(Keaton looks thrilled, haha!)
Enjoying his cookie.
Then on Saturday Kyle and I got up nice and early and headed to Wolf Creek Ski Resort for a day of skiing while Keaton played at Jack's house. I had been so excited about our first ski trip and although we had as much fun as I thought we would, it didn't look at all how I had imagined it! I envisioned the ground covered in beautiful white snow with the crisp cool air and sun shining down on us. I was excited to wear all my new ski gear and I thought we'd take some really cute pictures, maybe even put one on our Christmas card... but no...the only thing that was the same as I imagined was the ground covered in snow! The snow was pouring down the entire time we were there, not a ray of sunshine in sight, it was so foggy you could barely see the ski run in front of you, I had mascara running down my face, Kyle's beard was frozen with icicles, my hair was frozen after it was hit by the wind so it was all over the place and our faces were red from wind burns. Sounds brutal I know, but it was a blast! As far as picture taking we got very few because neither of us wanted to take off our thick gloves to take one and it was snowing so much we would have gotten it all wet. Here's some pics we did take though.
I wasn't lying! Literally icicles!
Having a blast!
I love snow! (and this was just in the parking lot!)
We had a wonderful time together! I was nervous at first because I've only been skiing once and it was about 7 years ago but my ski legs came right back! We both had a couple falls. I ran into a Charlie Brown tree when I cut too sharp to the left and Kyle and I both fell into about 5 ft. of powder at different times when we couldn't see the ski run and got too far off it. =) We also collided into each other once which was pretty funny! I can't wait to go again! It's so weird to be a "local" and go whenever we want! When we got back to the car it had snowed about 6 inches since we had arrived so the drive home was interesting. We (Kyle) had to stop twice to scrape the ice off the wipers and before we got down off the mountain we saw 4 people that had slid off the road. We got home safe, thank God! Here's a couple videos of the weather conditions! =)
