Another day on the slopes

Team W took on another skier today. I'm not going to lie, he was the cutest skier on the mountain! And, he did great! He even got to ride the big lift a few times and go down one of the same runs as everyone else, which made him feel very big indeed. We had so much fun, despite a few spectacular, but non-injurious crashes and embarrassing mishaps at the lift. (I'm not naming names, but someone entered the chair area too soon, got hit by a lift chair, lost a ski in the process, and had to ride up and dismount on one ski, before having the other ski delivered by the instructors in the next chair. Someone else managed to get one leg through the turnstile but not the other, became stuck, and had to be rescued by the staff.) My favorite part of the day was watching the kids bonding, as they alternately raced and waited on one another, and as they helped each other out and cheered each other on. Up on the mountain, they weren't just siblings, they were friends. It was awesome!

The gang's all here!

These two guys needed a little ski break
and some time to just play in the snow.
