We’re back! We’ve been gone by the way. Sorry for the blog absence. My kids had last week off of school so we spent the week skiing in Brian Head, Utah. Home away from home! I grew up camping and skiing on Brian Head Mountain and it felt so great to be back! Forgive the overload of pictures. I haven’t had time to scrapbook in what feels like a decade so this blog is the only family journaling I’ve got at the moment. And I don’t want to forget this trip. The past three years we haven’t traveled much (other than to visit family). We’ve been busy with babies and building a house and well.. there was that time I almost died. It’s been eventful to say the least! But not a lot of travel. Which we love. So one of our New Year’s Goals was to have more fun trips in our lives and less babies and building and almost dying. ;)
Kenny and I have always loved skiing but this was the girls’ first trip. (I left my little buddy at grandma’s for a week of non-stop fun). We signed the girls up for ski school in the mornings and then skied with them in the afternoons.
Of course Kenny’s Charger coat was easy to spot too. Nope. Not going to lose any of my family on the mountain. That Charger coat was quite a conversation piece. Everywhere we went people either loved us or hated us. Or just wanted to chat with us about football and San Diego. We didn’t mean to make a statement. We just don’t own much in the way of cold weather clothes. :)
They spent the first day going on “the magic carpet” – a little escalator type machine that takes them to a tiny slope to practice.
At the highest point on the mountain. Brrr! So cold!
It was hard to smile for this picture because my lips were numb.
San Diego has made us wimps when it comes to the cold.
A few more random pics…
The lodge we stayed at was in walking distance so every day we would ski until the lifts closed at 4:30 and then head straight to the hot tub at the lodge. They had a heated indoor pool too that the girls loved. Then we’d toss on some clothes and go to dinner. One night we had our food delivered to the room. Kenny caught up on work/e-mails while the girls and I ate and watched Mary Poppins.
I also watched the Olympics each night to pick up some tips for my ski jumps. ;)
Kole had such a great time with grandma and grandpa that he didn’t want to leave what he called his “Utah Vacation.”
