It was a beautiful day, so even though it was getting to the end of the afternoon by the time we got home from karate and horseback riding, I decided it was high time we took advantage of the snow and went skiing!
It took longer than hoped to gather skis and distribute ski boots (aka "No those were your boots LAST year. Now they belong to younger sibling") but finally we were off and just getting to the entrance when we discovered Daddy had left the keys to the ski rack at home. By the time we had retrieved keys and gotten back to the trail it was very definitely sunset and light was fading fast. We did not go far, having not brought headlamps with us but it was enough.
