Snowboarding trip

My friend Zil invited us to go to their time share up in the mountains. While we were there we played some games and went snowboarding. "Surprisingly" (or should I say not suprisingly?) Bryce fell and broke his wrist. Other than that we had a really fun trip.

It snowed like crazy and we had to dig our car out of about 3 feet of snow in order to get home.

Valentines day

For Valentines Day, Bryce surprised me by taking me to a 5 course dinner at the UVU culinary arts program dining room. It was a really fun experience and the food was very good.
Tasting Course: House Smoked Salmon with homemade Creme Fresh & Caviar
First Course: Handmade Butternut Tortelloni in an Herbed Wild Mushroom Broth
Salad: Parma Wrapped Arugula Salad with Grilled Pears & Fresh Cranberry
Entree: Pan Roasted Filet Mignon Bordelaise Candied Yam Gratin& Roast Winter Vegetables

Dessert: Chocolate Molten Rosemary Cake, Basil Panna Cotta with Passion Fruit Sauce, and Wild Berry Thyme Sorbet

We loved it! It was a blast!
