I love ski trips. There is something special about snow, mountains, log houses, cozy family dinners, sauna and skiing, of course! It’s been a while since we went on a ski trip but this year we decided that kids were old enough to try skiing for the first time and off we went. I was like a baby who saw snow for the first time when I saw snow when we got to Branäs! Even though the snow was rather wet and not ideal for skiing we did have a great weather and it was good enough for kids. Turned out that Branäs had many other things to offer especially for kids. Warm drinks in the kid’s area, snow scooter rides, inside play area and kids parties, free kids menus, free train rides to see the area, you name it. Oh, and we even got a chance to pet huskies!
This type of trip is very exhausting for the grown up though. I will only mention putting all the gear on a couple of times a day and running up and down the hills after the little ones and you will understand why we sleeping tight before 9.00 pm. I’m serious! But we are definitely doing this next year if we can. ;D
My little one’s progress in skiing surprised me no less than his big brother. In fact, I believe that considering that he is not even three he was the one who made even bigger progress. His patience depot was not big neither was energy, but he mastered the lift (even though with some help) and skiing on his own. I can’t wait to go there next year to see the progress both of my boys will make then!
I am currently busy with my other project www.natashaolsson.com and thus have much less time to update my “being-a -mom-blog”. Though I ma super happy to share those pictures of my big boy from our recent ski trip, the first ski trip for both kids!
The first time he got on the skis I was sure that Lil’ Fil was gonna say that it’s not comfortable and he wants to go back home. Thus I hurried up to get a picture of him so I would have at least one of him on the skies. Imagine my surprise when I had plenty of time to get another couple of hundred pictures of him because he just love skiing! His first moves on his own nearly made me cry. He mastered not only skiing, but the lifts and turns and he loved every minute of it. ♥ my big boy!
