We had a great ski trip again this year! We left Hays on March 1, 2013 and dropped the twins off at Wayne & Sandy's before the rest of us took off to stay at Dad's for the night.
Robynn & Dustin dropped Stella off at Mom & Ron's in WaKeeney and then Dustin dropped off the porch. Literally. He skipped the steps and headed straight for the ground, twisting his ankle in the process. Hurt before he even got further than 30 minutes from home! Let the harassment begin!
From dad's, we drove up the mountain on Saturday afternoon. After we were checked into the condo we all went to eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in Breckenridge.
Y U M M Y !
Here is a pic of Dustin's ankle after the swelling went down a bit and the purple started to appear. OUCH! He was a trooper, that is for sure. He had about 40 hours after twisting it until ski time and he made it work. After day two the color was even worse.
If Dustin weren't able to ski Royce and I were ready & willing to get him set up with a new ride.
Luckily he was a good sport about all of our jokes!
Chloe & Isaac getting fitted for their gear.
I bought a helmet the day before down in Denver.
A special thanks to everyone who saw me earlier in the day and did not tell me that the size Medium sticker was still on the front. I really appreciate it.
Great morning in Breckenridge!
Dustin's *cough* good side.
EVERYBODY around loved Isaac's Angry Bird helmet :)
He improved so much from last year. He had so much fun and verbalized his excitement!
Our skiing kiddos!
Woke up to a lot of new snow our second day skiing.
It was FANTASTIC!
Chloe was just the Rock Star we expected her to be.
She is a really great skier--going to be lots of fun in the years to come.
Robynn & Dad in the fresh snow!
The second afternoon dad kept Chloe & Isaac inside while us four big kids skied together.
I think they ran the quarter machine out of quarters! Granddad's supply was a lot greater than our supply would have been. They had a lot of fun in the game room and pool.
Royce and I on the lift in the blowing snow! We were covered in snow each time we got to the top of the lift but the skiing was as good as I can ever remember. It was so much fun!
Robynn & Dustin--I think?!? Maybe not. Can't really tell.
A lot of laughs and good times! So glad our kids are getting the fun ski trips as kids as we used to get. It will be so much fun to watch them continue to improve on the slopes.
