As promised, here are the photos from our wonderful ski vacation to Keystone with my sister Meg and her family. We had such a great time. Meg's kids, Catherine (7) and George (3), are delightful, and Sidamo and Nora just adore them. We spent the week skiing (well, I only took one run—I've turned chicken), cooking yummy dinners, playing, drinking good wine … So much fun.
Nora discovers the delights of the exersaucer. Why didn't I think of putting her in one of these before?
Putting on skis for the first time ever. These are plastic practice skis; we didn't expect Sidamo to like skiing—he's a little freaked out by new experiences—so we didn't want to rent skis before giving him a chance to experiment.
I stripped her down to her diaper beforehand, but I had to change even that after she was done. Full-body avocado mask, for the low price of 77 cents.
After determining that Sidamo was a fan of skiing, we rented skis for him and put him on the official bunny hill. This was his first time on a ski lift, with Uncle Andrew.
Sidamo discovered the magic of the iPhone. He and George shared one of many special moments watching Dora/Diego after a dip in the hot tub. And yes, George is sitting in a Bumbo seat.
