A Weekend in Jackson

We went to Jackson Hole this weekend to visit my brother and his family. On Friday night we went to a winter festival. It was cold, but it was fun. We watched some dog sled races then headed over to Snow King, the ski hill in town, to watch some skiers come down the mountain with torches in their hands. Then there were fireworks, and I was really impressed by the fireworks! They were really low and the lights from the fireworks reflected on the snow-covered mountain. I was surprised by how impressed I was.

Then there was snowmobiling, and it was FUNFUNFUN! Also cold! But mostly fun.

I didn't take any pictures of us at my brother's new house, and that is too bad. Our activities at the house included playing with the kids, reading to the kids, eating really amazing food (ribs on Friday, fajitas on Saturday, pulled pork sandwiches on Sunday), playing the Wii and tickling little kids. I won over my niece by reading to her a series of Kiwi books about Hairy MaClary. Dave also really loved the Hairy MaClary books, and all the boys liked the book I got in my package last week.

Dave was so sad after you left...we thought he might cry.
