We recently returned from our annual ski vacation in Park City. We had a great time. This years trip had many highlights. The skiing was great. The company was great. The stomach flu was not great. With in hours of our arrival the illness arrived. Taking out one family member after another. All but 4 of the 28 Jacobs family members in attendance this year were infected. In addition to the stomach flu one individual lost consciousness resulting in a visitation by the spirit, who quickly accessed the situation and went back to bed. (note: spirit not shown in photographs). Here is August, Eden, and Libby on the ski lift. Following the week at Park City Libby and the kids spent a week having fun with "Grandma Emmie"and Grandpa Val.
Eden basking in the great weather. The sky is always that blue in Seattle. You just can't see it because of the clouds.
Sophie's first and last ski trip this year. She is smiling here, but rest assured the smile quickly faded. Barely 3 is a little young for a good time.

Here is a picture of group that did the most damage to the condo. Eden, Beck, Emery, Jensen, August, and Zoe. If you see any of these kids please notify condo management.

This past weekend I took August and Eden to "Fan Fest" at Safeco Field. This event kicks off the Baseball season and gives fans a chance to meet some of the players and get a close look at the ball park. It was a pretty cool thing to do. The kids loved it. Mainly because they love to stand in lines. Lines are our favorite! They had over 17000 fans so up so we pretty much got to stand in line for everything. After standing in line for 40 minutes to get in, we got to stand in line for a half hour to play catch in the outfield. Then we cut in line to run the bases and sit in the dugout.

We got to play catch out in the out field.

August was safe...but called out. After a long talk in the dugout he now knows not to make the 3rd out at 3rd. I told him that was the kind of stunt that got his Grandpa Jake kicked off his own team.

The lines always move fast when you are with Eden.

This is inside the visitors dugout. Not a bad seat. We were asked not to spit. Reluctantly, we complied.
