A ride on the chair::
Against my over protective maternal instincts I let Ava Blu ride the chair lift and ski down the Meadow Trail by herself, with her little ski school friend. The grin on her face was from ear to ear and she was gleaming with excitement and the feeling of independence. It was really great to see. I think I need to continue to let go and let her spread her wings. She really can do some amazing things.
**Now as a disclaimer I should note that I had her in my sights the whole time and Meadow is the greenest of green trails at Alpine.
