my little skiier!

last week, lynn went skiing, for her first time, with her grade.

they were lucky enough to go to snowbasin and have a two hour lesson, then free skiing afterward.

I was lucky enough to head up, have lunch with her and spend the afternoon doing some runs with her.

it was my first time on the mountain in 4 years, and 15 since I have been to snowbasin.  they made many improvements for the 2002 winter olympics, and I had yet to enjoy them.

lynn, she’s a natural.  I will lay claim on her natural skill with my mayes genetics, knowing full well there are pitcher’s who enjoy skiing too..  she was just so good! 

I got there in time to see her finishing her first run.  I thought it was her fifth or sixth the way she came down that hill…  when she got to me I praised her for how well she did and asked her how many runs she had done.

“that was my first time coming down!”

holy.  crap.

we did a few runs on little cat, ate lunch, did a couple more runs on little cat, and she was bored.  she wanted to head up another lift and tackle more of the mountain.  (brave kid, again, it’s the mayes in her!)

we headed up the needles express gondola, and started at the top of the mountain.

there was one steep area that was all powder.  she had a hard time staying up, but she made it down!  we took the easy way down the rest of the way, taking sweet revenge to slo ride, and met back up with little cat.  she LOVED it.  but didn’t love the first part enough to do it again.  we played the rest of the afternoon on little cat, and stayed until they shut it down.

she was phenomenal, and I only fell 4 or 5 times…  not too bad!

I can’t wait to take her again!

I love being able to document these things, many thanks goes to my wonderful iphone, I have great video too thanks to this.

I used liv’s latest T + Mini Vol. 3 – Documented kit, split it so it is a one page layout of our fun day.

this kit includes all the goodness below:  the bokeh, the scratchy overlay, the paper, the scribbles, the frames, and masks..  liv includes it all and does it up right.

A field trip skiing??? Now that is a great place to live to be able to do that!! I think this layout is probably my favorite. Love, love it!!

That looks like such a fun day with your girlie! I'm pretty sure I fell way more than 4-5 times the last time I went skiing :-)
