Winter Adventures

This winter has been one for the record books! There has been hardly any snow, but we've found lots of fun ways to enjoy the snow. We got to go with Greg's friends to a cabin up near Deer Valley for the weekend. It was quite an adventure because we had to snowmobile in and pack all of our gear and food on the snowmobiles. We watched movies in our snow gear as we waited for the wood burning stove to warm the house. The weather was perfect and we loved getting a few rides in.

A week later, we decided to take the day off of work and go skiing up at Solitude. Greg skied and I snowboarded for the first time in 8 years! It was so relaxing to go with Greg and not have to compete or keep up with anyone. He's a real gem and so good at skiing! We fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams and ate lunch at the lodge, complete with a hamburger and orange dreamsicles. I was sore for a week, but it was definitely worth it!

We also got to go to Sundance a couple times this winter. My work party was at Sundance so we got a discounted room. It was in a quaint little cottage and really fun. While we were there, we saw this beautiful ring. I loved it and thought it would go perfect with my wedding bands. We ended up going up to Sundance a few more times to meet the artist who made the ring and to finally buy it! Greg gave it to me on Valentine's day and it's a treasure we'll have forever.

Last weekend for Valentine's day, we went up to Aspen Grove for BYU's marriage weekend getaway. It was awesome! Our registration covered an overnight stay, 3 delicious meals, 4 hours of workshops from one of my favorite professors (Dr. Jason Carroll), and snow shoeing. Add a couple rounds of ping pong, air hockey, and BYU creamery ice cream and it made for the perfect weekend. In our downtime we played "Not So Trivial Pursuit" which is a game of cards that have random questions about you and your family. Fun times! Unfortunately we had to run back home to prep for our talks we were giving in church the next day, but it was a great weekend.
