Goodbye Old Man Winter

A day in the life of a Foster's Saturday skiing adventure.... 
(even though it's officially green and springtime now-- these were just on my camera and downloaded!)
1. Wake up waaaay too early. With blurry eyes and heads, head to McDonald's for a healthy, preservative-free breakfast. Only the best energy for a day on the slopes. (ha.)

2. Get there at the crack of dawn and freeze our behinds off getting our gear on.

3. Walk, drag, have Daddy carry, slip on ice, pull all our gear to find a Copper Mnt. bus.

4. Get our muscles goin' on a sloooow easy run.

4. Put on our winter layers--take off our winter layers-- put on 276 spf sunscreen:)
5. Rock it like superstars on top of the world.

6. The girls rock it, Josh does some jumps, I video like a proud Mama.

7. Take a breather and eat 3lbs of greasy french fries and drink cold beer.
Only the healthiest for The Foster's.(!!)

8. Soak up not only eachother, but the winterland/athletic crowd and incredible views.

9. Get too exhausted and....decide we. are. done.

10. The females in the car take snoozers on the 1 1/2 hour ride home.
