We Ski!

Well, some of us do anyway. We made our first snow foray as a family over the weekend, where Q-ster got to ski for the first time and I managed to talk Buster into wearing a winter coat, almost as large an accomplishment.

Look at this gorgeous lake, micro dude!

(A small lake near Tahoe.) Isn’t it gorgeous, with the light glancing off the blue, blue water?

Not impressed. Happy to sit in the car and play with the iPhone.

Finally, after several stops at increasingly enticing locations, at one of which he agreed to wear his boots, I got him into a coat and we took the gondola up to join SwingDaddy and Q-ster at the ski base. Yay, gondola ride!

All four of us enjoyed some inner tubing, and Q-ster took to the circuit like a pro.

A lovely day. And look, the Buster is even wearing snow pants. Life is especially good when your children are cooperating.

Fun trip, especially now Q-ster has learned to ski.

How fun! We love to ski! Too bad the season is over for us, but we're looking forward to Spring!

I wanted to take my kids tubing this year, but sadly you need to be 48" tall on our local mountains. Hopefully next year my oldest will be tall enough.

Yay! We went tubing recently too--a big hit.
