ski weekend

we spent part of the weekend in mccall skiing. so much fun! my mom gave wade a couple of nights at a time share for his birthday. this was the best gift ever. the terrys came along and added to the greatness. here are the kiddies {including wade} having lunch in the lodge.

wade's at his best on a pair of skis. seriously makes me swoony.


very "cool" max

max coming off the end of the rail. he did two bigger ones too but i couldn't get pictures.

"hi, my nose is squished"
i don't particularly LOVE skiing, but i really really love watching my kids have fun doing it, and doing it well. they both went up the big hills with us. max especially loved skiing the big hills and was much more comfortable {and better} than i was. he kept giving me pointers and encouragement. "turn now, mom. keep going. oh, you're doing great!" he really is the sweetest kid you'll ever meet. nikki was great too. i couldn't believe how well she did coming down the big hill. those kids skied ALL day long with hardly a complaint.

Oh, I'm really getting the skiing itch! Your kids really are so sweet, Elizabeth! I can just picture them skiing all day; happy as can be and full of energy! You guys are good to take them; it seems like it'd be a lot of work. I don't even think my Max would put the ski boots on! I'm glad you had so much fun!
Love, Summer

BTW...I love how you put the picture of the two of us where I look funny and I put the one on my blog where you look funny. I just think it is funny, I don't know why. Haha, I just read through that and I am a dork.

How FUN!!! I grew up on Brundage mountain! It's a great family place to go. The pictures are great, you look like a "natural" skiier.
