Lynn was literally crying she was so excited. These are big babies.  They are very…

The family went tubing at Perfect North Slopes last week. We were joined by Beth Lukes and Tim Roetting. After the tubing, the girls went to the lodge and the guys went snowboarding. It was a great day to go skiing. The skies were blue with great snow. The downside was the crowds. I’ve never…
