    Hmmm, where is Ben’s helmet :-0
    I will send Ben a helmet too 🙂 Size?
    Both of ‘you guys’ stay out of the candy store…
    When Nancy arrives she will sample the candy and make sure all the candy is safe ;-D

      He probably would wear a large helmet!
      I’ve already sampled most of the candy… but I’ll sample it a few more times to make sure it is safe for you!!

    Now you’re just bragging – it is unreal how awesome this place looks! I cannot wait to visit (particularly if Ben is still sporting a mohawk).

    Beautiful, all of it! I am so jealous. You’re going to have to get X-country skis, you know.

      I’m actually pretty pumped about trying X-country skiing, despite how much I LOVE snowboarding (insert sarcasm here)
