The Gift of Skiing

This is what our soon-to-be 20-year-old wanted for her birthday - to go skiing.

So being the dutiful mom who grew up in Colorado and knows what's what about skiing, I gladly took her for a day on the slopes.

It was the perfect day.

We went to Shawnee Peak near Bridgton. The temperature was in the teens, there was no wind, and the whole place was miraculously empty. Not once did we wait in line for a lift and we usually had the slopes to ourselves. Even the eating area, which is usually packed, wasn't even half filled at noon.

Happy Birthday to my sweet girl!
