So This is SNOW!!!

So this is what snow looks, it is cold!!!! Mason and Katie Beth got to see snow for the first time this last week when we made a trip to go skiing in Banner Elk, NC with a group from church. When we first got there, I caught Mason and Katie Beth just looking around soaking it all in.

What's snow without a snow fight! Katie Beth had her first snow fight with Ms. Leslie.

Greg and I had fun together getting to go down the slopes a couple of times together without having to help the kids.

Emerson enjoyed the snow for a little while, but spent most of the day in the lodge.

On the bunny slope learning this whole concept of keeping your balance on basically...ICE.

Mason decided snowboarding was what he wanted to try and he picked it up very well. Mason starting to get the hang of it on the bunny slope.

In line for the chair lift to do the "REAL DEAL".

Mason and KB did so awesome overall. Mason made several runs down the green slope and a few down a blue slope. Katie Beth went down the green slope 4 times and was very proud of herself. Even though we had success by the end of the day, that doesn't mean we didn't have quite a few spills.

After Katie Beth's first time down the green slope which is right behind us.
