Road Trip!

On Sunday morning, we headed out for a trek to Utah to watch the Grizzlies and Steelheads do battle upon the ice! On our way there, we were treated to the rockin' sounds of the new band "Cheese for Dinner:"



Auntie Arika and Uncle Chris with the "Birthday Princess" These are college friends of ours who remember back when Bannanarama was a wee little thing.


The crew at "Crazy Jim's" buffet. I ate something with tentacles (Octopus? Squid? who knows?) Glenn had Questionable Sushi, and Arika and I tried the "rice crispy things that were made with fruity pebbles and fruit loops instead of rice crispies" I discovered that I can't eat something that looks back at me (the shrimp still had eyes attached) and all in all, it was a very...interesting dining experience.


Yay! after several wrong turns, we found the rink!



It's hockey time!


oops! We had to wait while they fixed the boards - that really *was* a hard hit, I guess!

Zamboni!

He shoots, He scores! The Steelheads celebrating their overtime win:


We headed for home, but ended up having an unplanned slumber party in Brigham City:


Because the weather got horrible and the roads really bad around about Ogden. In the morning, there was lots of snow!


Finally, a bit of sun:

And headed home:
