Highlights From Breckenridge
Friday morning I picked Carver up at camp (you've never seen a happier mama) and we drove back to Breckenridge to meet up with David and spend the rest of the weekend there. Carver had THE BEST WEEK EVER (his words) and WAS REALLY UNHAPPY TO LEAVE (my observation). I love that he had a fantastic time meeting new friends and trying new things, like kayaking! Back at Breckenridge the sun was out and the pool was warm. We had a pretty quiet evening and tucked Carver into bed early as he was starting to snarl at us he was so exhausted. On Saturday we went to a mountain top summer park and dropped 2 million dollars for our family of 5 to get in. It was worth it, though. We all had an incredible time. Here are some of the highlights.
Riding the shuttle up the mountain. Don't you love 12 year old teeth?


He was giggling before he started jumping.

Jumping higher.

Carver was doing flips that made my head spin.


Lily is never outdone by her brothers.

Super girl.

Riding up the chair lift for the alpine slide.

Ready. Set. Go.

Just think. In 4 years he'll have his driver's license.

I took this picture while going down the alpine slide. So. Much. Fun!

My boys bringing it home.

Lily and yours truly riding up the Alpine Roller Coaster. Probably the most fun I've had in years.

Could they be any cuter?

David at the end of the coaster.

He would not come down.

He climbed again, and again, and again.

Zinabu and David on top of the maze. See all that snow in the background? There was so
much snow on the slopes that they still had the tubing hill open. We did that too, but I didn't take any
photos as I was careening down the snow in my shorts on a rubber tube.

More climbing.

Double trouble.

I love my family!

Found your blog while searching google for families that have adopted from Ethiopia. We are looking at moving the family to Denver and are trying to see what there is for community of others that have adopted from ET. We have adopted two so far.

Great pictures and looks like a fun trip. If you have any recommnedations for ET adoptive groups around Denver please share.

Ahhh, this brings back so many memories. We took the kids to this exact same place in Breck a few years ago. That alpine coaster was probably the coolest thing ever!

That last family picture is awesome! Sometimes, it's worth spending a cool million or two for a day of family fun. Looks like it was a great time - love all the pics.
