A Trip Up Emerald and I Need a Nap

on February 7, 2018

Hey there, friends! How is your hump day going?? Doing anything fun today?

Our morning started at 5 with the sound of the alarm clock and a side of the coffee dripping in the machine (Thank goodness for pre-set coffee…am I right?!). It took a little effort, but we rolled out of bed and headed for the basement. Ken did an hour on the trainer and I opted for 45 minutes of riding and 15 minutes of weights. When we were finished, it was pancakes for everyone….and a second cup of coffee!).

The rest of the morning went by in a blur of cleaning up and packing for our trip to town. First stop, grocery store! Loaded up on all the goodies (We have 2 Rtic coolers and they are the bomb.com-I buy ice cream every week BEFORE ski lessons and the drive home!).

Once we had everything loaded, we stopped by the gas station to fill up a couple of cans for Ken’s snowmobile. That gave Brooke a chance to finish her snack before getting to Howelsen and getting dressed for skiing! She opted to do the second session and we are all pretty happy about that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

While she shredded the slopes, Jasper and I ran over to the other side of Emerald to do some exploring. It was supposed to be an easy 3 mile day, but how do you do that if you have an hour to yourself?!

Naturally I wore way too many clothes and it was a sweatfest, but I needed pockets and succumbed to the vest. Next time, fanny pack ๐Ÿ˜‰

One happy dog.

It was well worth the views.

We ended up with 6 miles total before meeting up the Brooke. Profile looked like this…

Jasper loves his day to run with Mom ๐Ÿ˜‰

Quick drive home and unloading of groceries and everyone was feeling like this….

Except Brooke who never runs out of energy. She played with all her toys before agreeing to take a break to take a bath (and give me a break!).

I am currently trying to not fall asleep on the keyboard. Maybe Brooke will put me to bed tonight???

Hope you had a wonderful day!! Here is to early bedtimes!!
