Ski Beech

Sorry it took me so long to blog about our trip. I kept wanting to do it at work, but I didn't have my pictures so I wanted to wait until I got home. THEN I would forget. You know the drill. So anyway...

We had SUCH a good time on Beech Mountain. On the way there on Saturday
of course Leah wouldn't nap. We tried to get her to nap at the inn when we got there. No dice there either. We stayed at Beech Alpen Inn. It was sooo cute. Our room had 2 double beds in in with plenty of room for Leah's pack-n-play and room to play on the floor. She loved climbing up on the window seat and looking out at the people. She would shout "Hi, peoples!" out the window. That afternoon we bundled all up and decided to try out the sledding hill.

Leah was all gung ho the first time down the hill. Maybe if they hadn't fallen off the sled, she would have liked it. As it was she did not want to go down again. She and Daddy sat in the snow at the bottom and made a tiny snowman. She tasted the snow and said it tasted like icy water. She did like walking around in her boots though.

We ate dinner each night at yummy restaurants and then hung out at our inn for the evening. The first night Mike did a night skiing session and I sat in our inn's common room drinking hot chocolate and watching Food Network on their big screen TV. The second night Mike was gonna go out again, but he was exhausted and needed a little break. We played Sorry and Uno in the common room and watched Desparate Housewives. For out last day, Mike skiied a morning session and Leah and I met him there. He took a break and we played in a snowy playplace. Leah really liked climbing and sliding into the snow. We watched Mike come down the mountain a few times too. She kept looking for "Daddy's awnge hat".

I feel like we became our little family again after having friends live with us for so long. On that note, they are supposed to be closing this Thursday. So fingers crossed that we will have our house back next weekend!

We actually got a little sleet/rain the other night. County schools were closed (not my school) on Thursday. It was neat for Leah to go break the icicles off the cars. It may happen again tomorrow night. Here's hoping that schools (mine included) are closed Monday!
