Well, it was time to go home anyway. Lon got a nice hot bath when we got home. Washed the duck right off him!

One thing I am sorry I did not mention in the previous blog, Vasu's mother made sweets for him to bring back. Vasu presented me with a box of them. They are/were so very yummy. I have enjoyed them very much.
Uncle Vasu brought mommy some gorgeous white silk with silver embroidery on it that I will use to make something wonderful for myself, and a matching shirt for Lon. He brought this lovely outfit, a Kadhai kurta Pyajama.
The properly dressed Prince. The things that look like dots on the material are the beads and sequins.
We are so glad Uncle Vasu is home. We missed him.

Sunday was super, of course! We went down to have family photos taken! Lon met a new friend. I have no idea who this child is, but Lon and he splashed in the puddles for a while.
I had to get Lon a pair of sunglasses, it was SO bright. He looks like a *rad* boarder, at least that was one comment I heard as we passed. That and How Cute! What a sweetie! cool dude! Lon seems to have a public.
After family snow photos, Lon played in the snow fort! How much fun is that-- they built a snow fort!
It was too warm to wear a coat anymore! But those sunglasses stayed on!
Then we were off to the Gondola. We rode up the mountain, got off and rode back down. Lon fell asleep shortly after we *took off* and stayed asleep till we were off the mountain and almost back at the mountain house!
The incredible view on the way down. Okay, I did not mention this to my sister, however the gondola thingy terrifies me. I did it, I enjoyed the view, but I did indeed feel better once I was on the ground.
Lon wants his dinner! Pizza while we watch the Colts win the super bowl! He is wearing his apres-ski slippers from Grandma Phis! He loves them! Warm and comfy! The boys got a bath after the game. Lon went to sleep after his bath, while his cousin watched the puppy bowl 3. He loved that! Then he went to sleep too!
We had lunch at the Overland Express restaurant at the airport. Oh man! it was GREAT! Burger, fries and iced tea. Cherry pie and ice cream, it all came to 11 dollars! Usually airport food is tolerable at best and expensive. I highly recommend the airport in Bozeman. Actually, I highly recommend Montana. We had so much fun. I am so glad we went. Thank you, Karen!
After our shopping expedition, we went inner tubing. Lon went down the hill once. He sat in the middle, and I rode over him. He did not like it one little bit. Thanks, but no. However, Ing, LOVED going down the hill with the wind in her face. The rest of the family went down the hill several times while Lon and I took pictures, played in the snow. Lon had fun playing in the snow.
The view from the inner tube hill.
We got back to our Mountain House a little before sunset. Another beauty shot from the house.
Saturday night was good. The kids all played, I cooked. I made a vat of homemade spaghetti sauce, a all from scratch pizza (crust, sauce, the works) and chilled that uncooked, so it would be ready to go for the Superbowl the next afternoon, and before going to bed, I made cinnamon rolls--with walnuts and craisins and an orange glaze. I think everything turned out yummy

We are having so much fun!
This is the view from our mountain house. Pretty darn impressive.
Lon watching the little guys having ski lessons. He wants to join them. Next year I think he will be old enough to take directions and learn to make chocolate cake and french fries.
Doing a little shopping! Lon wanted Fritos and berry skittles. He got the Fritos. He never had them before, he really liked them.
We will continue blogging the rest of Saturday and super fun Sunday tomorrow.
Lon and I had the opportunity to go to Big Sky Montana for the weekend!
Lon is trying on his new snow gear before we go! He got too hot, and was not happy about the new gear. The jacket is a size 3, so he can wear it for at least one more winter, maybe two.
This is the bronze bear that greets you at the Bozeman Airport. He is a nice bear.
Lon and I took the Karst Stage up to Moonlight Basin Lodge. Checked everyone in, and then got the shuttle up to our mountain House.
It is cold up in the mountains!
Thus ends our first day in Montana. We had dinner, and the rest of our party came in about 2am. (Delta is not on our happy list!)
