A week ago we returned from a trip to Park City to ski, sled and party for the three day weekend with Scott (B’s brother), Rachael, Duke, and Boss. It’s always a fun time with family.
The plan was to ski on Friday and Saturday (our flight arrived in Utah on Thursday night), sled on Sunday, and go to Salt Lake City on Monday.
Friday morning I headed to the Silver Mountain Sports Club to use their treadmill (had to pay about $20 for a day pass- did that three times.) When I got home, we got geared up and headed to go ski.
Well, when we arrived to Park City Ski Resort on Friday morning, we found out that the ski school for the kids was full for the day (next time we’ll book online beforehand). So we decided that I would stay at the condo with Lou, and Connor, Cash, Duke, Boss and Posey would take a private snowboarding lesson. It worked out great. Lou and I had a very low key day at the condo watching youtube, snacking, walking to 7-11, and drinking hot chocolate. B had fun with the older three and Scott and Rach:
He kept texting me to tell me how great Connor and Posey were doing on their first time snowboarding. I found out the next day that he was right! That’s Connor on the left in the black and Posey on the right in the white coat:
Saturday I was excited to ski (after another treadmill run at Silver Mountain Sports Club.)
Lou was soooooo nervous about ski school so I had to bribe her with a Tiana Barbie, which she has been wanting forever (she’s obsessed with princesses and Barbies.) I had to remind her about 4,828 times dropping her off that if she was brave, she would get her doll. She ended up doing great! Brian went to Walmart that night to get her Tiana Barbie. Hooray for successful bribery!
On Sunday we went sledding at Gorgoza Park. They drag you up the mountain with your tube and you sled down.
Then we all hooked our tubes together to come down:
Then the girls made snow angels, the highlight of their trip.
After sledding, we ate at Fuego.
Lou said, “Mom will you take a picture of me with my Barbies in front of the temple?”
There’s nothing better than family time!! It’s so much fun watching my kids grow up and learn new skills and master them.
We’re headed back to Utah (sans kids this time) on Thursday for Brian to attend a dental convention. Dare I attempt to run outside??? What do you guys think?? If I see even one tiny patch of ice it’s a definite no. I don’t want to end up like this runner:
