Greer 2011 - Part 2....Sunrise

For the past 3 years we have gone to Greer from Saturday to Saturday, which is all well and good, it just makes it impossible for us to enjoy a fun and beautiful little thing known as Sunrise ski resort (they foolishly are ONLY open on Sat. and Sun. afternoons).  We love to ride the lift to the top and take in the ridiculous beauty of the landscape.  Plus, the ride up and back is just so beautiful, and peaceful and serene and fun.  And.....we always get rained on.  Oh wait, that is NOT my favorite part of it.

Anywho, this year we got to go up on Friday, therefore making a trip to Sunrise possible.  It did NOT disappoint.  Max and Maggie loved "the swing ride" and we enjoyed it too.


Max LOVED the "ride".  Can't you just tell by that little face?

Heading up the slope.  It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get up.

From the top.
It was about 50 degrees up there.
In ARIZONA, in AUGUST!
Le Sigh!

Heading down.

She was enjoying it, I promise.  Though in this pic she may look a little like a rabid animal...I'm not sure. hahaha


Dana, Hayden and Adam decided to hike down.
Silly mistake, as the heavens opened and poured forth upon them.  Dana may have looked like she stepped out of the shower when all was said and done.  However, Adam was able to take some REALLY cool shots of us in the lift, from down below.

Harrison and Bryson

Oh hey, there we are.  Look at Maggies face, it cracks me up.  Acting like she was scared or something.

I end with this cute pic of my parents, cause it cracks me up.  My Moms comment on this one was..."there is me and Brooklyn and some random Frenchman I picked up." hehehehe  Oh Mom, you slay me.  But really, my Dad is a hoot with his beret and his ginormous blu blocker sunglasses!  LOVE him!

All in all it was a fabulous afternoon, so worth the rain.  It makes me so happy to see the beauty that Arizona has to offer.  Oh, and plus, my family is fun too!

Swing rides and rain drops,

Having a legit Frenchman in my family, I can tell you with complete certainty, that yes. They do wear berets. Even when they're in the States.
Hilarious, your dad.
