A Room With

  
a doorbell! Yep, our hotel room in Sun Valley had a doorbell. 

Lance had a seminar for work on Friday in Sun Valley.  The company putting on the seminar invited families to join in on the weekend and put us up at the Sun Valley Inn.  Our room was incredible - as big as the main level of our first house about 1000 sq feet.  When I walked in I was in shock.  Our room had 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a kitchen, a dining room, and a living area.  It was a blessing to have this much space with the kids and privacy for bedtime and nap time.  Here are a few pictures of our room:

Here are some photos of the weekend in Sun Valley (sorry there are quite a few): 
Mauryn was so tired by lunch on Saturday she fell asleep on Morgan and then slept for 5 hours! That was one monster nap!
Landon attempting to snowshoe right outside our room. 

Landon and Morgan on the sleigh snow sculpture.
The view from the pool! Notice the steam - the pool was outside!  There were walls surrounding the pool but there was no roof. The water was heated to 100-102 degrees. It was amazing - the kids loved it.

The view of some of the shops in the Sun Valley village. On the property there is a deli, many restaurants, a book store, gift shops, a chocolate foundry, two ice skating rinks (one inside and one outside)the lodge, and the inn as well as some condos.
There were many ice and snow sculptures around the property.

For some reason the only thing on Landon's agenda was to go bowling!  There is a bowling alley in the basement of the lodge. So, Landon got in his first bowling experience.

Check out those sweet bowling shoes - Landon wanted to know why he couldn't take them home.

We are so thankful for the opportunity to stay in Sun Valley at the inn for the weekend. It was just beautiful - lots of snow on the ground, sunshine, and mild temperatures. Lance was able to ski at Sun Valley and loved it (the best place he has EVER skied).  The kids and I were able to just lay low and enjoy some quiet afternoons.  It was a much needed reprieve from the day to day routines.
