We just got back from spending a great week at Whistler, which is about 1.5 hours north of Vancouver, BC. Eamon was really looking forward to going to Canada, and had a blast playing with our friends Brian and Anne's twin boys, Lucas and Finn. He loves to get silly with the twins and make a ton of noise. Also, as you can see in the picture below, he loves playing the "FREEZE!!" game.

Eamon was super excited to go to ski school. We signed him up for 3 full days. When he started he was solidly level 1, which means that he was still learning how to stop and turn. But by the end of the 3rd day, he was an official shredder. He can turn and stop really well, and loves going fast. We're still learning to cope with that last one :)

We also had a lot of fun cross-country skiing together. Whistler has lots of nice cross-country trails for all skill levels, and Mommy discovered a new snow sport that she LOVES. We spent thursday afternoon skiing around the lake together. We all rented skis so that we could enjoy the day together. It was the first time on cross country skis for both Eamon and Mommy, but by the end of the day they were both complete converts. Mommy went back for more on Friday, when Eamon and Daddy were downhill skiing together.
The trails were really pretty. On the green trails there are a few hills, but nothing too steep so they were a great place to learn.
After not very long though, they were both sliding and skiing like pros.
After a great 6 days up on the mountain, we headed home on saturday. It was a great vacation, but its nice to be home :)
