A Colorado road trip!

Monday, April 17, 2017

Hello Everyone!

I Have been a little busy lately so I haven't had the chance to blog, at all! I still want to share a few things going on lately!

March 3rd  was the Mr.'s 35th birthday.
We didn't do much, but I did bake him a cake of which he actually had a slice! We went to Tulsa for the weekend and had some fun meals.

The following week we headed for Colorado for a fun road trip to Breckenridge. We drove out at 4:00am and made it to the Royal Gorge by about 2. It was amazing, and there is even a train ride you can take along the river at the bottom. We plan on taking it some time in the future.

We arrived around 4 and headed to our hotel. Breckenridge is unlike any other ski town in that everything is actually walking distance. The town center is where everything is located and we didn't have to drive anywhere. That was super convenient considering we had to drive quite a bit when we stayed in Vail and Aspen.

There was a huge sledding park that the kids really enjoyed. We sled for a bit then hiked up some short trails that were accessible to the kids.

I decided to ski one of the days, and although it would have been more fun with Zac, I actually really enjoyed going by myself. Something about being able to just go for it without having to worry about keeping up or catching up to anyone else. The trails were mostly easy and the few more advanced ones were not over-populated so I had enough room to go slower. I ended up skiing down several trails that I didn't plan to because I would just get on gondolas I would come across. It was scary to not know how high I was going, but once I got to the top I was fine and it wasn't as steep as you would think! Of all the skiing I've done, I think I like Breckenridge the best.

As much as I wanted the kids to wear their winter gear, it wasn't as cold as I expected which meant lots of vests for us!

The drive there and back was much easier than I anticipated. We had driven once last summer, but we took a scenic route to and from this trip which made it entertaining and fast. It takes us a total of 12 hours to make it there which is not bad at all!

I hope you all enjoyed my recap, thanks for stopping by!
