Weekend Review - Last of January

Had a wonderful weekend up in the mountains!

After swim practice on Friday evening, we drove up into the mountains. A friend's teenager hitched a ride with us which made for more interesting conversation than we normally get with our own kids.

I was up relatively early on Saturday morning to work on a few projects, while the rest of the gang slept in fairly late - 10ish?  Despite our late start, we still got a good few hours of skiing. The snow was great, the mountain not crowded, and everyone was in good moods. The girls headed home a little earlier than the boys (so they could ski the stuff we don't like - double blacks, bumps, etc.). Kate worked on a school project, and I took the dogs for a snow hike. Later the kids and I taught ourselves to play Yahtzee.

Town was crazy busy Saturday because of two festivals - The Fire Arts Festival (Instagram video) and the International Snow Sculpture Championships. We visited both on Saturday evening with a stop at Park and Main for dinner and Mary's Mountain Cookies for dessert to take home. Back at home, we all played Yahtzee while watching the X Games on TV.

Sunday morning was a bit of a repeat only the gang didn't sleep quite as late. We had another great day of skiing. Great conditions, no crowds. We got up high and skied some big bowls. Kids looked great, but my legs are sore!
See Kate on the lift chair behind us?
She missed our chair! Ha!
Home now and getting ready for the week. My bed and book are calling for me already!
