Scotty and Erica spent two nights with us here and Paula, Graham, Baxter & little Lani (3months old) came for dinner each nigh. Scotty cooked a massive Jambalaya and ruled supreme in the kitchen
Waitangi Day and our Wedding anniversary we were basically snowed in and house bound which isn't to bad when you have a house of this size and a lady who comes to stock up the fridge with food and alcohol each day! The snowfall was so big it even closed the I-70 which goes to Denver for nearly 2 days.
We celebrated Spuds 43rd birthday by taking the kids on a 6 mile snowshoe excursion, 3 mile of it all uphill (no skiing again as this time they closed the mountain due to high winds, first time in 16 years) then a massive birthday dinner complete with a snowboarder chocolate cake with Paula, Graham, Baxter and Lani. Bernadette and Doug were a no show due the road situation.
Our last day here come around very very quickly I must say. Grant, Doug, Graham, Baxter and the girls had a great ski day up Beaver Creek while Bernadette and I caught up on our Scrabble fix. We then had a legendary Sunday (on Saturday night) roast and proceeded to drink almost all the alcohol in the house! Goodbye Beaver Creek and dry out for the Murphy's for at least a couple of days.
