For Thanksgiving this year we decided to go up to the mountains and spend a few days in Breckenridge, CO. It is only 2 hours from our house but we hadn't been up there yet. We had Thanksgiving dinner a day early on Wednesday and then headed out on Thursday morning.
As soon as we arrived we strapped on some skates to go ice skating. They tried to rent Kyle some skates with toe picks, which hurt his Canadian pride. He had to ask specifically for 'hockey' skates. He insists he doesn't look like a figure skater...
This was the first time skating for Brooklyn and only the second time for the big girls but they all did great and had a fun time.
These sisters are so cute together.
Of course, hot chocolate is a necessity when skating.
Our hotel had a staircase in it with a loft up top. The girls thought it was the coolest to have stairs in a hotel room.
After skating we explored the town. It has a really cute main street with shops and restaurants. The ski hill is right beside town. You can see it behind us in this picture.
The next day we went swimming, shopping and eating. We had a little trouble with some altitude sickness as Breckenridge is at 9600 feet but other than that, had a really great Thanksgiving. weekend.
