Our Week According to Facebook - Our Vail Family Vacation

So, this past week we've been in Vail, Colorado for our family vacation. We met up with my parents, Julie & Ben and Miriam and Anthony for the week and it was A-MAZ-ING!!!!! We flew out Saturday and flew back last night. Needless to say, it was not long enough! I'm already having withdrawls! Anyway, here's a TON of pics from our vacation and our week according to Facebook!

Our week according to Facebook:

July 17:
"Packing up and going to time I log in I'll be in the beautiful mountains of Vail!"

July 19:
"Date: July 19th, Elevation: 8150, Teperature: 67 degrees, View: snowcapped mountains. And that's all I have to say about that!"

July 20:
"had a celebrity moment last night when I was walking back to the condo from Vail Village and saw Ryan Sutter drive by in the firetruck!!!"

"Making chicken enchiladas while watching a nice afternoon thunderstorm roll over the mountains in Vail...doesn't get much better than this!"

July 21:
"today's agenda: The Little Diner in Lionshead - 10 minutes, 90-minute massage - 10am, Beaver Creek Children's Museum - after lunch, BIG homemade dinner tonight with the fam at the condo. Seriously, why can't we all just live like we're on vacation?!?!?"

July 22:
"walked the Betty Ford Gardens today with Mom, Julie, Anthony, Miriam and Caleb. Great time while the boys are fly fishing today!"

July 23:
"had a GREAT day! Fun sister time, lunch and shopping and then Beaver Creek Rodeo! Gorgeous Day! Added more pics to the album..."

July 24:
"last full day in Vail, so very very sad..."

"is looking forward to the Chophouse in Lionshead and then the NY Philharmonic Symphony tonight!!"

July 26:
"is desperately missing the mountains but it's true, there's no place like home"

"is REALLY REALLY sad that I didn't say goodbye to my Dad before boarding the plane home yesterday. Dad, thank you for EVERYTHING, I love you so very much!!!"

"is L-O-V-I-N-G the thunderstorms, lightning and rain even though it would be that much sweeter if we were still in Vail!"

The End!
