Getting Ready for Ski Season!!

We went to Ski Liberty on Sunday and had so much fun! The boys got their photos taken for their season passes and they are ready to go! Every year around this time they have a Fall Festival where you can pick up your season passes and they provide free activities for the kids and a BBQ. They also had a ski swap where we picked up a helmet for James.

The boys had lots of fun decorating pumpkins and making a scarecrow, which turned out to be great decorations for our front door. They also had the ski lift open so we all rode up and then walked down. We had a great day!!





We first took Charlie skiing when he was 2 yrs. old. He didn't really do much the first time other than walk around in his boots and lay in t he snow, but it helped him get familiar with the whole environment. Last year he really enjoyed skiing and looked forward to going each weekend! For a 4 year old he did great! James did a bit of skiing too.
Here are some videos from last year. The first one is of Charlie skiing the moguls, the second on is James skiing when he was 2 and the last one is of the big boy (hubby) road skiing in our neighborhood during Snowmaggedon:

Awesomeness—and great videos!

I have not skied in years. I miss it. Maybe wifey and I and the bambini will get out this winter. On second thought, maybe we will just go swimming in Florida.
