Back to Memorial Day weekend...

We were pretty beat on Saturday after partying late with FOTC, so we didn't roll out of bed at noon (yes, NOON...you jealous?). While out and about we randomly decided to make the trip to Mammoth the next day. We felt it was only necessary that we officially christen the new Subaru with a mountain adventure and some end-of-season snowboarding. Anyway, Kenny spent Saturday evening transferring the rack from my car to the Subaru and I finally finished sewing a birthday gift for a certain four-year-old nephew. (It took awhile; I was distracted by a favorite movie from my childhood: Savanna Smiles). Anyway, Hudson's gift? A superhero cape, mask, and wrist bands to compliment this book. I finished it really late at night and Kenny took photos of me wearing it, but I'll just share this much cuter photo of Hudson or "Thomas the Superhero" as he calls his high-flying, crime-fighting alter ego. (Amazing photos of Hudson were obviously NOT taken by me, but by Amelia and Hudd.)
