 Both the skiing and the sledding were fantastic last week.

Seems like a while ago now...

 Just a week ago this was happening, which is hard to believe given it has been full on winter mode since getting home.  

 Dash (with a little bit of help) made some pretty epic sand castles this trip.  

 Yep, these two are certainly related.  

 My favorite pic of us three to date.  Picture says it all.  

The crew.

 More from the trip that was to Hawaii.  Dash is an early riser, always has been, don't see it changing anytime soon, but, when you have views like this to wake up to, it could be worse!

 One of the best parts of the trip was that Dash flat out refused to wear shoes for 10 days straight.  Literally in SLC on the way there he took them off and never put them on again until back in the car in snow Jackson.  

Walking the 10th t box in the early morning wetness at the Sony Open.  

 Yea mom!  Dash's stroller buddy.  

 Hanging with Chels at the golf tourney.  

 Another day, another really pretty sunrise.  

 Dash was "digging" making "cold tubs".

 The crew, out exploring.  

Probably the most famous surf break on the planet!  Awesome to watch the action at Pipeline.

The islands

 Watching PGA Tour players warm up at 6 in the morn under a full moon with palm trees in the background after having been in snow just a few hours prior is a very cool thing!  

 THen again, so is hanging out on the beach.  

 Justin Thomas, the eventual winner of the tournament.  

 And Jordan Speith, one of, if not the best golfer on the planet.  Was super cool watching these dudes bomb it.  

The crew.  Couldnt get Dash to sit still long enough to get his entire self in the photo!

A little bit of both

 We just got back from Hawaii today, and it was amazing.  A bit of a shock to the system being back in winter from the tropics, but it was good to see ol man winter again.  The day we left we had the right window with flights, daycare, and an open window to go skiing together for a couple of runs pre getting on the flight.  It was super cool to ski in the morning, and then be in Hawaii in shorts and sandals by the evening.  

 No more than a bit over an hour later, off we went.

Making turns.....

 While we certainly dont get full ski days out at the big hill together anymore, when daycare, lunch break, and couple hour windows come together with fresh snow......, it brings many smiles!

One hell of  a storm cycle this week.

THe snow dude!

 It has been snowing a lot, our lil living space gets super small in a hurry, so......, we spend a ton of time outside, regardless of the elements.  It turns out Dash absolutely loves being out in the eye of the storms, jumping in the snow, playing in the tunnels, and sledding.  Getting him back home has turned into a monumental task!  

All bundled up with with Mom.

Starting the weekend off right....

 I was able to duck away for a couple of hours on Friday for a lunch time rip.  Well worth it, despite it being close to -30 out.  

Wow, the snow has been so good this winter.

The Holiday season might be over, but that doesn't mean that Dash isn't still in the mood!

It Happens

Drew demonstrating a more common than those that dont sled might realize situation.  Not to worry, no harming of any trees and or snowmobiles were done in this scenario.  He was ripping down the gully in three feet of powder, then hit a hallow spot, ski got stuck on the log, and well, add 800cc's of power to the mix, and this is what you get.

 Off on a mission to look for good packing snow to build a snow man.  Only issue...., it is Jackson, we dont normally have packing snow.  So...., no worries, we just added some water to the mix to harden it all and make a.....

In the ditches......

 December will be a month to remember for a long time to come in the valley for snow sports enthusiasts!  We set records for snowfall and it was awesome!  

Popping pillows on the last ride in December.  

And heading up the path less traveled!  Can you spot the other guys in the background waiting for Drew to clear the line before going?  This is the type of riding we live for!  Technical ditches, nobody else around, deep snow.

Out the back....

 Skiing out the back door.  The only bad part about going out sledding with Dash is when we have to go home!  He loves being in the sled so much that when we head home he freaks out, wanting to go for more, oblivious to the fact it is well below zero out!

New Years Eve done civilized!

Last night was a mellow affair for us, Chels made it to midnight, I did not.  Something about a child that wakes up at 5 every morning takes the fun out of staying up late!  

Earlier in the night Chels skied in the torchlight parade while Dash and I went to a buds place across the street from the King and took it all in there.  Twas a nice scene!
