Another day, another vacation post 🙂 . I’m almost done! Just one more after this one.
Today…the lazy days of days five and six.
Day five was New Year’s Day…or as we say in our family, Grandmother’s birthday 🙂 . After we called and wished my precious grandmother a happy birthday, the boys went off to snowboard that morning and the girls stayed behind to do a whole lot of chilling out. It was perrrrfect!
Around noon, the girls all went to the mountain to have lunch with the boys on the base (and bring them home). I’m wearing that Patagonia sweater from this fall. It’s so cozy and comes in many colors! And that beanie is still 40% off 🙂 .
We were ready for chili. I’m pretty sure we had chili for lunch every.single.day. It was just so good up there!
After lunch, we decided to walk back to downtown Aspen and see what was up.
Ashby found these earmuffs at a store…and we all knew she was meant to have them 🙂 .
Loving spending the first day of the year with this guy.
We stopped for hot chocolate…
…and I had something called a sticky chai latte…and it was divine.
Just a bunch of Shulls strolling Aspen.
Later that night, we had dinner at The Monarch Steakhouse…and it was our favorite meal of the trip!
Not the best pic…but I wanted you to see the fireplace behind us. We had a lovely table, great service and wonderful steak! We all had steak except for the two littles who split lobster carbonara instead. I sampled that, and it was delish too!
A cozy steak dinner hit the spot!
And one family pic before we called it a night.
The next morning, the boys headed off to snowboard again while we stayed inside and cuddled.
This girl slept in her earmuffs. Hahahahahaha!
At 11:00, I took the girls and we headed to Snowmass for lunch and tubing!! This was Madeley and Ashby’s first time on the gondola. They thought it was so much fun!
She was loving the gondola!
First stop, lunch at the top of the mountain.
This kid was having the best time ever!
We took the magic carpet up to the tubing spot.
There were four lanes of FUN!
Little Miss Madeley wasn’t tall enough to tube, so she played with me in the snow instead.
Here comes Smith!
Ashby did it a few times with Kensington and then decided playing in the snow sounded like more fun.
We had the best time outdoors with our crew!
Here comes Kensington!
Snow fun in-between tubing.
Ah! I love this picture so much!! My sweet girls 🙂 .
Later that night, we cleaned up and enjoyed our last night in Aspen at the Kitchen…
…ahhhh! It was a good day 🙂 .
After dinner, we headed back to our Airbnb, packed up and went to sleep…because the next day, we were heading to Breckenridge to meet up with the Slaughters! #yesyesyesyes
