Bryden cross country skiing at Rattlesnake Lake
Gavin, ready to sled! And, yes, his cheeks really were that red - it was cold out, and he was very busy, running up and down the sledding hill!
Bryden, zooming down the sledding hill!
...with Gavin not far behind!
Gavin started skiing lessons on the snow this year - he wasn't too sure if he'd like it at the start...
...but by the end of the first lesson, he was having a good time!
And after the lesson was over, it didn't take long in the car for Gavin to zonk out...
...and even Bryden was pooped afterwards!
Bryden and Dario were too excited to walk around waiting for everyone to get ready to go - they had to run in their snowshoes!
Here's Bryden, ready to go with his new ice axe securely lashed to the back of his pack.
Gavin is snowshoeing great! Here he is, following in his daddy's footsteps!
Sorry that it's a bit blurry, but here's Bryden and dad working on ice axe technique for ascending relatively steep snow.
And good ice axe technique for a glissading descent!
We stopped by the Yakima River to throw snowballs in the water, and at each other
Bryden definitely likes to play in the snow!

And the successful climbers, cresting the top of the hill!
