We took the gondola up to the top of the mountain and went on a hike. It was a bit long for Violet.
But then we found snow. In July!
And the inevitable snowball fight soon followed.
This made me nervous.
Randomly, there were marmots everywhere.
After the long hike, there was an ice cream reward.
Probably our most fun night of the trip was doing a chuckwagon dinner.

The wagon ride was fun. We got attacked by "indians".

Then the kids got called up at the end of the show for singing and some small skits.
We did some shopping on the trip. Violet insisted on posing with every animal she saw in the stores.
We went to a small art fair and Violet got the most awesome face paint ever.
One of the super fun parts of the trip for Violet was getting to jump on the bungee trampoline. She went so high with no fear. She taught herself a forward flip. Later on our trip to Tahoe, she taught herself a backwards flip. She just barely made the weight cut off (40 pounds).

Back flip later in Lake Tahoe:
