This past weekend we went on our first adventure with Uliana. Our friend, Dylan, organized a ski weekend at Mount Cain. Mount Cain is a small, community-run ski hill, famous for it's snow. And we certainly weren't disappointed on that front! After a 45-minute drive up a logging road we found ourselves at the foot of a t-bar lift and surrounded by cabins.
The next day Brad got to ski on at least 2 feet of fresh powder. And here's the picture to prove it, as that is overnight accumulation of snow on our co-op car.
We met up with my friend (and former undergrad roommate), Tara. She has two kids that are both just a bit older than my children. And she is also a talented photographer, so in a few weeks time I should be able to post some REALLY good family photos.
We also dropped into Morningstar Farm on the way home for a nice farm tour. Farms were very much a part of our life in Ireland... but in the past year Nikolai has transformed into a real city slicker. He was quite afraid of the friendly horse, and only consented to pet the rabbits.
However I do need to send out a kudos to Nancy, who stayed with me in the lodge when Brad went snowboarding. Now for some more pictures of snow.
