Spring Break Skiing

Last week my parents took our family to Park City, Utah. This was Peyton and Parker's first year to ski. I think my Dad had been dreaming of this day since Peyton and Parker were born. My brother and I started skiing when we were the boys ages and he couldn't wait to get his grandsons on the slopes too.

Our little family picture at the bottom of the slopes.

Peyton and Parker spent the first two days in ski school. Here they are on the magic carpet ride.

While Peyton and Parker were in ski school, Josh and I were were able to ski with my Dad, Rick and Jessica. My Mom volunteered to stay with Jack at the house. We had a lot of fun together!
Josh and I about to ski down with the boys for the first time on day three of the trip.

Peyton had no fear at all. (I was very thankful for helmets this trip!) He would laugh all the way down and if he fell he would just laugh even harder. He had a blast.

Uncle Rick, Peyton and Josh skiing to the lift line.

I think this may have been Parker's favorite part of the day...the hot chocolate breaks on the mountain. He liked skiing but after his second run down the slopes he would start asking for hot chocolate.

I was so thankful for all of Nana's help this week with Jack! She's such a great Nana to the boys.

Peyton loved to start snowball fights.

Parker was not in the mood for pictures or snow ball fights at this moment, he just wanted to get on the lift. :)

Josh, Jessica, Rick and I.

We had a lot of fun but it was also a lot of work, traveling with three kids and skiing with two small kids. The boys loved spending extra time with their grandparents, Uncle Rick and Aunt Jessica. We can't wait to do it again! But now I am really ready for spring and warmer weather!
