But first we had to get there.
We all walked down from our condo to Park City's Main Street for the Sunday market. Thinking ahead, Sasha brought provisions - a leftover pork rib from our bbq the night before. That's a lot of foresight for a toddler. Nauseating foresight. Cold ribs before noon are not on my personal menu.
The children scaled the bronze bear, ate copious amounts of kettle corn, and wilted in the sun while Steve and I split a lobster roll. Yes, a lobster roll in Utah. And it rocked. Of course, a lobster roll in Utah costs $15 because they fly the lobster in from Maine every day, but it was worth every penny. Lobster = good before noon.
Then we were faced with decisions - how should we get to the Alpine Coaster? Take the free bus? Mundane. Walk? Hot. Ride the town lift and hike down the mountain to the coaster? Ding ding ding! Hiking down mountains is our kind of exercise.
In retrospect, we could have made more appropriate footwear choices for a hike. Sasha was the only one with sturdy shoes and she rode on Steve's back
Always fun to hike past the slope signs
The dandelions were a huge hit with the under-four set
The bigger kids went with bigger dandelions of course!
And finally we arrived at the slide-and-coaster zone and it was time to enjoy the ride. A very pleasant Sunday morning indeed.
