Are you having the Winter blues? The cold weather getting you down? Have you been hibernating inside your warm cozy house? That sounds just like me but my children want out and they want to do something fun even if it is in the cold brr…. So we all sat down and have decided to go on a family ski vacation together. We made sure to find one that was family friendly and had a big warm fireplace so I could sip my hot chocolate.
