Kids hanging out in the loft which it only took about five minutes to ban from the boys. Not only was it completely nerve racking thinking they were going to fall but they also thought it was lots of fun to throw all our gear being stored up there over the edge.
As a result they were banned to the main level, which again only took us about five minutes to realize we then had to clear everything off the table and shelves in reach of the boys. They did great but there was very rarely any down time with these two awake!
The second day skiing to the next cabin was beautiful with no wind and the girls and I had a great ski. Again champs, and they skied about three and half miles that day and about three miles on the first.
This cabin we stayed at for two nights and it was beautiful. It was at the top of this hill so you could look out and see all the mountains for miles. The kids enjoyed having more time to hang out and play in the snow.
Hayden was a hoot, he loved being outside and had to walk every where. He never wanted to ride in the sled because he always wanted to walk and explore. He wasn't afraid of anything and would go anywhere. Canyon, on the other hand, we were lucky if we could get him to take two steps. He loved to be outside but wanted to be held or carried.
On our third day we went for a family ski since there was no hauling of gear that needed to be done. Jeff told the girls that we could build a fire, but since the snow was waist deep as soon as you stepped off the trail we had to build it right next to it. Again, Hayden in the purple wanting to walk everywhere and Canyon happy sitting in Jeff's lap. The girls drinking hot chocolate, we never went anywhere without it!
Canyon loved the snow machine and on that third day Jeff took the girls and went for a ride and then came back and took the boys and I. I was driving and at one point was trying to miss some ice and my front ski went off the trail and immediately sunk. I was going slow at the time and we tipped over. Jeff was able to hold Hayden out of the snow but Canyon was riding in front of me and when we tipped his face went right in the snow. He was such a good sport though and when I lifted him up he could care less that he had snow all over his face. Instead, as soon as he saw that the snow machine was tipped over he kept pointing and saying up oh. Way to go Mom!
The boys did great in the cabin and never got near the fire. They were so cute though and when we would come inside after being outside they would get as close as they dared and bend over with their hands out to get them warm. I tried to get the picture when they were both doing it but only managed to get Canyon.
A family picture before our final departure on our last day. I was happy because when we were getting ready to leave I asked the girls if they had a choice would they rather be going home right now or to another cabin, and they both said to another cabin. We all had a great time and are looking forward to next year when we can do it again, and possibly for longer and see some more cabins.
