2nd Ski Trip This Year!

So this is the only picture I have of our ski trip today. Not quite what we had in mind AT ALL. We went to Copper Mtn to ski/snowboard this morning with Dan's cousin Emily, her husband Wade, and his uncle David. We had a first great run down the mountain and on our 2nd time down Dan fell and bent his thumb almost completely back....ouch! We spent the rest of our day at the hospital clinic there. Long story short he sprained a ligament and has a deep tissue contusion (bruising). He has to wear this nice neon green cast for a month. They didn't let him pick the color of his cast but I thought that it was kind of doesn't draw any attention at all:) I asked if he would let me sign it and I got a frown...I think that means no, haha.

Valentine's Day!

V-day this year ended up being a surprise get away and we had such a great time! When I got home from work Dan had surprised me with a night away at a Bed and Breakfast in Manitou Springs! He had arranged for his cousin to let Jack out while we were gone and we left to go check into our room! Then we walked down to a restaurant called The Loop that many people had recommended to us. It was really good! We went back to the B&B and sat in the hot tub and talked for the longest nice to be able to do that. Sometimes our weeks are just so busy! Then we stayed up late watching the Cosby show on TV (one of our new favorites:) The next morning they made us breakfast and then we walked around Manitou and went to all the different shops! I love surprises...they are so great! I have such a wonderful hubby!

They set up a little V-day display in our room:)

The B&B was victorian style

Haha....I had to get a pic of him in that robe before we went down to the hot tub! That's his best attempt to pose in his robe:)

Our 1st Ski Trip!

We each got four-time passes to Copper Mountain this winter to ski/snowboard. We went last Thursday for the first time and loved it!!! Dan snowboarded for the first time and I skied for the 3 time. It had been at least 6 or 7 years since I had gone and things seemed to come back to me as the day went on. It was a pretty cold day, but absolutely gorgeous! We can't wait to go back again. We went with Dan's uncle Dave and we are excited to next time have his cousin Emily and her husband, who also got passes, to go with us!

This was in the lodge, we had packed our lunch and left them in the lockers.

Beautiful Scenery picture!

David helped teach Dan how to snowboard...lets just say it was fun to watch!

By the end of the day they were both pros!
Exhausted by the end of the day!

It felt so nice to be warm inside:)

I had to post this pic....the night before Dan was trying on his gear and practicing inside.....he looks like a professional already....haha
