Yeehaw! Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures Steamboat is Here

Mort and I couldn’t wait to show you our new book!  It’s all about the adventure we had in Steamboat Springs, CO.

The real book is coming, but here is a preview that you can flip through with your parents!

Mort and I had so much fun on our adventure in Steamboat. We don’t want to tell you EVERYTHING, but what I will say is that we took selfies with Olympians, met real Olympians and relaxed with our stepmom, dad and li’l sis in Strawberry Park hot springs!

Did you know there are more winter Olympians from Steamboat than any other town in North America? My stepmom told us there must be something in the water. So Mort and I are pretty sure, because if you drink lots of it, you could POSSIBLY become an Olympian too.

Check out the flipbook below!

Then, save the date for our official launch in Steamboat Springs on December 4th at The Depot from 5 to 7pm. The children of Steamboat Springs that illustrated the book will be there signing the books and their art work will be on display.  Mort and I can’t wait to see them all again!

Hey Mort! It’s Time for the Winter Carnival in Steamboat

It’s time for the Winter Carnival in Steamboat Springs!  Mort and I are so excited.  We went last year and we can’t wait!  There are so many things we can’t wait to do.

I’ve been dreaming about the Soda Pop Slalom, Skijoring and all of the awesome winter activities that happen down Lincoln Avenue, on Mount Werner and on Howelsen Hill!

Slalom

Everything starts on Wednesday, but Mort and I can’t get there until Friday night.

I think the first event we are going to go to is the Tubing Party on Friday night. Zooming down Howelsen Hill under the lights is going to be super fun.  My Dad can’t wait to take us there.

On Saturday, there are so many street events.  Mort and I are going to get our badge for participation. Apparently if you don’t you have to push a peanut down Lincoln Avenue with your nose.  Mort thought that might be fun given his nose is extra large and red.  But I’d rather be in the racing with everyone in the snow! My Dad told us there are 400 tons of snow on Lincoln Avenue for all of the events.

We get to race behind horses, catch big air over jumps and be in a parade.  I’ve got my skis and my cowboy hat already. Check out how fast you go behind a horse! Yahoo! Mort went pretty fast last year. I think I was faster.

Saturday night we are going to ski down with lights on Howelsen Hill. We will do more racing on Sunday.

Come see Mort and I.  We can’t wait to meet you and more importantly, have some winter fun!

Mort and I had an AWESOME time at the Steamboat Holiday Festival put on by Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporations. Santa on horseback was so cool. We had no idea he could ride. Even his reindeer showed up for some holiday fun.

Mort and I rocked out in front of the stage while Face sang their harmonies. They were awesome. After that, Elyssa, the author of “Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures Steamboat” read our book on the stage with all of the children. The kids loved it. How AWESOME is that!

We had to practically drag Mort the Moose out of there. He didn’t want to leave. But we really had to get to sleep early so that we could be ready for another BIG day on Mount Werner.
