When I tell you we had near blizzard conditions on Saturday, that is no joke! But Yawgoo Valley remained open for skiing and snow tubing, so Go Au Pair Providence braved the elements and the traffic and had a fun time, if not wet by the end of it all! Check us out!
I was happy to bring along a couple of friends to join in the revelry with us, so thanks to Chad and Marissa for braving the winter storm with us, and for the hot cocoa afterwards! We arrived at Yawgoo Valley Ski and Sports Park by 4:30pm and were flying down the hill by a few minutes after five. We did need to view a very short, maybe 2 minutes, safety video to go over the rules and procedures.
We took turns racing, individually, and in-tandem! So much fun! The girls were defeated by the boys twice, but if truth be told, we had the entire race until the last whoop-de-do! Anyway, no hard feelings, but I can’t wait to get together with Carlos and his Host Family again soon. My partners would agree that we probably let you win! 🙂
I hope some of you will be able to join us for our next social/cultural event in Rhode Island. If you are a potential Host Family who hasn’t chosen au pair childcare just yet, perhaps you’d like to attend one of our events and speak to an au pair and his Host Family. We’d be happy to have you join us at our next gathering at Cracker Barrel Restaurant in Coventry, RI on March 15th!
Although traveling to our event did cause one au pair friend to cancel, we did have a very fun time. After we had been there for our hour, we were all done, and starting to get wet. The kids were not quite ready to give up yet, but the adults made the call. Carlos and the Giramma family were meeting friends down at the lodge for dinner, and there was snow-plowing to be done back in the northern part of the state.
