It was the first day of skiing for the whole crew -- and it was fun! Jake took to skiing, and kept going up the tow rope without taking a break. We had to drag him off of the little hill. When he returned his skis, he told the guy, "I had so much fun on those!" Annie didn't take to it as easily as her brother, but she still did well. She's bold, but unable to stop when she needs to. More lessons and practice are needed, but hopefully they'll both be strong, confident skiers soon enough. Certainly, it has been a great start. I had a fantastic time skiing, but forgot about some of the leg muscles necessary. The day ended with some wood-fired pizza and a bloody mary. Not too bad!
