Breckenridge and the FIRST snow fall!
While staying in Frisco we decided to visit Breckenridge since it's only 20 minutes up the road. If I had to rate my fav town this weekend it would be Breckenridge, Frisco and then Vail!
Cullen and the girls and I headed to a cute little children's museum and then got juice and smoothie bowls at_____. Breckenridge has a pretty chill vibe to it and super artsy! I loved a number of families roaming around and all the cute little boutiques, restaurants and this little crepe truck we saw:) There was a really fun art installation that the girls loved and my favorite thing of all is the leaves were changing!!!
Then headed back for naps and cozy time by the fireplace. It rained the rest of the afternoon BUT then the rain turned into SNOW!!!!!!That's right I just wrote SNOW! I wouldn't say that I love snow, but there is something about it snowing in the mountains that is just magical!
In all my life I've never seen SNOW in September!! it was pretty dreamy being in the mountains and coming out of dinner to see the top of the mountains covered:) As we headed back home the next day all we could do was ooh and ahh while gazing at the snow cap mountains. then the fog, and then the leaves changing colors it was such sight and I felt so thankful that we got to enjoy such beauty!
Weekend Getaway to the Mountains
Headed to the mountains last weekend for my SIL's Ember & Aura pop-up shop in Vail. This was my first time in Vail and my first time really being in the mountains, AND I LOVED IT! How have I been a beach girl for the last 9 months but now I feel more like a mountain girl!! Can you be both?
We drove up to Vail on Thursday before we checked into our Airbnb. It was simply breathtaking... you kinda felt like you were in the Swiss Alps and not in Colorado! We ate at a yummy little beer garden where we were surrounded by people speaking all different languages. The girls were charming everyone as they laughed and walked through town. Isla found a fountain that she decided she wanted to splash in even though it was 60 degrees out! After that, we found some new friends big bird and Elmo and then headed to our Airbnb. Which I thought Vail was adorable but Frisco charmed me instantly and maybe was more my speed. A cute charming town that truly looked like a mountain town surrounded by the mountains gorgeous blue skies and lots of cute boutiques and restaurants.
The next day I helped my SIL with her Sustainable Vail Pop-up for a few hours and did some window shopping and then headed back to have lunch with the girls!
Seriously love the vibe of the mountains, how they make you feel in awe and at peace with everything. So thankful for all our little trips around Colorado to get a better feel of our beautiful country!
Have you visited Colorado? Do you have a favorite spot that we must see?? I would love to know!
Colorado Springs, The Garden of the Gods Park
So guys, I' think I'm becoming a mountain person!! It's crazy to think we've spent the last 8 months living by the beach and although I loved it I am truly taken with the mountains right now!
The Garden of the Gods is so breathtaking and there is something about driving down a road and then all of a sudden these huge red rocks appear and they are absolutely gorgeous and unexpected!
I feel like since we've gotten to Denver I've needed to up the girls' wardrobe we really only had summer clothes from the last few months and as we roll into fall it's getting chilly here and especially when we are up in the mountains. My SIL laughs every time we talk and I tell her that there is a SUPER TARGET nearby and it seriously has the best selection of clothing for kids and clothing for mamas! I mean, have you check out the Who What Wear Collection? I could never find it online but the super target has it all!
If you've been to Denver or Colorado and you have any must-have places we need to see, please let me know!!
