A Brothers' Tradition Continues

Every year for the past 6 years, the Palkovitz brothers have had a tradition of a winter trip to vermont. You may remember that I wrote about it last year. We usually leave right after Christmas and and go up to a cabin in the national forest to spend a couple of days hiking in the woods, sliding on frozen lakes, skiing behind the truck (kind of like water skiing but on land and terrifying), and doing whatever else we dare each other to do.

This year was perhaps the best year yet. It was great to have a few days to just hang out, goof off, talk, and spend time together. We had fantastic weather, plenty of snow, and the ramshackle cabin was still standing and unoccupied, so we stayed there again. I love this tradition.

And, as can be expected when you get the 4 Palkovitz brothers together in the winter, there was a great deal of snow throwing. Here's Nathan getting his christmas present from Ian.

Ian can thank Shane for this beauty.

the cute palkovitz brothers and all of their antics make me want to go out and conceive four baby boys.

Conceiving 4 baby boys at one time would be quite an antic in and of itself.
