Split Skiing

With the new puppy, we weren’t quite sure what to do with our weekend in Winter Park. Originally we were going to ask a friend, but after a week of puppy time, we realized that would be a huge imposition. So we decided to split things. Tia was going to take the kids up Friday and then I’d come up Saturday and we’d switch. We talked about bringing the puppy or having someone watch her for a few hours, but in the end we met halfway.

And we reversed things. Tia was tired after traveling this week, so I took the boys up Friday. Kendall wanted to stay with Tia, and so it was boys night, with dominos and a few beers (milk for Delaney).


Saturday we got up to ski, not too late, and headed to the slopes.


We had some good runs, and then Delaney got run into by someone, and he was getting cold, so we stopped for lunch.


We got a couple more in, but it was cold and we knocked off around 2:00-2:30 and headed back to the condo. A good day, though not a great one on the slopes. The snow was OK,  and it was coming down while we were there, but it was chilly. Not too crowded, and it would have been a great weekend with all of us.

We got back to the condo, and I went running, expecting Tia to come up soon. She called when Delaney and I were playing ping pong and said she was heading up, but she was bringing the puppy and wanted me to meet her halfway. So I grabbed food for the boys and then headed home.

Saturday night traffic during ski season stinks. I made it over the pass fine, but once I hit I-70, I was moving at 15-20mph to Idaho Springs where I stopped and met Tia. We moved some stuff between cars and then I headed back and she headed up. Once again, slow traffic until I hit C-470, then it was an easy drive home.

They’re having fun today, I hope, and I’m cooking and cleaning a bit. Trying to turn the bottom item into the top one:
