Sam and Lizzy are in downhill racing this year. Sunday was their first race.
Here comes Sam. My first thought when I realized it was him was, ‘for the love of God, do your coat up!’ Then I snapped out of it and started taking photos.
As you can see, he’s enjoying the run. He was also taking in the crowd, he managed to holler out a HUGE, “HI MOM, HI DAD” as he whizzed by, which earned him a round of applause, cowbells (yep, they ring cowbells), and laughter.
He liked those cowbells! I’ll have to have a little chat with him about wind resistance –> DO UP YOUR COAT!
Go Sam Go!
Here comes my girl. Unlike her brother she is focused on the race, not the crowd. She skied really well.
Will ya look at that sky? It was a glorious day with temps around 5c (40+f), not a cloud in the sky. It was seriously GOOD for my cabin-fevered soul.
Go Lizzy Go!
Mr. MK is in charge of skiing, therefore, I didn’t even get out of bed when they left the house at 6:30 a.m. If I had aroused, I would have insisted she braid her hair. The rat’s nest … AHHH!
Then again, I was in charge of getting this wild child ready at noon, and she doesn’t look much better!
Not to be outdone Georgia managed to get in a little downhill speed herself.
It was a great day, in a fabulous city! Winter really does have it’s ups!
How was your weekend?
