Let's do this- 1st family vacation, post residency!! We decided that we would like for the girls to grow up skiing! I have always LOVED to ski and Ken has always loved to do anything that could possibly injury him. Ha!
After asking around, we decided on Steamboat- which was an amazing choice! We flew into Hayden, CO and caught our hotel shuttle. The girls are such great travelers! They are like their Mommy- we LOVE to be on the go!
In the snow the first time- these 2 LOVED it! I was so worried about them getting cold, and then not loving it, but those were wasted worries! THEY LOVED IT! Red face, cold fingers and noses, LOVED it! We even planned a little surprise for the girls and extra help for Ken and I, Grammy and Pop Pop drove up for a little vacation with us! I think we sold Pop Pop on trying to ski next time! :)
Mattie and Hailey attended snow school for 4 days! We originally signed them up for 3, but they had such a great time, they asked to go back. Their teacher Miss Lindsey, was amazing!
Watching these 2 ski was amazing!! They were adorable not to mention, pretty good! I will post a few videos.
Ken and I attended a ski school of our own- Ken wanted to learn to snowboard and I wanted to spend time with him. It was all fun and games until I broke my tailbone- literally- broke it.
Here I am- looking awesome....
But this was more the reality. All I was thinking- "why am I not skiing? I love skiing..."
On the 3rd day- i traded that ridiculous board for ski's and went out on my own and LOVED it! Ken took his 3rd lesson and really got good! Next time, he can have the board and I am sticking with skis. Lesson learned, donut owned, and still feel the pain almost 2 months later.
I loved that the girls got report cards! They really did do great!Hailey's report card skiing:
We even had time for some tubing- I think that was Grammy and Pop-Pop's favorite part! They went down more than us! It was so fun to see and do with them.
These tubes brought out the kid in all of us!
After the last day of ski school- I decided that I was ready to attempt the big mountain with the girls! They did great and LOVED it. Having such a great experience only excites me for next year!
Mattie going down.
Here we all are after our last run in Steamboat.
I couldn't get over the sunset our last night in COLORADO.
Rest sweet girls- skiing definitely takes it out of you...
(notice all the lights are on- I thought they were watching TV).
