Ski Trip - Kingsmere to Keogan's

February 10, 2013

Karine and the boys joined Grandpa and Barbara for play and lunch at Chamberlain's Lookout on Friday, Februray 8. Now it was Sunday,  a perfect day for skiing. Lots of fresh snow. Kirk`s friend, Ross, had got new skis for his birthday yesterday, so Ross and his parents, Faith and Jim, joined the Chelsea Bowmans, grandparents, Uncle Grant and friend, Jodi, for a good ski together. Although Sam and David travelled to Keogan`s lodge in the double chariot, Ross hung on to the back of his chariot and tested out his new skis.



 
 
We all got together at Keogan`s for lunch - check out the woodstove for sandwiches toasting and Chinese noodles warming up (first day of the Chinese New Year). We had snacks and drinks while the woodstove was doing its job. David happily played with a drinking bottle lid.





 
Soon the tin foil packs arrived the table and we all dug in. A special treat was some of Ross's leftover 'lion' birthday cake.





 
David gave us a big smile.


 
Sam and Ross checked out the action at the bird feeder.

 
It was time to ski back. The three year olds worked hard.






 
Check out a 'downhill' video:

Ross hopped into his chariot.



 
Jodi gave Kirk a break from chariot pulling.


 
Kirk and Sam skied down Excelsior and back to the parking lot together.




Grandpa followed close behind with the GoPro running.  See the video -

High fives at the end of the trail!




 
Time to load up and head home.
