After spending the week at my mom’s house in Nebraska, we drove straight up to Dillon, CO with my mom and met David there Friday night. Â It was a 5 hour trip and Aiden did wonderful! Â He slept for most of it and by the time he woke up, we were almost there. Â Perfection.
We were all craving a relaxing weekend in a beautiful place, so this was perfect. The weekend entailed eating, drinking, running, and visiting the International Snow Sculpture Championship in Breckenridge. Â We didn’t even know that was this weekend, but it was a welcomed surprise since I’ve been interested in seeing it for a couple years.
Luckily, my Aunt and Uncle own a cabin up there, so we get a nice place to stay!
I went on my first run in a long time and I felt great even with the altitude being 10,000 feet. Â I’m targeting a 1/2 marathon for this summer, but I haven’t decided which one yet.
We ventured to Breckenridge for the snow sculptures on Saturday afternoon and it was packed!
Here are a few of my favorites:
We couldn’t pass up Baby Gap either, so we went there and bought the little mister a Valentine’s Day shirt!
We were starving by this point, so we went to Frisco (another mountain town) and ate at the Boatyard Grill. Â We love this place.
We started with some margaritas.
And then my mom and I split some buffalo sliders (with no bun for me) and some tacos!
I wasn’t sure what to order Aiden that wouldn’t be too crazy (or messy). Â I decided on the garlic mashed potatoes. Â He ate quite a bit of them and seemed to like them. Â He also nibbled off everyone else’s plates too!
This weekend was just what was needed. Â We had such a nice time. Â I always forget how much I love it up there.
In case you missed it last week, I started a podcast called “The Mother in Me.” Â I talk about varying aspects of motherhood and the trials and tribulations we face at our house! Â You can find me on iTunes!
What was your favorite part of the weekend?
Is the weather really cold where you are?Â
My sister lives in Minneapolis and I heard it was like -39 degrees. BRRRR
