Hannah was off in San Francisco and Donald was at work, so the three of us headed to the mountains!
This was the first time I'd ever taken the kids skiing without Donald.
My only concern was how Jenelle would do.
She'd never skied with poles before and was used to having Donald help her along some flat or uphill areas and assist her in getting up when she fell.
Well...she did so great!
She was very independent and able to handle herself in every situation!
And Ivan even did a black run by himself!
We had sun off and on all day, but when we first arrived, the clouds hadn't completely socked in Mt. Rainier and we could just see the very top of it before it was covered completely.
I was expecting it to be pretty busy since it was spring break but we lucked out and there were very few people there!
No lines at the lifts!
After skiing down the front of the mountain for a while, we went to the newer Basin area.
It is so gorgeous there...like being on top of the world!
We skied until they closed the lifts and it was just in time because my knees were about to give out and we were all tired!
So much fun!
It was a great day!
