There's a place we come back to every summer (see other posts HERE and HERE), so that it's thick in our memories and part of our family now. It's tucked away in these mountains, not far from where I grew up.
And yes we're a bit goofy, but we have all these traditions attached to this place that we love: Vail, CO.
Before we made the trek to our resort, we spent a night with my old neighbors and our dear friends, the Covert family. They lived across the street during my grade school years, and have always been family to us.
But not before a few splashes in the frigid waters. They were shockingly cold.
And the kids were giddy.
We arrived at our favorite resort, Manor Vail Lodge. We love this place for its spacious rooms and fantastic location near Vail's best parks, in Vail Village proper.
I love Vail for its flowers.
Until next year, Vail!
