Ski Vacation


The kids had a great time on their vacation in Vermont.  Unlike here there was plenty of snow there to play in.  They stopped at the Ben and Jerry's factory on the way and enjoyed seeing everything and tasting the samples.






They arrived at Smuggler's Notch Resort and T and D were very happy to find the huge indoor play area that is there!



The next morning they were ready to ski!








Mr. D was exhausted after being out all day but Miss T and Daddy went up to the top of the mountain a few times!  This is the view from the top of the chair lift.



A self portrait on the way up.


Daddy and Mr. D being goofy!





DIL doesn't ski but was on photographer duty all day.  She did get to enjoy the tubing with them.




They went about 900 miles before all was said and done.  It was a FUN week! 




Thursday already.  I have been so bogged down with paperwork concerning the lake house that I've hardly been able to do anything else.  Let me just give you a word to the wise,  make an inventory of everything in your home or summer property and put it in a safety deposit box!  You never know what is going to happen,  fire, earthquake, floods, frozen pipes etc etc and you will need to fill out all of these papers.  We were lucky, the things were still there, just ruined, but we were able to go in and see what needed to be on the list.  'Nuff said.   :o)

DIL and I went out and spent about three hours pricing new furniture one day this week.  A little overwhelming when you have a whole house to do but we had fun and I think we picked some things that will look nice once the cottage is back in shape.  Not sure just when that will be but I think there will be plenty of time before beach weather arrives.

Well must get back to the paper work.  Oh, if you didn't get a chance to see my last post on our spay and neuter day at the Humane Society please go back and take a looksy.  It was an exciting day and I am so happy to have been able to participate with such a wonderful group of volunteers!   :o)

It looks like they had such a wonderful time. I know how important that family time is for everyone.

That paperwork probably seems like it will never end. One thing that we have done here is to make a video of all the contents. We learned to do that when we lived in a fire area and have always tried to keep it updated. It was such a difficult job to list everything after the 1994 earthquake destroyed E's folk's home. Everything was in a million pieces.

I'll respond to your great e-mail later. Hugs.

Looks like a fun time was had by all.

Linds said...

Keeping a list sounds like a great idea. Doing it may not be fun, though. But necessary. And the video idea appeals too. I know I learnt so many things AFTER Geoff died, which I wish I had thought of before. I made sure all my friends knew what was important so they would at least benefit from my mistakes.
Ah, that snowy vacation looks wonderful. The grands certainly seem to have had a lot of fun!

KC said...

Looks like they had a wonderful trip.. Now I need to go back and read about what happen to the cottage.

Julie Harward said...

I loved spending all day skiing with our kids, the best of days! Good luck with the house..shopping for furniture sounds fun though! Come say hi :D

Sharon said...

It sure does look they had a great time.
That is very good advice as you just never know what can happen to your home or cabin.
Thanks for sharing.

Dawn said...

What a great trip to Vermont. DC has skiied with the kids since they were little - and I was the keeper of the home fires in the lodge - or at home making the chili for them to come home to.

Good advice - I'll have to get on that!

PEA said...

You would have to knock me out before you would be able to get me on the top of that chair lift! lol Geez that looks high up!!! I so enjoyed seeing all the pictures, it looks like they had a really fun time. D looks like I would after a long day playing outside. lol

I think it's good advice to copy down everything in the house, as you say you never know what can happen as you found out the hard way! I can well imagine what a huge job it will be to furnish the whole summer house again. At least the furniture stores will be happy with you! hehe

I was just outside to take a few pictures around the yard. You should see all the grass that's showing and some of it is turning green! That is NOT something we usually see here in March. My faerie garden is completely bare of snow so I`m worried about my rose bushes. Usually they stay protected from the cold weather by the snow. At least we`re having nothing but sunshine these days and temps in the30`s so I`m happy:-)

Have a wonderful weekend my friend. Love you. xoxoxo

Margaret Cloud said...

Ben & Jerry is my sons favorite ice cream. I enjoyed all your pictures, the kids look so cute and looks like they had fun. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Rising Rainbow said...

The kids look like they had a great time. Just hearing Ben and Jerry's made me drool. I need to forget those names if I'm ever going to get my weight back down to where my hunt boots will fit.

Boy! you are so right about that list! It's been on my to do list for far too long. I need to get my act together and get it done. Thanks for the reminder.

hippo chick said...

Looks like your family had a great time. What fun.

I'm glad you at least are able to account for your house contents. Thanks for the heads up. Our insurance man suggested we video all our closets, drawers, etc. Mine are never neat enough that I want to do that. I think when we get home, I'll take you up on your advice.

I hope you find furnishings that appeal to you and you can get them in time for summer.

Take care.

I believe what you said made a bunch of sense.
But, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer
headline? I ain't saying your content isn't good, however suppose you added a
headline that makes people desire more? I mean "Ski Vacation" is a little
boring. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write news titles to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything've got
to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit
more interesting.
