Today we woke up to a beautiful sunny day. Today my Grouchy Husband and I took a break from the mountain to take the girls into the Steamboat base area and see the Ice Castle.
The plan was to spend the morning at the condo and then head out after my Baby got up from her nap.
The girls spent the morning drinking milk.
Then the girls did some morning yoga stretching with my Grouchy Husband. My Baby was showing them how to do downward facing dog.
And exchanged lots of morning kisses and hugs.
The Ice Castle was amazing! It started being built in December and was created by a combination of connecting pre-made icicles and misting during the night to create the ice walls. My mom and Ka Yee Yee (Auntie Karyn) joined us on our afternoon outing.
There are beautiful icicle formations on the aches that connect the different rooms of the Ice Castle.
The caverns inside the Ice Castle had icicles that covered the ceilings.
My favorite were the icicles that had pom poms on them.
The girls sat on the ice thrown.
My Grouchy Husband sat on the ice thrown with his two princesses.
My Princess and I stood in front of an amazing ice wall.
The girls love their Pau Pau (婆婆 maternal grandmother), I think sometimes more then me! The sun was in my Princess’ eyes so Ka Yee Yee gave her sunglasses. They are almost straight on her face.
My Princess said this was my Grouchy Husband’s and my room in the Ice Castle.
We had a great time walking through the Ice Castle. Now time to find some ice cream!
We walked into the Steamboat base area to find some ice cream. It was super crowded because of the nice day and it was close to the time the mountain closes.
Finding ice cream was not an easy task. We ended up getting some from a bar!
Near the entrance of the gondola is an old gondola cabin.
Steamboat is a beautiful mountain. It’s laid back and has a great ski school. It just needs an ice cream parlor.
When we got back to the condo, Ka Yee Yee made roast pork buns (叉煾包 ,cha siu bao). It was her first time making them and they were delicious.
My Dad and Uncle Billy have on their “Old Guy Rules” shirts. This is their uniform during ski vacations.
At the souvenir store I let my Princess pick out one thing and of course she chose the rubber band gun. My Grouchy was supposedly one of the best shooters in the police academy but could not hit the target. He claimed it wasn’t shooting straight. Haha.
Dinner tonight was rib roast, asparagus, salad, corn casserole, mashed potatoes, and sweet potato fries. I was full just looking at the food.
Loving our Colorado vacation,
