Mad River Mountain

What a busy weekend for The Evans Family!! Friday night, I took the boys to the YMCA for Family Swim (which they loved!), and Saturday night Bill made plans for us to go to Mad River Mountain in Bellefontaine. Sledding at the reservoir is fun, but nothing like this!!

This first picture is all 10 of the tubing lanes, from the bottom:

Nick waiting in his tube to go down!

Trey pretending to "surf" up the lift

Bill & Trey getting ready to go down the hill! I was too nervous to let the boys go on their own, but they only allow 1 person per tube. We strapped the tubes together 2 at a time so that the kids wouldn't be completely by themselves...I'm so glad we did this, because the very last time we went down Trey flew out of his tube about halfway down. I just had to watch from the top (yikes!!) while Bill climbed back up to get him....Thankfully he wasn't hurt, he was mad that he flew out on the last trip down!!

The boys were best friends the whole time we were there! I'm not sure why, but they held hands almost every time we went up the lift!

I think we'll probably go back someday!

Happy Birthday Nick!

Nick was given the choice to have his birthday party at McDonald's, Pizza Hut, or Chuck E Cheese...and he picked Grandma Cathy's house! So that's where it was! He looked through the book and picked out the cake he wanted (Thomas the Train) and even picked most of the food on the "menu" for dinner.

The first present he opened was a puzzle, and he yelled "Awesome, I always wanted this!!" It was too funny!

The rest of the pictures Nick took with my camera.....There were plenty more, but these were the ones with people in them.

Happy Birthday Nick!! I can't believe my "baby" is 4!!!

Ryanne's Mexican Birthday Party!

We got together to celebrate Ryanne's birthday at Mi Ranchito last Friday night! I had a lot of fun, and I hope Ryanne and everyone else did too! I LOVE girls nights out!I think Ryanne is the only person I know who looks forward to having the employees sing Happy Birthday (or whatever they say in Spanish)!! I guess sitting through it isn't so bad when you get free fried ice cream!!!

The birthday girl - complete with a birthday tiara!
Hope you had a great day Ryanne!

Sledding at the Resevoir!!!

The boys have been begging to go sledding for months, and we finally took them! We met up with the Bollenbachers on Saturday and had so much fun! So much so, that we went back on Sunday afternoon for more. This has reinforced the fact that we have two little daredevils!

"Deep in Thought" is the title for the next picture....

I'm guessing we'll be going again soon!

Nick & Max

We have one inside cat - Max. Nick l-o-v-e-s him! Thankfully, Max is the most mild-mannered cat you'll find. He has put up with Nick since birth!
Nick loves to find Max, and carry him to a chair to pet him. Max's arch enemy is Newman...who you can see at the bottom of this picture, just waiting for Max to jump down...

Pizza Party

Finally, we're back up with our computer! I'm going to play a little catch-up here...
A couple weeks ago, we went to Ryanne & Steve's for Pizza, Wii, and just hanging out.... The Ridenours were there too! It was so much fun! Unfortunately, just as we were ready to head over there, Nick got sick. Bill stayed home with Nick, and Trey and I went.

John & Tricia
All the kids (-Nick)
Thanks for having us over Ryanne & Steve!!
