Ahhhh Yosemite in the winter....

yes, Hayden and i snuck away to the mountains. On sunday early evening we drove up to the valley and stayed at our friend Joe's house. Hayden was thrilled to get there to see Joe and his friend Ted. He just has a good time with them. They always tease him by saying they wrestle bears in the early morning out on the Ahwahnee meadow. i think Hayden is catching on. Especially when they said something about gearing up, lowering down and cleaning the falls. i didn't get a chance to take many pictures because we were in such a rush. We had a fabulous breakfast a la Joe then headed up to Badger Pass. We arrived and were skiing by 10:00. Around 2:00 we decided to stop for lunch...we thought it was 12:00 ooooppps! Hayden decided he had enough so we packed up and headed home. He did a great job remembering how to get off the lift...one fall. Kinda like a pile up on i5. Not his fault though.

As always the Valley was beautiful. My favorite season up there. Not too many tourists and a lot of snow. Hayden was amazed to wake up in the morning to all that stuff.
