Yesterday morning when we awoke our temperature was a brisk 6*. When we returned home it was a delightful 80*. One thing that I really like about living here is that we can enjoy the snow in the morning and the sunset on the beach by the evening.
Our annual snow trip was wonderful and very uneventful -- thank goodness. Several of our trips have not been too enjoyable with skiing injuries within the group of skiiers in the family. One year our #2 son broke his back and was medically evacuated home by air for surgery and another year #4 son broke both ankles which made for an interesting trip home as well. Both injuries happened the year that they were to be married. Do you think they were trying to test their future wives during a crisis?
At any rate, this was a fabulous trip. The kids all enjoying being together with their cousins 24 hours of the day and the parents get along so well. It is truly a blessing to have a family like that. So....before I head off for laundy and unpacking once more I will post a few photos of the trip.
View from the condos where we stay. The sunset was gorgeous.
Peyton's second birthday -- after the cake! It's always a fun party when you celebrate with eighteen cousins. Can you tell that by his expression?
First snow trip. I'm not sure how impressed he was but his parents certainly enjoyed all the babysitting help from his cousins and aunts.
Relaxing after a hard day of playing.
SIL entertaining the youngsters on the last night with a very funny song that included each of the children's names and something about their trip.
