Road Trip Part 3: Party at 9,600 feet


Okay, so our little trip to Breckenridge wasn't exactly a party. The real party was back at 5,280 feet where we left the kiddos to play with Grandma and Grandpa while Jacob and I headed to the mountains for a relaxing mini vacation before we headed back to Tucson. Breckenridge is a old mining town turned ski resort in the winter, and a cool (as in not hot), fun place to hang out and enjoy the outdoors in the summer. We had a great time watching movies, eating out, shopping, enjoying the scenery, watching the Olympics, swimming, and taking pictures. We're thinking we might pick up and move to Breckenridge, and open a Belgian Waffle stand. I think we could make pretty good money selling authentic, piping hot, yummy, sugary waffles to the skiers. Or maybe we'll just work at the grocery store and become ski bums.

We got some snow!!!


Nice senior picture pose, huh. I think I like this one better than my actual senior picture.

There are some very cool old buildings in Breck (I have to start using the local jargon if we're going to move there). :)

Sounds like fun! Mini vacations without kiddos are always fun! :) The pictures are so pretty.

We sometimes think that if we didn't have Erica, we would just spend a winter working on the slopes and enjoying the free rides. Maybe someday.
