This isn't a ski blog - Building Blocks Tuesday

Simply Solids April for Licet

Check out the improv block I did today for Licet in the Simply Solids Bee.  She chose the prettiest colors didn't she?  These improv blocks are fun, but I really want to see what they all look like put together.

We are back from our ski trip to Mammoth, CA.  I didn't break anything this year - hooray!  AND, I got all the best prices at my yard sales (skiers will know what I mean).


They call it Mammoth Mountain because it is HUGE.  This is just one part of the mountain, there are at least four.  I was too busy enjoying myself to take many pictures.  We had gorgeous bluebird spring weather 4 of the 5 days we skied.  Not too shabby!

The girls all had a great time too.  Here's a pic of them riding in the gondola.

Girls in gondola

Olivia didn't ski, but she enjoyed riding the gondola up the mountain each morning and waving goodbye to her sisters at ski school.  Here are my little daredevils.

Ashley and Lizzy skiing

Lizzy did extremely well for her 2nd year on skis, and Ashley, well, she can almost ski better than me at this point, and she is only 6!  We are very proud of them.

But hey, this isn't a ski blog, is it?  So what have you been working on this week?

Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.  And spread the word!
