Cross Country Fun!

Bodhi with a little kick and glide
I just wanted to share a couple of smiles, I'm so lucky to have two amazing kids. Ethan and Bodhi and I went out cross country skiing the other day at the Nordic Center in Aspen. For $9 we rented a full package of skis, boots and poles, and we skied over a mile and a half!

It was a beautiful, sunny day, we sat and had a snack about half way around, and Ethan was sprinting along, showing us the technique that he had learned in AVSC, and Bodhi, his first time on cross country gear, got the hang of it really quick!

I think its going to be great for his Alpine skiing, as he has to actively stay forward, since the boots aren't rigid enough to hold him up if he leans back. He had a great attitude, got himself up every time he fell, and even got a little kick-and-glide by the last 1/2 mile!

The awesome Nordic Center staff helps Ethan and Bodhi get into their gear
What a great way to spend the afternoon!
