Wow what a trip!

We had 5 days to ski in Park City, 2 at Deer Valley, 1 at Canyons and 2 at Park City Mountain. We had blue skies at the begining of the week but they were in need of some fresh snow.

Go Postal and I getting ready to hit the trails

By Thursday, we got our wish....about 4-6" new and again another 3" on Friday!

here is McGuyver and Stitch Witch (aka Mrs Goodneedle) with Whole Wheat

Dairy Queen and Whole Wheat, we could sure see him on the slopes in his AltaColorado jacket.

On our day off, My Uncle Fred and his family drove over from Rock Springs Wyoming to visit. We ate at the Wasatch brewery and did a little window shopping.

Dairy Queen and Go Postal snuggling under her $5 quilt, she pieced several of the blocks, it has a wool batting and flannel batting....a good thing for Leadville!

We headed to Las Vegas next (Go Postal's Christmas present this year) Here is the new highway they are building at Hoover Dam. Since 9/11 the government has worried about the dam as a terrorism target so this new road will keep all cars off the dam. It is as impressive as the dam I think.

If you really want to feel like a rock star, stay at the new Hard Rock Hotel's HRH tower. They are all suites and you can listen to their music or plug in your ipod to have it playing on a great stereo in the room. Huge glass bathroom....very cool. The casino is filled with Rock memorabilia. We had dinner at the Pink Taco and got ready for the main reason to be in Vegas.......

Carlos Santana
We were on the eigth row, Go Postal had a grin on the whole night. This was a great show, he had three drummers and some horns and two great vocalists. I reminded him how lucky he was to get this evening for Valentines and not being dragged to some chick flick like most guys do!
Now its back to the real world and about 8 loads of laundry. Zorro and Banjo are glad to have us home, and with this trip behind us I am ready for some warmer weather.....

Can't wait to see you and hear all about it. I think I'm going to have to go back to Vegas just to see that bridge.
