This is SO Not Like Home: Lisa's Trip Diary Day Two

Posted by Lisa on April 8, 2011

The Snowmama blogger "Mondays with Mary" says, it is the altitude that is causing my insomnia.  After tossing and turning until 4 AM last night, I decided to get up and do something useful. I made a quick run to the nicest Walmart I have ever been to for much-needed aloe vera for our sunburned faces.
Before we left the condo at 8:30 AM this morning to get our kids to snowboard school, my husband, Mike, masterfully prepared delicious ham, egg and cheese muffins for the family. What a hearty start to an energy-intensive day.

Since we rent our snowboards and gear from Park City Mountain Resort for our entire stay, we are able to store it in a complimentary locker at the slopes. It is so convenient to pick it up right there--a real perk!
Mike and I hit the slopes to work on some of the skills we were taught yesterday in our freestyle lessons. Snow conditions were good.
Our grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousin joined us for lunch at Legacy Lodge. Legacy has the BEST kobe beef meatloaf I have ever eaten. Really. This is a must try.

During our lunch, the sun turned the snow into a sticky mess.  After that, snowboarding was a challenge so we focused on the gorgous weather, beautiful surroundings and great company for the rest of the afternoon.
For dinner, we went exploring to the charming alpine village of Heber City. We dined on award-winning brisket and pulled pork at Tommy's Texas BBQ, nestled among authentic Old West buildings. We half expected to see Matt Dillon and Miss Kitty join Doc for barbecue ribs at the table next to us.
Back in Park City, we met up with friends for a relaxing swim and some hot-tubbing at our condo. The kids partied with us until 11:00 PM, snacking on cookie dough, before crashing in bed. This is SO not like home. We are making memories we will cherish for a lifetime.
As I sit here watching the Utah Jazz beat the Lakers, I see snow gently falling outside our window. Tomorrow is looking to be a really good day.
