On one of our non-skiing days we made a few snowmen.

Wilson claimed the big one and by default Campbell got the little guy, though in reality Pete and I are the ones who should be laying claim.
We miss these guys.

On our last full day at Copper we headed over to the tube hill. We honestly almost didn't do this out of fear it would be more geared for big kids, but it was a blast. One of my favorite things we did and the boys LOVED it!

We all took turns riding with each other, but for the most part Pete and Wilson were a team and Campbell and I were a team.

Campbell laughed the whole way down and Wilson would always have a few words, like "sweet dude" or "that was awesome!"There were 5 tube lanes and we tested them all out.

Tubing was a super fun way to spend our last day...we even got lucky with the weather, it was the warmest day all week (around 20 degrees.)

One day my dad and i took my parents camera out with us skiing. We didn't manage to take many pictures, it's lots of work to take off gloves and unzip and put it all back in and on, but we did manage to pull it out a few times

and the best part was that we ran into Wilson and Campbell's ski class on the mountain, just after they rode their first real ski lift.
so cutie!!! and a little scary, but just for me.

2nd annual ski trip

We have had the pleasure of taking a ski vacation with my parents the last two years.
This year we drove to Copper Mountain, CO.

I'm hoping that by calling it the second annual I can count on a 3rd annual- at least a girl can dream.

It was a great week. It was the perfect combination of skiing, family time, sleep, and amazing scenery.

We got home very early this morning and I thought this was the perfect way to start my blog for the year.

....more to come.
