snow much fun

Yes, we're home. The trip was way too fun. Well, maybe not...fun doesn't even come close to describing it. I think I'll let the pictures do most of the talking. Let me just set the stage. 9 inches of snow the night before we arrived. 3 more inches the day of arrival. Beautiful sunny skies the next 2 days. Rain to send us home. We took the trip with the Valle family. Everyone except Gaby-Baby got to hit the slopes. The best part for us was the runs we took as a whole family. I am loving this new stage in life.
The families had slope-side rooms next door to each other. We shared meals, babysitting and Abba Sing-Star. The boys found the deck to be a great place to "sword" fight. Night time swims were a must. You start out in the indoor pool and then before sanity strikes, you swim through the tunnel to the outdoor pool, complete with a waterslide and hot tubs. Only the insane survive it. The waterslide is a blast if you enjoy getting your hands frozen to the railings on your way down. As you hit the water a brain freeze sets in to complete the fun. The kids couldn't get enough. Oh, heavenly hot tubs. Our defense against hypothermia.
Marshall is getting to be a great skier. He skis fast and loves the black diamond runs. Nicole snowboards and they had built up a little rivalry. They would race nearly every time they could. Here's the evidence, I mean video, of the race. Beware...Chris filmed this while he was skiing. It's a tad shaky:)


Good-bye Snowshoe. See you next winter...

It looks like fun! How bad is it that I am from Ut, now live in CO, and have yet to actually go skiing? ..Pretty bad, I think. I can't believe how fast little Marshall is! That is awesome! I'm glad you all had fun and some great snow for skiing!

Heidi, Looks like fun! It is fun when kids get older and you can do more adult family oriented things. Where did you guys go? I know you said the plaec, but I wasn't sure where that was. Did you ski or shred up the mountain like Nicole?

How fun for your whole family to be able to ski together! That's awesome that Gracie could go, she'll be a pro starting at four and a half. Love the picture of your whole family.
