About Us...

About Us...
This is our travel blog... our electronic travel journal you could call it... documenting our journeys to new & different places. I called our blog, 'Tree Top Flyin'... a Jimmy Buffett reference that reminds me of traveling, & the adventures to be had with our newly acclaimed 'IFR' Pilot & his plane. We're a non-traditional family - living in non-traditional ways... and I love it that way. For the four of us life is quick & distinct... it's unique and adventuresome - but it's also very normal. We have angst, & we have laughter. We have pain and we have greatness. We're happy, and we're whole...this family, that is mine.

February 2012

SO much snow. 
Not as much as 2011, but it's a wonderland. 
We usually show up and I hike to the house and start a fire while Jim get's to plowin'. 
I eventually get really sick of the snow - but I love it. I've always thought - if I'm gonna be in snow, I want it to be POUNDing snow.
This is it.

It's nearly impossible to look cute in all the layers this weather requires, so I've just succumbed to looking ridiculous. 
Way funny.

 The Boys bundled up after a long day in the snow.

Building our hockey rink.

I don't know how Jim figures this stuff out, but the boys spent most of winter time with us, here on the ice.

Ty learning Dad's tricks

Little Man. 
The boys are both a little traumatized (Bo in particular) after my broken arm/snow machining incident. But they're learning to weed out the fear. 

Warming up in the barn with The Classic Cramer Stove Jim plumbed in. 
It's an old stove built by Jim's Uncles who had a hay-day manufacturing them in the 70's. 

Fitting in some play-time.

Janet & Erick visited from San Diego for a long weekend.
They were probably more than ready to head  back to their sunshine-surf lifestyle after a week in the snow.
I was back on the snow machine - cast in tact... my Mom would not be happy I was out there. 

The boys did their fair share of shooting. Don't they look bad!

Playing Auntie... my favorite role ever. 
Eli loves anything covered in yellow mustard, which makes it easy for the cook. 
I could squeeze him to the moon & back every day of my life.

Jimbo trying to instill the hockey gene early on.

My Bowling Birthday party - the guys surprised me.
