Girl Scout Cookie Sales

With two girls selling cookies in our house (and several others on the block) we had to come up with an alternate strategy for selling cookies than door to door.
 Instead we decided to set up our own booth at the end of the block.
and we even recruited Eli to help with sales (he was a natural!).   Off camera was mom sitting on a chair with a book.  Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

Mission Report

 California schools do a session on the Missions in the forth grade.  Ashton chose to do her report on the San Rafael mission.
 As luck would have it Auntie Suzie was planning to visit all the missions and took the girls to visit.

 Nice to have some first person photos for the report and a lovely day in Marin as well.  Thanks Auntie Suzie!

The Park City Pilgrammage

Again off to Park City for ski week.

 The number of girls on the trip was a bit staggering.

 But having BFFs along for a ski trip is pretty special, and playing with electronics is a must at the end of the day.
 When you are ready before everyone else, it's a good idea to get on the porch so you don't get too hot.
 Partial group photo...

 and shockingly the girls had energy for swimming AFTER a full day of skiing. 

Apparently three little ski bunnies can get into some trouble, and when they have a mean ski instructor they can get themselves comp'd a ski day of fun.

Quick trip to Tahoe

 Dad and the girls took a quick trip to Tahoe to try out the ski gear.  One of the biggest observations was that the trip from the parking lot was long and tiring ;-).

 Aparently if you hug each other prior to lunch you might get a treat.

 but sometimes you have to just take a moment after a fall and catch your breath.
 and on the drive home electronic devices and burgers end the day nicely.
