For the record, I have no idea exactly why the kids wanted umbrellas. They saw them in the closet as we were fishing out our ski boots and... the rest is history. Apparantly.
|O was entranced|
|N beginning to understand that carrying an umbrella while skiing isn't so easy.|
I had to admit it was actually kinda nice having umbrellas.
The next day O got his November ski in. At first, he was more interested in the poles - and why not?
My turn: 5.6 miles on bike and open space trails. Started at 25˚F with excellent glide and a beautiful day. By mile 2.8 the temperature was rising and the skis were repeatedly caking with ice. Oh well.
