We take one big “ski vacation” every winter, in addition to the multiple day trips we make to the slopes. This year, we decided to venture a little farther away and went to Steamboat Springs. We had come up here last year for an overnight yurt adventure, that required some cross-country skiing. But we had never been to the downhill slopes here.
Unfortunately, the trip was right on the heels of our trip to Florida (we had less than a 48-hour turn around time.) Owen got sick literally as soon as we got home, and after assuming it was just a cold… but watching it get worse… I finally took him to the doctor on the morning of the day we were leaving. Turns out the poor kid had Influenza B!
