Ski Weekend!

Last weekend we met the MacMillan's and Ramsamooj's in at Wintergreen Resort in Virginia for a weekend of skiing! We rented a really nice (and BIG!) house on the mountain. Unfortunately there wasn't much snow around the house, but there was plenty to play with in on the ski mountain. The kids had a great time playing together just like the "old days" in Elizabeth City. The adults had a great time catching up, enjoying good food, and playing games. The girls kicked some booty in Trivial Pursuit, the 90's edition. Wintergreen has an area called Ridgley's Fun Park, designed specifically for younger kids. It had a mini-tubing carousel, bear paw snow shoes, tunnels, plus a hill for tubing. There was also a huge tee-pee that was a great place to warm up and make s'mores. We ended up going there two mornings. The third day all the kids went to the Snow Play program while some of us skied and others hit the spa. It was a fun weekend. Just the right amount of time away!

The Four crazy ones! Mealtimes were a little noisy!

Jackson and Ali racing down the hill!

I think Jackson like the moving sidewalk the best!!

Ali and Jackson-they must have gone down together about 20 times. So cute!

We took lots of video too. I will post some once I get a chance to look through them!
