snow

Leaving out a big chunk of time for the moment so I can post these from the snow.
I do want to say thanks to Sweet Chilly Philly and Sharon for tagging me though, very late, sorry girls! Maybe next time I'll actually get time to do it.

Poor child with goggles that were too big, not that he kept them on for long anyway.

Snowball! I should have taken a photo of Joel's nose after I hit him with one but I felt so bad already that I didn't, made him bleed!

Jordy and Uncle Benny making snow angels. "Welcome to my office" Ben said when we arrived, very nice office indeed Ben!

Photobucket

He doesn't have the greatest stamina Jordy, so it was either carry him or drag him up, hard work, lucky we had Ben to share the fun of that!

And a snowboard ride too!

Pom Pom! (Jordy named her that rather than grandma for those going huh?!)

Such amazing blue sky and sunshine! I didn't even feel cold and those that know me, know I'm always cold!

I'd left my camera in the car while we sorted out what we were doing, then walked back to get it which was a fair hike to go up the chairlift. While I was getting it, I must have left my gloves behind, which was a bit poor because it was cold without them but I thought nevermind, at least I have the camera. Got to the top and it was soo beautiful, pulled the camera out, um, no battery! Had taken it out to charge and forgotten to put it back in! Very annoyed is an understatement! I got only a couple of shots off my p&s (above) that was in my pocket before it went flat on me too!

Joel was calling Jordy The Cosmonaut with his suit and new goggles! The Cosmonaut didn't think it was that funny!

The Cosmonaut did like skiing though! We held his hands amd he said "Let me go, I know how to do it"!

Cute new boots that don't make blisters!

Waiting for the Ski Tube, a train that goes from the bottom, right up the mountain through a tunnel to Perisher Blue and then to Blue Cow. Trains are one of Jordy's favourite things, a train at the snow, how good is that!

And the rest of us thought these mini donuts from a shop at the station were pretty good!

I went without one glove for a bit so I could feel the shutter button on the camera properly, until I found these! Much better!

The navman very nearly got sent out the window on the way there, she didn't like us going the way we did! We had to mute her, there are only so many times you can listen to "Perform a U-Turn where possible"! She is normally very good and helpful but not up mountains apparantly! She didn't mind when we came home the same way though thank goodness!

And if you read this Ben, Jordy wants to say Hi to Lilly!
