One of the reasons Jeff picked his profession was because he wanted to be able to afford to ski with his family. (this is a pricey sport - yikes! Good thing Goodwill is my Nordstrom)
We had a great and wonderful day. It was the girls first times seeing "live skiers" (their words) as well as standing on skis.
Annie Kate basically taught herself because Jeff and I were with the little ones.
Jeff wins Dad of the year being able to work with those "tweedles" (Jeff's nickname for those two crazy girls)
Riding in the Gondola up and down the mountain while it was snowing was my favorite part.
I can't believe we did it and got all the gear up there and on their bodies.
I of course after packing three bags this morning at 6:00 am forgot my ski pants and had to buy some new ones at the resort (ouch $179.00 - that would have bought me 20 at Goodwill)When we got home the girls gave out awards for the day of skiing. Jeff won best ski teacher hands down. It will take a few years before we spend more time during the day skiing than bribing, eating, crying and riding ski lifts - but until then we are loving it and it has been worth the wait!!
Oh I just feel so incredibly blessed today!
