John was off this week for a little RandR (we’ve had some major changes going on in our family…I’ll share soon!) so when we realized it was going to be raingin all this week we decided to pack up and head for the mountains!! It was good to get away and enjoy some snow. It actually snowed for us while we were there. The kids LOVED it!! We stayed at a beautiful little place called the Lake Arrowhead Resort and just spent some good quality time together.
Andy was convinced that he was going to be a snowboarding super star by the time we left. Unfortunately they wouldn’t let him take a snowboard lesson until he had taken skiing lessons. Since skiing is a little easier than snowboarding they want you to have a grasp on that first. So, since it was $19 wednesday, John decided to take him skiing. Well, needless to say we TRIED to tell him just how hard it was going to be but he refused to believe us. After about 30 minutes he was done. I was hanging out with Ash at the bottom of the mountain and had to laugh watching him move about 2 feet and then fall over. He would just lay in the snow face down and refuse to get up. A LITTLE frustrated!! Poor little guy! At least he looked cute doing it, right???
About an hour after coming off the mountain he said totally out of the blue "mom, I NEVER EVER want to go skiing again for the rest of my LIFE!!!" love the drama of 5.
Have a great day!!
