a) tears (okay, a few mentally, but I kept it well inside)
b) collisions (amazingly I did not hit a tree, impressive)
c) injuries (although my legs are quite stiff today... another sign of zombie-ism?)
Although I stayed in snowplow snake (my term... you know, when you zigzag wildly across the entirety of the hill) the entire time, I think it went rather well. I may not have been the most graceful (but then, when am I ever?) but I had fun!
Warning: photo avalanche follows... I hope you're not buried!
the obligatory graceful chair pose in the lobby... don't I look perfectly lodge-like?
and again, be astounded by the beauty and grace. Cécile is a little less enthusiastic... perhaps wondering why she invited me...
the stuffies are prepared to devour all the gummies before Cécile and Kori can get to them!
my latest superpower: I can fly! however, I am also adept at falling on my face...
Note I and Kori's favourite shirts of the moment: grey sparkly owl sweater and green Celtics hoodie! one last pretty photo before the hot tub
various "the bachelor" reactions: what is this? does he have a harem?
needless to say, we were not impressed.
And on that cheerful note... the next day begins. Drumroll please!
Girl Rule: there must be at least one mirror selfie per trip!
thank you Kori for ensuring that Cécile and I were not driven mad by our hair!
she makes putting on ski goggles look cool.
all ready to head out! (note that we haven't started yet... aka no looks of terror)
be impressed by the snowplow. I'm still amazed I didn't cross my skis...
OMG we survived a blue run! what is this!
alternatively, I may be about to eat Cécile's ear. I was pretty hungry
the sweater trade! betraying our schools, muahaha
...and then we returned home, and nearly fell asleep in the car, and I went to work, and daily life returned.
Sometimes you just need a lovely break from reality. Thank you, my dearest friend-people (and to Cécile's wonderful parents) for making this possible!
