Bryan took Chloë outside for a while to play in the snow, while I stayed in the lodge with Elaina while she napped. It's a good thing we had the trusty old iPhone with us, and got a few pictures.
Then Samuel and Katie stayed in the lodge for a while and Bryan and I got to do a few runs together! It was the first time I'd been snowboarding in two years, and only my second time in four years, so I was just a little bit excited.
It was quite nostalgic being back on the mountain where I learned to snowboard. 15 years ago (wow, really?) my family would go up to Schweitzer with a homeschoolers' group. I think we paid a meager $17 per person for rental gear, a lift ticket, and an hour-long lesson. Dad would camp out in the lodge and wait for us to come in for a cocoa break, cold and tired, but happy.
This time I was the one packing the cocoa (and coffee and bourbon) and sandwiches, as well as diapers and a play pen.
After lunch, Bryan and I took both of the girls out to play in the snow.
All packed up at the end of the day, waiting for the rest of the people we came with.
It was a great trip. My neck is still surprisingly sore.
