Beaver Backside March 26th 2011

I can't edit these short films taken with my phone but you get the idea. For the last Saturday in March, 2011 it was sure soft skiing on the backside of Beaver. We hiked to 1st peak twice to enjoy the fresh turns.

Alex catching some big air after the hike followed by the master Clark. They took 1st and 2nd at the Emmett Big Air Comp. (Sorry about the finger in the upper corner)

This is Bill followed by Bob. Notice Bill starting in the air... Not bad for the young kids!

Happy Birthday Grandpa! (Jake)

My pictures are strictly limited to Christmas & Spring Break because I take so many & have to back them up off of my laptop all the time. Here are some favorites in honor of my Dad's birthday today. Happy Birthday!

Grandpa playing "horsey" with Polly & Bruce. I think the horse was getting tired!

Erin is the Cracker Barrel checker champion!

Emmett Family ski day!

Ringing in the New Year with some Martinelli's (probably around 9:00 I might add)

Making sure Bruce knows how to make the elephant sound before he leaves. (See the video on facebook)

Happy Birthday Dad/Grandpa! We love you!

Shamrock Shenanigans at the Beav

It's always a party when the Illinois Emmetts roll into town for Spring Break.  New England Boiled Dinner and some spring skiing with the family.

 Bill, Tom and John  And yes, that is a Carhartt vest that YPR is sporting! Always one step ahead or three steps behind the fashion curve - you be the judge.

Jake loves to go hiking with his Pal Roland.  He only stopped twice to take his pulse.

 Bob and Jake. Someone had to volunteer to sweep.

 John didn't have any trouble.

Lily talking to Aunt Kristin

I called home to Highland  on Saturday and was able to talk with Lily.  She shared with me stories about her trip to California where she was able to visit Disneyland, Legoland, and riding in the new mini van.  Lucky for me Bob took some photos while she was talking to me.

Happy 18.25th Birthday Erin!

This post isn't just about Erin's 18-and-a-quarter birthday but also that....
BYU Wants Erin!

Since I missed her birthday back in December, I've been waiting for an 'Erin' once she got accepted into BYU.  Congratulations and well deserved. 

Thankfully Erin won't go bust.

I can't believe I have a BYU sticker on "my" car.

Erin will be following in Ben's footsteps 

As of June all of our kids will be in Utah. So sad. No, really it will be. 

Before she leaves for BYU, Erin still has a few more months of high school where she reigns as having most school spirit!
