After all these years…

I went downhill skiing one time … hated it. Something to do with being on the side of a mountain, a fear of heights, and having absolutely NO control BUT I’ve wanted to go Cross Country Skiing and never could talk Keith into it until today with the kids. I think we’ll go back for a lesson but we had a great time and it was so peaceful and beautiful on the trail.

Chris and Becky on the trail…..

After 3.4 miles I could still smile!

    We used to XCountry ski…so peaceful. Well, except for the sound of my heavy breathing. 😉 Glad you enjoyed it.
    Merry Christmas!

    Good for you Mary! Fun family sport to do with your family. Also, excellent exercise & safer then downhill skiing. Brings back a lot of memories skiing with our sons but we did downhill.

    I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and thank you for sharing with all of us on your blog. Thank you for all the quilts you brought to the Ronald Mcdonald house. You’re a very caring person and I think it just comes naturally to you. Best wishes for a wonderful holiday with your family.

    Looks like you had fun. We haven’t gotten any snow so far, they say maybe Christmas day. I hope.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    Looks like so much fun. I didn’t like downhill skiing either and I’m probably too lazy for xcountry. I’ve been reading your archived blog posts – I grew up in Norfolk, VA and have a cousin in Newport News (still there). So Merry Christmas to another VA girl!

    I’ve never been on ski’s & feel I’m with you – heights an all…

    Looks like a fun day out.

    Love Leanne
