Every year for the last 56 years my husband's family has been packing up the car and going to northern Michigan for a ski weekend! What started with my mother and father in law and 6 kids has grown to spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren. As we have gotten older we have upgraded our requirements! When our kids were babies we would take over a corner of the day lodge and spread out toys, blankets and babies and take turns baby sitting! Now we require a condo with kitchen!!! But fun is always an ingredient! And I always get a thrill when my husband suits up to ski a NASTAR race!
