A Saturday in Summit

This is a busy week in our little county.  We are overrun by tourists.  There is lots of traffic and everywhere we go is packed.  We thought about skiing today but with it being a Saturday and a crazy week, we opted for something different.

Ice Skating.

Our little pond across the street from our neighborhood was a perfect spot for a fun morning together.  And we were the only ones there!  Unfortunately, Sam couldn’t join us because he had ski practice. We enjoyed a competitive family hockey match and skated around for almost two hours!

Ski weekend

We have had a busy weekend of skiing. Sam had a couple ski mountaineering races and Paige has two Nordic races. Whew! Lots of driving for Scott and I this weekend! Here are a couple videos of our kids. We are so proud of how hard they worked!!! One more race for Paige tomorrow.

Here is Sam at one of the transitions in his long race today. He started out really well but had trouble with his skins and fell back. He was hoping to qualify for the world skimo championship in Switzerland but that didn’t happen today.

This is Paige’s first classic start. She had a great ski and qualified for the semifinals.

Have a great night!


My birthday {44}

I finally learned this year…to take the day off on my birthday! It was a great day. I read my book, Christmas shopped, went out for lunch and took a long ski. Everybody but Paige was gone on the night of my birthday so she and I ordered pizza and watched a movie.

Here’s to another year around the sun.
