This is why I love the mountains. Check out the beautiful view I encountered while cross country skiing today. Gotta love winter!
For Christmas I got cross country skis and today was my first time trying them out. I know how to snowboard and have skied in the past so I thought I’d be pretty good at this but only two words can describe my ski trip today: awkward and clumsy. Only time will tell if this will be possible with tots in tow.
Finally some snow! Mountain Dad and I moved into our new mountain home less than one month ago, ready to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Unfortunately December 2011 was the driest month in recorded history and there were no snow sports to be had. So when we finally got snow on Saturday I was thrilled. Three inches isn’t much but at least it’s a start.
After 20 minutes of wrangling I finally got Big E into his new snow pants and boots, little g swaddled in her bear suit and moby wrap and my coat and hat on. It was worth the wrangling, Ethan loved the snow, loved playing bulldozers with the snow shovels and I loved being outside.
While driving through Provo canyon yesterday my son, who did not want to go home said:
Big E: I no wan go home! We go to da hot springs?
Apparently it was fun enough for him. Later he explained:
Big E: We go to hot springs in january cause it my birfday and we go to hot springs!
