  Luckily we saw thousands of bluebonnets, one beautiful road, and ZERO snakes!

If you look closely you can see a small black speck on the left of the road-----our dear friend.....running her hills on a Sunday afternoon.  I knew it must be her with her car parked on the top of the hill.  It was fun to have her in the pic.

Lyndon took the last 3 pictures.

Basketball Wrap-Up

Lyndon played his last basketball game for the year yesterday.

Watching for the rebound.

Lyndon played Grant's team.  They did a great job and Grant is quite the ball handler!

Lyndon getting aggressive for a jump ball.

Lyndon did a great job on defense.  His defense ability has definitely improved a lot!

Grant sinking both of his free throw shots!  Yeah, Grant!

Lyndon's team minus one.

Lyndon's wonderful coaches mother-in-law treated the team to DQ after the game.

The boys had fun eating a visiting!

The whole team together!

Lyndon improved a lot over the course of the season and even made a few steals and baskets!  Lyndon was very fortunate to have an AWESOME coach and some great role models on the team as well.

Cousin Time and Basketball

Lyndon, Carl, and Aubrey played together NONSTOP from the time we pulled into town from Keystone.  They stayed at Momma's two nights and our house two nights.  I am glad Lyndon gets to have so much playtime with his cousins.  Sadly he doesn't get to see them as much as I'd like.  I have great memories of playing with my cousins as a child-on both sides of the family!

It seems impossible for me to get a decent picture of Lyndon playing basketball.  Maybe in the last two games....

Keystone, Colorado

My attempt to capture the fireworks on the Summit.

 We headed to Keystone for Spring Break this year.  Ricky and Charlotte stayed with us which was a lot of fun.  Lyndon and a friend have been creating a business and Lyndon brought it along on the trip.  This was his attempt to get shopers.

 Of course he made several sales.

The first place I booked sold so we were moved to this place which wasn't quiet as nice, but it did have an extra bedroom-not that we needed one, but.....

Lyndon LOVED the tub!

The room Lyndon picked out!

Waiting to go to the hot tub!

The kitchen in the 1st place was AWESOME!  I missed that for sure.

When we first arrived of course I had to unpack and get everything situated and Lyndon wanted to shovel all of the snow off of the balcony, so that is what he did.

Frozen waterfalls.


Kyle came to ski the first day.

My little skier!

Lyndon worked all week on his 'snow spray'.  He became very good at it and I was usually his target. :-)

Our family group & John.

We night skied for the first time and it was a lot of fun-most people didn't ski at night so it left the slopes empty for us.  We stopped at the bottom of each hill to let everyone catch up.

Cody pointing the way!

Fun in the Gondola.

Lyndon's silly pic.

Family pictures!

The 2nd skier is Lyndon skiing down his hill!
  Several other families from our hometown were also in Keystone and it was fun to meet up with them as well.  We had a lot of fun and can't wait to see where we will get to go next year.
