Family days.....

The real reason we all headed to Angel Fire, NM last weekend was

not just to meet my new nephew....

but was to celebrate my parents 40th anniversary.

Forty years together.

While i was there i found some photos of my mom...

shortly after she married my dad.

I'm happy to say that Lola now has photos

of someone she loves ...

with the same hair style.

We celebrated their anniversary as a family...

and it was a fabulous weekend.




We spent three full days skiing.

alright....

not necessarily moi...

because i had to have my baby fix remember.

All three of the kids are now officially skiers.

Mason had a one day lesson since he

has skied before.
{fyi: i looked up the word skied..and i did spell it right...
it just doesn't look right....
for all of you grammar fanatics}

Fin and Lola had never been on ski's...

so they had 2 days of lessons.


Bryan and Mason skied together the second day..

all day...

while the other two had their second day of lessons.

Then on Sunday....

we all went up as a family.

amazing.

fun.

To be able to ski as a family...

and there was no complaining at all.

errrr..

alright...

there might have been a teeeny...tinnny bit of complaining.

It wasn't from me though.

We still had fun though.




We are very fortunate to have family that lives

in areas that make family vacations fun.
oh....
and i've been having a blast answering all your questions.
you can still ask....{here}

p.s. i somehow forgot to announce

the winner of my little {2 year old}

giveaway.

What a fabulous weekend - great to celebrate family. Isn't NM just magical - I live in Albuquerque, NM now originally from Chicago. The mountains are so grounding.

LOVE the photos of your MOM!! I see you in her!! And did you take the current photos of them because they look like a magazine!

christy said...

I heart NM! Ever since visiting NM there a few years ago I have always said that if I ever left AZ, it would be for NM. Such a beautiful state!

Your parents look like something from the Sundance catalog! Your mom's post wedding photo looks like a model!

Annie @ The House That Jade Built said...

What a fun trip & your mama is a gorgeous lady!

I desperately want to ski. The one time I went - I couldn't control my speed & you betcha - I skied into a tree - I was like a speeding bullet down the hill - not even a mountain, but a hill - awful!

Beth said...

that looks like alot of fun! and your mom is gorgeous in those photos! I love old pictures!

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

40 years is a milestone in this day & age. Not many marriages make it that far. Congrats to your parents. My parents have been married over 50 years.

Lucky you to have such a fun family vacation. I have never been skiing in my life. But since I am over 50 I highly doubt that I ever will.

Great photos of your Mom Kasey, she looks beautiful - and those photos are so stylish, they don't date at all do they.

Love the skiing shots, your children are clearly naturals!!

Sounds like a wonderful time!

paula said...

oh what fun! 40 years, now that's fabulous.

paula said...

ha! so missed that! I got so caught up in the skiing story.

Gail said...

Your Mother was quite the model when she was younger...and still beautiful! I'm glad y'all had such a splendid time skiing. I've only gone once and never looked back. Some of us got it, some of us don't! Or maybe it was the fact that I had never had lessons and my Dad stuck me on blue & black slopes the first day. Hmmm...

Bonnie said...

Adore your mom's vintage photos. I love looking through my parent's old ones. I'm like really? You guys were young once?!?! :)

Glad your vacation was a happy one!

Tracey said...

Wow those are such great pics of your mom!!! She was so stylish!!!

Glad you had such a good time...probably a good thing you don't really ski...skiing while taking pics would be awfully hard!

When's your dad gonna let you have that truck??!!

:) T

Ashley B. said...

So reading this post made me totally homesick!!! (I'm from Angel Fire and now reside in Tucson, AZ.) I want to go home SOOOO badly now! It looks like you guys had a blast on the slopes though!

Martha said...

Those pics of your mom are beautiful...but then again I should have guessed considering you and Lola are too:)

Anyway...love the question and answer thing...yes...I forgot to sign my name which one I did...which really wasn't a question...since more or less a comment...I was for sure certain you were writing a book:) All in due time...I guess that offer will come soon for you...right?

So glad you had a great time

When my youngest had his first day of lessons, at the end he came skiing up to me, snowplowed to a stop, and said, "I love skiing, Mom. It's falling down I don't like." Amen!

The Flying Bee said...

Is it me, or do you parents look like movie stars? Especially cruising around in that truck! I say get the keys and run for it, Kasey! It suits you perfectly.
