Vail-entine



No, it isn't a misspelling (although I can't blame you for thinking it might be since your are reading my blog). Thanks to the Kari Godmother, Matt, Annabelle and I had a very nice time in Vail over the weekend. While our goal was not educational, I did learn a few things.

1. I don't have enough money or pretense to really enjoy Vail the way many do.

2. Make sure your cell phone actually works in Vail or come up with a plan ahead of time. Saturday night was frustrating as Matt and I chased each other all over Vail trying to meet up because the stupid cell phones were not working well.

3. Any place that provides fluffy white robes and slippers should be stayed in for more than one night.

4. It is easy to eat well on someone else's dime

It was a very enjoyable mini-trip. The drive up and back was very "Colorado" with lots of snow on the roads and a beautiful view. The hotel was very nice. We had an amazing dinner with some of Matt's co-workers. My favorite part, by far, was the bottomless Mimosa breakfast we had on Valentines day. We sat and enjoyed watching the snow fall, ate a fabulous spread of food and drank one to many mimosas. I am blessed to have such a great valentine, who in turn has blessed me with 3 mini valentines.

Oh, I am so praising the Lord that you and Matthew got to get away for, at least, the weekend. You certainly needed it. Matthew said that Valentine's Day morning was the perfect morning. Love your picture and what the girls made for papa. Hugs and kisses all around!
