vail, colorado

The beautiful place we stayed at. 

We took our first family trip this year and went to Vail, Colorado to ski on the mountains. This was Tristan's first time ever skiing and he was ambivalent and excited all at the same time. His teacher Callie told us that for weeks up to the trip he kept talking about how he's "going skiing!" We told a little fib and enrolled him in ski school for the 3-6 year olds. He really enjoyed the classes and liked the teachers a lot. They said he did really well the first day, but probably won't be able to stop on his own until closer to 4 year's old. Here's a video of him going down the bunny slopes with Mommy. (I suppose iPhones don't have the best video quality??).

We also enjoyed our time with Steve, Sarah, and Alex who joined us for the trip. We ate at yummy places, shopped, played in the snow, played in the hotel, (Tristan would take an apple from the concierge desk every. single. time. we. walked. past. it.), enjoyed warm fires, enjoyed cold swimming pools, skied with friends, had some falls, took the kids on a gondola ride, ice skating, wonder zone play areas, lots of Starbucks, good beer, Tristan got to jump on the big trampoline, and overall just really enjoyed everyone's company and our visit together. Check out the pictures!
