Even my little Squirt is up and running on skis this year.

I actually skied about 15 days this season (compared to the 50+ that each man in my family has skied). My dear friend Erin treated me to a free ski day at D**r Valley (normally too rich for my blood). And that's Ashley in the middle. She was about 12 months pregnant with cute little baby Cooper, so no skiing for her but she came and met us for lunch. If she didn't she knew we'd talk about her the entire time ;-).

AND - it is still snowing. The end.
