Today I decided to skip naps to make the most of the warm fall day. Climbing to the top of the ski jump is a favorite fall activity. Here are the stairs to get to the base of the jump. The stairs were new when my boys were two and four. There are quite a few in need of repair now.
This is the first set of stairs at the base of the jump. I don't think my boys ever made it past the top of these stairs at this age. The curse of being the first grand kids, I guess. It must seem easier when a group of older kids are going up first.
The view is always worth it.
Ugh! Going down is the hardest part.
From my mom's camera:
"Almost down, Mama!"
Sillies on the chair lift at the top of the ski hill.
The tail gate party at the bottom of the hill.
Yeah. We just did that!
