Crisis in the Mile-High City

Post Christmas and New Years with the Barrands was a blast as well. We passed the New Year in the middle of a battle royal in Heroscape (our new favorite game). Kisses, bubbly, and Sudema stone-gazing Captain America. Now that's a New Years Celebration!

With the Barrand clan, we had so much fun playing Heroscape, eating foods, taking the family picture and visiting Aquariums. It was a wonderful chance for Brooklyn to meet her cousins again. She loved hanging out with Sam and Jensen and watched them move around and play.

The most exciting part of our Barrand family plans was our coveted trip to Costa Rica. I say coveted because as I write it, I know you are filled with insane jealousy. And rightly so! Well covet no more because it fell through! "How did it fall through?" you ask. Because of carelessness. We showed up at the airport for the red-eye flight on the 2nd of January, and our flight left at 12:10 am on the 2nd of January. We missed our flight by almost a full day! What losers.

Our fantastic holiday plans were shattered. I watched all that Univision for nothing! In our depression the following day, we rose from the ashes and pulled a last-minute vacation out of the air. So we will spend a few days in Breckenridge, enjoying the freezing cold, the snow, the slopes, and more Heroscape. It's better than nothing! And the good news is, we can still use our Costa Rica tickets sometime in the next year. So maybe we'll try again for next December.

What?!!! That's the saddest thing I've ever heard! OK, maybe not THE saddest-but pretty high up there.

I'm sorry you missed your trip (I was indeed feeling a bit jealous), but if it makes you feel better I laughed pretty hard at you missing your plane by 24 hrs. I'll have to tell Will as soon as he wakes up from his nap. By the way Brooklyn is adorable!

I can't believe it!! That's terrible. I bet the airline people who broke the news to you were laughing about it for days. Jerks!
But, I am glad that I am not that only one who didn't go to Costa Rica.
