Ski Weekend And Videos

Hello, friends.

I've been searching high and low for ski/snow/board gear this week.  Finally got everything together for our little get away to Big Bear in Big Bear Lake, California.

A couple of hours inland.  With an altitude of nearly 7,000 feet, we're in for a big change.

Most of you know we spent 3 years in lovely Colorado and then 1.5 years in Kansas City.  Our kiddos have been lucky enough to be on skis at an early age, with Carter switching to snowboarding at age 6. 

Because skiing is just plain lame.

I know this because I've looked all over San Diego for bitty skis and no one has them.  Dude laughed at me when I inquired at Play it Again Sports.

"No one skis anymore, dude.  We can't sell 'em, so we don't stock 'em."


A few videos from years past.  Good stuff, peeps.  Don't miss them.

Back Monday with a recap from our trip.  Later!

Snow Creek, Missouri - Here is Lainey screaming at me to back up.  You know, because she's a super star.

Arapahoe Basin, Colorado - Best eye roll ever by a 2 year old.

Beaver Creek, Colorado - Who will win?

Snow Creek, Missouri - Don't mind the minor concussion and Blake's 1 second assessment of our youngest child's condition.

Go Fard Away - TOTALLY reminds me of ET but she's way cuter of course :)

SO fun to see Carter and I's race... what a fun trip that was.

We can't wait to see you guys!

I could probably (not likely but probably) ski with Lainey. If she still skied at that speed. Never mind...who am I kidding?

Have a great time!

2 year old Lainey is adorbs. And she took a nice fall in that last video. Poor thing. At least you had good music playing to that one! =)

Oh, imagine that. You're on vacation. SHOCKER.

OMG. LOVE the old school videos. Lainey with a bebe voice. Darling. Love Jack just running around, back and forth back and forth while Blake helps Laine. I hope you did some videos in Big Bear.

I am sooooo jealous of your trip. I couldn't ski at all this winter because I was carrying Quinn with me and the doctor seemed to frown upon me swooshing down a mountain whilst Preggo. Lame.
Hann and I loved watching vids of the little punks skiing during law school. We have decided that as soon as Quinn can stand/walk, she will be on skiis. Can't wait to hear all about your adventure and see pics!
