The Fish Hatchery.

Happy New Year!  I thought for the new year I would try and blog more.  Yeah, I said try.  I hope everybody had a nice new year weekend.  I sure did.  I drove up to the snow with my sister's family this weekend and it was really fun.

The snow was too dry to make a snowman, but we did have fun throwing rock hard ice balls at each other.

And Jasmine got to bury a flag she had made with our names on it in the snow.
Christy and the kids were hoping for snow to actually be falling from the sky, but it has actually been pretty dry here lately.  It all worked out though because Ken can make it snow.
Then we headed out to a fish hatchery we had seen on the way up the mountain.  I enjoy a good fish hatchery and while it was kind of off season there were still some fish in there and it was fun to actually be out and about on the weekend instead of on the couch.
There didn't seem to be anyone around so we wandered through the buildings and used the heated bathrooms which were surprisingly nice.

Then we went to another hatchery!  Who knew there were so many so close together?  This one wasn't very fun.  It was completely fenced off.  I took a nice photo of Christy's family though:
Jasmine got a souvenir frozen stick.
Mikey got a rock.
And Christy got a headache.
We had fun though and plan to go up to Bonneville Dam in two weeks to take some dam pictures and go to the fish hatchery.  I've been to that one a few times before and it is always a good time.

My birthday is on Thursday.  I'm turning 30!!  I have the day off from work and Christy and I are going to hang out and go shopping.  I'm also going to see Black Swan this weekend which I'm really looking forward to seeing.  And of course... The first of the year diet.  Which I will immediately go off for my birthday.  Ugh!  It's so inconveniently located.

Anyway, I hope everybody had a wonderful Christmas and here's wishing for a wonderful 2011.

I enjoy that Ken can make snow. And, I'm really looking forward to more Susan blogs! You and your sister both need to work on posting at least twice a month! I mean it! (Does anybody want a peanut?)

That Amy, she can...fuss. I think she like to scream at us.

Glad to see you blogged! And happy early birthday!

I am also happy to see you blogging, susan. :) And with tales of adventure, with pictures to boot! Totally sweet!

We need to do craft night sometime soon, btw. :D

That was a good day. Can't wait to see the movie. I'm off to my first day back to work. Love you.
