Skiing attempt #2

We decided to try our luck at skiing again yesterday. The weather was gorgeous and the snow was just begging to be played in! Though I think Todd still had to work hard to get us out the door! The kids always complain about having to go outside and Todd had a grumpy sick wife! But we made it and had a fun time. Liston got his skis on and took off down the trail. Deacon was not happy about that because HE wanted to be in the front :) Those 2 are soooo competitive!

But we made it a little further down the trail than we did last time and it was great to get out! And I love Teton Canyon because it seems as long as you keep your eyes peeled you'll see a moose. I haven't been disappointed yet! Here's some pics from our day:

Off we go!

Told you I was grumpy!

Todd, on the other hand, was his usual happy self :)

Coleman doing what he loves best--eating snow!


Still happy!

What a cutie! On the way back to the car Coleman escaped from the backpack and was running everywhere! He sure is growing up too fast!


I never get tired of that shot!


When we stopped for a break Deacon spied a big boulder he wanted to climb so he set off into the snow! I could hear him keep telling himself, "I'm almost there! I'm almost there!" And sure enough, he made it!



The boys had fun playing on the big rock! If you look closely at one of these pics, you'll see Liston falling off!





Fun day!!!

Deacon Goofing around

Cross country skiing

We rented some cross country skis for the first time yesterday. We just headed up Teton canyon since it is groomed in the winter. Liston and Deacon had skis as well. They did really well. If Liston's parents had been better informed it would have been even better. He got a pair of skate skis with no traction on the bottom so he fell down alot. When we had him switch with Deacon half way he took off and didn't really fall down.

Didn't get any action shots since we had too much gear. And didn't want to stop and get the camera out.

You'll just have to take my word for it that the boys looked great skiing. Coleman was a trooper hanging out in the backpack.

Coleman really likes bears. He seems to like polar bears and panda the best. When I saw a black Friday deal for a big Kung Fu Panda I knew I had to get it for him because he would love it. I had someone go into work early for me so I could be at the store when they opened, to get the panda. It was one of the last presents that Coleman opened on Christmas. I knew it was going to be his favorite. He liked it at first until we pushed the toys buttons to make him talk and do his kick. Then Coleman ran away from it and didn't want anything to do with it. Then to add insult to injury while the panda was on the kitchen floor Coleman had put on his brothers laser tag guns and out of the blue he starts shooting the panda. He even got Liston to help him shoot it. See if I ever get up early on a black friday deal again.



After a few days he decided he likes him and drives us crazy pushing his buttons all day.
