We arrived at Avon, where Karen and her husband Jon live.  Avon is a suburb of Vail and is a beautiful town!

After dinner we walked down to the park to watch a “Dunk and Dash” race.  The contestants swam a course in the lake and then ran around it.  Guess who was one of the racers?  None other than Ryan Sutter from the Bachelorette.  Trista and the kids were there also.  Even though I don’t watch the show it was pretty cool to see them!

The next day we drove up to Beaver Creek, one of the many ski resorts in the area.

LOVED this statue. So cute! See the arrow?

And after driving around looking at all the multi-million dollar houses…

Just one of many beautiful homes in Vail

We went to a concert.  It was one of the “Hot Summer Nights” free concerts series that’s held every Tuesday night in Vail.  The group was called Great Big Sea, a folk rock group from Newfoundland.  They were great and we had another fun, fun night!
