After spending the night at Elly's house, Jim enjoyed Friday the 13th skiing with his brothers and their wives. I had fun playing with Elly and the girls while the boys were in school. We had dinner with the Wilson family at the Little America restaurant. It was a very nice restaurant but the service was extremely slow. All the kids got restless and created quite a commotion running around and jumping off the stairs. I think a few guests, as well as parents, were at their wits end but, heh, it was Friday the 13th. What more could you expect? The rest of the day had gone without a hitch, almost. Aunt Dana did have a nasty fall on the slopes and injured her knee.
Jim took Nathan and Matthew skiing on Saturday, Valentine's Day. He enjoyed encouraging the boys to show off their abilities when the rest of the Wilson skiers arrived later in the day. The Uncles were impressed! They couldn't believe how fast and fearless the boys were. Matthew's first words to his mom when he got home, "We skied an Olympic Black Diamond!" It was a great skiing day.
We girls (including Cami) enjoyed having lunch and visiting with Grandma and Grandpa Cannon. In the afternoon, Elly and I did some Valentine shopping while Cami stayed home with Maggie and Becca.
