December Wintergreen Trip

I know this is a little late, but in December we took all three kids to Wintergreen.  After an event-filled 35 minute drive from the hotel to the resort, which included several stops along the mountain roads, one of which included Pacey throwing up, we spent a few hours in the morning tubing, which for the boys, was the hit of the day.  Gage was not interested in learning to ski, but Pacey and I took a snowboarding lesson together.  He was quite brave and picked it up pretty quickly!  We learned a bit about taking small ones skiing/snowboarding, but in all, it was a great day.  We came home exhausted and happy with lots of stories to tell... "Remember when we had to stop along a curvy mountain road in Charlottesville, so Pacey could throw up at the end of someone's driveway?" Ya, I'm sure that will be part of family folklore for many years to come!  

Check out the pictures in Picasa.

And here is a sample video of tubing.

Pacey's Bike Riding Adventure

Since the weekend was so nice, I decided it was finally time to get the training wheels off of Pacey's bike and get him up on two wheels.  With the promise of a new bike, he was ready to go. I took the training wheels off, and with two quick times across the front yard with me holding the seat he was off and on his own.  By the end of the day Sunday, he was doing "tricks" and taking his feet off of the pedals.  Sigh.  :)  So shortly into the future, we will be bike shopping! Enjoy the video!
