Eli and Mort’s Number 1 Fan – Zander
Eli and Mort’s Number 1 Fan – Zander

We are busy checking out all of the cool stuff for kids in Breckenridge. Mort and I spend a lot of time Googling. One place we DEFINITELY can’t wait to see is the Haunted Forest in Breckenridge next winter! We hear there is a GIANT spider and lots of crazy stuff to see.


Since we are in-between adventures we thought we would tell you some stories about our last visit to Beaver Creek. Here is one.

Just a few weeks ago we met with our number 1 fan,  Zander.

Zander had come to see us at 2015 with his Mom, but Mort just missed him. Mort was so upset we promised Zander’s Mom that we would come to Zander’s school the next day.

We showed up to surprise Zander the next morning at Mountain Montessori. Yahoo!  It was so fun. Mort and I took a lot of pictures and signed Zander’s book.


We wanted to say thank you to Zander and his class for being so nice to Mort and me.  So THANK YOU Mountain Montessori!  We can’t wait to come visit again.

Whew.  Our friends,  were working REALLY hard today on their illustrations at the Alpine Arts Center with Lauren.

Lauren was AWESOME!  She had this way of making things come out of the kids brains that seemed like magic.  Then they put the things that came out of their heads on paper.  The illustrations for Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures, Vail looked amazing.  And they were just getting started. Booyah!

Mort and I decided to stay out of the way.

I did think about going in there but… then I thought about that fact that every time I walk into the kitchen while my stepmom and Dad are cooking they ask me and Mort to set the table.  I thought the same might be true for drawing.  I can’t draw very well. Neither can Mort.

We took some sweet pictures of the illustrators at the Alpine Arts Center with Lauren from the other side of the room.

I can’t want to see the illustrations when our friends are finished. Neither can Mort. Check out Lauren and the team of Illustrators hard at work.
