Sleigh Ride

Ivan and I chilled in the house for a little whille on April 6, 2010.

We took the gondola in Breckenridge.  It took us to the base of the mountain. 

It was snowing.  We had a late lunch at Sevens.  Ivan and I shared the vegetable chili and chicken udon noodle bowl.  Ivan figured out that I had altitude sickness.  That’s why I had headaches and thought that everything was too bright.

We drove back into town.  We looked for gloves and souvenirs.  We found some gloves that would keep us warm, but they weren’t waterproof.  We bought two cupcakes at Rocky Mountain Cupcakes. We got a Strawberry cupcake for Ivan and me and Black and White for Jim.  The cupcakes are good, but are expensive at $3 each.

We drove to Frisco.  We were taking a dinner sleigh ride with TwoBelowZero.  We got into our sleigh.  It was cold and snowing outside.  Our guide was named Jason.  The mules who were pulling our sleigh were named Jan and Judy.   Our guide put a blanket on us to keep us warm. 


It took a few minutes to arrive at the tent.  Here, we would have dinner and see a show.

Ivan’s last name was listed on one of the tables.  We were seated with a family of 5 from Florida and a couple who lived in Colorado.  The table had water and hot chocolate.  A man from Nashville welcomed  us. We drank the tasty warm hot chocolate to warm our bones.  Then our guides served the adults peppermint schnapps.  It was like drinking a peppermint candy cane with alcohol added.

We got a chicken cheese enchilada soup for a starter.  It was so very tasty!

Our main dish was a double chicken for me and Ivan got a vegetarian lasagna.  I wasn’t that hungry so I didn’t eat everything.  It did taste good though.

Our dessert came next.  It was apple crumble pie with whipped cream on top.  Ivan and I both took off the cream.  The apple crumble pie was delicious!


Our entertainment was the Nashville guy.  He sang many songs like Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond.  He was a good singer.

We had a great time on our first sleigh ride.  Everybody jumped back on the sleigh.  We were taken back to the main building.

Ivan and I drove back to the house.  We talked to Jim about our sleigh ride.  We gave him the cupcake and he said  thanks.  We watched tv with Jim for awhile.  Then, it was off to bed.
