Dylan showing off his snowplow moves
I had to snap this picture- this man is skiing with his 6 week old infant on his chest. For a long time we thought it was a doll because it did not move- but then she started crying so we knew she was real. I would never had been this brave- and I am a good skier.

We had a great time skiing. The boys had Monday off- so we hit the slopes. Trey and Bryce snowboarded and everyone else skied. Taya did a great job for her first time. She went down a hill, learned to walk in ski's and most importantly had fun- until she got cold.

Trey wanted to ski with Jen- but soon left her because she was too slow for him. Admittedly she is a cautious skier and takes 2 1/2 hours to get down 1 run. Ok maybe only 1 1/2 hours.

Toby is a die hard- he never stops- just goes up and down all day long. The boys are really good- I think all of them can do double black diamonds now.

Jen and I were not able to ski together because one of us was always with Taya- this was the only down fall- I do love to ski with her- but maybe next year.

It was a great family day- I am so fortunate that all my kids like hanging out with us- and we enjoy them as well.

Jen- took her ski's off too fast so I didn't get a picture of her with ski's on

Bryce snowboarding in for a landing

Toby- he has the snow plow mastered

Trey had more snow on him- then on the ground

Taya- first time skiing

Mom and Dylan in the lodge
