Lunch at Snowbasin

Lesa and I went to Snowbasin for lunch on Saturday.  We went to the lodge and bought a foot traffic ticket to be able to ride the gondola up to the Needles Lodge.

Here we are gaining 2,300 feet in a gondola to the Needles Lodge at 8,700 feet.

It felt warm up in the sun.  It was nice to get out of the smog down below.

This is the view at the top of the gondola line.
Inside is was warm and crowded.  You get your food cafeteria style and it was over priced, but that is to be expected.  We both went for the cheese burger and found the only empty table.  After a few minutes a table by one of the windows became clear so we moved over to that one.
It was quite crowded as you can see from this picture just outside of the doors at the top of the ski slope.

Here is the view from the outdoor eating area at the lodge.  
 We were amazed at how many really young children we saw skiing by us.  There were a couple Bradley's size.  

Time to head back down.

On the way back down the mountain.

Lesa wasn't happy about it but I got a picture of us while going down!  

It was a fun new place to go.  We ended by stopping at Vintage Cupcakes on 24th street before heading home.

December Recap

We spent the day at the Discovery Gateway and Bradley tried out his skills at flying.  After a quick flight around the Salt Valley he touched back down like a pro and we continued our explorations.

I had to go up to Alta for work and they have received a ton of snow as you can see from the car in this parking lot!

We went to the Christmas Carol at the Terrace Plaza Playhouse.  Bradley got a chance to meet Santa after and was sure to let him know that he wanted Mater and Mcqueen for Christmas.  He talked with Santa but wouldn't look at him directly.

OK, so this one wasn't taken in December but I think it is too cute to leave out.  Our usual battle with the leaves was interrupted by the two little guys who kept crawling on the pile.

Daniel rocking out in his room.

Another picture from Bradley's birthday party.

For some reason Bradley keeps wanting to fall asleep on the floor instead of his bed.  It took us a while but we figured out that he didn't like the sheets we put on his bed.

Lesa decided to re-paint the kitchen.

Here you can see the old blue colors with the new brown/gray as Lesa did the edges first.

Here is Bradley and Daniel exploring a cave on Christmas Eve.  I used the flash so it looks pretty bright but the only light is Bradley's head lamp.  Don't worry he was hooked into the rope with a carabiner locked onto his belt loop.

Here are the boys checking out what Santa brought them Christmas morning.  Dave, Kim and Kyle came over and it was fun to have them around Christmas morning.

2010 went so fast we can hardly believe it is over.  It is true that time goes faster each and every year.  If we blink to slowly 2011 will be over next!
