Lily Skiing at Sipapu

Randall took a few quick pics of Lily skiing. We can’t wait to go back. We all want to try snowboarding but can’t give up the precious little time we have on the slopes to a new hobby. Someday, for sure. As you can see, she prefers the snowplow form. She can actually snowplow pretty […]
