Movies, football and skiing

We had another busy weekend - but we had a blast!

Friday evening began with going out to dinner with our good friend Matt followed by our yearly pilgrimage to see the latest Warren Miller movie. For those who don’t know Warren Miller is a guy who has made many, many ski films and each year a new one is released which, to us, signifies the beginning of ski season and gets us all revved up to go skiing! This year’s movie was pretty good and featured four Colorado ski towns. It sure put me in the mood for skiing.

Saturday we headed down to watch the CSU vs. Air Force football game with Trisha, Chris, Sam and other friends from CSU. The coolest thing of the evening was watching the fighter jest (maybe F-16s?) fly 200 feet above us and having the sound of the flyby come three seconds after the plane passed us by. It was so loud that it set off a lot of the car alarms in the parking lot! So cool! My Rammies lost the game but we still had a great time!

Sunday morning we woke up early and headed out to Arapahoe Basin for our first ski trip of the season. At the top of the first run my legs were still adjusting and remembering how to ski but by the end of the day (and after some hard cider) I was feeling great and skiing all of the way down the mountain without stopping. A little more training at the gym and I might be able to keep up with Dave this season… or maybe not…

It was a great weekend. Now I just have to gear up for food drives the next two Saturdays – UGH!
