Crystal Mountain

The Cox Family spent the weekend at Crystal Mountain! This trip was a Christmas gift for the family from Ryan's mom and dad, two of the most generous and incredible people on the planet.
The men spent their days on the slopes - enjoying sleeting rain most of the day Friday, which helped them accomplish high speeds on the runs. They had such great attitudes... or maybe they just really love to ski. Saturday they were surprised to discover it was Mardi Gras on the Mountain day. Ruby got some beads from her uncle Chris and uncle Kyle. Of course, she was thrilled beyond measure at more necklaces in her life.
The ladies enjoyed a couple of mornings at the Crystal Spa while Ruby hung out with a bunch of kids at Adventure Care. I got a "mommy-to-be" massage on Friday and a glorious express facial on Saturday. I've never been so pampered - and my skin has never looked so good! Unfortunately, cameras were not allowed in the tranquil spa atmosphere, so I couldn't document Momo, Sarah and I hanging out in the lounge by the fireplace while sipping cucumber and mint water and listening to relaxing jazzy spa music. You'll have to imagine us sitting in the picture below.
We had delicious dinners both nights as well as some serious games of dominos and nertz. I am so thankful for the time spent as a family.
After dinner Saturday night Ruby got her wish and her Aunt Sarah and I took her to the swimming pool. Please excuse pictures my 30-week pregnant self in my swimming suit... its good documentation of baby #2 in the womb.
All in all it was such an incredibly wonderful weekend together. Thanks so much Daddo and Momo!
