Weekend in pictures

Rain/snow last weekend made for perfectly tacky hero-dirt trails this weekend.  Saw a total of one other person on this ride.  Sweet.

Saturday.  Z did some ball kicking.  No pics though.  This is from the Eightfeet archives.

M debuted her first original composition here:

Got lucky and saw the Rocks actually win.  

Got double lucky as the rain held off until the end:
I think we packed in enough fun to get us through the week.

...but ended with blue sky and warm sunshine.

The video tells the story. Climb, ski, satisfaction.

Just like Lyle says...

"The sun comes up
in a coffee cup..."

Or in this case, a muddy bike water bottle, I guess. Hmmm. Not sure exactly where I'm going with this. But the sun did come up and I've always liked that song.

Checking on the folks over in Masonville:

Who's watching Whom

I've been visiting these guys as often as I can to watch for the little fuzzy ones. No babies to see, yet. Those big yellow eyes always see me before I see them.

Momma hasn't left the nest for a few weeks now:

Dad is usually keeping a close watch nearby as well:
