Dipping Strawberries

One of Stefans favorite things to do is dip strawberries in chocolate! Last year for Stephanie's birthday(2007) Eric bought her a 5 gallon bucket of ganache! so we love to dip different things in it and use it in recipes. Anyways...we bought two things of strawberries this year for valentines day and these strawberries were huge! Janine as you can see doesn't mind being a mess while she eats. Stefan on the other hand is a lot cleaner.

Cross-Country Skiing

This past Saturday Eric and I went cross country skiing up at Soldier Hollow and got a babysitter for the kids. We had a great time. We of course took lessons and are so glad we did! We wouldn't have even known what to do. We haven't been skiing since middle school. We understand we are on the "loser chain" for living with snow our whole lives and not skiing or snowboarding. But things are looking up for us! (lol) After our lesson we (in our minds) thought we were taking the shortest trail, however we later realized as we were looking off in the distance and could kind of see the lodge! oh ya you guessed right we took the longest trail Soldier Hollow had!! Only the two of us woulld do something like that! The funniest thing. At the end we were just trying to survive and didn't care of improving technique or anything. After returning we ate lunch and regained some energy and went out again. On a much shorter trail of course. Next time we will be better. What great adventures We always have together. life is never boring.
