Weekend in the Snow

I know for some of you that are really tired of fighting snow and ice, it is hard to believe that my family drove for almost 3 1/2 hours to spend the weekend in the snow.
We rented a cabin in Greer, AZ close to the Sunrise Ski resort. The kids went up on Friday night after work, the great white hunter and I came up on Sat. morning.

Here is the view outside the cabin.

Julia and I went down a very steep and bumpy hill on the sled. Needless to say, I only went once. A few of those bumps were so hard that my breakfast got jarred and I thought I was going to lose it at the bottom of the hill. So, I just took the pictures and let Papa and DD go down on the sleds with the kids. I am a wimp!

This is a view from the road showing the ski runs at the ski resort. Our DIL and SIL skied. Most of the SIL's slope time was helping Julia on the bunny slope. They signed her up for a lesson and then he helped her practice on Sat. He went back on Sunday morning to ski alone while we went sledding. She had a rough time with the lesson, a few tears were shed but once she stopped crying and the instructor worked with her, she loved it and did really well. Next trip, lessons for Colin!

Several of you mentioned coming for milk and cookies after my last post. Wouldn't that be great if we could all sit and do that? It would be so fun to meet you and sit and chat. Then we could all sew! One of the frustrations of making friends this way, is you are there and I am here!!

Spell check is not working if it is mispelled, just make a good guess!

That looks like so much fun. I would pass on playing in the snow, but I'd love to sit and sew with you.

I put my sweats on when my living room temp hits 75, so I'd turn into a snow person if I got into the ice stuff.

I hope you're having a great day.

The snow looks so pretty. I like snow...if you don't have to drive in it (like to work). Glad you had fun with the family. Yet, I bet you are glad you are back home.

Snow is so much more fun with kids. Dogs too. Glad you had a nice weekend. Thanks for the pics. Beautiful.

Your so right. It's often hard to find good fellowship. I guess the best we can do is count our blessings and be thankful for the friends we have made both on and offline.

What a fun time! I'm not thrilled to see the snow, but hey, if you drove that far to find it, I'm happy for YOU! All I have to do is sit and wait and it comes to me *VBS*
The cookies DO look WONDERFUL! Hmmm a hunger pang?? Maybe *G* Hugs, Finn
