We went back for another Monday Night Madness at Shawnee Peak last night. This time we took Claire. It was her first time on skis, and she did great. Better than great, actually. She was really excited to go, got more excited when we picked up skis 'just my size!', and was completely impatient while getting bundled up. She could see the hill and wanted to be skiing rather than doing silly things, like taking pictures:
Her first time down, as soon as she was within earshot, I could hear "Faster Daddy! Faster!" She went through the learning area twice before she was bored with it and wanted to move on to the chair lifts. We couldn't tell if Claire liked the actual skiing or the chair lift better. They both were fun rides.
Mike really cruised with her, and she loved it. She didn't even complain about the cold (it was 5 degrees), earning the title Perfect Skiing Partner. I'm so proud of her!
