We took off for a few days of snow skiing with the kids and my parents. Since we were driving from Little Rock to Breckenridge Colorado, which is a 15 and a 1/2 hour drive, we decided to do it through the night in hopes that the kids would sleep through a good portion of it!
Here's a beautiful shot of the Colorado sunrise that I awoke to the first time! : )
I do have to say over all it went well, though there was an hour there somewhere in Kansas where Lawson had a really hard time going to sleep and I will be honest, since I couldn't put my hands on the Benadryl, we stopped and got some Dramamine, half a pill later and a with a little more restlessness, he was out and resting soundly!
We arrived in Breckenridge to a beautiful, sunny, 41 degrees, absolutely perfect weather! We all went and rented our skis and boots then Mom and I made the necessary grocery run!
Getting fitted and ready!
We rented a ski in/walk out condo right at the base of Breckenridge, and its worked out great...with all the kids equipment to carry on top of ours, having to only walk a few yards made it convenient.
Here we were giving instructions and getting the boys prepped...we chose to use a harness with Lawson, its kind of like a leash for your dog, but we for sure didn't want him to get away from us!
We had to take a little break at the lodge for hot chocolate and snacks!
Here's crazy cute Lawson!
Here's Peyton and I coming off one of the lifts, he did great!
We got to celebrate Dad's birthday today! Happy Birthday Dad (G-Dad)!
It was a very enjoyable first day, the boys are excited to "go snowing" again tomorrow!
