Saturday we rose early and made our way to Crystal Mountain for a ski outing. We met up with some friends from the boys' preschool and we all took our kids skiing - for our boys it was the first time. I think we're going to have some ski addicts on our hands - they picked it up amazingly quickly and then were begging to snowboard like "Uncle Gabe" and to ride the chairlift so they could do the "big hill" (aka double black).
After a hot cocoa break and a play in the snow, we made our way back to Seattle.
Quick showers and cleanup and we were out the door again Saturday evening for a holiday party at a friend from work's house. The party was awesome - tons of kids everywhere and great holiday cheer.
Sunday Matt, the boys, and I all did the Jingle Bell run in downtown Seattle. I pushed the boys in the stroller and I think this may have been one of their last stroller rides - they're getting giant! The run was fun, but to be honest a 5K isn't my favorite distance and it was much too crowded to go fast. The other racers were royals of walking 6-in-a-row.
After the race we made our way to other friends from work for a holiday brunch. The boys and their "buddy" Sasha were going coocoo jumping on beds, playing dress up, and then just running wild.
After all the hubub from the weekend we were too tired to cook Sunday evening so we made our way to my new favorite sushi place downtown Seattle. We caught the sushi happy hour so enjoyed some rolls for just $5.
Now we need a weekend to recover from our weekend!
