Our Florida kids are visiting this week, daughter, son in law and 2 grands, a 5 year old and the 3 month old.  They wanted snow and mother nature cooperated with 7 inches on Sunday for sled play that afternoon and the next morning.  Fun was had until the temperature started its rise and the snow quickly disappeared.

Since daughter grew up in Virginia, we taught our kids to ski but she hasn’t been skiing in over a decade, son in law and grandson had never skiied, so we decided a skiing adventure to Winterplace, an hour from  our house would be a fun day trip.  Off we went at 6:30 this morning, put grandson in Skiwee school for half a day, son in law in a group lesson for 90 minutes and took turns with the 3 month old granddaughter in the lodge.  Except for the fact that it was 50 degrees and it rained off and on this afternoon, a good time was had by all.

Daughter picked it back up like she had never been off skiis.  Son in law did well and grandson loved ski school.

 And Mom, Dad, and daughter even got a couple of runs together.
Next installment in the fun times will be a hike to the Cascades tomorrow as the temperature is supposed to be 60.
