Skiing Keystone- Take 1

This past week we had the opportunity to go skiing with the with my entire family in Keystone. We decided to put Gray on skis and see how he does, I mean the kid's 2 he should be skiing right?! Ha! It is pretty amazing seeing some of these youngsters zipping down the mountain. They are fearless. I guess they don't really know the risk involved. They are also pretty close the ground so the fall doesn't hurt as bad.
He we are trying to get Gray's gear on. Talk about a lot of work. He actually has no idea what's about to happen notice he's not yet crying.
He seemed okay at first if you had a tight grip on him. I mean, he had to feel that you were hanging on to his jacket. He would sort of freak out if he didn't feel a death grip on his jacket.
Leaning back a little to much. We kept telling him to lean forward a bit so he wouldn't fall backwards, not sure he understood what I was saying. Then, I got on my knees right in front of him. I pointed the tips of his skies down and began to ski to me. Then, I would move a little bit back and told him to ski to me again. This is the face I got.

Hilarious!! He was laughing and crying at the same time. He wanted to like it but was scared at the same time. Ha!

I think his favorite part of the day was riding the little magic carpet. He would get to the top and say again. I knew he wasn't talking about the skiing part but the little ride. He kept saying, "ride again, ride again."
Then, you've got Brennan who the minute he got his skis on he was zipping down the mountain. He was a natural. He would get to the top and say, "Self and I go fast." That's all that kid wanted to do was get some speed. Too funny!
This was her second time to go skiing so she was a little familiar with the routine but still not sure if she liked it. The first day she said they worked on stopping by doing the pizza wedge. Her right leg wasn't exactly doing what she wanted it to do so she was a little frustrated with that. That night before bed I asked her what she wanted to pray for and she said, "Please pray that my right leg would just do what it's supposed to do when I'm skiing. " So cute!
