Breckenridge is one of my favorite mountain towns. I like that it's an actual town instead of a fabricated ski-town like Vail. Main Street is lined with unique shops (rather than the same old kitschy Colorado knick-knack and t-shirt shops) and local restaurants.
On Saturday for dinner we had "Colorado Inspired Cuisine" at Relish. I enjoyed this "Breckenridge Vodka Cosmo-Mintini" and a fancy chocolate-peanut butter dessert concoction. For my entree I had a steak with mashed potatoes and Swiss chard - It was good but not amazing.
It was so fun to spend time with these lovely ladies! It's been a long time since we've all gotten together. I feel so lucky to have such great friends even if they are far away now.
After dinner we took advantage of the outdoor hot tub at the condo. Bliss!
On Sunday morning we went to the Cabin Coffee Company for breakfast. I realized that when I'm in Denver I go to Starbucks exclusively, but when I'm anywhere else I prefer to try a local coffeeshop. I thought the decor in this one was really cute.
For some reason the drive home went by faster even though I stopped a couple times to take photos of the beautiful views! I am fascinated by the blink-and-you'll-miss-it towns in the middle of nowhere. Who lives there? What do they do for work? Where do they buy groceries?
The view from Wolf Creek Pass was incredible!
This stretch of highway is called the Gunbarrel - Any idea why?
Some other events this weekend back at the homestead...
I think Abel is getting ready to start crawling. He's doing so much wiggling and rolling and rocking on his hands and knees. It's only a matter of time before he's on the go! He's also been eating and loving all kinds of new solid food.
Seven months old!
Swede has been enjoying painting outside on the easel we set up on the back porch. Mostly she's been painting "dinosaurs with sharp teeth." I also gave her a haircut this weekend, and we've been having great success with potty training - Hooray!
Brushing Pengy's hair "to get the tangles out"
Also, I saw this article on Facebook: 10 Things No One Tells You About Having a Second Kid... It is so funny and SO TRUE. No way am I doing that stupid music class again.
How was your weekend? Do you prefer chain or local coffeeshops? Have you ever imagined living in a tiny (seriously tiny, like population: 50) town?
