On the slopes Day 1

I think the winter ski vacation may become an annual tradition here in the Lucas home.  The kids have really enjoyed the whole experience.

We arrived in Red River around 4 pm on Wednesday.  Just enough time to unpack , open a bottle of wine then head out to grab some dinner at Cabos the local Italian place.  When we got back the kids headed out to play in the snow and the grown ups sat around unwinding from the stressful drive.  The guys planned to head out early to ski.  Tina and I and the kids decided to take it easy in the morning, have breakfast, THEN begin the daunting task of getting 4 kids outfitted  to ski.  We planned to meet the guys at noon, we figured we could use their help getting everyone fitted with skiis and boots.  We thought everyone should start out with at least a half day of ski school to get reaclimated.

 Here are three of our four in their base layer and matching ski socks.

 Pumpkin looked the part, she was ready!

 Before we can leave we have to find the car.  It was covered in snow!

 It took Tyson all of 2 minutes to get his "ski legs."

One push!  That was all it took.  We didn't see Tyson too much more on that beginner slope.  He was a natural.

 After we got home we decided to go look for deer to feed.

 The kids had so much fun collecting giant icicles!  Good thing since we were unsuccessful in locating any deer.

 This was our cabin!  And it was PERFECT!

 These were taken right outside the front of our cabin.

I made lasagna for dinner and it was so tasty, there is just something about eating a warm dinner after a long day of skiing while snow is falling outside.  Pure bliss.

Day 1 was a success!
