SkIiNg!

Last weekend we took the kids skiing at Beaver for their very first time. We went with my sister Julie, and Ethan who is Riley's age. Luke snow plowed way good, but had a hard time stopping himself. He just wanted to go really fast (of course.) (Trevor tried to have Luke snowboard, but they don't make boots that small.) Riley was good at being cautious and stopping herself but just liked to keep her skis parallel. Ethan also skied well. The worst part was finally getting everybody to the Bunny hill when we first started and having Riley say "Mommy, I have to go potty" and back up to the lodge we hiked...Anyway, they both loved skiing and still talk about it. And I don't think there is anything cuter than a little kid on skis. My mom picked up the kids at half day and Trev, my sister and I got to finish the day skiing without them. It was freezing cold and I'm still sore, but it was a blast!

I want to go skiing!! We actually have a ski resort here. It's about 1 hour away. I heard it takes longer to ride up the one hill it has than it does to ski down it. DOesn't sound so fun to go here, but it's times like these I miss the snow.

There is nothing cuter than little kids skiing. Michael wants Ian to ski this year but it scares me, I am not a big skier.
