Jay and Travis have gone skiing this weekend at Sugar Mountain. He has wanted to go for a couple years now, but well, the past few winters have not been great for our family :). So the time had come for Travis to learn to ski.
He and Jay took off early Friday afternoon, got there early evening, and got all the rental gear so they could hit the slopes at opening this morning. Jay said Travis woke up at 6am (after he didn't go to sleep from excitement until 11pm). As of the time I am writing this, they are STILL skiing, taking a break only for lunch/dinner.
Jay said Travis is an absolute natural at it, and Travis LOVES it. Here are just a few pictures Jay sent me from his cell phone today. I'm sure there will be "real" camera pictures to come after they come home (which will be sometime tomorrow night, they are going to ski more tomorrow).
In his rental ski's. Seeing that smile on his face, made me cry with happiness for him. This has been a long, patient wait in the making for him. And how cute are those little ski's? (100's!)
Riding the lift for the first time!
Going down! (he likes to just fly straight down, and go fast!)
