Over this past spring break, we traveled to Silverthorne, Colorado for a week of skiing at Breckenridge and Keystone. We didn't go last year since Harbor was only a few months old, but at 16 months, he made the car ride just fine and had a fun time. It was nice to relax with friends and family. We shared a cabin with 11 people- our cabin was big and comfy and we really felt like we were on vacation. : )

On the road....
We arranged to pick Ashley, Rachel's roommate, up at the Denver airport. She flew in from Florida and it was fun getting to reunite with her. We also met up with Chase and Blake, friends of the girls', who were driving down from Omaha, Nebraska.
My parents and David all own their own skiis and boots, but I still rent mine. David bought a pair of skiis for me, but they ended up being too long. I honestly have come to love rentals over the years.. I love the K2 and Atomic brands.

My granny, Aunt Cathy and Uncle Tim were kind enough to keep Harbor for us the first full day so that we could ski a day in Breckenridge. It is a beautiful resort with a great transportaion system of free gondolas that carry you all the way to the summit. For people who don't ski, these gondolas are a great way to get to the lodge at the summit and socialize without having to worry about how to get down. : )
My mom and dad ski, which is lots of fun. Mom always carries a camera on the slopes, so I love having her share her camera chip with me.
