We spent this last week at our time share in Vail. It was so nice to get away and have a change of scenery and pace. Foote's parents came up on Thursday and spent a couple days with us as well. The girls of course loved to play in the pool and would have been ok to just do that all day everyday. Brooklyn is following in Aly's wake, she is completely confident in her ability to swim without help as long as she has her water wings on. It is so cute to watch her crawl to the side of the pool and lower her little legs in and drop off the wall into the water.
Some of the highlights of the week were:
Lounging in the hot tub every night after the girls were in bed and enjoying the quiet, grownup conversation.
Brooklyn and Alyson's excitement as we rode the Gondola up the ski slope and enjoyed the beautiful mountain views
Foote's parents watching the girls so he and I could spend half a day on the Colorado river in an inflatable kayak
Sneaking off with my mother-in-law to get a pedicure
Eating Haagen Daas ice cream while listening to the live music at the Vail arts festival while people watching.
All the great mountain trails to do my morning runs on and take our evening walks on.
spending the day at Piney Lake, so beautiful! Great Scenery and Aly and Brookie loved the horses except Aly wasn't being very careful while feeding the pony and it bit her finger OUCH!!!, but she still had fun.
