Rarrrr! Look out! Here I come!
Monday, January 30, 2012
I went out and got myself some New Balance water resistant Minimus running shoes. I've been on the road and the trails with them. They keep me warm and, more importantly, dry! I also purchased these bitchin' ankle gaiters. You know you wish you ran so you could wear some!
My girls love rain gear! They love being out in the rain in their rain coats, boots and umbrellas. Even if it is January and it's freezing rain!
We tried this for bedtime. It only lasted for about fifteen minutes then had to be put away and everyone went into their beds. It was fun while it lasted.
Going back to Snowbird with the kids is always such a mix of emotions and memories. I spent six years of my life working and riding there and now I only visit when the kids are snowboarding. I'd love to go ride too, but a day with put you back nearly $80! So, I watch and enjoy that they love it. Kurtis has a season pass this year and is loving it! Lila is really beginning to love snowboarding and is even going over jumps!
Last Friday Jeff took Lila and Kurtis up early and Clarissa and I met up with them mid-day. Clarissa loves the snow so much. We haven't had much in the valley this year, so it was hard to get her past the snow in the parking lot!
Finally to the slope. Here comes big sister down Chickadee! Lila can ride on her own on the flatter, upper part of this slope, but the bottom half is steeper and requires a little help from Dad.
Kurtis came down to the tram deck to meet up with us and have a snack.
That didn't last too long. She'd rather eat snow!
This is Chickadee bowl. A very flat and short slope for beginners. Lila bombs straight down this hill. It is way too easy for her this year.
Lila and Jeff on the lift. Ahh, the memories of my Dad and I riding chair lifts together! I'm so glad my kids will have these same wonderful memories!
What great times! I think I need to start searching for a discount ticket so I can go at least once this year! I'm sure Kurtis will kick my butt!
