Beaver Creek Summer Vacation 2013 part 6

Today was our last day in Beaver Creek. Sad, yet good. Sad because you never want vacation to end. Sad because we had such a good time that we don't want it to stop. Sad because it was nice to get away, relax, and have time off work. Yet, also good, because routine is good in life. Good because as good as vacation is, home is good too. Good because thankfully I have a job to go back to that I like. Ah, the cycle. 

This morning we played mini golf. How awesome is it to play mini golf with mountains in the background? Pretty awesome.

I picked baby blue (my favorite color).

On the first hole I got a hole in one. Sweet!

The first 9 holes went pretty well for me.

They had mini daisies on the course- my favorite!

Then I started to lose my game (not that I was ever good at golf).

Kley, Brett, Elizabeth, and I played.

In the end I took second. Kley beat me by one stroke. But it was still super fun.

Then we hit up Starbucks. We gave them some good business this week!

We had a little time left before we had to leave, so we decided to ride the gondola, and I am SO GLAD we did! It was awesome and beautiful. I actually liked it better than the other one we did, because I loved being in the open air. You could see so much more. The one we did in Vail was enclosed, so you couldn't see as much, and it was also quite hot inside. (Not to be a complainer- it was still great.)

We went up so high!

I know I've posted a ton of mountain pictures, but I can't get over how beautiful they are.

Here are some from the top.

I love them all. I wish you could have been there to see the real beauty.

Going back down. 

Then we headed to Denver! (We are flying out of Denver in the morning.)

First we met up with my old college roommate, Brittany. It was so good to see her and talk in person!

After that, Lauren and Stephen picked us up. We are staying with them for the night! Lauren and I have been friends since second grade. :)

We had a yummy dinner at a new restaurant called Ignite.

We sat on the rooftop deck, which was so cool, and we got to watch the lightning as a storm rolled in.

Kley and I.

Lauren and Stephen. We are so blessed to have you guys as friends and so glad we were able to see you!

We had a wonderful trip. Now headed to NW Iowa tomorrow for my cousin's wedding!
