I know many of you are ready for this winter to be over. However, I am not quite ready for the fun to end.
This has been one of the most active and enjoyable winters I have had in several years. Part of it has to do with the fact that my sons are now 8 and 9 years old, but part of it also has to do with living here. My family and I have gone downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing as many weekends as possible for the last 4 months (when we weren't traveling for hockey). I feel so lucky to have two ski areas, groomed Nordic trails, and unlimited snowshoeing opportunities so close to home.
The other day we received an invitation in the mail for Sunlight Sports' customer appreciation party with a gift certificate and personal note from owners Wes and Melissa Allen thanking us supporting their local business. You know winter has been too much fun when you get stuff in the mail like that!
