On Tuesday, 19 January we loaded a bus and headed for the slopes! We went to Hyundai Sungwoo Resort. This was our first ski trip here in Korea and it was the very first ski trip for Boy 2 and Girl (Boy 1 & 3 did not join us).
Anytime we take a bus trip here in Korea, we ALWAYS stop at a rest stop. This guy was out singing in the freezing cold (I'm talking 14 degrees F) so a few of the girls and I decided to get on stage with him and have our picture made. It wasn't until we got back on the bus that we found out he was singing to raise money for an orphanage. I totally would have given him money had I only known.

After about an hour and a half of instructions, Girl was ready for a green!
Here we are at the top of the hill getting ready to ski down together for the first time!
Girl LOVED skiing!
Boy 2 didn't find it as easy to ski as his big sister did. He did awesome, but never made it to the top of the mountain. After a couple of hours of trying to teach him, his Mommy needed a cocktail. We tried ski school, but the language barrier was too much for him.

I thought this was funny, these were everywhere, they are PSP's ~ you stick your hands through the holes in the plastic to play.
And if the PSP stations aren't enough, well, just venture over in front of one of these big screen TV's, take a seat and play XBox.
The bus ride home, Julie and Don couldn't hang with us....
Me with my handsome husband...the sad thing about this day, I didn't get to ski with him even one time.
Proud Army wife and mother to 4 wonderful children. I love to cook, travel, work out and scrapbook life’s adventures when I find the time. We just got orders & are heading back to the states in March 2010. I'm bummed that our time has been cut short, but proud of Hubby for the reason why.
