One Last Kick at Winter

So we left it for the very end, but Hunter and I did get out for a day on the hills.  Last Sunday we got up nice and early and hit the highways.  The roads were pretty bad in the morning and it took us longer than expected to get to Nakiska. Once we were there the weather was pretty mild and it snowed most of the day giving us a great time on the hills.

We put in a couple runs before Hunter's lesson to warm him up and then I powered through 6 runs in the 1.5 hours of his lesson.  It was fast and furious, reminding me how skiing once a year doesn't really get you in shape.  We followed the morning with a relaxing lunch and then a couple more runs before everyone was tired and we headed for home.

All in all a great time.

So I have heard that it is important to set a routine before bed and that a bath and massage is recommended.  It is a good way to relax your baby and prepare her for a long night of peaceful dreams.  We thought we would give it a try.  Unfortunately (and fortunately), Sophie loooves the bath but it seems to have the opposite effect of her.

Also, she hates massages.  She screams when I try to rub her down with cream after her bath.  However, it may simply be because I have taken her out of the bath that she enjoys so much.
