Part 2: Sunday, April 1

[Part 1 of this trip can be found here: “Snowbird Trip 2018 (Part 1)“]


We woke up to blue skies. It was Easter, so I wanted to give Todd his first experience finding and opening plastic eggs. Todd was recently introduced to the PJ Masks television series, so he was excited to get the toy Owlette, Catboy, Gekko, Romeo, and Night Ninja figures. The monkey stuffed animal was a baby shower gift from his aunt Karin, and the basket was made by his great aunt Ginny. He was a fan of the jelly beans but not the Oreos (Mmm…good for me!) 🙂

Next up…skiing! We geared up to ride and ski the Chickadee lift at Snowbird (free for guests of the Cliff). Todd quickly got used to skiing off reins. Remember– at our home mountain of Mission Ridge he skied off reins only at the rope tow area.

We started a routine of taking a snack break at the Snowbird Center.

Apres-Ski = pool time! We spent a lot of time in the pool on this trip. We brought Todd’s diving sticks and diving rings, and each visit to the pool meant meeting new kids and sharing toys in the water. Todd did huge jumps into the pool, over and over. He pretended to be Hulk on the deck (i.e., bashing over yellow cones). He did his ‘Nestea Plunge’ move (like he started doing at the end of last summer). It was so much fun!
