Another Fun Project

The boys were off drawing pictures today and each created a new type of alien race. They then hit me at lunch with there great idea to build suits out of wood to look like their creations. UMM suits out of wood, not too sure that we can pull that off boys but they thought I should be able to pull something off for them. I thought about it for a few minutes and then figured we could maybe compromise with helmets and we got off to work on them after supper. They enjoyed the fun of working on the project together, then I left them to color they were pretty impressed with their work.

One Great Ski Weekend

We got to spend the entire weekend at the ski hill now after 2 full days of skiing Carrie and I are feeling a bit of stiffness. The kids had a great time and we managed to spend time on some new hills, the challange was fun and we made it through without too many spills, now we were have a little bit of fun with the camera too. watch out

Blake before and after he had a run in with the snow bank

Carrie wandered off course a little bit and took a header into the tree, splaterific I gave it a 9.5 for style.

Trin had a wipe out and Blake came to the rescue of big sis...

Jay ended up down in the woods, that doesn't look too comfortable.

A pretty pink flamingo came along and barried her head in the ground after wiping out.

After his accident Jay had a hard time crawling out of the woods
so we had to send Kohl down after him.

Everyone had a turn wiping out with a head stand of trouble

I was cruzin along until this giant tree jumped out and grabbed me...

After a few more runs down the hills it was time to break for lunch, we had delicous subs and a nice break together before heading back out to the hill to finish off the afternoon with some new hills (Whisky Jack) for the kids and (Eagle) for me.

Blake came at me with the fishy lips so I had to get him back of course

Now back on the hills we had some great runs, Kohl had a nice spill here and I had a great one coming down the Eagle but luckily Carrie couldn't get the camera out fast enough.

Blake and Carrie had a cuddly moment at the top of the 'Timberdoodle"

Blake met up with one of his friends from School...Brody, they had a few minutes of fun together.

Another Great Ski Day

When we got up this morning we decided to check the snow line, and to our surprise there were some of the runs open at the ski hill along with the pallet lift so we made a quick decision to head off to the ski hill to enjoy a great day of skiing. It was a bit chilly but we had our gear to deal with that.

We weren't long getting ready, with everyone working together to get ready to hit the hills

Now that we were ready it was off to make a couple of runs down the bunny hill to warm up and get ready for the other hills.

Off to the pallet lift for the first run of the year down Partridge pass!

We even managed to get everyone in a picture together thanks to a passer by that was nice enough to take a couple of shots for us.

After a couple of hours we decided to take a break for a snack and a rest for our feet.

It was the ski hills birthday and they had a hot chocolate table set up, you know what goes good with hot chocolate....of course chocolate cookies....yummy!

Alright back to the hill and it was Blakes first run EVER down the Lower Red tail, he did great with a little coaching from Mom to make sure he got down ok.

He was so excited about his run, he fell over with joy when he got to the end.
