Brrrr…. this Florida girl just ain’t cut out for this! ;)

We did have plan on driving to Beaver Creek for our last day, but when we awoke to a heavy snowfall we knew the drive to Beaver Creek would be no fun at all. Instead we enjoyed a lazy snowy day at Breckenridge.

Before we layered up and headed out, we made sure to enjoy a leisurely breakfast of pancakes.

Derek was on pancake flipping duty again and did another fabulous job.

I topped my pancakes with vanilla yogurt and fresh mango.

On the side I had a sausage patty.

I was impressed. :)

The morning started off verrrrryyyyy cold.

My brothers and Dad went to the top of the mountain, while Kelly, Derek and I took our time on peak 7.

After a couple of runs we couldn’t take it anymore and headed inside for some HOT drinks.

My toes were sooo cold in my boots, they needed to defrost on the outside. :)

Eventually the boys joined us, frozen beard and all. lol

We had packed our lunches again today, but after oggling all the bread bowls filled with chili and soup our cold lunches failed in comparison. So, we caved and treated ourselves to a hot meal.

Derek and I shared a chili filled bread bowl.

Sooo worth the $12.95. ;) The spicy chili heated me right up!

I actually had to cool my mouth down with the pear I had packed for my original lunch.

We attempted to ski more after lunch, but after a few runs I was done for the week. I was tired, cold, and cranky. I also miss the humidity. :(

We stopped at the top for a final hot chocolate.

The boys weren’t quite finished, so they headed to the top one final time while I caught up on my google reader

and enjoyed the closest thing to chocolate Kelly could provide me with.

After a week of avoiding the t-bar, Derek finally believe he was ready to join the big boys club.

My brother and Dad took Derek to the top and I am happy to say he survived! Woo hoo!!! I’m so proud of my little ski bunny. :)

We said our good byes to the mountain and headed back to the car for one last run.

On the way home we made a friend.

I had the last piece of cake with some vanilla yogurt for dessert.

We are heading out early tomorrow to catch our flight home.

As much as I love Colorado I miss Florida’s warmth and humidity. I also miss Maddie! I know Maddie is having a ball with her dog sitter, but I miss cuddling with my baby!
