Hanalei got to meet Great Grandma Rueckert
Thanks to Rusty's mom watching Hanalei, we were able to play. Not just snowbaording but Hockey too in their frozen lake! Rusty and I were the lasts ones off the mountain!
This is the cabin we stayed at. It was beautiful the whole time we were there. We played games and did some sledding.
These guys might look tough but they are push overs.
We learned a new game about beans. It was a ton of fun!
Nestor's brother Miguel came with his wife Lacey and their baby Vander.
Rusty always refers to Miguel as his brother. It was fun to see them.
Hanalei in deep thought as she explored this winter wonderland
She was happy to be outside even though she had to be bundled in her bear suit from aunt Sallie and her beanie from Granny.
Parker tasting a delicious ball
Carson was pretty fearless on the sled
Asher would rather play with the ice sickles than go down that hill
This is where Brielle hung out most of the trip, she looks warm and chubby!
After all the fun in the mountains we had to rush back for Brielle's special day. She was getting blessed.
Cousins are too much fun!
Hanalei with her Aunt Spring. Notice how focused she is on that object.
"I think I could fit that in my mouth."
To the founders of the family! Thanks for a great trip! And for no broken bones.

On the Move

Hanalei has been climbing on everything. She is so stinkin cute. Many of you know we have been showing her baby signing time to help her talk to us. She loves it but doesn't sign anything yet. She did make up her own sign for I want to climb or get on that. She lifts her little leg up and holds it there. Cracks me up every time!
Here is a video I made of some of her new adventures!
