Snow day part deux

Thank you Martin Luther King Jr for having a birthday today, so that I could be off of work. Powder days like today happen once in a lifetime. It was wonderful to be MAKING MONEY while I was out in the snow.
Even if we did sit for 90 minutes waiting for the canyons to open up. It did mean we were some of the first people in the canyon.
And some of the first on the slopes.


There was no wait at Molly Green's for the famous plate of diet-ending nachos.


*Sorry to any of my blogging friends who have a dial-up internet connection. I promise that after the novelty of my new camera wears off, there will be significantly less pictures.

Christie,
I love reading your blog! I'm Gina's sister in law. Sorry that I'm spying ;). Hope you don't mind me commenting. Your ski day looks so fun. I like the pics your new camera takes!

Looks like such a fun day! I love the pics your new camera takes-awesome! Wish I A. liked skiing and B. was any good at it at all! I hate the snow and the cold. Waterskiing on the other hand is my fav!

No way - snow skiing is much better. I get serious anxiety in deep water. I can water ski, but its only because I'm too afraid to fall into the water. And then there is the issue of the swimming suit - snow pants and a parka are much more flattering!

Christie, I added you to my friends and fam list. Hope that's okay.

Oh you are so lucky you got the day off. We are the only company in the building that had to trudge through the snow to work. You are also brave to wait that long for the canyon to open. I fear I'm getting too old and impatient. Looks like a great day!

How fun!! I totally agree with you about the swimming suit vs parka and snowsuit, by the way. ha ha I have major anxiety in the deep water, too.... I have to tell you that those nachos look WONDERFUL. ha ha I swear, food is just so fabulous, huh?? (yes, I'm still dieting) Anyway, I'm so glad you guys had such a great day!! I'm jealous!!

I want a new camera!! Looks like fun...if you dial the snow down a notch! Sorry, but I am a Cali girl and snow is not conducive to flip flops!

What a fun day!!! I wish my husband liked to ski or snowboard. Maybe that is part of the reason I haven't been in 7 years! Sad! Those nachos look pretty darn good, too...
