Snow Much Fun ...

A few weeks ago my dad mentioned he had some time share points that would be expiring at the end of March. My wheels started turning and decided to use them for a Spring Break Get Away!

We were super lucky and were able to book 2 condos in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Dad and Bobbye joined us for a short trip full of fun, sun, snow and more snow!

When we arrived in Steamboat it was SUNNY ~ 60 degrees ~ and beautiful!! We spent our 1st afternoon eating lunch at the Tap House and shopping downtown. Since all of us are big Nugget fans we picked up pizza for dinner and headed back to the condo to watch the Nuggets beat the Atlanta Hawks. The kids and I skipped the 4th quarter and headed to the swimming pool.

Makenna found her favorite store while shopping!

After a beautiful 60 degree day … boy were we surprised when we woke up to 8” of fresh powder and LOTS more SNOW falling from the sky. --- PERFECT day for some Snow Tubing! We spend the afternoon Tubing at Saddleback Ranch. The kids had a BLAST!! It snowed ALL DAY LONG! It wasn’t super COLD but the SNOW was WET!!! By the time we left the Snow Hill we were all SOAKING WET.

The rest of the trip was spent relaxing, napping and swimming in the Hot Springs. Justin spent an hour straight riding the tube slides. Makenna was too short. Amazingly none of us got sick after swimming outside while it was snowing. The pool felt fabulous … 97 degrees … but when you had to get out it was BURRRRRRRRRRR Freezing COLD!

8 inches GONE ...

I finally had it with the daily tangle drama! I made an appointment with my hairstylist and decide it was time to have Makenna’s hair CUT not just trimmed. Wouldn’t you know I forgot my camera so I have NO great before pictures … no during pictures … nor any of the HUGE pile of hair lying on the floor after her cut pictures … but here are a few AFTER PHOTOS. 8 inches shorter and still below the shoulders … seriously my baby girl has been blessed with lots and lots of hair!
