This Saturday we went skiing in Canada at Hiawatha. It was a bit windy in spots, but the sun was out and the tracks were fast because of the icy snow we received the day before. We managed to ski the entire Pinder system and still have time to take off our skis and explore a bit near the waterfall, which was still frozen.
When we got back into the states we did something very naughty. We were all extremely hungry and so we decided to eat at West Pier. The girls both had bacon cheeseburgers, and Steve and I had the double cheeseburger. These burgers are enormous, and considering we haven't purchased or cooked meat in months it was a very naughty thing to do.We also went for the fries and onion rings... I still feel guilty about it (but they were really good).
On Sunday we went to church, and when we got home the girls immediately put on their snow gear and went out to play in the woods. A little while later they were joined by two of their neighbor friends, who invited them to go snow tubing on the lake. Their dad had hooked up tubes to his snowmobile and was pulling them all the way around the lake, which he said was getting pretty slushy. This was definitely the highlight of their weekend.
With temperatures predicted to be up into the 40's all week, the snow is going to melt fast. This could very well be the last weekend we ski this year. :(
