Winter Is For...

The Ski Trip!

Last week marked what has become the annual ski adventure. We started up to Lutsen Sunday afternoon...
...We made a bowling stop in Duluth. Always a good way to start off a vacation. :)

The gracious chaperones :)

Just look at that form...

Upon arriving at Subway for dinner, Ari discovered she had 'stolen' her bowling shoes :D

We had lovely accommodations at Lutsen Resort - the girls and guys each had a two-story town house with two bedrooms, a loft, kitchen, and living room. 

Playing Mille Bornes!

We hit the slopes Monday morning. Felt so good to be back on skis!

The view from the top of Moose Mountain is gorgeous.

God blessed us with incredible weather during our trip. Sunny and low 30s in January? We'll take it!

Almost the whole crew...

...and the whole ski crew!

Our town house, or "Sea Villa" as it's called, was right on the lake. It was gorgeous to watch the sun set over the water, and fall asleep to the sound of waves hitting the rocks at night. 

Ari decided I should have a messy bun ;)

 In the evenings, we invaded the main lodge to play games

Funny flashback to last year's Ski Trip Fishbowl...


The guys were having quite the time shuffling their feet and touching the light to see the spark. Homeschoolers. ;)

Ari, deciding that, despite his appearance, the bear is her friend

Love these girls!

The annual trip to Sven and Ole's for pizza

S'mores on the beach!

The star-studded sky was breathtaking 

I got up early enough one morning to take in the sun rise. Such beauty God flings in the sky! 

Well, that's a wrap on ski trip 2013. I'm already looking forward to next year's adventure!
