Ben came to visit us in March – we always enjoy his visit, because we get to put all the normal stuff on hold and be tourists in our own town for awhile. Lots of snowboarding, eating out and relaxing. It was a great time.
Ben got in on Wednesday and stayed ’til Monday. I think he snowboarded 4/6 days. He didn’t go out on Wednesday and not on Friday, but every other day, him and Chris were out on the slopes. I was able to join them for both Saturday and Sunday- that’s where most of the photos are from – I don’t think the boys took a lot of them when it was just the two of them. It was a lot of snowboarding – Chris and I normally just like to stay a couple hours, but Ben kept us out until 3 or 4 in the afternoon.
Ben was the first family member to meet Penguin – we had to let her go after her Bucky dog toy for a bit. He gave us that toy for xmas and she’s been slowing tearing it apart as we train her to hate Bucky just like we do.
Saturday we went to Pond Skimming at Canyons – it was a really nice sunny day! Nice random girl next to Ben decided to smile for the photo too.
Sunday we went to Powder Mountain – one of Chris and my favorite Utah resorts (other than Canyons!).
Here’s a photo of the creek for mom. It’s a little hard to see.
We did a little hike to get some pow pow for Ben – here’s the brothers strapping back in getting ready to shread the spring powder.
Aah.. the J-bar rope tow at Powder Mountain. I seem to remember Holly hating this. I think Ben had some issues too, Holly.. Don’t feel bad, it’s not easy.
