The Slippery Slope

Had some fresh snow fall in the Sierra so we "zoomed" up to Truckee on Friday night (Bay area traffic heading east is incredibly bad on Friday nights). One of my colleagues very generously gave me the key to her wonderful cabin.

Rolled in late, got up early, had breakfast at the Wagon Train in Truckee with stuffed animals staring at us glassy eyed then off to Sugar Bowl.

At the last minute Dexter joined us. Perfect weather, good snow. Had a great time. The boyz hit pretty much every run. Kitty and I worked on our carving.

Holidays at Whidbey 2009

Frances spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in the hospital threw a little curve at our holiday plans to catch the train to Whidbey Island for the usual Bolte get-together. But, we managed to get flights for a shorter visit than planned so off we went.

The folks were looking good!

Becky was looking relaxed

The Oregon crowd was there

Lots of card games (Grandpa remains the champ and guru)

We hit the Everett Climbing Gym

We hit the slopes at Mt Baker

We rang in the New Year and decade!
