10th Jan 2012 - A rare shot of father and eldest son.
We started the year with a skiing holiday (rest of pics in Holiday section in skiing 2012 gallery). While searching for a skiing holiday earlier last year we discoverd that we could book two chalets in France for the price of a small on in Austria or Switzerland so we contacted friends and family and a group holiday was born. Yolandy was put to good samaritan use when we arrived by towing a stuck van out of the way and hen transporting the occupants luggage to thier chalet. The weather was great the first day but heavy snow and wind meant the lifts were closed for a couple of days and roads were very dangerous.
It was however the first winter holiday we have managed with Cai, on previous attempts either I or Kerstin had had to stay behind to keep Cai company whilst he was sick in hospital. Cai loved the snow and was even throwing snow balls, last year he wouldn't even touch the snow, we even got him on skiis once he saw the fun Luc was having
