How was your weekend, friends?! We had all kinds of running around and fun, and per usual, it was much too short! We did get some gorgeous sunny days, which makes today’s snowy post seem a little out of place. Last month I shared our trip to Jackson Hole, but realized I hadn’t yet reported on the rest of our Spring Break trip…a week in breathtaking Big Sky, Montana!
This trip was mostly about spending time with my family…which means a lot of couch-time, and not a lot of site seeing to report on! But I can report that Big Sky is stunning, grand, and quant…all at the same time. And as you may recall from our trip there last Summer, it’s a beautiful, outdoor playground all year round!
That said, if we don’t share DNA, you may want to skip this post! 😉 For those of you sticking around, I’ll give you a little family history.
I am my parents only child, and was raised as such for 15 years. #thatexplainsalot One of the silver-linings of their divorce, was the two
half-sisters and a half-brother that came from my dad’s second marriage. I loved those kids like they were my own when they were little, and now that they’re grown, I love being their friend and big sister.
Sidenote: Both my parents remarried amazing people that have enriched my life tenfold, and I even picked up two
step-brothers and a step-sister out of my mom’s second marriage! So if you’re counting, I’m an only child…but have 2 half-sisters, 1 half-brother, 2 step-brothers, and a step-sister. #bradybunch
My kids adore their aunts and uncles, and went crazy over their first experience with real snow (Texas snows don’t really count!). My siblings are all legit, serious skiers (my brother-in-law is even on the Snow Patrol), and patiently taught our kids to ski in less than an hour! It helped that we practically had the mountain to ourselves. #smalltownperks We spent the week sledding, laughing, eating, skiing, and lounging. It was perfect.
Where does she get her spunk?!? #daddysgirl
Isn’t my sister, Caroline, just the cutest?! She’s also tons of fun and wildly athletic! You can see for yourself by requesting her or her husband, Corry, for your weekend rafting trips at Geyser Whitewater Expedition.
I brought my sister this darling Navajo bag from Barrington…but of course had to model it before handing it over. #bloggerissues
Travel Tip: Thanks to new non-stop flights on American Airlines, it’s now easier to get to Bozeman! From there, rent a car and drive an hour through the canyon to Big Sky.
Thank you for indulging me today…this blog also serves as my own personal scrapbook, so I wanted to make sure this incredible trip stayed with us forever! I can’t thank my sister and brother-in-law enough for sharing their home, time and talents with us!! It was such a special week, and one we can’t wait to repeat next year! #hinthint
Amazing weather, small town, huge mountain, top-notch snow…Big Sky is the real deal, and has retained a true mountain ski town vibe. Have you been to Big Sky or Montana? Where’s your favorite family ski spot?
