We finally went skiing for the first time this year on Friday and Saturday. Friday we went with my family to Wachussett, a mountain in MA. We had lots of fun and then the girls and I drove to Newport, VT to meet up with 2 friends and 3 kids to ski at Jay Peak. Yesterday, we drove 325 miles home. Here is my ode to Jay Peak.
The day dawned bright and sunny,
The tickets were free and cost us no money!
The girls were dressed, one on skis, one on a board,
Down the slopes, they shussed
One small attitude problem, led to taking a walk,
Moral improved after a stern 'talk'.
A wedding appeared, as I was sunning on the deck,
Girls in toeless high heels, in the snow, What the heck?
Weddings follow us, wherever we go,
Who knew we would see one in Vermont on the snow?
Our VT journey continues in tomorrow's muse,
It includes Canada, a party and stunning views.
