We are in Crested Butte, CO this week with our best friends. 3 families - 6 kids. It's completely awesome. This is our 3rd spring break to have the pleasure of coming to Crested Butte. We are blessed to have friends who love us enough to invite us to stay in their family home. Blessed.
But, I can't tell you how many conversations have started out with "when did we (insert event name)? Was it last year? Two years ago? I really need to journal!" Seriously this has happened about 25 times in 3 days. I have this cool blog with *six* whole subscribers. And if I don't try to keep the bar too high, it really only takes about 5 minutes to knock out a day's events.
I really should journal our days. They are quite humorous, and when we wonder when something happened, we'll have it here to remember.
So to catch up on Spring Break. Sweet mercy it's gorgeous here. The mountains are breathtaking. I honestly don't know how one could question the existence of God when staring at the Rocky Mountains.

But I digress...
We arrived Monday in Gunnison, and made our way to Crested Butte. The dads and kids got fitted for skis. I don't ski. I want to ski, but it's a whip. I have not skied in 5 years after a horrible lesson with a very mean instructor. I did, however, catch up on some HGTV. Did you know Candy Spelling sold The Manor? We watched as she unloaded that enormous house full of hundreds of Madame Alexander dolls, Beanie Babies, furniture, art and other assorted junk. She had this huge storage facility full of her junk, but they had it all logged in a huge binder so she knows what is in each box, complete with pictures of each item. Unbelievable. She has so much junk. She's renovating a 16000 sq ft condo on the top of a high rise in LA. She's calling it the Manor in the Sky.
And our lives are much fuller for knowing this.
On Tuesday the dads and kids headed to the mountain for a little ski school. B is still too little to really enjoy skiing. He cried a little and wanted to go home.

So here's to journaling. At least we'll remember these two days!
