Ski Ya Later

I haven’t had a family ski weekend since college.

The wait is over.

How cool is my mom skiing with her grandsons?

Not only do I have a skier (Ryan), but I have a skiing joke Ryan thought up on the chairlift:

How does a skier say goodbye? Ski Ya Later.

Apres ski with the rest of the family was nearly as fun.

A mix of cousins – my kids + my sister in law’s kids + my sister’s kids – had a blast together, all marvelously hosted by my in-laws.

There was yoga.

And lots of puzzles and games and Hide-and-Seek.  The grandparents and outdoors provided the bulk of the entertainment but in the downtime, we had fun with some downloads from a smart and adorable website, Mr. Printables.  I printed this set of ABC flashcards and the 3 to 6 year olds ran around the house finding objects and people starting with each letter, then handing the cards over to the “writing” cousins for labeling.

I guess we should have expected this when we got to “T is for…”

We also liked this 6 page “doodle on the moon” activity (can print twice as big on 12 pages too).

The frozen lake surrounding the house felt a bit like the moon to me (except there was plenty of gravity and I have the bruises to prove it).

Lots of happy campers. Me included.  As my older sister watched me play the Disney HedBanz game with our kids, she said I looked completely returned to (or did she say stuck in?) my childhood.  No matter. Not such a bad place to be.
