What to do with Family in Colorado Springs

On the last day of our trip in Colorado Springs, we packed in the activities from The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to the Cave of the Winds. I was sad to go home, but ready to have some time with people my age.

A Family Trip to Denver

It is tough being a parent in many ways but what I find most difficult is encorporating music, dance and language classes into their busy life of academics and sports. So when Axel expressed an interest in hip hop lessons, I jumped all over it and included a visit to a Hip Hop Festival into our agenda on our trip. Our stay in Denver revolved around an elusive Hip Hop Festival that was taking place. I didn't know how it was going to pan out but I am so happy I persevered and took the boys to the Showcase Festival that occurred last night in a nearby Tavern.

Spring Break with Kids in Denver

Spring Break with Kids in Denver

When one thinks of spring break in Aspen, images of families smiling on the ski slopes comes to mind. For me? Not so much. The reality is that the idea of getting out of the snow was far more appealing, so off we went to Denver.

The Little Nell Hotel & Residences in Aspen

The Little Nell Hotel & Residences in Aspen

The Little Nell Hotel personifies my belief that Aspen should be known not for its glitz and glamor but for its elegant and sporty visitors. Not that the glitz and glamor doesnt exist, it just doesnt prevail. One only has to enjoy a stay at Aspens top, five star, ski-in, ski-out hotel, as I did with my family this past Friday over Winterskol, to catch a glimpse of what Im talking about.
