So Long, Snow

We finally had a morning to sleep in, and I was still awake before 7.  Body clock fail.  Ah, well, it allowed us to take our time packing up before we enjoyed one last tromp in the snow.  It was so hard to leave.  Much of the snow, especially on the south facing mountains, has melted, but tomorrow and Wednesday, Vail is going to get at least another half foot of snow.  I wanted to stay and see it falling again so badly.  Until this weekend, it was just shy of 3 years since I'd last seen any kind of snow.  I've resigned myself to the fact it might be another 3 years before I see more.  It's the fate of coastal prairie people.

We had a fabulous getaway, and I know I'm grateful we saved up and found deals to make this happen. There was only one time we nearly killed each other.  Apparently my fear of heights and ice make me say absolutely wonky things, and it might also mean I forgot that my hubby also really does know how to handle a car in winter weather.  Whatever.  We're safely alive because I play it safe and make us find hiking trails not halfway up mountains.  That's what normal people do, isn't it?  I apologized and we had chocolate at dinner for dessert to prove I was sorry, so yeah.  What's a vacation without at least one real life moment, right?

We love Vail Cascade, although without a super awesome discount like their Groupon deals, we'd never be able to afford it otherwise.  Check out the resort, and all of the other places we've mentioned this weekend.  They won't steer you wrong, and no, they didn't offer us any kind of anything for our review.  We just really liked the places we found.

Back to the grind.  All of the kids, 2 and 4 legged, are sleeping, and we're trying to muster up the desire to unpack.  Laundry tomorrow, friends!
