We have been so excited this winter to take Zach skiing for the first time. Even though cold weather is not my favorite thing, when it comes to skiing it's a whole other story. ; )
We just returned from Snowmass, Colorado. Some days we skied in the sunshine, others we skied in negative temperatures! Crazy. We were bundled up from head to toe and drank lots of hot chocolate along the way. My mom stayed with Mandy since Hunter is brand new. We missed ya'll so so much!
First day of ski school
A few hours after we dropped Z off we got "the call." Z was a bit overwhelmed in his class, so we changed him to a different one. He did well the rest of the week. Yea! I was very nervous. We knew we were pushing it taking him skiing at three years old, but we couldn't wait any longer. ; )
Jason & Z on the magic carpet
Skiing for the first time!
Z loved the "skittles" gondola. It's especially for kids in the colors of skittles.

(we had to label everything for ski school)
Monday we skied in this! It really wasn't as cold as it looks, I promise. Just lots of snow. ; )

Lots of sweet cousin time
Every time my family goes skiing we do devotions together. This is one of my favorite memories of the entire trip. I can't help but think about previous trips and what the LORD has done. Just four years ago I was struggling to get pregnant and now Z is here with us. The last ski trip two years ago I was pregnant with Reese and now we have Colson in our lives as well.
This year the "theme" was family. What a wonderful, difficult topic! I love talking about family, but it's also a tender subject because of Reese. We talked about our family on earth, our family in Heaven, and families in the Bible. GOD does restore and has purpose for each of us in our families!

Last day of ski school
We're so proud of him and can't wait to take Colson!
This is the life...Z's instructors pulled him and his friends in wagons from the door of the ski school building to the bottom of the bunny slope. Nice!
It was wonderful to focus on Z for a week, but we missed Colson so much! I am so ready to get him back in my arms. Jason's parents and grands got lots of sugar and kept him well entertained. Thank you, Gran & G-Dad!
Shannon also took some precious pics of Westin and Colson from their week together. This picture just melts my heart. They look like good buddies. ; )
For great is His love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD.
