We had the chance to get-a-way this past weekend and go to Vail, Colorado (actually we stayed in Beavercreek). Brett had a soccer tourney there and he was allowed to bring Maya and me along for the trip.

It is the most beautiful time of the year in Vail, all of the Aspen Trees are changing colors, with the cool fall wind, and the smell of fresh rain in the air. The drive up was so beautiful, with the mountain ranges, yellow trees and blue skies. I realized how much I love living in Colorado!

We were very blessed and the women in charge of lodging got us into a 2 bedroom, $500 a night condo for free! Our friends the Whites ended up coming with us since we had the extra space. We don't live the life of staying in million dollar condo's in the mountains so it was great to experience a piece of that life for 3 days!

Maya was even impressed with the granite counter tops, 3 flat screen TV's, jacuzzi bath tub, fire place, and the robes left hanging in the closet for us. Brett's soccer game schedule was kept light so he was able to spend more time with us, it was great!

You know that a weekend in the mountains on a rainy night would not be complete without warm chocolate chip cookies and milk in front of the fireplace while enjoying the company of good friends, so we did just that! And of course since we were "livin the life" we also enjoyed a bottle of wine together.

Daddy and Maya hanging out!

Gondolas and Ski lift were right outside of our room!

Family Time!

We can't wait until next year!
