It snowed on Sunday and Monday, but the rest of the week it was clear, blue skies and plenty of sunshine for our fun in the mountains. On Monday Faith took ski lessons at Copper while Andy, Joel and Gary skied/boarded. Aimee, Sarah, Avery, Anders, and I took turns going to the sledding hill in Silverthorne (working around nap times). Tuesday found Gary, Aimee, Joel and Sarah snowmobiling at Good Times in Breckenridge. You'll have to ask them about the return trip down the mountain ~ it was quite a ride! The rest of us met up with them at noon to switch cars and little ones. In the afternoon Faith, Avery, Andy and I went dog sledding and was it fantastic. We each got to the mush the dogs ~ flying over open fields and through the woods. Quite exciting! Wednesday Gary, Faith, and Andy hit the slopes again and had a wonderful time. Andy said it was the best day of skiing he ever had ~ helping Faith gain confidence and skill. By the end of the day they were able to go down at least one blue run. Aimee and Sarah took Avery and Anders swimming at the Silverthorne Rec Center in the morning and in the afternoon Avery and I had a fun trip up to Breckenridge to see the snow sculptures and to do some shopping.
At one point in the car driving out Avery was enjoying the sights and wonderful scenery and then said, "I could live here."
