Snow and the Flying Tomato

Friday David and I decided that we were tired of being in the valley and wanted to do something. We hooked up the camper (yes, we realize it is winter), dropped Lyra and Pyper off at Grandma and Grandpa Gordon's, and headed out to see the... ...at the Park City Mountain Resort. This was the last stop on the tour, and the Olympic team was announced Saturday.

On Friday we bundled up and headed up to the resort.






It was cold and snowy, but we were all pretty excited to be there. The half pipe was HUGE!! It looks big on TV, but it is even bigger in person! We saw some of this...

...by a bunch of different people. It was amazing to see how much air they caught!

And then came...


...HIM! The Flying Tomato, Strawberry Candy, my kids' HERO....Shawn White.

He had an amazing ride! Hannah and Seth were so excited to see him board. Oh yeah, and they got to meet him....they were walking about 5 feet off the ground on the way to the camper!

Saturday, David and the kids went boarding. Evona and I stayed in the toasty warm camper an whipped up a mean spaghetti dinner for them. After dinner, we went to the second day of the Grand Prix. That night I learned that metal bleachers plus below freezing temps equal one frozen rear end!

We all agreed that it was a fun way to spend a weekend!
