Ski Trip Without Mom!

The date had arrived, it was time to go to Red River, however I got attacked with stomach bug. Perfect timing... Not!

Friday morning Kevin took the kids to school, Tyler had arrived from OKC, and Chris was at Tech finishing his classes and getting assignments for M and T. Amelia and AJ would be picked up right after lunch. The car was being loaded. However, I was in bed, I was NOT packing, I was NOT going to make the trip. Everyone was disappointed.
I laid in bed and told them where the snacks where, where the drinks were located in the garage and where the kids had left their suit cases. I made sure they got my cameras, batteries, chargers, made sure they didn't forget anything critically important, and they managed to get out of town by 2pm! I was on my own, except for the cats!

This is the only car pic, technically on the drive home! Oh well!

Through the miracle of texting I stayed in touch while they drove for a little while, but mostly I slept. The family arrived in Red River about 10:30 in the evening. Every chance I got I reminded them to take pictures! I got about 100! Kev did video while skiing, but I can't get video on the blog :-(

The cabin, Alpine Lodge, Red River

The front porch, HAD, I been there I would have been curled up reading here!

I think Amelia did pretty well getting pictures of the cabin for me! We stayed in this same cabin 3 years ago!

They had a great time, no broken bones, or sprained knees! Thank the Lord! That is why I don't ski.

Tomorrow, Mt pictures! I know you are anxiously awaiting!! Don't hold your breath!
