Tim and I went to Breckenridge to celebrate our anniversary, while the kids had a grand time at Nanny & Papa's house. It's actually up for debate as to who had more fun.
Within minutes of arriving in Breck, we hit our favorite ice cream shop. The Mexican chocolate was amazing!
This was the view from the lodge we stayed in, which was the same place we spent the first night of our honeymoon.
The next day we biked 40 miles on our favorite Colorado trail - from Breckenridge to Vail Pass. There is some of the most beautiful Colorado scenery on this route, and much of it you can't see unless you are on the trail.
We had dinner at one of our favorite Breck restaurants - The Dredge. It is a floating restaurant on the Blue River. The views and the food are outstanding!
We loved sitting on Main Street - people watching and enjoying the views and gorgeous summer weather.
Breakfast on the deck was definitely a highlight!
Another highlight was getting a couple's massage after our 5 hour bike excursion. We were so sore but hadn't thought ahead to schedule massages. Once we got back to the lodge we went to the spa to see when we could get in. The gal asked me when we wanted to be seen, and I half-jokingly said, "Now." Fortunately, she had a break in her schedule right then and was able to get us both in! I know that saved us a lot of painful muscles the following day.
Breckenridge is such a fun place to be on the 4th of July weekend, which is why we've spent 4 of our 13 anniversaries there. This is the first time since having kids that we've taken an anniversary trip alone. Tim and I both agreed this was one of our most memorable anniversary trips yet.
