QT turned 5 and we hit the slopes for 5 days for his birthday celebration. The kids had a snowboard lesson on QT's birthday and Mr. A boarded with the kids the next day. We went ice skating at the top of Squaw and the kids did innertubing one day. We drove to Nevada for lunch so the kids could see Nevada. Mr. a invited his 11 year old goddaughter and her mom and 18 year old sister joined. We had a great time and the kids had a great time playing with their god sister.Mr. A planned a great trip!
We stayed at the same cabin we used for QT's 3rd birthday. Both kids learned to board very fast and it was fun to watch. Family vacations feel wonderful because we can tune the world out and enjoy being together. Kids grow so fast, so I relish these moments and memories.
I remember being at the Black Enterprise Ski Challenge in the late 90's and seeing the little kids getting lessons. I told myself I wanted that. I also saw the couples skiing together and I wanted to go skiing with my husband. So I love that Mr. A loves snowboarding and has introduced skiing and
boarding to our kids.
Years ago I dated a guy and my brother never said anything negative about the guy. He merely said, " if you marry x, your kids will never get to ski in Aspen." I realized my brother was correct. My kids are fortunate I thought about them when eliminating and choosing a mate. I am grateful I et and married Mr. A. We are a great team.
