Mt Bachelor!

So, Amy's parents rent a house every year over President's Day Week in Sun River and invite all their kids and families to join the fun.  This year, we were invited to join in on the fun... and of course, we said yes.  I am never one to pass up good things.  So, let the road trip begin.  I love road trips.  Thankfully, Maeve is a willing participant.  We caravanned with Brent, Amy, Bennett, and Clara....

 Mile 65... an abrupt stop on the side of the highway.  Clara puked all over herself and her carseat.  Nice, Clara....  Thankfully we had brought our spare carseat and the Jonesies didn't have to enjoy the lovely aroma for the remaining 6.5 hours of the trip.  ha.


Another pull over to the side of the road... this time it was an emergent wildlife tour.  Apparently there were sheep or deer or something on the hillside.  Ummm... okay. 


At this point Amy says, "Welcome to my life..."  ha ha. 


Maeve's trying to figure out what the heck is going on... 


Ahhhhhhhh.... 


So, we had grand plans to ski with Maeve and Bennett both days on the hill, but they had different grand plans... and they did not include skiing.  Snot and tears were prevalent and therefore Amy drove both kids back down to the mountain to Grandma, and we enjoyed 1 1/2 glorious days of grown up skiing.  Oh, how I've missed skiing...  It was awesome. 

Who's the rock star in this story??  Amy's mom - Jean (or Eugene, if you ask Maeve)...  She watched 1-newly 4 year old, 2- 3 year olds, and 3- 1.5 year olds all by herself.   


No, Jean... we came right home after skiing.  We swear...   


I have to say... the kids were really good and had a lot of fun together...  (At least I think they were mostly good... but, then again, we were skiing half the time).  ha


Road trip home... 


At some point Maeve had control of my phone and realized she could just hold the camera button down... she took hundreds of beautiful pictures this way... 


At least she was happy.  

7.5 hour trip each way was really good.  We listened to countless tunes/audio books and resorted to the iPad on the last hour of each day.  All in all, a success.  Good thing.  We're road tripping again this weekend :-)

Thank you Lain and Jean for letting us join in on the family fun...
