Sun Valley trip

We went on a little family vacation to Sun Valley, Idaho which is well known for its wonderful summer skating school. We thought it would be great to all go there for a relaxing few days and Sam could also get some skating lessons and do a few skating clinics.
The first night we went to see the skating show and Sam was BEYOND excited about that!

 After the show, she got to meet Courtney Hicks, who is the 2011 junior national champion.
 The day after it was time for some skating lessons. The outdoor rink was great...what a treat to get to skate outside and not in a freezing indoor rink.
 Anaïs got to try skating too! She did good but did not love
 More skating clinics...

 Sun Valley is also know for skiing and beautiful mountains. We took the gondola and chairlift to the top of the mountain, it was beautiful!

 Anaïs is always so sweet and loves to pick out flowers for me :)

 And more skating...

 We took the girls' bikes to go check out the horses:

 And of course, a vacation would not be complete without swimming!

The other day Anaïs found a ladybug and Jeff took this really cute picture of her...could she be any sweeter..? I don't think so.

France/Spain trip

The girls and I spent almost three weeks in France and Spain with my mom, my sister and nieces. Fun times as always but did not take a lot of pictures this year.
Sam got really sick though one night and we ended up spending the night at the hospital in Spain. She had a severe sinus infections and had to get antibiotics through IV...not fun.
Besides that, we had a blast!
I will just let the pictures do the talking...
