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.
