Five girls in Mexico

We had a fun Spring Break trip to Mexico where Claire and Juliet got to spend a full week with their three girl cousins.  Highlights included five girls running around having fun with each other (swimming, playing on the beach, eating), Abbas’s 50th birthday, a half-day excursion to the Mayan ruins of Tulum, and going down the water slide at the hotel. Susan showed us how to create fun videos with iMovie. Here’s one that she and Stu (aka Stu-Su Films) put together about a nature walk we took near the hotel:


Here’s a batch of photos from us and Abbas/Eileen along with a super slo-mo video of the waterslide and some more iMovie trailers from Susan:


Ski week

In Febuary each year the girls get a week off from school that is affectionately nicknamed “ski week” in our town. We try to live up to that billing and headed up to Katherine’s cousin’s house in Sun Valley, Idaho, for a week in the snow.  Highlights of the trip included Juliet’s first ski lessons, snowshoeing, meeting the girls’ friend Anna (who was also in town) for snowman building, and reading by the fire.
