Breckinridge, Colorado

I know, Im really late in this post, but I just had to. If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram you know that back in March I took a much needed 3 week vacation after my sisters wedding. (Yes! I hoped on a plane the day after her wedding. Talk about exhausted.) I went with some family friends, that are seriously like my second family– The Allen’s.  What better place to go when a little R & R is needed– the Mountains. We spent our time away from Alabama in Breckenridge, Co. Let me tell you, it was FANTASTIC. Who wouldn’t want to take private jet, and fly to Colorado and spend 3 weeks without a care in the world??

Though, as most of you know, one of the main reason we took a 3 week trip was because of friend, Jacob has Muscular Dystrophy, and skiing is one of the only sports that he can still participate in. It was such a joy to watch Jacob do something that he enjoyed so much. We had a blast skiing together, all the blue runs I mastered (ok, it was only like 3. But still, I DID IT!!). We took a trip into Denver one day. We visited the Zoo, we had a lovely dinner and most importantly we went to Gun Smoke, (ya know they store that the Hit Discovery Channel Show American Guns is based off of.) I honestly don’t think I have ever eaten so much in my life. I know lots of fantastic restaurants to choose from if you ever take a visit. 😉 I have posted several pictures below from my iPhone. I’m a horrible “photographer” and didn’t take a good camera, but you know what they say, ‘The best camera is the one you always have with out.”  Enjoy!

I certainly have a “Criminal Minds” moment when I ride in Mr. Jim’s plane.

On our day off we visited Gunsmoke and the Denver Zoo. It was certainly an adventure. I drove. In Denver traffic. It was SCRAY.

The skyline is just so beautiful. We got to stare at that for 3 weeks.

This is pretty much sums up our trip. Cold weather and my iPhone.

I’m a pro skier these days– so much they asked me to come teach the little kiddos next winter. Ok I’m just kidding.

My suitcase is packed. YES!! Those are all my bags. Thank goodness we didn’t have to pay for extra bags. They even washed the windows on the plane for us at the airport.

My true celebrity moment. A private plane and I got to fly it. SO Fun!!
