In January, we sent Logan to Colorado for my family's annual ski trip. He had the opportunity to fly on an airplane alone both directions, spend time with family, and learn to ski! He surprised everyone by how aggressive he was on skis, and his instructor said that he should have been in a more difficult lesson.
He had so much fun! He was in a lesson the first day, and then he skied with everyone the second day. My dad stayed with him the whole day and said it was one of his (my dad's) favorite ski days ever.
Hilarious story: My dad spent a lot of time skiing backwards in front of Logan in order to teach him to go back and forth on the mountain (Logan wanted to ski straight down...no fear!). On one run, Logan failed to tell my dad that he was heading straight for a tree; he skied backwards right into it! Thankfully, they were going slow enough that he wasn't hurt.
video and this one as well.
I'm excited to go on the ski trip next year and ski with my boy! We haven't made it back for the trip as a family since we moved to Iowa.
