Skiing at Beaver Creek

Right after Christmas we traveled to Beaver Creek, Colorado to
ski with some of the Tindall family!  Mark's sister, Tif, and her family met 
us there along with Mark's Dad!  We had so much fun and, as always,
the week flew by way too fast!

The Ryan family (Rob, Tif, Dylan, Rachel & Jack) with the Tindalls (Mark, Jen, Tatum & Talia)
Taizley was on the ski school mountain

The girls skied great - they have really improved since March!

Mark, Jen, Rob & Tif

Taizley loved her ski school!

Dinner at Beano's Cabin - beautiful place

Rachel, Tatum and Jack

We took an open sleigh ride up to Beano's cabin for dinner.  It was gorgeous up there, but none of us
had dressed warm enough to be in an open sleigh at night!  The kids were warming up at the fireplace!

The next day, we decided to ski to Beano's Cabin and check out the view during the daylight!
Mark & Rob

Jen & Mark - the skiing was amazing!

The girls found the kind of dog they wanted while we were shopping in the village

Taizley had Christmas money to spend from Papa & Nannie, so she picked out two beavers!
  Then she saw the large beaver and wanted that one instead!

Shopping Day

I love this picture!  Mark, Tif and Papa were going to pose for a picture - Tif had put her ski up and Papa
thought he would do the same!  This is how it ended up - they were laughing so hard!

Here is the picture after they got up - no skis in the air this time!

Papa with his grandbabies!  Still missing the three in North Carolina!

Skiing at Beaver Creek Part II

 Thought this picture was cute!  On our way to Colorado - Taizley was snug with 
her blankie and new seat pet!

Getting ready for ski school! 

Taizley at ski school - she could not stop looking at us and smiling!  She was having a blast! 

I think she is showing off for us! 

She was making us laugh - she was watching us the entire time! 

Even watched us from the magic carpet! 

Here she was waving at Mark & I 

She did great skiing down! 

 Too cute!

Here's the Pepsi boys!  Jack and Mark 

All the kids wanted to go on the bungee trampoline - so one evening
after the ski slopes closed, we took them! 

Taizley with Dylan (Dylan was doing flips!) 

Taizley thought it was so much fun!  She loved it! 

Tatum on the left, Rachel in the middle, and Talia on the right

They all had a blast!! 

New Year's Eve Skiing (Mark & Jen)

A little New Year's Eve kiss on the slopes!

Dinner at Wolfgang Puck's Restaurant - Spago 

 New Year's Eve toast - the kids thought it was so cool that they had sparkling apple cider! 

Happy New Year!! 

Last stop was at Casa Bonita in Denver on the way home - it has definately become a tradition
for us as it was for the Barth family growing up!

The girls love watching the cliff divers and the shows 

 What a fun ending to a great trip and a wonderful year!!
