Puckettpalooza 08

Hey guys! We made it back from our world wind tour or what I like to call “Puckettpalooza ‘08”. No autographs please. I am exhausted and I seriously need a break from vacationing. Weird, huh? Anyway, MP and I went snow skiing for the first time in my life and it was awesome! We went with 2 of our VBFF, Chris and Missy McMinn – CHILDFREE FOR 5 DAYS, BABY! We decided to go to Copper Mountain Resort in Dillon, CO. The McMinns had been there before and loved it and MP has been snow skiing before, so he didn’t really care where we went, he was just stoked to go. I was a little apprehensive and 100% positive that I would hate it because 1) I don’t like to be cold and 2) I’m 4 months pregnant, yo. We flew into Denver on a Saturday and drove to Ft. Collins to stay the night with MP’s sister, Darla, and her family. They were great hosts! There’s a place in Ft Collins called Olde Towne. It’s THE coolest place on the planet and we had a blast. Darla, Missy and I found ourselves dancing to a reggae band called 21/21 Cricket in the middle of the street with about 50 other people, while MP, Victor, Chris and our nephews, Brenden and Brooks walked around town. Afterwards we ate dinner and headed back to the house for a rousing Wii tournament. I decided right then, I MUST own a Wii. So, the next morning we loaded up and the 4 of us headed to Copper Mountain, where upon signing in, Missy and I headed to ski school. Not so much to learn to ski like an Olympian, but mainly to learn to fall properly without breaking anything. Our instructor was great and our class was small so we really had one-on-one training, which was great. Marty and Chris didn’t need ski school for their mad mountain skillz rival that of Shawn “The Flying Tomato” White. Pretty soon Missy was right up there with them too! She was great!! I decided to keep it short and only skied until lunch each day (on the beginner slopes!) and rested in the afternoons! So we got home late Wednesday night and on Saturday, AM, MP and I flew out again, but this time for Columbus, OH leg of the tour….. This saga will continue……

I will post ski pictures later. I am a boob and brought my camera to work with said pics on it. Well, instead of copying from the camera, I cut. Which wouldn’t have been a big deal, EXCEPT I accidentally downloaded them in the “Administrator” portion of “My Computer” and now I can’t retrieve them, because I don’t have access to that. And because I’d CUT them, they are no longer on my camera! Fortunately, Marty put them on his laptop as soon as we got home….. He’s my photo hero, is what he is!
