Excited for a Spring Break Vacation.....

Our plans have been made and we are so excited to be going on a REAL Spring Break vacation this year.  Some friends of ours invited us to go with them toooooooo.........
(pictures courtesy of www.ski-wallpapers.com)
Angel Fire, New Mexico!!!!!  They have some family that live there (so they go each year) and one of their family's friends has a furnished house that we will get to use for free.  Did you hear that FREE...woohoo.   Also, the year that your child is in 5th grade their ski lift tickets (at Angel Fire resort) are FREE....yep just show a report card and all of their skiing is free.  Lexi is SOOOOO excited.  She has never been snow skiing or anywhere like this.  I am just excited to get away for a relaxing, fun vacation.   We will leave March 13th and probably come back on the 19th.  Are any of you going to be there then???  If so, let me know.....I want to meet you.

Have tons of fun, Darlene!!! We made some of the best memories last year when we went to Vail for Spring Break. If you or Lexi have never skied before, I highly recommend taking lessons. I, finally, mastered the bunny slope after a day or two! LOL

jeanne said...

Wow, you are going skiing. I have one very important thing to say. TAKE LESSONS. I am so happy for you all. I will say this, kids seem to learn so quickly. Remember I was 40 the first time I skied. Lessons were so important because I was scared to death. However, it was the most fun I have ever had. Go for it!!!
I can't wait to hear all about it Darlene. Free...a lovely word huh?

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

What a cool cool way to spend break! I'll be in snow too, but all the way over here on the east coast! That's so interesting the resort decided 5th grade is free. So perfect for Lexi, but I'm so curious as to why not 4th grade or 6th? Maybe you'll luck out and next year they'll change it to 6th ;)
Have a blast!

Shelia said...

Hi Darlene! Oh, I'm so happy for you! What a wonderful deal! We used to live in Roswell, New Mexico and Mr. Precious and our kids would go to Ruidoso and ski. I would just look at the snow. I never did get on those skies! Have so much fun.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kimberly said...

What fun! Caroline loves to ski. I know Lexi will too. Me, not so much. LOL. You'll have a great time. Enjoy and take lots of pictures. We are going to Arizona and I am super excited.

Christina said...

Free is fabulous! Sounds like a wonderful time. Friends, family and skiing. I've never been skiing. I went on ski trips but never skied. My dad wouldn't let us ski when we were teens because we all played varsity basketball and he was afraid we would break something. : ) It may be to late to try now.

Rambling Girl said...

Oh how much fun this will be and staying free sounds even better! Have fun and I am sure you will have lots of pics to share when you get back.
