After the boys great start to skiing just a few days ago, we headed up as a family to Ski Liberty (Brayden resting nicely at home with his nurse). Jeremy is a long time skier, a lot in his youth and college days. I, however, skied once, back when Jeremy and I where dating...it did not go well...Jeremy and I learned that we do not work well in those situations (teaching me to ski in snow or water...yikes). And my first time, I may have yelled (or cursed at, depending on who you ask) at my soon-to-be father-in-law at the time...who I am hoping now, only looks back on that ski trip with fond memories. Needless to say, this whole skiing thing is now all about the boys in my house. Jeremy was ready to get back to it and Carter and Luke falling in love with it immediately.
We went the Sunday of President's weekend right after our major snow storms. It was a busy place. We got all the gear together (and Jeremy begrudgingly wore a helmet to be a good example for the boys but I am pretty sure that was the first and last time for him) and headed out.
My class went well (while the boys were off skiing) and then we all skied together as a family...and I moved off the bunny slope.
We skied from about 4:00 till 9:30 p.m. It was packed but beautiful in the evening with snow flakes falling. It did start to get cold and we realized how cold when we got in the car and realized the temp was only in the 20s. My camera and phone would freeze or fog up from the wet cold so there were not many pictures (so not like me but was having enough fun that I didn't care).
A lot of success on our first little ski trip. And planning our next one soon.
