Skiing at Blue Knob

From Instagram: Sixteen years ago, Sean and I came to Blue Knob for a day of skiing and I sat down on the first green trail and refused to go any further until he piggybacked me all the way down {dare devil I am not, and it was only my third or fourth time skiing}. This week our girls all tackled a black diamond trail. Clearly they take after their father!

This week our family headed up to Blue Knob in Claysburg, PA for a few days of skiing. The boys and I hung out in our pajamas in the ski house we rented while Sean and the girls skied, and I had a lot of fun preparing all of our meals and just enjoying the break from our regular routine.

Unfortunately, the cold virus that Peyton and Jackson had before we left swept its way through our family while we were there, so we came back sick and exhausted. But it still beats the time we ended up with the stomach flu in a hotel, and we were able to push through it!

What I’m reading: I’m still on the same books that I started in January, but I also started the audiobook version of Mindy Kaling’s Why Not Me?

What I cooked10-minute lasagna, dairy-free waffles, paleo “porridge”
