Bryanfest 2012

After everyone got better we traveled south to be with the Bryans for the rest of the year.

The gals did their favorite things and had a lot of fun {we even skyped Andy's oldest sister who lives in Tennessee}.  Next year we think we'll have the boys do their own version too.

(air freshener, boot socks, words to live by, mini peanut butter cups from Trader Jo's, breath mints, ice cream/cookie dough scoop)

 It wouldn't be a Bryan gathering without a play written and performed by the kids.  It's always fun to see what they come up with :)

Ben did a lot of playing with an old Sesame Street set and the other kids were very creative with how they spent their time.  Josh and Matt had both lost all of their computer/video game type time for the rest of the year so it was nice to have them active in other things during this vacation.  They all enjoyed spending time with Grandpa and Grandma, their cousins...and the new puppy.

The adults spent time chatting, playing games, doing puzzles (jigsaw and crossword), shopping, watching football and supervising kids :)

A bunch of us even got some sledding in on New Year's Eve.

After we were done sledding Andy took the kids back to the house and I took off on my x-country skis for a bit.  I hadn't been on them for two years so I had to get used to them again.
It was refreshing and very cold at first but once I got into my rhythm I warmed up and all was well.

A pleasant little vacation from normal life...and Ben only had one major seizure while we were there.
