Ten on Ten: Gear Day

I missed fall in the mountains this year because I've been traveling for most of the past six weeks.  I was lucky that one of those trips was both fun and soul food (more on that soon).  The group of lovely ladies I gathered with by the sea suggested we start a new Ten on Ten project, a perfect way to bring me back into this space that I've missed so much.

Winter has made its first overtures in the high country since I was last here. 

Winterizing our family apparently involves a frenzy of gear acquisition, starting with post-season mountain bike shopping to replace Will's bike that was stolen earlier this year.  (The gambit here is that if you're willing to buy a new bike and let it collect dust for six months before you can use it, you deserve 30 percent off.)

We're all itching to hit the slopes, and the snow has already started falling.  With Ezra growing like a weed, season ski rentals are the only rational approach to gear.  The minute we walked into the ski shop Ezra and I headed for the rental racks.

Ezra was so happy he refused to take his ski boots off for the rest of the day.

On the way home Will couldn't resist riding his new bike for the last five miles, even though it's straight uphill.

And ever his father's son, Ezra insisted on a short hike in his ski boots.

Welcome winter.  We're ready to play.

For more 10 on 10 goodness, head to see what Tara Romasanta has in store.

So happy for a Bird post! Doesn't disappoint -- great story of a day...and a family's life and place...it could be guessed the my faves are Ez thrilled with his new boots and Will thrilled with his new bike.
Thank you for this look into the start of Winter for you guys. I can just about taste that sky.

Oh you have got me itching too for some skiing. Boy does that E look just like his momma. I loved the peek into bird's day.

We hope so.

Corinna - I was just thinking of you the other day, missing your words and images. And here you popped up again in my reader :) Glad to have you back in this space, sharing your wide-mountain spaces.

Lovely lovely lovely images here. This got us talking about a family vacation to Colorado! Now, if you figure out how to slow down time and stop Ezra from sprouting up so fast, please share. It truly goes by too fast.
