James and I got one of the greatest luxuries for a married couple with young children - Date Night! We were originally supposed to go to the jeweller to get the anniversary band to complete my wedding ring set but unfortunately they closed before we were able to get out of the house. But we did not want to let pre-arranged babysitting services go to waste so we headed off on a lovely night, sans les enfants. The evening started with some retail therapy at the mall (ironically everything purchased was for the children, LOL), then we enjoyed a slow dinner and cocktails at P.F. Changs downtown and then, oh-luxury-of-luxuries we went to see a film. It's been just about a year since James and I caught a movie together, and we even went to the late showing (yes, we were the oldest people in the theater)! We really enjoyed the film and had an all-around great night. Hopefully our anniversary trip to Las Vegas will be even more thrilling. One month to go!

Well Sunday was both a sad and awesome day, depending on whom you asked in the Fife household. I was ecstatic that the ski season was finally over and that I get to have my husband back for Sundays again, and James and the girls were sad to bid farewell to Bogus Basin for another season. The closing day theme was luau so James skiied in a Hawaiian shirt and shorts (you should see his sunburn lines - I never knew there was anything dorkier than a farmer tan, but there is and I need to get some pictures to prove it), Hero skiied with a lei, and Allegra wore a bikini top. The girls have really come far in their ski skills this season (so says James, I certainly have no clue, LOL) and we just might have to get Hero into racing some season. It was a perfect closing ski day - sunny and in the 70s.
