Snow Day!

Today was it. THE Snow Day! We've been planning a snow day all winter and we jumped on the chance to make the 90 mile drive today. It was simply GORGEOUS outside. No wind, temps in the upper 40's. We went to a little ski resort called Soda Springs. They have an area for children 12 and under called Planet Kids. The cost is just $15 and you get unlimited use of the tubing "carousel" as well as ski or snowboard rental for the small 40' learning slope and unlimited tubing down a similar 40' slope. The twins had a blast! oddly enough one of their favorite parts was outside "Planet Kids" just throwing snow balls and eating them too. Next year we may put them on ski's or snowboards. Abby seemed ready this year, she's a little daredevil. For more snow pictures click here.

Oh my gosh - that is so fun!! That looks like a great place to introduce the kids to the snow. What a great idea! You guys always seem to do lots of fun things with your kids.
