E was very excited about her artwork being chosen and we were all so proud of her. What a fun experience for E and one that I am sure she will remember forever.
Tonight, Grandma, Jane, Aimee and I escorted E to the art show so we could check out her items. It was fun to see what other art kids have done and to celebrate with E on her success. She can't wait to take Jon over there tomorrow night to show him her art.

The kids all enjoyed the scenery and it was fun to hang out the five of us in Denver and then on the drive. We got to Steamboat right after it started to snow so the last half hour of our drive was a little scary on the pass but we made it just fine.
We stayed at the same house again with Grandma and Grandpa A and Uncle T. The first night we went out for dinner to the pizza place and then headed back for hot tub and cards.
The first day of skiing, the girls were in ski school and k took a snowboarding lesson. They all had a great time. Uncle T, Grandpa A, Jon and I hit the slopes. We skied hard that first day and covered a lot of ground. It was great and when we picked the kids up at ski school, they were ready to head back up to the top to do some skiing with us. It was fun. K had a good time snowboarding but we decided to put him back on skis for the remainder of our trip so he could "keep" up with the rest of us.
The next two days were filled with lots of fun skiing. The kids LOVED to go through the trees and aside from a few run In's everyone had a great time. Both Jon and I are impressed with how well they are skiing now. We have decided that pretty soon we will have a hard time keeping up with them.
Over all it was a wonderful trip. So relaxing with skiing during the day and hot tubing and playing cards at night. It is never easy to leave Steamboat after our vacation there.
It was a successful vacation and one that we all enjoyed so much! We are already looking forward to 2014!
