Just days after we returned from our beach week in South Carolina, we repacked our bags and headed to Vail to spend the week with Michael’s family. His family has gone to Vail for the past 4 summers and although we’ve only made it to the latest 2, it’s a sweet tradition and a beautiful place to gather. And Vail temperatures definitely beat the heat that we were feeling in DC and they were going through in Arizona!

One 4 hour flight to Denver + 2 hours in the car + one Colt puke in the car RIGHT before we pulled up… AND WE MADE IT!!!!

One highlight of our trip was an amazing outdoor Symphony performance of Beethoven Lives Upstairs. Preempted by the instrument “petting zoo” where the kids could touch and play the instruments.

Harder than it looks but he got it.
