I wanted to share a few photos from our trip to Beaver Creek with the in-laws 🙂 The people that went were: Becky (my mother-in-law), Shelby (sister-in-law), Jimmy (Shelby’s boyfriend), Dave (brother-in-law), Claire (Dave’s roommate), Dan, and myself. We got up there Saturday afternoon, and just hung out at the condo and had a nice dinner. Sunday (Jan 3) we went ice skating, then went tubing at Vail. Monday we went skiing. Tuesday we checked out about 10 and drove home!
Ice Skating – Sunday, January 3rd
Ice skating in the middle of Beaver Creek Village!
Dan actually seems to know what he’s doing!
It’s really hard to take a selfie facing into the sun on reflective ice…
I LOVE this photo of me 🙂
I was coming in a little too hot… totally almost hit Dan 😛 I thought this face was hilarious!
See? I was pretty dang close haha
Very nice of Dan to trade me his thin gloves for my thick mittens… it was really warm in the sun
We were actively skating when I took this, which was quite difficult…
Tubing at Vail – Sunday, January 3rd
Riding the gondola up to the tubing!

Skiing at Beaver Creek – Monday, January 4th

Up we go!
It really was gorgeous! Warm, but gorgeous 🙂
Finally, some photos of me skiing!
I’m so very grateful that my body let me enjoy this trip! I was surprised I was able to ski, especially after the ice skating! 🙂 It was really fun! See, life doesn’t necessarily have to be put on hold, it just takes a little longer to be able to pick things back up again!
