This year, we planned a little ski trip with my cousin Sean, and his family. They have three kids as well, pretty much all the same age as our girls. The kids had an absolute blast together! We asked our babysitter if she could come with us to help with our little ones (Clara, 15mos and Sean, 17mos) while the adults and big kids skied. And, if you're wondering...yes, I did ski. Crazy, yes...but, honestly, I was so cautious and just enjoyed being outside! I figured that skiing can't be any more dangerous than walking across an icy parking lot, or whatever....I mean, hell, I trip and fall over our dogs! I take risks by driving my car, etc, and since I am not the type of person to just inside and do nothing, I had to get out and enjoy. So, I skied :)

After ski school, all 6 kids hung with our babysitter while the adults had some kid-free time in the hot tub. The kids eventually met us down at the pool and had some more fun! They think swimming outside in the winter is just the coolest thing. Ever. Later that evening, the kids went to bed, and the adults went out for a bite to eat at a local restaurant. This trip was the perfect mix of family time and adult time! It was awesome!
