Kiddie Canyoneering

Spring is the perfect time for a trip down south. Kids warming up on practice rock.

Andi showing Alemayehu how to "suck it in". I think she might have been talking to me as my harness didn't quite fit as well as it did when I was 20...

"Training Day". Jer mastering the "frog jump" technique.

Desert Trolls

Another Day in Paradise

Stemming 101

The canyons were meant for the small fry, they easily fit between the walls while the old folks scraped along

Alemayehu showing off the end result of a day in the canyon, a fate others also suffered

Hang Time

Getting Silly

Over the Abyss

Mmm, salami and pirate booty sandwich

Theo keeping it cool back at camp

Louie getting a little love, or perhaps just stealing a chip..

Twin Tips

Twin Tips? OK I guess so. Why Not? Coach says he's ready...skiing backwards, skiing bumps and powder. Yep, he will probably be giving me lessons by next year!  

And well, we do live in Utah, where we aren't all that weird. In fact, the second hand stores are full of gear for little rippers. All they say to you is, "5 Huh? Got a lit'l ripper do ya?" Hard not to hide your proud mama smile. 

Yes, I did get in trouble for encouraging the backwards skiing...

And don't forget Jeremie! First year and he is king of the power wedgie. Always stopping to remind myself it has only been one much he has learned. Amazing how resilient our little JerBear is!!
