Whistler Day 1

Note: We have our new computer now and it is up and running!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Blogging is so smooth now and photo uploading works like a charm. I hope to be back to my normal blogging routine now and it feels so good to be back.

December started out with a huge treat for The Mr. and I. On the 2nd we headed up to Whistler BC for three nights and four days of fun. Sallad, Grace and Bri came up from the Seattle area, and The Mr.'s sister and her family came all the way from Missouri! Expectations were high as we drove up to our condo since we had spent several hours making our way up to Whistler. It seems that the more people you carpool and caravan with, the higher percentage of stops there are! We had a great time though, and stopped for coffee of course as well a stop at Nester's Market in Squamish BC for some quick groceries.

Anyways, back to my story. We pulled up to our Mountain Star condo and noticed that there were no lights on in any of the condos and soon found that the power was out! We sat in the freezing cold condo for 30 minutes before the power came on, it was definitely a strange welcome! Usually you expect a bright, warm and cozy hotel room to walk into.

The Mr., Sallad and Mrs. Missouri engaged in a bidding war to determine who got which room, resulting in the Mr. and I staying in the master bedroom (yippee!). Once we had settled in and unpacked a bit, we bundled up and headed over to the Whistler Village Stroll to find a place to eat dinner. After walking around and visiting a few different shops and restaurants, we finally settled on Earl's where we ate like kings. Later we went back to the condo (which was finally nice and warm thanks to those who cranked the heat and turned on the heated floors before we left) to play games, eat dessert and have a nice Bible reading in Acts.

My first glimpse of a ski run.

The pitch black living area of our condo, I used the flash.

The room that The Mr. and I ended up with was so nice. It was on the highest level of the condo all by itself with an attached bath and awesome view of mountains and Whistler village.

Whistler is neat at night. See the globe in the middle of this photo? That's the moon!

The 2010 Olympics have some strange creatures as mascots!

  1. Welcome back Chatty!!
    Auntie Char has wonderful taste - Bri's outfit is adorable!!

  2. Nice photos!!! Everything looks so much better off of your camera! :) It's hard to believe that trip has already come and gone, time goes so fast!

  3. Ahhh...Whistler...I love that place...and you must have had the most fabulous weather, hopefully good snow too! I think I may have eaten at Earl's last time I was there.

  4. Brings back fun memories, I think that's the first and last time I've been snow boarding in the last three almost four years was when we went up there with you guys. Looks like you had a great condo. Fun, fun! Glad your back on the blog.

  5. I haven't seen the "Missouris" in so long!

  6. LOVE the boots on Bri! Good score on the master bedroom...what a view.

  7. Lovely pics. Happy Holidays! I pray that your year was full of joy and success, and that 2010 will bring favor and prosperity.
