A G & G Visit

Gigi & Grumpy came for a visit and we were so excited to see them!  They stayed just outside Hotel Latham and seemed to really enjoy the accommodations.  We had a wonderful weekend of exploring the valley, eating yummy food, and taking a beautiful hike to Kane Lake.

Big day in the backpack for the littlest jockey.

Gigi hiking despite a bad knee and doing great!

Grumpy and mascot Luke.
Not a bad destination.

I recognize those big lips.

Celebratory beer after the big hike.
So happy they came and only wish they could have stayed longer!  
Please come again soon!

Dish Duty

If you really want them clean...
just let yourself get into them.
 Or borrow Dax.

Visiting Ballerinas

Moscow, Berlin, Paris, London and ....Sun Valley.
Zach and I took a quick trip to San Francisco (not literally) when we were lucky enough to watch THE San Francisco Ballet perform for the first time at the Sun Valley Pavilion.  Amazing is an understatement for the absolute perfection in movement we witnessed.  It is evident that these dancers spend their lives crafting their skill and bodies in ballet. 
The final bow from the performers.
Thanks to a client of mine we were lucky enough to have front row seats to the performance.  Zach admittedly was a little shocked to see grown men that close in tights...that-tight...  But he persevered and managed to leave that evening with a new appreciation (or at least experience) for a different kind of dedication and commitment to passion and art, through ballet.  Or... he was trying to picture if any of those guys could ski or mountain bike.  

I went home closed my eyes, pointed my toes, and pretended I could do a pirouette again.  Like when I was six in ballet classes and anything was possible.  Unfortunately, the dancers made it look a lot easier then I remember it being.  I still had fun trying though.

US National Championship MB XC

Racing for two hours, over 18 miles, up and down a 3200ft mountain with 300 other spandex sporting bike enthusiasts, sounds more then intimidating to me.  But Zach left it all on the mountain today and made it look easy.

We are so proud of him!
