Anywayyyyyyyy, our brownie sorta crumbled as we tried to put the cake together and it ended up looking like a heaping hot pile of.... something. But, it was a (quite tasty!) work of love. And that's what matters, right? 😜
(I think it is, because she loved it.)
(Also, just try to ignore Jon's creepy stalker-y like pose behind the cherubs in front of him. For every one great smiling pic, he has about 10 of these....) 😂😂😂😂
I was standing in the middle of the street, as I took this pic. They're just a bit high, don't you think? 😱❄️❄️❄️
And a couple more of Callum (and some of our other gang) cheering Connor (his best bud) on, since he was the last of the boys to get a final run in before it was shut down for the night. :)
Check out the moving sidewalk they got to use, through a tunnel and up the hill! :)
Callum was a little nervous and unsure about going inside the tunnel on his own (we four parents hung back to watch) but if you look closely in the 2nd pic he's smiling and had waved to the attendant there which I took as a good sign.
(The 3rd pic I took after a couple runs and he wasn't pleased that I was taking so many pics!) ;-)
And the last pic is one of Logan coming down the mountain! :)
But, on the drive to Squaw, the signs said all parking was full. We were all pretty hungry for lunch so we kept on toward Tahoe City and stopped for a yummy lunch there instead. After lunch we headed back to Squaw, hoping the early morning skiers were done. Signs still said the parking was full but we decided to drive around anyway and luckily found some parking spots!
First stop as we entered the village....bungee jumping for the kids! We figured since they had been in the car for a couple of hours (total drive time), that they could use this opportunity to burn some pent up energy!
Logan decided he was done a bit early - I guess the straps were rubbing his legs/butt which were starting to hurt. Callum, however, had an absolute blast (and wanted to do it again and again). :)
Everyone loved it! We spent over 2 hours in the bitter cold wind and snow, pushing and pulling the kids up and down the trails, laughing the entire time.
Here's a few snapshots. I'll post a few more following (I think my phone can only post a few pics at a time)
We got back to the cabin yesterday afternoon after a fun day of sledding with the kids (I'll post pics of that later) - the snow piled up everywhere along our streets is just so incredible that I had to take a few more pics before it got too dark. (It's so high that all street signs are covered and you can't see most of the 2 story homes, just to give you an idea)
Gaming by candlelight is a thing, right? ;-)

Our street connects to one of the bigger streets in the neighborhood that everyone drives on. So, when we reached that intersection I said to Jenn, just be careful for all the cars because this is a busy street.
And then I laughed at myself as I looked around. I had to take a few pics of the streets, left, right, in front and behind us, to show how crazy busy it was. ;-)
