Copper Mountain, Colorado

No new recipes for today. Things have been pretty simple in the meal department the past two weeks, but I wanted to share a few pictures from our ski trip to Copper Mountain, Colorado. My dad has been planning this family vacation out west for several years now. I remember he was even talking about it when I was still in high school. It’s been a long time coming. Finally, we were all able to make it happen. The trip was set in stone for over a year and, I must say, it lived up to the hype.

Having never been to Colorado before, I was taken back by the beautiful scenery. I can’t imagine living with a view of evergreen-studded, snow cap mountains through my back window. Simply amazing.

The altitude was a big adjustment for us Ohio folk. The first day we got in, we walked down to the village to get helmets and we could barely talk because we were so out of breath. Luckily, though, we were feeling better after a few days and none of us got too sick from the high elevation.

Robert and I were also able to meet up with Jeff, one of my friends from PT school, as well as one of his fellow engineering friends from college. I am a bit envious they get to live in Colorado year round, but I won’t hold it against them.

Another thing I noticed- everyone’s in good shape. I barely saw any overweight people. In fact, I think I may have been the plumpest one around. It turns out, Colorado is the thinnest state in the nation. Can’t say that about Ohio. :)

Aside from my mom’s injury on the last day, we had a wonderful time in Colorado. I can’t wait to go back again!

Oh, and how could I forget… we got to spend lots of quality time with this little leprechaun…

  2. questions..I mADE YOU SUGAR COOKIES INTO EASTER EGGS SHAPES AND i AM GONNA HAVE PEOPLE DECORATE THEM WITH YOUR ROYAL(?) ICING RECIPE TOO,DOES IT DRY FAST? ANY RECOMMEDATIONS AS TO PREP BEFORE WE DECORATE? i KNOW YOU CAN MAKE FROSTING AHEAD ,WHAT CAN WE EXPECT? there will be small kiddos involved….and possible drunk ones too..hehe

    • Hey khak- the royal icing does take a little bit of time to dry. What you may want to do (if you have time) is flood the cookies with a base color and let them dry overnight and then people can decorate those. Of course, if you’re enjoying wine, it may not even matter ;)
