Ski Trip!

This is a picture of the first time we took our big girl skiing two years ago.  We all love to ski.  When she got the winning side of the wishbone on Thanksgiving her wish was to go skiing.  We went a few weeks ago, and again on Wednesday.  But I forgot my camera, hence the old pic!

For the first time we got her a lesson.  And, after a one hour lesson, our not quite four year old skied completely on her own for the first time.  Not just the bunny hill, either, but the actual ski runs.  It was awesome and the best time I have ever had skiing.

We took our big guy, too, and he loves it.  And, we took my awesome mother-in-law who kindly held the baby in the lodge so we could all ski.  I am so looking forward to the day when Hubby and I are skiing down the slopes surrounded by a swarm of our skiing children. 

I'm sharing this with you for two reasons.  The first is that I'm super proud, of course, and skiing is one of our favorite family activities. 

The other is that I've been meaning to share another quickie project with you, but the whole packing and unpacking that is a part of taking a 3 year old, 2 year old, and 5 month old out for the day, not to mention all the necessities needed for a day of skiing, has thrown my schedule off.  So, don't worry (I know you were distraught!), I'll be showing you something later today or tomorrow.

For now, though, what are your favorite family activities?


  1. We love to ski too, but I'm sure our hills here in PA would look like Bunny Hills to you guys.
    Glad a good time was had by all

  2. I've never skied back East, but, honestly, I have just as much fun cruising down the easy runs as I do on the challenging ones. :)
