Wahoo! We are officially on break from school! One whole week of nothing to do! Well, maybe not nothing but definitely lots of down time:) I was going to get some sleeping in time but since my body gets up everyday at 5:30, I woke up this morning at…5:30! Scott and I took advantage of all the teenagers sleeping in and went out for a Nordic ski. We got a few inches of snow last night and the trail was beautiful.
We ended up skiing about 5 miles. Another day in the mountains:)
Tonight was the first of three fundraisers for the US skimo team. It was a really fun night to benefit these amazing Summit County athletes.
Jaime, one of Sam’s coaches and fellow US team member (and badass skimo racer) giving the crowd a lesson on ski mountaineering.
Scott and I had a fabulous night out last night. We battled the snow storm down to Denver for a quick but much needed night away. The kids had their first night home alone and they rocked it. Don’t worry, not literally 🙂 No parties here! The friend that Scott works for gave us Elton John tickets for Christmas. He also treated us to a nice swanky dinner and a night in a hotel. We had a wonderful evening acting like adults. We couldn’t be more thankful for this generous gift!
The first two really good pics are courtesy of Byron Swezy who was much closer than us:) We had great seats on the club level but our pics aren’t quite as good! Anyway, Elton sounds amazing and put on a great show for nearly 3 hours.
Scott and I are exhausted but still excited about our night away!
We spent the day in Aspen today at a Nordic ski race. It was a gorgeous day to be outside! Paige skied well and finished in the top 20.
