Weekend Recap

Friday was exciting, Dave and I both got new skis!  We bought our skis back when we moved to Toronto in 2008 and we bought them at a ski show.  It was time for an upgrade. We did not get new boots and poles yet, but maybe next year.

Q attended a birthday party at a skating rink so it was fun to dust off the skates and take a few turns around the rink. 

On Saturday it was back to the ski hill.  It was cold that day, but the snow was pretty great. I joked that the amazing conditions came with the new skis! :)

E with some of his buddies at lunch.

See how my new skis match my outfit, this was a prime consideration when picking them out.

Dave’s skis also go with his jacket.

Q had a t-ball assessment that evening so we left as soon as race training was over. 

The assessment was pretty quick. He was cracking the ball off the tee, ready for summer!

On Sunday morning we dropped E and Dave at The Heights for E’s race and then Q and I went to our regular hill for Skidaddle, a fun race for the U8s and U10s. The kids could dress in costumes.

A few practice runs before the race.

I was volunteering with coat running and it was a bit hectic get up and down the hill and trying to catch Q’s runs. And I didn’t manage to get any photos. All in all it was a fun day for the kids.  Q finished 9th in his age group.

Podium dreams.

Meanwhile E had a great day for racing too. He placed 23rd out of 40 racers.  

The snow is hanging in there although ski season is nearing an end.  It’s definitely a lot of work to go up and back on both days in the weekend, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
