Here's what we did as a family this year:

January: on our way to Elko, Nevada we stopped at the salt flats along highway I-80. Anson especially was charmed by this salty wasteland.

April: we planned a surprise birthday for Ever's 5th birthday. She cried and said it was "perfect."

May: my kids celebrated Mother's Day with me on a warm day at Rock Canyon. One of my favorite places on this earth.

June: the best company in the world Bullfrog Spas agreed to give us a hot tub for a year. This would dramatically improve our family, my marriage and my general ability to RELAX.
