Team Hutton and Team Cardinal boldly brought all ten together for an epic Spring Break in Beaver Creek, CO. We are so fortunate to have meet over ten years ago in Memphis, TN. Our family friendship remains strong regardless of where we live, how often we see each other and what we do when we get together.

|We may have enjoyed a little candy on the slopes also|
|Never too tired to carry our little girls|

|Nothing better than skiing together as a family|
|Brian, Danielle, Courtney & Scott...no description necessary|
Mid week day off provided plenty of time to play sports, run on the golf course, sled and explore the creek.
|Bryson, Ryder & Taggart|
|Some competitive yet friendly football and soccer|
|The kiddos... Taggart, Ryder, Bryson, Piper, Delaney and Emery|
|They paused long enough for a few photos|
|Run Piper, Run!|
|A perfect visual depiction of Team Hutton|

|"Seriously, why do the golfers hit their golf balls in the creek?"|
|"Regardless, we are happy they did."|
|Nothing better than continuing the day long celebration with some popcorn|
|The kids slept wherever they could...and moved around throughout the nights|
We had an incredible week. Again, we are so fortunate to have the friendship and love making family experiences and memories together. Everyone is sad today and already missing each other. We cannot wait until our next adventure.

The Jacksonville, FL (Bruneau's) and Memphis, TN (Carls') Spring Breaks coincided this year. Fortunate for Team Hutton, they all decided to head to Beaver Creek, CO for the week...Harbor Town Reunion.
We all had a great time re-connecting, telling stories and watching the kids rekindle friendships.

|Team Hutton had a great time in Beaver Creek for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.|

Watching the World's best skiers provided inspiration as we all hit the slopes the next day.

Tagg directed all his energy and new found motivation towards spending the entire day on the slope finding as many different green and blue runs as possible...his favorites were the ones with jumps. Tagg definitely won the medal for most improved.
|Tagg's first time in Rose Bowl|
Daddy said, "I've dreamed of this day for a long time and I am so proud of my two little men." We all question who had more fun, Daddy or Ryder & Tagg. Next, we need to get Piper up on the slopes.
|Daddy with Taggart and Ryder|
Tagg and Ryder both covered 12,000 vertical feet, consumed multiple hot chocolates and scared Mommy and Daddy to death as they gained confident and sought out the trees and jumps. Mommy said, "Oh no! Now we are in trouble."
|Absolutely wiped out|
Ryder won the medal for most adventurous as he did his first black diamond run (with Daddy in tow). The moguls seemed to be up to his hips but he just flew through, over and around them. When he hit the bottom and turned around to see were Daddy was, he said, "Dad are you stuck." Daddy's response was not easily understood as he mumbled to himself the rest of the way down.

A big day for Ryder as we visited the Orthodontist for his dental braces. Ryder selected orange rubber bands and although a little unsure of it stated, "these are cool".

We have a feeling this is going to get expensive.

What a wonderful time of the year! We had a great holiday break and enjoyed the time off together as a family. We split the break in half...first part in Louisville and the second part in Beaver Creek.
|Family photo after Christmas Church service|
|Putting out the milk and cookies (peppermint bark this year) for Santa|
|Papa Leveque reading Twas the Night Before Christmas|
|Andrew Luck & Joe Flacco? Thought this was a Bronco house?|
|Piper discovering her new doll house...enough said|
|First family ride on the chairlift this season. Had a great time skiing in Beaver Creek|
|After a long day on the slopes and then the skating rink...time to crash|
Whether it was ice skating, skiing, sledding or snow shoeing, we enjoyed spending time together as a family outdoors.
Now, back to reality.
