Carnival pix

5 years ago today at Sierra at Tahoe

Fwd: Park city pics

These are from a tubing park, and then a Japanese 'shabu shabu' restaurant which is sort of like an Asian broth fondue.

I didn't get any pictures of the kids in ski lessons unfortunately.  One of the days they did was terribly cold, windy, and snowy/sleeting -- they were real troopers to put up with that.  It was so tough that PCMR ended up shutting down the mountain by midday, contacting the parents for early pickups from ski schools, and even issuing 50% refunds on the tuition for that day.

Getting refunds from a ski company is like trying to play 'tug of war' with Blucher.
