Not Exactly Roughing It...

That is the Beaver Creek motto....and I personally love it.We kicked off vacation with some mountain side cocktails before our first day of skiing.

Matthew started off the vacation trying to learn to snowboard, but quickly realized he needed to stick with skiing.Libby was a natural on skis
they both loved every minute of it!!

Dan and I at the summit of Beaver Creek, a balmy -10 degreeslunch/cocktail break on Beaver Creek Mountain with my brother in law Jerry and his girlfriend Kari who came over for 3 days from Denver.
Jerry and I "chillin" on the mountain top ice couch

We met up with some of our STL friends...
we ate,
we drank,
we bowled.

I got to spend some time with my brother in law Jerry (and his girlfriend Kari)and we had a chance to go out for an adult only dinner at "Kelly Liken" from Top Chef.

Our last day, no ski school for the kids, they were ready to take on the mountain....

Our last night we met up with our friends again for a s'mores roast.
Finally, a montage of photos we took in the village.....hands down, one of our best trips!!


  1. You trip looks amazing! I am dying to go to Beaver Creek. Love your hair, I wish mine would grow that long but I swear it just stops growing at a certain length!

  2. Looks like so much fun and SO fun to meet up with STL people while you're there! I love that most of stl does spring breaks in the same places. There was a fb status the other day that said I forgot that naples is just a southern stl. The kids look adorable and you got some great pictures!!!
