Homegrown Texan

Born and raised in Texas, I've found the home of my heart and soul in the Pacific Northwest. I love trees, cool weather, and rain. I'm a back to basics kind of gal just trying to raise my family and find a bit of time to slow down in this hectic life.

I just finalized the booking for our vacation to Vail the first week of September!

Yes, I know that's not ski season.  While I'd love to go skiing, it's still difficult for us with the kids.  Nathan is only just old enough to try, and not old enough to have endurance.  All those ski lessons and child care gets expensive, so we're just not up for a ski vacation as a family just yet.  We'll get there, though.

However, Vail is where Jim and I met, around this time of year (a little later).  It will be a welcome break from the summer heat, and I'm a forest kind of gal, so I'll be in heaven.  Should be plenty of things to keep both us and the kiddies entertained.  And with a 700 mile drive, we should be able to get there in one day no problem (seeing as how we've done 1000 miles to Austin, although admittedly there is no mountain pass driving involved there).  I've never driven up to Vail from the west side (only from Austin with my family many moons ago), so I'm looking forward to that as well.  I can't wait to pack up our little Prius and jet up there!

Now, to finalize my plans to drive with the boys out to Austin this summer...
