Mountain Vacation - Part 2

Vail was great! Highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s. A nice break in the 100 degree temps back in Texas. We spent the day relaxing and enjoying Vail. We stayed in an awesome condo on a recommendation from a friend. We were just steps away from Vail Village and had a beautiful mountain stream off our back deck. Geoff's parents (aka Mama and Papa) stopped in for lunch as they were driving through on their way to Grand Junction.

In the Betty Ford Botanical Garden right behind our condo.

The gils pointing out their favorites.

We spotted this in the flowers at the garden.

Vail had all kinds of neat parks for the girls to play.

There was even a huge pirate ship to play on.
We met a nice couple at a different playground that evening and their 2 year old son Henry. The girls played with him a while. The husband was from Dallas - they had been living in Vail for 7 years. They recommended a great pizza place for dinner - which is where these silly people took this picture.

End of Day 2 - more to come soon.

Looks like a fun trip! Not sure I would have stayed near the snake long enough to snap a picture.
