I had my first and probably last ski day of this season today with my daughter, Jill, and her two boys, Jared, 9, and Justin, 6. The day started out bright and sunny, but by around 10 a.m. it was snowing hard and that snow turned into icy pellets flying through the air. The weather drove me inside a time or two, but Jared and Justin kept their mom going all day.
We also got to ski some with my son-in-law, Brandon, my grandaughter, Hope, and Brandon's dad, stepmom and his two little brothers who are visiting them here from Albuquerque.
I am tired and I will be sore, but it was a very fun day.
Getting ready is the hard part
The big smile on Jill's face is there because I landed on my bum trying to take this picture. She would have been laughing even harder if she had seen how long it took me to get up. She accused me of using picture taking as an excuse to take a break (and she was right)
We all got together at the top of the lift with the snow coming down sideways.
I should have had Jill take a picture of me in action. You'll have to take my word for it, I was good.....or at least I didn't come home with any broken bones.
