Girl's Weekend in Vail

24 March 2010

I have the greatest girlfriends here in Colorado, they're way more adventurous and exciting than me. We took a girl's only weekend trip to Vail, CO and had an intense day of snowboarding. We stayed at the Vail Plaza because Jake and I had an used credit and the room was amazing!! The girls wanted to get to the mountain when the lifts opened and we literally did not stop boarding until the lifts closed. It was such a fun day and holy cow I'm sore. In the meantime Jake had his first daddy-dash weekend without me and they did some serious shopping.
Me and my friend Shauna, I graduated High School with her husband Doug Brown.
Emily, Megan, Shauna & Me.

Relaxing after a full day of boarding.

This is the hotel we stayed at.
Look at all those slopes! This was the view of Vail from our balcony.

And in the meantime, Jake took Dash shopping for the first time ever... and came home with the cutest shoes and hat. Dash is always wearing Jake's hat so now he has very own. Oh it's so cute on him. He wears it everywhere.

If you have toddlers - you MUST find shoes with the faux laces/velcro strip. Nike makes them & a lot of skate brands. They look like they're laced up but really they have a velcro strip you just pull up and down. Soo cute and convenient.

that looks like sooooo much fun; although, i'd be the bum that hung out in the lodge all day eating soup, sipping hot chocolate and reading a book all while snuggled in a blanket! you colorado girls mean serious business when it comes to your snow!

How fun for you - I'm glad you got to use your hotel room. You fit a lot of people in it!

Thanks for the invite Wendy, it was a ton of fun! I'm sure not as fun as getting up at the crack of dawn to freeze your butt off. That's funny, because Devin took Talon to the mall too! They should have gone together.
