Family Ski Trip

Friday, March 6, 2009

Matthew and I are headed up to Maine tonight!

Every year his family (all 100+ of them) take a ski trip up to Maine. They rent a bus, hire a bus driver, drink cocktails during the drive, stay at the same inn and ski together for an entire weekend. The family ski trip has been going on for the last 50 years or so. I think it's a great family tradition, but originally we hadn't planned on going this year. Until Matthew's mom called and let us know there was an extra room available that had already been paid for and nobody was using. How could we turn down a free room? So last night we decided we' head up to Maine tonight and spend some time with the fam and drive over to New Hampshire on Saturday. And apparently there is a buffet breakfast and dinner every day complete with an ice cream dessert table where one can create their own ice cream sundae. Yum!

Alhthough I was a bit hesitant because of all the driving (yuck), I'm really excited to go. I love our quick getaway weekend trips. What fun adventures we have!

I hope everyone has a relaxing weekend!

  1. So fun! I hope you had a great weekend. Did you do much skiing?

  2. Hi! Unfortunately, we didn't get to ski since we decided to go last minute and didn't have any of our stuff.
