The Slopes

We've been hitting the slopes and having a great time! The weather is perfect (sunny and not too cold) and the snow is ok. (Wouldn't mind a little fresh powder.....) But it's all good.


The first day we went was the first day skiing for M and SC. (M had maybe skiied once before in Iowa). The first run down there were quite a few spills, but both just kept getting back up again.














Each run down saw great improvement! Here is M just a few runs later...





















What a bunch!!













And, just for fun, without any explanation, a short slide show.





The end of the 2nd day of skiing was rewarded by a wonderful meal of lasagna, bread, salad and rich fudge brownies made by R and M!















And on a final note, today we celebrate A's 22nd birthday here in Colorado!! To celebrate, we are going on a 2 hour snowmobile excursion! Happy Birthday Son!!















Until Next Time....

What wonderful pictures! I'm so glad you all had a great time! And, I am super glad to see that all of your clan had helmets on, even if you didn't, Janice. I hope you, will start wearing a helmet, too, after the tragic death of Natasha Richardson. That was so very sad! It doesn't take much of a fall, or a steep slope...

It's too bad that your spring breaks did not coincide with Sheri's kids. Hopefully next year!
