One of the days in Banff we got to brush up on our skiing ability.
Carter stayed behind to swim with Nana and Ba while the kiddos of all ages hit the slopes.
and ready to ski!
Mind you it had been about 8 years since I had done this previously. So that actually left me as the most refreshed skier.
Was I awesome?
In many ways, yes.
John was REALLY good.
And our marriage almost failed us as he took me down a Double Black....for the second time.
He was warned after the first time.
But somehow there we were on the same slope again.
It was so steep I couldn't even turn. I skied/slid down the entire mountain on one leg.
I was sore the next day.
I should have stuck with Shae!
We had a blast together!
She and (her) John were much smarter and found a way off the Black on the FIRST run!!
Me and (my) John? We somehow managed to complete it twice.
Mind you there were about one hundred 7 Year Olds skiing so fast, with their poles held out horizontally in front of their bodies, whizzing next to us/me.
Again, I was cursing under my breath and sliding down on one side.
Aww, but when you are here...it's fun no matter what!
Really, it was a blast, once I realized I was going to live through skiing with my husband!!
What an awesome day!!!
