The weekend after Ellie started school, we headed up to Frisco, Colorado. It is a ski resort city in the mountains and we scored a Living Social deal for a condo stay. It was a great family get away! Fresh mountain air and cooler temperatures were amazing to enjoy.
The first night we got there (about 2.5 hour drive) and went out to eat at a pizza place on the main street of Frisco. It was a long wait but the pizza was fantastic! We grabbed some ice cream from the grocery store and headed home. We were all kind of sick so it was an early night for us.
The next morning we got up and headed to nearby Silverthorne. We went to a park that overlooked Lake Dillon and it was beautiful! After playing at the park for a while we went to the nearby outlets in Silverthorne and walked around.
After the outlets shopping we decided it was warm enough to go swimming at the pool at the condo complex. I didn't take my camera with me but trust me that this was the highlight for the kids. We don't swim very often in Colorado!
Swimming was followed by cleaning up and then heading to the main street of Frisco to a free museum. They had a bunch of log cabins moved to one area that represented how life used to be in the area. The girls had fun trying on some costumes and checking things out. (* I did do Chloe's hair but she took it out so she looks like a little homeless child!)
We walked around and enjoyed the views and creek and the town. We had dinner at a Cajun restaurant (fabulous) and watched some glass blowing artist. Then it was back to the condo to watch a movie and relax some more.
