'Biling "08

We were fortunate enough to have wonderful friends who'd invite us to go snowmobiling to their cabins. Last weekend the 16th, we went with Katrina and Michael to his family's cabin. The snow was packed down enough and the trail was great, so getting into the cabin wasn't too hard. We stayed Saturday to Monday. I don't think we did one thing all weekend. It was just nice to relax and hang out with great friends. Sunday night the moon was amazingly bright so we went for some moonlit rides. Monday we just played on this huge hill. Michael snowboarded down it, Kelly tubed down it and Katrina and I hung out and tubed on the smaller hills. I drove a snowmobile for the first time. It was easier than I thought it would be once I got the leaning down. Sunday was cold and windy. We tried to go out and play, but the dogs were whining too much. So was I. We hunkered down watched some movies, played the Wii. It was really a lot of fun. We took Harley with us. At first she wasn't sure if she liked all the cold and the two other bigs dogs, but once they started to play with her, she was all for it. She loved running in the snow, but would come over to me when her paws got too cold. What a little baby. But she felt like a big, outdoor dog. We had her ride with us on the mobile a couple of times. She sat in between me and Kelly and stayed there, to my amazement. She loved it.

This past weekend, Josh and Jessica invited us up to his family's cabin. We had a little bigger group this time. Josh and Jessica, me and Kel, Amanda and Chase and Jenny and Eric. Mostly Morgan boys, but we had fun. We got in around 8 Friday night. The trail was hard to find, but we made it up eventually. We all stayed up late just talking and the boys told stories about their crazy high school days. We slept in Saturday and chilled. Some went for a morning ride, then came back. We all went down to this meadow area and played, sledded and rode around for quite a while. Some old English man got lost. He skied all the way down from Powder Mountain. "Where the bloody hell am I?" It was awesome. So Eric was nice enough to take him back up. Chase tried to jump his mobile, but couldn't get the ski's in the air. I drove the mobile around for a bit. We all had a blast. We went back to the cabin, had lunch, then took off for home. I will admit it was kinda a random group, but we had fun. What a way to finish off a night with none other than shakes from Steph's.

Thank you to Josh and Michael for use of your cabins and great company. There were a lot of pictures so I just combined the weekends. I can't wait for summer to come, that's four-wheelin season, baby!

Happy Birthday Kelly!!

Today is Kelly's birthday. The big 2-5. An old man now, a quarter of a century old. He had to work today, but tonight we will probably go out to dinner and then we are stayin at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake for just a small get-away.
Kelly, I don't tell you enough how much I love and appreciate you. You certainly are the best thing that has happened to me. I won't get to sappy on the blog where everyone can read it, but know that I love you. Happy Birthday Sparky!!

Just some of my favorite Kelly pictures.
