They've been at it for about 3 or 4 weekends now and with the weather being so darn cold I wasn't about to go stand in the subzero temperatures to watch them come down the bunny hill LOL! However, yesterday was the day to venture out.
They called around 1:15 to let us know they were having lunch then heading to town to the ski hill. It really is surprising how many layers of clothing a person can get on when faced with standing in the cold for a couple hours LOL...but you already know that we grandparents will do just about anything to see a smile on our grandkids little faces :)
Here's the gang, ready for their afternoon of fun!
Don't you just love those little skis that Cade is
learning on? LOL!
Grandpa had gone once before to watch them and help with Cade, so Cade was in full grandpa mode, wanting Papa to walk up the hill with him, help him get his skis on and then follow him back down the hill to help him back up again LOL!

getting Cade's skis on :)
I must say I was quite impressed and amazed at how quickly they all picked up their new sports of choice! Very little falling, bruising or complaining....as long as grandpa was there to help Hailee and Cade up the hill....hehehe!
It was a great afternoon watching the grandkids experience this new activity, and to see their huge smiles as they came swooshing towards grandma, and often, swooshing right on by.
We're really looking forward to the next time...as long as the weather cooperates LOL!
Grandma loves you
