We decided to take a last minute trip up to the mountains after Thanksgiving in hopes that we could get Adler on the slopes for his first time. The Gallegos were able to join us, which was really fun! Below is a video of Adler's very first time (since he was 2 and things didn't quite work out well) skiing. As you can see, it was a huge hit. He later announced to the whole mountain, "I LOVE SKIING!" It was difficult to get him to go in for lunch and even more of a challenge to get him to quit at the end of the day. As we went to sleep last night he told me he was going to ski right away in the morning. I am glad he likes it, the only problem is getting him to buy into the idea that you need to be able to stop and slow down on your own. He likes to go fast.
The car was pretty packed, but we were able to carpool at least.
We stayed at Baba's house which has a balcony with a railing. As Shawn, Albert, Baba and I were talking the first evening (Brian was sick unfortunately that evening), a string with all of the these lovely notes came down from the balcony. The boys thought it was hilarious, and honestly, we did too. Boys will be boys and there are a lot worse things they could be doing!
