Ski Week in Utah!

We spent a fun week in Utah which involved lots of friends and family enjoying:

  • lots of skiing,
  • lots of fresh powder,
  • lots of eating,
  • lots of hot chocolate,
  • lots of hours watching the Olympics,
  • a competitive "Candy Bar Game"
  • and a few rambuncious and controversial games of "Love-O-Dometer!"
    (You will have to ask Mark Crandall for all of the details:)!)
  • lots of heart shaped sugar cookies,
  • and lot of love!

Thanks everyone for joining us on the slopes and at the cabin for all the fun!

Sonya getting on her "game face on"
as she skis the powder on The Pines!

Mark, strikes his "Lindsey Vonn" pose and
follows Sonya down the mountain!

Mark points to the sign of his first black diamond run!

Sonya, showing her excitement about "The Drop",
which she successfully skied a month ago and
was excited to take Mark down the black diamond run!
BTW, "black diamond" means that they are the most difficult
runs on the hill. It's kind of a big deal!

Tyler and Sonya at the end of the run down The Pines,
decide to take a break and sit/lay in the fresh powder!
I don't blame them a bit...skiing fresh powder is a lot of work!

Take a look at the run that Tyler took Sonya down!
She is a good sport and it's amazing that she is still smiling!

Cutest cousins!

Ashley, Allie and Sonya posing for "sisters picture!"

Mark wanted to get in on the fun
but as he made his way down the slope
and turned to pose for the picture,
he took out Sonya and dragged her down the hill.
So Mark decided to bag the idea of joining the "sisters picture"
and struck his own "girl catching" pose!

Kramer and Brooke skiing down Doc's run at the end of the day!

Brooke enjoying a nice run after a full day of skiing.
Go Bear!

Tyler is the first to roll doubles and
gets busy unwrapping the candy bar.

Matt, yelling/cheering Kramer on during the Candy bar game!

Sonya tries to grab some chocolate
while wearing the extra large gloves.

Allie trying to get a piece of chocolate bar
before someone rolls a double.

Dad scarfing down the chocolate
and quite enjoying himself!

The crowd goes crazy as Ashley tries to eat
another piece of chocolate!

Tyler and Sonya frosting their sugar cookies.

Mark and Tyler hurrying to frost their sugar cookies
so that they can eat them.
