Picture #1 is me roughly 12 years old, rocking my downhill suit (which I collected bottles and cans for an entire summer to be able to afford!) I was involved in ski racing for 16 years of my young life and really loved racing!! Picture#2 is my son Darius on his second time out on the slopes!! He is honestly a natural at this sport! I was actually secretly a little sad because I had so much knowledge I was itching to share with my only child about the sport I loved so very much growing up, and he just was naturally good at skiing!! lol so silly I know….don’t get me wrong, I was beaming with pride as I watched him seemingly effortlessly breezing down the runs off the chairlift on a mountain!! Simply amazing!! I am so proud of my little snow bunny!! This was also his choice for his 9th birthday party! 😀 Such a great day!!
