Weekend Skiing with Sam

Today we finally had our first ski outing of the season, long overdue considering how much snow we've had. This time would be different though- Sam's first time out with his mom and dad.

Here is the quiver, or part of it anyhow. Left to right: Maggie, Anna, Kim, Bill. There are a couple other pair but these are the most frequently used.

It was a warm day, low 30s, so a good one to introduce the lad to gliding through the forest. We headed to the familiar paths of the large farm owned by the university. We got Sam loaded up in the backpack and headed off. It's been many years since his sisters were this size, so it took me a few moments to get my rhythm going, but did so without too much trouble. Here we are in the woods.

We skied for about an hour and a half. Sam enjoyed himself and was awake for most of the time. The wind caught us on the way back to the car, a pretty strong one up on top of the ridge and that wasn't fun for any of us. It didn't take long to get back to the car though.

Here is some video Kim took:
