Nancy, Moki, and I made the trek to California together. We caravaned with Sam, Amanda, and Andrew. Moki only tried to climb in the front once. She is sneaky about it but once she was rejected she curled up in a ball and chilled in the back.
We don't do a lot of presents but when there is one or two for so many people it sure looks like a lot. I stayed up late on Christmas even cleaning and getting everything ready for Christmas morning.
We watched the kids open their presents. My parents and I got Olivia a skate set. She has been wanting one for a while. We will see how quickly she learns. She practiced a lot and was really excited. Man I love her!
When we came back Braxton and Andrew watched Mickey Mouse together. Seriously these two are so cute. Andrew had seen it before so he had to explain some things.
Moki and I went walk/running everyday in California. The weather was perfect so we took advantage. I think I was starting to get sick or just eating to much garbage because I did not feel like running very much. I did lots of walking. Moki on the other hand was able to be off leash in the field across from my parents and she went crazy.
I love letting her be off leash. She chased rabbits and squirrels, smelled lots of garbage, and just ran way faster then I could ever run.
Sunday the Ben and Katie crew came down for some more family time. We went to the park and played games. We kept it pretty low key. The two little boys were bonding over media again.
Nancy and I headed home on Monday. We had a great trip until Wells. At that point we started to hit icy and snowy roads. Sam and Amanda were an hour ahead of us and said that the roads between Wendover and Salt Lake were pretty ugly. Nancy and I weren't in a huge hurry so we got a hotel in Wendover. Moki and I walked to the gas station for some treats and exercise. It was freezing.
We did make it out to snowshoe this afternoon. We just did a 2.7 mile loop up south fork. It was a beautiful but cold day in the mountains.
2014 was a great year. Can't wait to see what's in store for 2015.
