Spring Break '08

We just returned from a week of bliss in Winter Park, CO. Our adventure started last Saturday morning. We had just received around 6 inches of snow (maybe more, maybe less) in Memphis!
We never, ever get snow, so this was a real treat. Except that we were leaving to drive to Colorado to spend a week in the snow. The Andersons piled up in our car, and the Butts and the Skaggs met us from Starkville. Our caravan left our house at 100:00 am Saturday morning! Our trek from Memphis to Little Rock took a little longer than expected. We sat in stand still traffic for 2.5 hours.
We finally arrived in Denver Sunday morning around 7:00. We had time to kill before we met the Fullers at the airport at 11:00, so we enjoyed a healthy breakfast at Waffle House and bought some bungee cords at Walmart. We rednecked it up in our car with luggage on top, and on the back. Real Nice Clark!
After our forever long drive, we arrived at our gorgeous condo!!!
It was snowing, and the hot tub was on, so the boys jumped in the hottub while the girls hit up the grocery store. We woke up early the next morning to hit the slopes, and tore it up! Luke and I went up the first time and found the Butts family scattered across the side of a mountain. Thank goodness we found them or I think Tricia would have given up for good. She was an excellent student (didnt yell or cry once), and skiied a BLUE the last day! I was so proud of her and Caleb! Luke and I had fun skiing with everyone the rest of the week, and were not ready to come home! The 3rd morning, Luke and I put on our big girl panties (and boxers) and skiied Outhouse. It is the longest black mogul run in CO (supposedly), and we Conquered it with flying colors (sort of...I have video footage of my hot husband conquering it....I merely made it down :)

Anyway, we had a fantastic vacation, and the best part was I got to hang out with Luke and my best friends for a whole week in snowy paradise!!
P.S. You can look at the rest of our pics on Shutterfly! (password:nurse)

What a fun trip!! Nothing's better than vacation with your husband and best friends.

I must have missed the Murry you mentioned on our blog, but a few days ago it was, "I can prove you are sleeping with the pizza delivery boy". Classic.

Check out the video on Claire Hardin's blog. It is so choice.

"scattered across the mountain" is such a nice way to put the tragedy that was my first day. And what is that home theater comment about?
