I'll admit it: I did not know that was a word before yesterday.

Soon-to-be-Uncle Duane was confirmed at Trinity Sunday, so we attended the service and had a fun lunch in the school gym after to celebrate!

You will be forgiven for thinking the only things the kids did were pull each other around on scooters and swing from ropes, that's just all we managed to get pictures of them doing. There were also frisbees.

Cold in Collins

When we were about halfway to Collins Saturday, on our way to spend some time out in the snow with Aunt Sarah and soon-to-be-Uncle Duane, Rebekah asked what state we were in. Point is, it's a bit of a drive, but sadly, it is not so far away that February was any warmer when we arrived.

So we gathered our snow gear and headed outside!

 (Duane pulled the kids around in tubes with the 4-wheeler)

 (Lisa got in on the action, too!)

That was the last picture of Rebekah before she bailed out and went back inside with Abby and Lisa; she wasn't even really trying to look happy anymore. The rest of us took a hike to the creek!

Needless to say, the girls were all pretty wiped out that night. (Their cousin Hayden, on the other hand...)
