Ski trip photos

I know . . . They're over a month old.

So sue me. I just haven't had the time inclination to post them 'til now.

This first one (below) is the view facing north from near the top of the mountain.


Then I just zoomed in a little on the "dome" in the foreground. That was one of our favorite areas to ski.


The next shot is taken from the very top looking back the other way, toward the southwest. The rope in the foreground with the orange tie on it marks the boundary of the ski area.


Again at the very top of the mountain, I had to stop Carol and take a picture of her. That's my wonderful wife in the white jacket!


Then the obligatory "family" picture of my three favorite women in the whole world! (Amy just wouldn't take off her goggles! And Joy -- Christina to many of you -- seemed to have a signpost growing our of her head. That's one of my professional photography traits.)


And here (again below) is a slightly distant shot of Joy, now standing again, just after she had collided hard with one of the padded posts holding up the signboard beside her.

That's what I was referring to in the last post's comments about the necessity of wearing a helmet!


And lastly, here's a shot of the WHOLE CREW in our matching ski sweaters, each one lovingly handmade by Carol.

Great photos.

Even greater family.

These are the times to be cherished.

What better way than to take photos to remind you?

Thanks for sharing.

Love the photos. If I knew you were rich I would sue you - I need the money. *laughs*

Nice pics. Thanks for not going into too much detail about the sign post collision!

Christina,

What? You didn't want me to tell about you being drunk and all? Don't worry, I won't.

What great family outing. Nice sweaters. Maybe one of these days I'll actually be able to knit something like that.
