We had a great weekend with Mary and Paul this year. Everyone was able to go including Matthew, Nathan and Sydney. We arrived on Friday, Jan 19 and stayed for three fun filled days.
Saturday was skiing and boarding at Vail. It had snowed a couple inches that evening which made for great conditions. We skied the entire mountain; front-side, back-bowls, and big sky basin. It was a great day.
Mary and Paul took us snowshoeing at the Keystone Nordic center on Sunday. That was really cool. We hiked for nearly four miles. Some of the snow was very deep. Everyone had a great time.
Sunday we returned to Keystone to ride the mountain. The good news was the crowds were very small. We loved the Keystone terrain park.
This weekend Mary, Paul, Lauren and Andrew came to visit us. The weather was absolutely perfect. They arrived after dinner on Friday.
Saturday morning we walked to the local farmer’s market and starbucks. Later in the day we met up with Paul’s nephew Steve who lives in Cincinnati and works for Western & Southern Insurance. We all took a tour on the Duck Boats. Matthew, Nicole and Jorden joined us for dinner at Nada‘s downtown.
On Sunday, the adults took a nice long walk while the kids slept. Steve drove up and the adults went to our community pool. Nathan and Andrew went to Kings Island while Lauren stayed home for some R&R.
On Sunday night we drove downtown to see the Labor Day fireworks from Steve’s 19th floor apartment right on the river. It was a spectacular view. This picture is a small sampling of the 400,000 people on each side of the Ohio River (800k total).
