We really wanted to fit one last weekend of skiing in before the hot weather began. We had also promised Claire and Jake that we would let them give skiing a try too. Kent headed up early Friday morning (May 7th) with the older girls for a full day of skiing and I met up with them that evening with the little guys. We had such a fun time with just our little family! We headed into Breckenridge for dinner and then spent the night in Keystone. We woke up early and headed to A Basin for a fun day.

The entire winter Jake has been obsessed with Batman. We have no idea why. He has never even seen a show with Batman in it. All week in anticipation of going skiing he had been asking for Batman skis. We just kind of laughed it off. He woke up insisting on wearing his Batman shirt. I guess he thinks superheros ski? When we got to the resort he walked right up to the rental counter and told the guy, "I need my Batman skis please!" The guy gave us a weird look and we had to explain to Jake that there are no Batman skis!!

This is Jake's look after realizing he was going to have to try and ski without "Batman skis"

Claire picked up on skiing amazingly fast. She was insistent on doing it by herself. By mid day she was moving up to the next slope and wanting to do the ski lift by herself. This girl has little fear in her. Her bravery and confidence will help her go far in life!

Our friend Warren and his daughter Kaylee met us up at the ski resort that morning. Kaylee is an excellent skier and it worked out great for us because Abbie loved to go off skiing with them while we hung with the other kids.
