Spring Break

Well, after only a 15 hour ride in the car with 7 of us and all of our gear we arrived in Breckenridge! We made several stops along the way, with the last one in Denver getting dinner and groceries. (Notice where we stopped for dinner....




We arrived in Breckenridge around 8:30 pm Mountain Time. We made our way (with help from our Garmin) to the house we have rented for the week. It is a wonderful place with great views of the mountains.









We enjoyed lunch at Eric's, which seems to be a tradition when we come to Breckenridge. Seemed wrong not to be with Sheri and her family, as we always have in the past. We miss them by a week. Next time, for sure!!














K and I take a break outside of one of the shops.
We didn't take many breaks... most of them just to take a picture or two.












We played some games and R continued the quest of mastering the Rubik's cube. He has come up with a 'solution' involving complicated algorithms (which I can't wrap my mind around). We may have to pick up a few more for the long ride home. (A and K are also working on mastering it....)






Today we hit the slopes. I am going to attempt to teach M and SC how to ski. I'll let you know how it goes.....










Back at home, Sumo and Sophie are in the wonderful care of K & K, (who are house sitting as well) and I am sure are having a wonderful time.


Until Next Time...

What a wonderful-sounding trip. It's nice to know that adult kids can have so much fun with their parents.

Actually, it IS wrong for you to be there without us. Wrong wrong wrong. (Or maybe it's not wrong, but it's definitely SAD!)

Have a great time. I am sure it is a treat to have them all together for a trip.

Keep posting more pictures! ;-) I miss all of you too and am so glad you are having a blast. Making dinner sounds fun, sorry I'm missing out.

Sounds like a lot of fun! Enjoy the rest of the week:-)

P.S. Tell Ryan that I used to be able to do a Rubik's cube in under 2 minutes, back in my college days. Sadly, those brain cells have now left the building...
