the Crocus' are blooming AND

So to start I still love racing and I think Brady might too. Race results for today were very satisfying considering I almost lost it and recovered. I placed 7th for the day which moved me to 11th overall woohoo. It was a very hard challenging course which I am proud of the race-crew for making it is more fun when it is a challenge.

Thomas has also been racing which I have mentioned I believe. He had another one this weekend. We are not sure of the results but we will know this Sunday. The family went and skied this weekend and Brady even raced. (not timed but was able to go around the gates) He did the first 3 backward I showed him the ways to go around and then got out of the way and he did really well he was carving and scooting around it was really cute. I couldn't tell if he was smiling, but he was definitely concentrating.

We have gotten back into geocaching we are getting stumped by some but finding others so a good time is being had.

The crocus' are popping up and so are the Tulips. I love spring. Especially today up skiing it snowed 7 inches and then the sun came out and it was GORGEOUS.
Thank you Mother Nature.

I am sorry this is cryptic and short but once again it is getting late and I need to cook dinner. I wanted to get this info out there to my 3 readers. Love you Silke. Thanks again for our fun phone call.

My Best Birthday

So I admit I have the best two little boys in the world. The day started actually the night before. T. told me that he wanted to give me a surprise. I was not allowed to go into the car or open my lunch box. OK. It then continued and I was not allowed to leave my bed. He and his brother had been setting something up on the floor and I couldn't peek. So I was good and didn't peek. I am awoken at 4:30am to hearing T's alarm going off. He proceeds to very quietly come into my room and place the bed tray over my sleeping form. As I wake up he places a Kit-Kat, a breakfast bar and 2 candy canes on the tray, which had been placed in a Tupperware container the night before. He also gives me one half of Battleship he has the other half and jumps up onto the bed. The kid was bursting from excitement he was so happy. I gave him a huge hug and said buddy we don't have to be up for an hour (work day) why don't we go back to bed. He agrees and we fall back asleep and wake up when my alarm goes off.
The day proceeds as normal. I have an I Love You note in my lunchbox and B. gave me a breakfast bar. He made sure I knew it was from him.
I get off work and head down to my parents house. Dad has picked T. up from school and they have set up a treasure hunt in the house. Tom made all the signs and again is bursting with pride.
It made it all worth while that my hubby wasn't home until Saturday night.
