Greg’s 60th Birthday


Greg's 60th BirthdayWe took Friday off to head up to the cabin to celebrate Greg’s 60th birthday with him; we didn’t expect to be greeted with close to a foot of fresh powder at an almost empty Bear Valley ski resort!  The fact that we all had complimentary lift tickets from when we saw the latest Warren Miller flick made the powder day all that much better.  Greg was working the powder on his new skis like a man about to celebrate his 40th!  We ran into the Rayborns on the mountain and all got to hold baby Kate after we were done on the slopes.  We also took a nice hike around Big Trees State Park and had an awesome feast of rib eyes, mashed potatoes, Jenni V’s famous prosciutto pumpkin salad and a fabulous homemade cheesecake (Andi’s recipe) for Greg’s birthday dinner.  Thanks for turning 60, Greg!
