Look Jim. The snow is nice.
We don't need ski lessons. Lets get that ski bum over there to teach us!
Lets go over to that chair lift.
Here we go!
We are up so high! Look at the tiny people!
How do you get off this thing?
I'll go right, you go left.
Look, Jim, look! See Pat and Bob?
Lets ski down the hill.
Look, Jim, look! See the tree?
Isn't it big? What a big tree!
How do I stop?
Look, look, look!
See Eleanor up in the tree?
See, see, see?
Help, Jim, help! Get me out of this tree!
Lets walk down the hill.
Here comes Lori!
Here comes Denise!
Here comes Donna and Dianne!
See the lodge? See the fire?
Let's warm our hands and drink hot chocolate!
Jim and Eleanor had fun that week.
Swimming, sleeping, hot-tubbing, eating.
But NO skiing!
no, no, no!
