How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Fun in the Snow

We finally took advantage of cold, snowy, Northern Illinois yesterday and went skiing.
It was a BEAUTIFUL day.
We had the place to ourselves. No lines at the lifts. A weekday package for $30 that included rentals, a 2 hour lesson, and all day lift tickets.
And yes, I participated and had fun.

This was our first skiing attempt and it went really well. Chance took off and tackled the bigger runs after a few times down the beginner slope.

Finn and I stayed on " Rookies Ridge" but he still got out there and tried it.

Today we are tired, sore, and have sunburned faces. But we had so much fun we're going back next season. Maybe we'll out try snowboarding next year?
