The Bunny Hill's Lindsey Vonn

Once upon a time, there was a family who loved to ski.

And when they had a little girl who came sportin' a little something extra, they worried that she wouldn't be able to share the family's love for the snowy slopes.

But one day, there was a tiny pair of skis
 and a girl wearing a tiny pair of boots
 and a ski instructor who bore the name "Daddy".
 Being  more than thrilled to give this whole "skiing thing" a try
the little girl placed herself in her Daddy's capable hands.
 She stood all on her own and was happy
 (as long as Daddy kept her moving)
 on those magical things called skis.
 Being a natural
 (of course)
 the little girl perused the ski hill and imagined herself at the top one day (soon).
 But for today?
she was quite happy to take her little determined face to the bottom of the hill and practice using those legs like a true Vermonter
 "we're going to need to do this again" she said earnestly
 to Daddy and Mommy.
 Wrapping up the day with a giant bouncy castle,
 a bad case of hat hair,
 and a Signing Time DVD

The whole family agreed, "We should do this again....soon."

(Except for Carter who was at Gwampa and Gwandma's house screaming loudly protesting that he was not part of the day's expedition)
