Josh's Birthday at the Hill

For Josh's 17th birthday we decided to take a day off and head to the hill with our good friends, Christin and Jake. The day was great, snow coming down but not too cold. First thing we hit "North Pole terrain Park", you can see some of those shots.After lunch we convinced Christin to ski as well using Dad's equipment, a little big but it didn't stop Christin! She said she hadn't skied since last year and wasn't that good, ha! She just took off with the kids leading the way. I did my best to keep up with them all. Each kid took her on their favorite runs, "Eyeball forest", "Bird Brain","Wacky Weasel Way", "Rainbow Row" and "Otter Slide". Most of those go through trees and have jumps in them, I don't do trees! However, one of the runs Ruth led us through "The Bat cave", I decided to follow them not knowing that Christin didn't even do it. There is a jump, not too big but enough to give me a little air and throw me off balance. Anna thinks I looked like a monkey trying to fly, not too flattering!! Anyway I hit the snow. Christin challenged me to go beyond my comfort level, and I did. Hey, by the way I did break my run record of ten, I'm now at twelve!!
After skiing all day Jake, a little sore, and Christin joined us to celebrate Josh's birthday with dinner and cake. Thanks you guys for making Josh's birthday special!!
