Alissa & the boys went on a snowboarding holiday for Spring Break
An unseasonably warm winter left the Vernal snowboarding lacking.
Still, they found fun things to do while they were in Beaver Creek.

Say Cheese? Say what!? Meh.

The night manager at the hotel where they were staying
is a partner in Vail Valley Paragliding. Mr David Champaign and Mr Tom Keough
took Eli and Taylor on an awesome tandem paraglide from the top of Bellyache Ridge.
Oh, and Alissa & the boys did a little snowboarding too, by the way...

It was t-shirt weather!

Stronger than you
think! Stay back!

We had some beautiful days in April, and Alissa & I
missed enjoying them because we were either working,
or at work-related education. While I was uselessly surly over this,
she was productive as usual, always creating something interesting.

Don't forget the blood sugar!!
Sparkling cupcakes

Anything that flowers started a bit early this year.
Atleast, as far as I know. Even with a paucity of precipitation.

Like flowers within a flower
Speaking of big,
this is Euphorbia...

The bees know, but they're stilll on vacation.

The sweet smell of
a native plum tree
28 April 2012

All of a sudden, May is here, and I haven't had to
shovel any snow yet this year. I don't expect to see any of that
falling until after Labor Day. Count on it...

Sometimes I just wish it would rain!
Dramatic sky:
all bark, no bite.
