I’ll admit, all this snow and blue hues in the air scared me a little.
I’m too used to the desert by now.
But we were welcomed warmly in all that snow by my mother who had just left us the day before.
We had a few errands to run downtown (one quite important one I’ll get to next week), and I continued on my efforts to prove that Hires has the best burger of all time and in all the world:
I think most were convinced..or at least that they had the best peppermint milkshake 🙂
Dave took the girls on a ski date. These are the pictures they sent:
I stayed in town since I had a special little date with my high school girlfriends:
How I love these girls of mine who have been with me through thick and thin in life.
(and yes, our shoes are tell-tale signs of where we live…Can’t wait to see you guys in February here…don’t bring your boots! 🙂 It was so good to sit for a couple hours and get at least a little bit caught up.
My parents got us into a pretty cool series that we all got hooked on. This is how we watched:
The next day I braved the cold with these guys while Lucy stayed for a “date” with my parents.
I have a hard time not skiing with my big camera strapped around my neck. I need to just go on a ski photography trip some day. It’s just so gorgeous up there!
Loved being with these guys and I was pretty elated we could hit the black diamonds all together.
…as long as they took it slow to wait for their mother…
Our hand warmers turned our hands completely black but it was so worth it!
That drive down the canyon was so incredible.
I loved that these girls kept pointing it out even more than I did.
We took approximately 83 pictures but here’s a sampling.
Pictures can never do things enough justice in my opinion.
We played so many card games we just couldn’t stop.
And Lucy was in all her glory since she kept winning, as usual.
We went sledding:
(pictures from that back HERE.)
And most importantly we got to meet our new baby cousin: baby Faith:
(My favorite thing ever right up there…)
We had a great dinner together that my mom whipped up…
…and then bid sad goodbyes to all those good people.
