On December 27, our entire family headed to Park City, Utah to ski at our favorite resort, Deer Valley. This was Will's and Lena's first time to fly since bringing them home from Moldova. Packing for the trip was a major undertaking! We arrived at night and driving through Park City from Kimball Junction was beautiful. They really had decorated for Christmas and against the backdrop of the snow, the lights sparkled on the trees.
It was extremely cold during the week but the snow was great! Will and Hope attended ski school. Hope did very well and was skiing greens without any problems except going too fast! This was her second ski trip where she actually skied. Will did really well for a beginner but his instructor said something about "not listening" very well. Hmmm.....seems like I may have mentioned that a time or two to him as well! We were not up for Lena going to ski school - just wearing the boots would have done her in but maybe next time! They all three really enjoyed the snow and being out in it!
A special thanks to some great friends who let us use their amazing home while we were there. We even had a theater with a climbing wall! We had a beautiful view of old Park City from the den and kitchen and enjoyed all the lights at night!
