Gavin and I spent last week in Colorado! The first half of the week we were skiing with his whole family around Avon.  I had never skied before, so we went skiing ahead of time at Hidden Valley here in the St. Louis area so I could master the super-basics.  The first day we still started too hard and I fell a lot on our first run. Fortunately Gavin went out and found the easier green runs and I wound up having a lot of fun despite my lack of skill.



We spent the last couple of days in Denver catching up with friends who have made their way there. We ate ramen,  walked around Boulder,


visited the Capitol,

saw the blue bear,


took tours of Hammond’s Candies and Celestial Seasonings, ate brunch at Snooze at Union Station, bought the requisite souvenir Christmas ornament, and visited the Forney Transportation Museum.

And we even saw a prairie dog.
