We went to Steamboat, CO 2 days after Christmas for a week. This was Izzy & Maggie's first time to ski...and our first time back in 9 years! Izzy did amazing in ski school & Maggie's 1 day in ski school was good...after the screaming subsided. After that, the school was booked up so we couldn't send her back since we only pre-booked 1 class for her. Bec & I also did 1 day of ski school & then we were on our own. Bec did really well & wanted to tackle steeper runs...I however, wanted to stay on the bunny slopes. ;-) I think I'm becoming more of a scaredy cat as I get older.
Highlights from our trip: some of us got stomach bug 1-2 days before we left, Maggie got it once we got there, we're all professional skiiers now, took a sleigh ride & went tubing on Saddleback Mountain (not to be confused w/ Brokeback Mountain), playing & sledding in snow, riding the gondola, bringing in the the new year as the snow fell.

to retrieve them for me. :-)

|This is the real Flashback! The top pic was taken when we went to Steamboat for
Spring Break 2005. Bec wanted to reenact the pic, so the bottom pic is Jan. 2014!
