Aspen and a Game

Paul had to go to Aspen for a meeting on a new house a client of his is building. They were sweet enough to invite me along! We left Friday morning, and since the meeting was only for an hour or two on Monday, we had plenty of time to relax and have a mini vaca!

I hadn't been back to Aspen since I hurt my back and I didn't realize how hard it would be to be so close to the mountain and not be able to snowboard down!

I had to take a mini gondola down to a restaurant where I would meet Paul every time he got done with a run.

Luckily I had a lot of work to do to keep me distracted from snowboarding!

...I love to embarrass Paul by making him take pictures of me doing touristy things! :)

We went to all three of Craig Cordts-Pearce's restaurants in Aspen. We met him the first night at Wild Fig and Paul's clients thought it would be fun for us to experience all of his restaurants! Each one was delicious and different from the first.

...Kevin Costner was at the table next to us here.

This morning I decided (with the help of Paul asking) to walk down to a bakery to bring some breakfast back to the house.

Here's some things I saw along my way.

This bird is called a Magpie, they were my favorite there. ...I called them flying penguins!

...and finally I made it to the bakery! It was so cute and you weren't allowed to have your cell phone on when you were inside!

When I got back, I hopped back into bed until Paul woke up.

Then back to work at the bottom of Snowmass mountain.

I met back up with Paul and we headed back into town.

I thought this blanket was beautiful.

...and, this outfit looked sooo comfy!

I was so sad that I wasn't able to snowboard, so I had to at least fall (safely) into the snow!

This is Pauls clients neighbor in Aspen city...

...this is their neighbor in their new house!

Heading to the airport, what a relaxing weekend!

...ohh, and we got to fly private on a Cessna Citation! Look at this view way above the clouds!

Landed back in Big-D!

We finished off our weekend with a Mav's game with the client.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and feeling blessed around the Holidays!

Love, Sarah

What? No picture of Kevin Costner? That definitely would have been the "touristy" thing to do!! LOL!! I love the mountains there, from what I've seen in pictures and I love the Aspen trees!! I enjoyed reading your Aspen "vaca" report and the pictures you posted!!
