Spring Break Ski Trip

Nat and Michael and Jack and Leo picked up Halle from Grandma’s house  Thursday and came to Silverthorne to meet us for a Spring Break ski trip.  my good old Sequoia is nearing 250,000 miles.  Well….we got about 2 miles from our freeway exit and started hearing an awful squeaking noise.  We weren’t sure we…

Grand Canyon and Phoenix

For our yearly winter get away, we decided to hit up Phoenix again.  It’s cheap and easy to get to and we always have a great time.  We decided to switch things up a bit and get a check on the bucket list by hitting the Grand Canyon for a day.  And, wow!  We are…
