Hi, my name is Alex Shorter and my family and I live in Wenatchee, Washington. I was inspired by other Wenatchee moms to start a blog about my family and work. So here I go!
Here’s a little about my family and me.
My husband, Ryan, and I were blessed on August 14th, 2011 with the birth of our son, Carl! He is a smiling little guy and just loves life. His first birthday is coming right up and I can’t believe it! They really do grow up too fast. Ryan and I are enjoying our new role of being parents.
Carl keeps us very busy and his favorite hobby right now is rounding up all the different kinds of paper in the house. He feels strongly that it must be shredded and stuffed in his mouth!
Ryan is the Program Director & Head Coach of the Mission Ridge Ski Team and I am in charge of running the 12 & younger programs within MRST www.mrst.us. You may have seen my athletes skiing around at the Ridge, (they wear the little green coats) and are so cute!
As a husband and wife team, Ryan and I run summer and fall ski racing camps out of Mt. Hood, Oregon and Vail, Colorado. Our business is called PV Alpine www.pvalpine.com and we work with kids from 8 years old to master’s racers and everyone in between. We give 100 percent, providing each athlete with a great camp experience while helping them improve their skiing in a focused, positive environment. I run all the administration, cook three meals a day for both athletes and coaches and am the “house mom.” Ryan is the Head Coach/ Program director and manages all the hill work, among so many other things!
I also keep busy in the off season running my photography business Alexandra Otto Photography www.alexottophoto.com and work with families, seniors and brides!
My goal is to blog once a month this year, and I’m hopeful that you will share your own stories of motherhood and life in general with me!
Here we go!
