Robin, Cathy, and the four of us headed out to NorthStar so the girls could go ice skating. Unfortunately, their web site advertised falsely, and the ice skating rink was a roller rink that day. The girls were pretty bummed and didn’t even want to try it. Robin called Squaw Valley, and their ice rink was also closed (good thing he thought to call!). I was proud of the Things, however, for deciding to have a good time anyhow. We checked out The Village at Northstar a little bit, then bought gondola tickets and went up the mountain, then down and up a different one to check out the new Ritz-Carlton. Wow! Hubby and the girls played in the arcade while Robin, Cathy & I took a tour of the hotel spa. I am now officially fantasizing about going their for our 15th anniversary in November, lol.
And this is the view Monday morning from the upstairs sleeping loft window. I love to sit in the rocker by the window with a blanket and my cup of coffee while I have some quiet time in the morning.
And at night, we rough it, lol.
