In March I turned the big 30...and so did some of my friends in the ward, so our wives threw us a "surprise" birthday party. The theme was Angry Birds, as you can probably figure out from the photos below. Somewhat depressing turning 30, but at least the party was fun!

We made it to the cabin on Lake Cascade (Idaho) around 6 PM Christmas Eve. It was beautiful there. Snow was everywhere, the lake was frozen over and mountains overshadowed the valley. The cabin was perfect and had plenty of room for 27 people and a dog. Here are some pictures of our events at the cabin:

Our Christmas vacation consisted of over 1200 miles of driving and 11 days total. We had a great time and our three kids did awesome in the car. Here was our schedule:
Tuesday December 21st - Leave Kent for Kennewick
Friday December 24th - Leave Kennewick for Cascade, ID
Monday December 27th - Leave Cascade, ID for Kennewick
Saturday January 1st - Leave Kennewick for Kent
We spent Christmas Eve and day in Cascade with the Gordons (another post to come) and the rest of the trip with the Bradshaws in Kennewick. Santa showed up in Cascade with the kid's stockings but left all the presents at the Bradshaw house for the kids to open when we returned. Here are some pics of our portion with the Bradshaw side.
Thank you Eliza for some of these photos!
Also, while in Kennewick we decided to go bowling. Here are some videos of Dillon and Kenzie's first time bowling:
Here is one of Natalie's favorite videos from our trip. After watching "A Minute to Win It" on TV, some of the Bradshaw's decided to try the cookie challenge on their own.
We did spend New Years Eve in Kennewick, but don't really have any pictures. I guess for the most part it was rather uneventful. My parents bought us a Wii for Christmas so we hooked that up and the kids played it for hours upon hours. Dad and I were really enjoyed playing disc golf in the comfort of our home. By midnight it ended up just being me, my dad, Dillon, Heidi and Brad (her boyfriend).
We sure had a fun trip and couldn't have wished for better road conditions.
