Denver Trip 2018

Every year my family gathers in Denver for my grandmother's birthday at the end of February. This year I decided to take Roman and plan a skiing day with my sister. Unfortunately, my grandmother passed away in January. We decided to make the trip anyway since I have cousins and aunts and uncles that live in Denver.

Roman started a new school 2 weeks before the trip, so I was pretty sure the new germs would cause him to get sick and sure enough he was throwing up the night before the trip. I crossed my fingers for a 24 hour bug and kept our plans. It ended up being a 4 day GI bug, that put a little damper on our trip. Roman did really well flying despite being sick and felt well enough to still have a little fun in Denver.

My cousin Kevin took my sister Meagan and I skiing in Copper Mountain. We both love skiing, even though we are both beginners. After the first run we both got a little sick from the altitude and the cold. It was 10 degrees with a wind chill making it feel like -6. Thankfully, Kevin had backup gear for us. After lunch, a couple shots and the sun coming out we felt much better and had a great afternoon! Turns out I'm a worse skier than I thought. No falls, but I need some practice.

I didn't take very many pictures during the trip since Roman was sick, but I always like to document  our vacations on my blog and refer to them later for the memories!

 Meagan and I got matching ski pants from Amazon. We wanted to look cute together, but honestly we were freezing!
