Playing Hooky

Josh has one more day off before the real world starts again, so we've been trying to squeeze in as much family time as we can.
Today we took Alex out of school and headed up the mountain, again.

It was a foggy ride.

* 3 of the many chips in our windshield thanks to Mountain Home, ID. The town slogan should be:

"Come live in Mountain Home. Despite our name, we're a bit of a drive from actual mountains. And hope you have a low deductible on your windshield replacement, we like to lay gravel instead of salt."

But we pulled out of the fog and the mountain top was beautiful.

Today was the first time we've taken the kids skiing, and a good time was had by all.
My first baby on skis!


She did a great job, especially since she's pretty timid when it comes to new things. No tears at all today. She wanted to go fast.

And who said you can't ski when you're still incontinent?
Derek proves otherwise.

Though most of the day, Derek spent just looking cool for the ladies.

And now, after 2 days in a row of skiing, I need a massage. Or a soak in my tub. Or a good night's sleep.
Probably all three.

Yes, definitely all three.
I'm off to see what I can do about those needs.

Wow, I can't believe you guys took the kids skiing! Very cool parents you are. We aren't even thinking about it yet. And, not because we have a 1 month old, but more along the lines of our 6 year old being an uncontrollable ball of energy (although, it is the 2 year old son who yells "crash" in the car whenever I accelerate).

Wow, Guess we need to get going on that! I didn't realize skiing with kids could actually be fun :)
