Big horses, little donkeys, and the X-Games

weekend of January 28, 2006

What a weekend we had!

One afternoon we headed down to Paepke Park to visit our friends the Clydesdale horses.

(We met them for the first time on Friday when our pre-school went to visit them.)

So the Clydesdales don't get lonely when they travel, they have a special pal who travels

with them (sort of like their own personal Yankee Bear).

His name is Nicholas the Donkey. We got to pet him!

We strolled through town, and met up with the Clydesdales again across from

the Paradise Bakery!

Jeremy was Very Happy to see his pal Nicholas the Donkey again!

Then we went for Hot Chocolates at a cafe! YUMMY!

But the fun wasn't over yet! We climbed up the stairs of the Gondola Plaza, then

hiked up the steep hill above the Gondola station. As part of the X-Games which

are being held in town this weekend there is a big outdoor concert this evening.

On the side of the hill there was a HUGE ski jump and on top of the jump a band was

playing. Jeremy danced to the music while Brave Boys flew down the hill on their skis

and then flew up the wall into the air!

We really liked that!

Long after the sun had set we hiked back down the steep hill.

A HUGE crowd was gathering in the falling snow to listen to the music and to watch

the Brave Boys dancing with their skis on the steep wall.

There was a fleet of snowmobiles taking the Brave Boys back up to the top of the hill.

A very nice ski patrol lady noticed Alex eying her big black snowmobile. She asked him

if he would like to sit with her on the snowmobile. That made Alex VERY HAPPY!
