We loved our trip to Vail so much last summer, we did a repeat! And celebrated a 21st birthday at the same time... We were not disappointed!

Vail Village is as charming as ever...






I loved my morning walks by the gorgeous homes...





Check it out. We spotted a Momma Moose and her two babies! We watched in awe as they casually crossed the driveway. By the time I remembered my camera, I missed the Momma Moose, but I got the babies! Pretty amazing.
 










This is my favorite house to walk by... LOOK at the painted details! 











The Four Seasons...

The Sonnenalp...

Me attempting to photograph a hummingbird.



We stayed at the Solaris and oved it ~ the location is perfect!

Our little buddy who worked in a shop next to the Solaris...


Him got a stick.

The view from the Solaris...

We hiked Booth Falls ~ a beautiful hike and great workout...
The wildflowers made me feel like Maria from The Sound of Music...




Beautiful weather, gorgeous scenery, delicious food... the perfect recipe for a fantastic family vacation!

Wow this is gorgeous! I'd love to visit, where is it? OMG that Boston Terrier is so cute. I have a Frenchie and he kind of looks like him. P.S. I'm having a giveaway for a vintage inspired handmade clutch!

I love Colorado and Vail is awesome! It looks like you had a marvelous adventure. Haha, I think I would have been following those baby Moose, a safe distance and gotten momma too. In all of our travels West, I am still waiting to view and photograph a Moose. Stop by my blog and be sure to comment too~
