Thanksgiving in Whistler...again

We headed back to Whistler again this year for Thanksgiving. We all enjoy this weekend so much that we see no reason to change it up.
Weather cooperated and we spent the three days wandering around the village, eating, relaxing in the pool and hot tub and more eating.
One of our favourite places to be is the farmers market. There are always so many treats and we end up eating our way through from one end to the other. This year was no exception. The list of goodies we consumed included:
crepes, hand fruit pies; apple and cherry, maple candy, homemade marshmallow smores, real fruit juice snow cones, wood-fired pizza
 ....and that was probably all before lunch.
For lunch Cooper and I never miss the Annual Harvest Soup Contest. We discovered this the first year we came and have done it every year since. I look forward to sharing this with him. (Can't help but notice in this photo how much taller than me Cooper has gotten.)

Kids ask every year to go up the gondola and do the peak to peak from Whistler to Blackcomb. The large price tag for all of us to do that has always stopped us from going. But this year was the year. The weather was gorgeous so up we went.

 Feeling on top of the world!

Tag and his little snowman.

He absolutely loved the snow. He ran/rolled down this hill a few times. Hiking back up starting getting tiring.

A few shots in the village. Lily loved it! So many other dogs and the big field behind Reagan was the perfect place to chase a ball. She whined every time the kids got too far out of her reach.

I tried to spend as much time as I could right here. In the big adirondack chairs that are set up for those that want to sit back, enjoy their Starbucks and watch their family play. Perfection!

Lastly, the one and only family shot I got all weekend.
