Field Trip #2 {Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum}

Today we headed over to Vail for our field trip.  I haven’t been as good this summer about getting in our weekly field trips.  We haven’t put a dent in our summer bucket list and we are on the other side of 4th of July.  {{{Starting to panic}}} You know what that means….the first day of school will be here before we know it!! Noooo!
Anyway, we had The Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum on our list for this summer and since we just live over the pass from Vail, we decided that would be a good trip to make this morning.  It was really informative and pretty awesome to see all the early skis and snowboards. There was also a display about the 10th Mountain Division that kept us all enthralled. We are looking forward to snowshoeing into one of the 10th Mountain Division huts this winter.  What a fun way to learn more about this part of our history.

The best part about the whole thing…..FREE.  And the parking…..FREE.  Hey, when you have 4 kids, free is so good.  Okay, so it probably wasn’t nice to say that the free part was the best, but it did take a close second.

After the museum we plopped down by the river and had a picnic lunch.  We strolled around Vail village for a while and then we came upon this……

A pirate ship playground.  I am not sure how we ever missed it before. A huge pirate ship.  The kids (all of them) were in heaven.

After making my kids walk the plank, we headed back to the car.  We also saw something else super cool but Sam wants to blog about it.

Have a great Tuesday.  We are off to the pool.
