Photo Journal of the Ski Trip

We had a marvelous time. We were blessed to spend such quality time together in such a beautiful place. I relaxed a lot, in spite of doing the cooking and cleaning up. Sema took a lesson yesterday and skiied for real today. Kev boarded and DC skiied. The condo we rented was just right.

These are the caramel rolls we had for breakfast Saturday morning. I made them before we left, half with nuts and half without. I used the rest of the dough for my cabbage burgers (or bierocks, or Runzas, or krautburgers, or whatever you want to call them), which we had for lunch.



Following are some shots of the condo. Everyone's relaxing with some h0t chocolate and cookies, with a little Nuggets basketball after we settled in for the evening.
The next morning, after breakfast, the rest of them got ready for a day of swooshing down the slopes - - -
The view was fabulous. I spent the day enjoying it as I sat by the fire and read my books. I finished J.A. Jance's latest, Web of Evil, and began Margaret Truman's Murder at the Opera.
The first picture is what I could see from my perch on the couch. I intended to go walk around the village, but never got around to it!!
You can see the skiiers coming down the mountain.
This is just before they headed up this morning, and then at lunch before we headed home this afternoon.
Have a wonderful Monday!!

As I reviewed your photos (thanks for posting them!) my eyes welled up with gratitude...and my thoughts began to race as I imagined a time when a trip like this was little more than a hope. How amazing is our God! How beautiful are His promises. How perfect was your weekend!

Oh what breathtaking pictures! The lodge looked wonderful with the big roaring fireplace. The cabin was so pretty! The snow covered mountain was so serene. What a great way to spend time with the family and at the same time sneak in a little reading time! :)

Dawn said...

Kev, you should not point it out! I didn't even notice it. Now everyone will!

PEA said...

Ooooh sounds like it was a fabulous weekend!! Loved seeing all the pictures and the condo looked so very the way you could see the skiers come down the hill from the window!! I'm sure it was hard for you having to come back to the regular routine!!! Hugs xox

Barb said...

What a perfect weekend. The scenery simply doesn't get any better than that, especially when you can see if from inside, by that nice fire, with a book in your hand.

I LOVE Sema's cute hat!
