Ritzy Weekend in Vail

Steve, Emy, and Jenny Corsini came out to Colorado for a family vacation and were kind enough to invite us to spend a few days with them in Vail at The Ritz Carlton!

It was ridiculously gorgeous.

Yeah, I will probably never stay somewhere so nice every again...
"We forgot a men's swimsuit"..."We will have one up to your room in  a moment sir."
"We are eating hamburgers and forgot ketchup"..."We will have some up to your room in  a moment mam."
"The kids need swimmies, please"..."Here are 3 brand new pairs."
"Can we please get 4 more bottles of Bvlgari shampoo and lotion?..."Of course, mam, right away."
or 1 week later when you realize you forgot your snowboarding boots there,
"We will FedEx them to you overnight, Mam."

The kids first gondola ride ever.

Beer consumption is actually encouraged while skiing:)

No one was afraid of heights, thank goodness.

The Adventure Center was located at the top of the first lift and had snow tubing and a super cool trampoline. The kids all went for the trampoline.

This one looked like she was going to puke for the first minute, but then relaxed and enjoyed it!

Ev barely moved, no smiles, just very serious the entire time.

Until he got off and got to eat some snow!

Then even better, we got to eat the most delicious gelato in the world. I am still dreaming about the pistachio...

Check out the cuties in their Ritz robes!

The hot tub was big enough for splashing and fun, and in a blizzard is even better!

The jet bath tubs were a bubble wonderland!

The kids skied, but barely.

H had way more fun making snow angels and whining about how cold she was.

Ian borrowed a sled from the ski school and had some fun sledding with the kids.

We decided to get them both ski lessons next year. I don't think we are the ones who should be teaching them, it never turns out very well.

We had such a relaxing and fun weekend and it was wonderful to spend time with friends we don't get to see very often!

National Western Stockshow

We hit the stock show this year with Jeff, Lindsay, and Chase. 
We didn't do the rodeo but we did get to see about a million vendors, eat some junky food, pet the sheep, feed the horses, and watch the cows being groomed.

Pizza + corn dogs + popcorn = super healthy lunch

That corn dog was as big has her head and she ate the WHOLE thing!

After making friends with the animals, we learned most of them were headed off to the chop house.

Tofu for dinner tonight!

The kids really wanted to participate and get into the grooming of the cows.

This was after a Saturday night sleepover H had at Chase's place.
We all keep hassling Holden with the question, "Are you going to marry Chase one day?" Wouldn't they have the cutest kids?
