Peter wants to learn to snowboard, so the Adorable Husband is taking him up to Copper Mountain for lessons -- by himself. A whole day, just "the boys". After several instructions (including "make sure to feed him") they were off at 7am with boots, snowpants, and a couple of ipods.

Nin is only a little nervous about Peter. She's actually quite nervous that Mark has bitten off more than he can chew with an eight-year-old all day long. Admittedly, we do end up pretty exhausted after a week of hosting them (wow, an 8-year-old kid has a lot of energy), but I'm not worried. They get along great, Mark has to eat at least as often as Peter does, and I'm sure they'll have a lot of fun. Nin is not so sure. I figure the worst case scenario is that they both come home this afternoon and fall asleep immediately.

We spent the day running around looking for a lamp for the living room (which we found!), having lunch, and wandering around home stores. Then we went and had pedicures at the spa. It was a lovely day. We rarely get to spend any time together without Peter, so thank you, Uncle Mark!
