We are now officially a family of skiers!

Wade did great at Copper Mountain. We decided to do a quick three day trip after finding some good airfare. He took a full day lesson (and had one MLK Monday at Appalachian a few weeks earlier). The second day he was ready to go out with Mom and Dad! After a few times on the magic carpet we gave the small chair lift a try.

He didn't even want to stop for lunch. Any of you that know Wade, know food is a huge priority for him....so it shows how much fun he was having. When we did stop I let him have the biggest rice krispy treat I have ever seen.

I think Mike had just as much fun watching him progress as he did learning. It won't be long before Mommy gets left in their dust.

So we are now officially a family of skiers, there will be more trips in our future. Copper Mt was laid out great for families. Kids ski free, and even had free kids camp at night so we could celebrate an early Valentine's dinner.

Chinese New Year 2017

Just look at how these guys have grown. Sam suggested we get the boys photo made for Chinese New Year so in 2014 we got this one in their silks.

Wade was scared of the studio and his Finn McMissile helped calm him down

Then we met Jonah next year and there were three!

2016 was the year of the Monkey...this one will probably always be my favorite

And now 2017, the year of the Rooster. Jonah's family is working to bring home a little brother so by next year there will be four!

I am glad Wade has these guys in his life. It could mean a lot to him someday to know others from the same birth country and going through the same treatments for cleft repairs as he will.
