A few weeks ago we took the kids out of school for a few days (shh!!) and headed to Alpbach, Austria, for a quick ski vacation.  It was beautiful!

There wasn't a ton of snow, and upon arriving, we weren't sure whether we'd be able to ski or not.

Better stay on that path!
 But, not to worry.  The top of the mountain was covered:

Roger skied all day, both days.

The kids went to all-day ski school both days we were there.
Kate found a new best friend there.  They called each
other "Briar Rose"-- clearly a match made in heaven.
Will was ready to tackle the mountain.  But the ski instructors said no way since there weren't many beginner slopes because of lack of snow.  But, by the end of the second day, he was ready.

And me?  I skied in the morning (if you could call it that; I'm kind of pathetic on skis.  I need beginner slopes, baby slopes, really), and in the afternoon I read outside by the pool, admiring the view, snuggled in a warm blanket, or I hiked.  Way better than skiing!

While I couldn't get enough of the views, I also loved the architecture.  All these little buildings scattered around:

Check out the rocks on the roof!

Are they holding the roof on??

Can you spot the kitty in this one?
There he is!
Hiking in these mountains was one of my favorite things we've done since moving to Europe.  I can't wait to go back!
