After getting our rentals, signing up for lessons, lift tickets and off to the lift. I couldn't help but to think of my own father. I had such an appreciation for all those years he took all of us kids skiing year after year. Not only the cost, but the patience, perseverance, and all around good attitude under such potentially high stress time. I am so grateful to have grown up skiing, and easy it came back to me after all that time. I guess the 13 years was me being pregnant, breastfeeding, or caring for young children. I don't regret missing it and I'm so happy to share it with my boys now!
We headed home to the coast on New Years Day, we hiked into a Sahallie Falls to see an incredible waterfall with the biggest icecycles ever! Our next stop was Belknap hot springs. We took a quick soak to warm up and soothe tired muscles.
On our way home we all agreed the day was perfect. We greeted 2016 as a family, adventuring, being outdoors, and being together. Each year continues to get better with my tribe. Welcome 2016! To many more adventures as a family and individually, I look forward to it!
