Ski Trip

So we had a blast in Colorado. I think Brayden's favorite part was the airplane ride. He loved scaling the back of the seats. Thank goodness for my video iPod- that kept Taylor busy the entire trip!

My parents rented a condo at the base of the mountain in Breckenridge. We had season passes so we went skiing Thursday afternoon and then relaxed in the hot tub. Friday Alan skipped school and came out with us. The big news is that Matt skied. He's a snowboarder but all my family ski so he wanted to try it- especially before Taylor did. He was AMAZING! It was fun to watch him learn something new. He did really well. The conditions were great! On Friday night my sister and her husband flew in. We haven't all been together since their wedding in Aug 2007 so it was fun to hang out.

We went sledding every night and made it to the hot tub and indoor/outdoor pool every night. These were Taylor's favorite activities.

Saturday after lunch we rented the smallest pair of skis and boots for Taylor. At first he was really excited but his boots were tight(like they're supposed to be) and he didn't like that. Once he got over this- HE LOVED IT! He started turning and everything! I can't wait til next season because he's going o be flying down the mountain! He really wanted to ride the "cho-cho" in the sky. (the chair lift) Once we got to the top he didn't want to ski down. He skied for a little while but ended up being held by grandpa.

It's been almost a month now since I've done anything here- and I need to, I know, but I'm not feeling it. Here's a peek at what we did last week... more to come soon.
