Day 8: Saturday, June 23, 2012
BreckSince much of Colorado is literally burning to the ground and the forecast for this weekend in Denver is over 100 degrees, we extended our rental car reservation and pointed it up to the mountain tops of beautiful Breckenridge. Cool weather, a massive outdoor sport culture, and plenty of fit, beautiful people greeted us. We were informed upon check in that the hotel has no air conditioning. Being from Florida we consider this blasphemy, and wondered if Lucifer himself owned the hotel. We would later find out that nobody in Breck has A/C and you actually don't need it in this little patch of heaven.
We sacked out, windows open, with views of the Rockies from our pillows.

All About Town
Near the base of our hike was the Rotary Snow Plow Park - some trains and a train museum made our little train lover very happy!
Finally, dinner at Twist - a twist on traditional comfort food - yum!
Yeah - those are pork shoulder tacos with mango salsa and goat cheese and garlic mac.

Breckenridge Fun Park
Once Mark's toes got too cold on the snow in his weird-ass toe shoes, we headed back down to town covered in dirt from head to toe. The boy's bath water was literally brown when we toweled them off, fed them room service grilled cheese, and put them to bed. Best day ever.

There's a Bear in the Cave
Max played hard and then sacked out right in the middle of the toddler section.
Andrew played "Pirate Doctor" in the "Ski Patrol Rescue Center" - here he's taking his pirate temperature:
