It started out with two grumpy kids: Aly doesn't like to go and we made her. She didn't complain or grumble too much, but she wasn't exactly chirping happy songs either. Adam was grumpy because, initally, he wasn't in the front of the line which is where he wants to be. But things worked out and it ended up being a great day.
By the end of our trip, everyone was tired but happy. When we turned our skis toward the car Aly kicked it into high gear and arrived there 15 minutes before us... kind of like a horse on the trail home. Adam, when we would go down hills, would raise his hands high in the air and while gliding downward yelled, "I COME IN PEACE!" Half the time he'd land on his rear. It was great.
Can't wait to go again! (We'll probably let Aly stay home. Poor girl has been tortured enough.)
Thanks for all those who asked for my new blog address. I will send you an email in about a week with that information. If your name isn't on there, there's still time!!
