Boarding & Volleyball & Brothers! Oh My!

Wow!  What a weekend!  We are in the season of jam packed weekends filled with fun, competitions, tournaments and road trips!  It is crazy and exciting and fun and exhausting and we've only just begun!  We have Grand Junction (4 times), Powderhorn (twice), Crested Butte and Copper Mountain all before Easter!

Dax had a snowboarding competition (at Purg thankfully) Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  He raced in the Slalom and Giant Slalom.  It was his first time to race and he did great!  He raced six times and got first once and second five times!  He also qualified for Nationals at Copper Mountain and improved his GS time by more than a minute over the weekend.  I'm so proud of him!  It was fun to watch and to be a part of!
Maggie had a volleyball tournament in Colorado Springs.  The plan was to not go watch, but I couldn't stand it, so I left early Sunday morning and got to watch four of her seven games.  She played SO WELL.  I'm so proud of her.  (As a team they did awful, but improved--they lost every set, but Maggie was a super star!)  She's on the club team and this was the first of several tournament weekends out of town!
Meanwhile, while Tiki and Gabby and I were in the Springs with Maggie, Hays and Dax had a total "bro weekend" and it made me to happy and proud to see their pics on Instagram.  They went boarding and out to dinner and to a movie.  They're lucky to have each other!

Tiki and Gabby also had Snowburners (their boarding lessons) and they both improved so much this week!  Their coaches were very proud of them.
So, that was our weekend.  We head to Grand Junction next!
