quick trip to the foothills!

Last weekend we made a spontaneous trip to visit long-time friends once more before we depart. We lounged around the house (in our jammies!) while the kids bonded, ate delicious holiday leftovers (sinful cookies too) and played a few rousing games of Settlers of Catan. What could be better?
Playing Settlers has recently triggered a renewal of love for the game. We have played two more games since, and even Asia (5yrs) is becoming a strategic trader & serious player. You can't start too young.

It was wonderful to spend time with our pals and just be mellow together. The kids loved making Josiah laugh, and playing outside together. Asia found a new love for basketball, and she helped Josiah slam dunk a few. Thanks P-clan for the incredible hospitality & laughs! We miss you guys already!!
