Resting up for lots of fun the next day.
We left this guy with the Marzos while we skied the morning and then watched their little guy while they skied in the afternoon with their kids. Granby Ranch is 5 minutes from the timeshare. Extremely convenient.
Luke was excited and ready to try skiing on his own (without the leash/harness).
He did well and was cruising pretty good after a few runs.
Emma was all about "the experience." She did a few runs on the magic carpet, a few more on the bunny hill and then chilled at the lodge with Bryan or me.
Snack time included making letters out of granola bars.
Later that night, the kids enjoyed the perfect sledding hill right behind where we were staying.
These two were inseparable. Ethan and Luke were always moving so fast that it was difficult to capture a picture of the boys!
Myles and his cheese face.
Mr. Myles needed a little alone time.
We went to Grand Lake for a very impressive and fun sledding hill. We pulled off the highway and into a town with snow packed roads, huge icicles from the rooftops and snow-covered trees that made it feel like we were in a Christmas card! The Pedersens spend lots of time in this area of Colorado and were our local experts. I'm embarrassed that I didn't take ONE group picture. We were having too much fun to stop and hold still.
Gorgeous view from the top.
Luke liked blazing a new trail.
The girls were fearless on the sledding hill.
When Mom is watching, this is how the girls sled down the mountain.
When I wasn't watching, this occurred. Thankfully, everyone was okay and the girls were begging to go again!
This cute baby is all smiles. We loved watching this handsome guy while his family skied.
On our way home, we stopped for a few treats/drinks. As if I didn't love Granby enough, their gas station carries the best grape soda. We make sure to stop and grab at least one every time we visit. Another fantastic trip logged with friends and family.
