Ski Hill and more

It's Wednesday and that means time to go skiing. 
The kids can't wait for time to load up and head up the hill behind the house to put on ski boots and skis.  We are generally the first ones there and that means the first ones on the hill. 

Ski hill uses tow ropes to get you to the top.  There are two hills here to ski on.  Bryce is still on the small hill, but it won't be long before you can head up to the big hill nearby.  The tow rope can be a challenge in itself to learn how to grab on and let it pull you up the hill, but Bryce got up on his first try.

His next lesson to learn was how to stop and better yet, how to get up when you fall down.  Last week, he mastered those two skills. 

Today, he was skiing like a pro, turning, stopping on target, and have a lot of fun.

Brian and Bonnie moved across the field to the big hill today.  Bonnie said it kind of "freaked" her out, and Brian fell the first time getting off the tow.  However, he stayed on the big hill the whole time. 

It has been two weeks since our last snow fall and the temps have been in the mid 40s ever since.  I don't know how much longer we will get to ski but we will be on the hill every Wednesday as long as they let us.


In other news, Todd and I had a great date.  The hotel we stayed at is evidently brand new.  I  highly recommend the Comfort Suites if you ever need a place to stay in Wenatchee.  We took time to swim in the pool and hang out in the hot tub.  Dinner and lunch at the Olive Garden and just had fun hanging out together.
