A visit from Kelly Smale

We have a fairly small direct family. I am an only child and Julie only has one sibling, her sister Sue. Sue and her husband Marty have three wonderful daughters, Kelly, Laura and Jackie. You can see pictures of the family from Kelly's high school graduation.

Kelly is on her winter break from Gonzaga and came to see us for a few days. Most people who visit Park City in the winter either ski or board and Kelly was no exception. Her first day was skiing, which she hadn't done since her entire family visited us a few years ago. Like most boarders, she decided ski boots were uncomfortable and unreasonable. She did well skiing, and notice how easily she posed with Julie.

The next day she chose to go with her experience: boarding. She got down harder slopes, more easily, but notice how hard it is for boarders to simply stand still on a slope.

On Wednesday, I had to head to "work", my hosting job at PCMR. Kelly, Julie and Jasper did some snowshoeing up the mountain behind our house.

We had a great time and wish she could have stayed longer, but it is almost time for Kelly to head back to college.
