Snow Skiing has been a family favorite for us since the kids were young, but this is our first ski trip with our new son-in-law, Eli. He took a lesson on our first day there and by the end of the week he was carving the snow like Peekaboo Street!
Winter Park is a special place! We still love Steamboat Springs, but Winter Park is closer and has a greater verity of easy green runs for the less daring and blues and blacks for the crazies.
Our constant ski companions for the past few years were there: Scott and Kara Holmes, Paul and Cindy Burke - We enjoy these friends so much!
We were also joined by Coy Watson, who has skied with is before and Steve Schaaf who skied with us this year for the first time but I doubt it will be the last time!
Two of our favorite ski buddies were back this year - Mike and Jaclyn Reale. One of the things that made this trip so special was the Reales bringing their three precious daughters on the trip.
Seven years ago, we joined the Holmes and the Burkes in praying for Mike and Jaclyn who were struggling with infertility. Within weeks, Jaclyn was pregnant and this year we got to rejoice over three wonderful little miracles that God has blessed this precious couple with! Here's a pic with the three couples who prayed and the Reale's fist little miracle - Audra Claire.
