Old pictures sometimes are the best

This is one of my favorite memories of a ski trip we took to New York about four years ago with Chris and Larry. We took my niece Katie and my nephew Cody with us; it was the first time either of them had been skiing. Cody went right for the speed ski's, while Vandy, Katie and Addie were snowboarders. I of course, ever faithful, stayed with plain ole ski's with Chris and Larry. We all had fried egg sammiches for lunch, which is a Grace tradition. (the sammiches stayed in the car while we skied all morning) The really cool thing about traditions is, although Addie doesn't particularly love egg sammiches, last month she and a group of her friends went skiing and I packed egg sammiches for them which were all consumed! It was really neat that Addie remembered the tradition from our trip to New York. So anyway, until Chris sends me the pictures from last weekends trip, I am sharing a couple ole pictures from Peek and Peak.

And this is Cody, all speed and no way to slow down but find a snowbank! Ah the good ole days again, when there was so little to worry about but a quick run to the hospital to set a broken bone! lol

The Return of the Vanderberg's

We had a fabulous time skiing at Boyne Mountain in Michigan. Chris and Larry met us up there Friday evening and it was go go go fun fun fun the entire long weekend!!!! We always have a great time with them no matter what we are doing .. hiking the Appalachian trail, celebrating Larry's big 50, fishing at Diehl Lake or the cabin, Mardi Gras celebrations or just plan visiting, we really don't need a reason. Anyway, this is a picture of us at Red Mesa Grille, the only real picture that was taken with my camera! More pictures to come once Chris sends them to me!!!
