(all pics in this post were shot on my little Canon G11 – the grainy ones at the top were shot through a window with zoom)
Day two (after the hike) was spent with Lisa and Nile, clients of mine that I actually just met about two weeks ago! They helped set up this whole stay and then invited us over for game day. Great times and they have THE CUTEST cabin up here. Sorry everyone, but the highlight of game day for me was when these cute little buggers hung out right outside the window. I was in love.
Lisa made guac. Nile made dip. Matt and I brought some goodies and the Mooberry’s came over too. Great group for game day!
If you’ve seen any of my posts on Facebook or Twitter you’d know how excited Matt has been to go skiing for the first time. In fact, he fell asleep with his goggles on after testing them out in the cold and snow Friday night.
Then, as if that didn’t show his excitement, I heard a ton of noise in the kitchen the next morning (Saturday) at 5:20 am to find this guy all decked out, ready to go, and making banana pancakes.
Found out later he barely slept the night before. Adorable
We were on the road by 6:40 am on Saturday so we wouldn’t hit any traffic on the one road to Breckenridge. A quick recap on the day: I haven’t skied in a while and Matt has NEVER so we decided to take a lesson together. Our instructor rocked but 30 minutes in, I remembered everything I had ever known and wanted to pluck my eyeballs out knowing there was another 4 hours of “here’s where your foot goes, and here’s how you ride the lift”. I managed to make it until lunch with Matt and had to try a few runs on my own. Then, I plucked Matt from class and pulled him down a green. He did great:) And let me tell you – green here is not like the greens in Ohio. But more on that when we share stories on Winter Park, our ski stop today.
Sorry there aren’t many pics – we weren’t ready to bring the cam on the slopes! I’ll post a few from my twitpic though.

Overall – amazing day two. Day three was just as great! More to come. We still don’t know exactly when we’re leaving. We’re thinking tomorrow (Monday) morning. Plans got a little open and well, unplanned. That’s good every so often:)
