sun valley, the end

Time is going fast.  This trip seems so long ago.  
Need to move on, need to take the Christmas decorations down, need to grasp that the holidays are over and that Eva's birthday is coming up fast.  Yikes.
The Roosevelt has been on Karl's list of places to eat for a while.  Tomato Basil soup is one of my favorite and the Roosevelt made a fantastic one.  The crab artichoke dip (if there is an artichoke dip on the menu, I almost always order it) was okay, I couldn't really tell there were artichokes in there.  The seared scallop salad was light and just right.  Karl said the trout was the best trout that he had ever had.
There was a tree lighting ceremony, with free hot cocoa and cider and a visit from Santa.  For a minute, I wished we had our kids with us.  The ice sculptures were very neat.  I had a wet bum for the rest of the night for the photo on the big ice chair.  
Karl always finds a way to get to the convenience store to get some ID lotto tickets.  
The Sunday brunch is always our final meal, here.  The chocolate crepe and the hot chocolate are my favorite.  I think I have blogged about this hot chocolate before, but that is just because it is so pretty.  

The goal was to have all the Christmas stuff done before we left.  Never quite happens that way.  Instead, I had hustle and bustle to get back to.  
But that is okay.  This trip gave me all the energy, plus some, to face the holiday mayhem (much of which is self imposed).

You and Karl are so cute on your throne of ice with your hot chocolates. Looks like fun.
