Vail Ski Trip!

Last week we took the kids on a family ski trip to Vail.  It was amazingly beautiful and we got almost 3 feet of snow in 2 days!!  The ski conditions were amazing.  As expected, Mia did amazing!  This was her third year, so she's really got things dialed in.  She not only can hang with some light black diamond runs, but loves leading Mommy & Daddy off into the woods on alpine trails, and hitting small jumps.  The girl is crazy!  She would do half day lessons to improve her skills, and then ski with Mommy & Daddy in the afternoons. I kid you not that in the middle of the night she would come wake us up and ask if she could go skiing now...  Obsessed!  So nice to have a family vacation with just us and the kids.  Great memories!

Ski Bunnies!!

Here the Twins were, all geared up and ready for their first day of skiing!  They looked like cute, chubby little weeble wobbles in their full regalia... As we guessed, Aubs did fantastic.  She learned to pizza stop and was able to stop on her own by the end of the trip.  As we also guessed, Big Boy took the lazy route and whined until his instructor let him go take naps and flirt with the other instructors...  The kid is an unbelievable Momma's Boy, and just plain lazy!  He sure takes after his Daddy...

Nap Time at the Slopes!

The Twins had full day private lessons while we skied.  At lunch time on the first day, while eating lunch, we were discussing what the twins might be doing.  Were they enjoying their day?  Honest to God, after about 15 minutes we noticed that they were sound asleep at the table next to us!!  Rough life these kids have...

Snow Angels!

We took a day off from skiing with the intent of snow mobiling and sledding.  Unfortunately, it snowed so much that they shut down those activities for the day...  The kids didn't seem to mind. We took the gondola to the top of the mountain, made snow angels and played in the blizzard!  It was so much fun for the kids to experience the weather and snow.
