Spring Break is a wonderful time of year. It's near the end of the ski season and spring is in the air. Ever since I split with Abbie and Jack's Mom (5 years ago), she's taken the kids to West Palm Beach (Florida) for Spring Break. Their Grandma is a teacher and she has the time off, so it's always worked out well.
This year, I decided to change things up a bit and plan my own Spring Break vacation. In true "Matt and Trish" style, we didn't just plan a trip to an exotic location for a week, we planned a trip to several exotic locations. We started off by taking the kids to the mountains over the weekend and treating them to a fancy dinner at Devil's Thumb Ranch. This trip was mostly to get our skis for this week's trip.
Yesterday, we drove back to Denver, dropped the kids off at their Mom's (they're flying to Florida today) and continued on to Crested Butte (a.k.a. "the last great Colorado ski town"). In Crested Butte, I'm signed up for the Java Posse Roundup. We're here for the week to enjoy the conference, the beautiful weather and the great town of Crested Butte. I'm sure we'll figure out a way to get some Spring Skiing in along the way. We're staying at The Ruby of Crested Butte, which turns out to be the nicest Bed & Breakfast I've ever stayed in (thanks for the recommendation James!).
This Friday, we'll be heading to another adventure with the kids and both Trish and my parents. I'll make sure and write about our journey when we return. In the meantime, I've discovered the kids only have 1 week off for spring break, not 2 weeks. So I guess I'm to blame for them playing hookie on a boat when they should be in school. Oh well, they don't look too upset, do they?
