Grandparent's Visit

Grandma and Grandpa(or Memah and Pepah as Joey says) came for a visit over the holiday weekend. We always have a great "opening night" with lots of wine and cards. Deb and I always overdo it on opening night and pay for it the next day(the Darn Fur Trapper!). The weather took a turn for the worst and the snow began to fall. Even still, we took Emmett for his first ski lesson at Sleeping Giant. The snow fell like crazy and Emmett was the only one outside. Jolene, Deb, Mark, Luke and I sat in the lodge looking out the window and taking pics and videos. He absolutely loved skiing and can't wait to go back for lesson #2. His instructor's name was Lee and was a high school boy that is on the ski team. Emmett was already talking about how HE was going to be just like Lee and race on skis. Great. Better start saving now...for equiptment and the doctor bills. We packed up the car and headed for home. We then settled in for a nice dinner and relaxed the rest of the weekend away.
