My niece Kenna, and my nephews Timmy and Robby
February 24, 2010
Here is the second set of our photos from last week’s family vacation! After a day in the Colorado Springs area, my family spent four days in Breckenridge. The nine of us rented a huge condo right across the street from a ski lift. We spent our days playing in the snow, and the evenings playing Wii with the kids. The highlight of the week was teaching the kids to ski. I guess technically we didn’t really “teach” them — we just stood them up at the top of a green slope, and let go. It was beyond adorable to see them on skis, especially my two-year-old nephew, Timmy.
Here are several photos of the adorable mini-skiers! All pictures are by me, my mom, and my sister-in-law, Molly.

My dad helping Timmy. Look how little he is! He looked like R2D2 on skis — he was all helmet.
Paul had to help Robby down the final stretch of the slope.
Here’s a great shot of all of us arriving at the bottom of the hill. I walked down the slope with Timmy, who loved the first half of the hill, and then got too tired to go further. I ended up carrying him down the second half of Silverthorne. I was exhausted by this point!
During the afternoons, Mike and I showed Paul and Molly around the mountain.

The kids LOVED the lifts! I swear they enjoyed the lifts more than the actual skiing.

At the top of the hill, each of us paired off with a child, and Molly took pictures.
Mike skied with Robby until he was too tired to move.
