Vail - Day 2

Day 2 started early.  No one slept particularly well so we were all up early.  As usual, it took a while to get everyone dressed in all the ski gear, especially the boots.  I had to go with Will and David to take the kids to ski school since I was taking a lesson, too.  We crammed ourselves into the car and headed to Lionshead Village.

Olivia didn't mind being dropped off for ski school with her instructor, Geo, although he wasn't as young or as cute at Andrew, her instructor last year.

By the end of the day when I met up with everyone, Olivia was GROUCHY!!  She didn't have the best first day of ski school this year.  Aside from the fact that Geo was not Andrew, her group never left the 'bottom' of the mountain, the bunny slope.  So, she was completely bored.  And, to top it off, some kid fell asleep and took about 30 minutes to get back on the slopes after lunch.

The bus ride home is always fun.  On the way from the bus stop to the house, we stopped to make some snow angels.  Olivia had perked up a little bit by this point, or at least she thought it was pretty funny that I couldn't get up out of the snow and some had dripped down the back of my jacket.

The hot tub is a good antidote to any grouchy children.  Please note that Andrew and McIver are in the same picture and both relatively happy.  For some reason, they just push each other's buttons like nobody's business.

McIver was pretty worn out after his full day of ski school.  He convinced Peg to give him throat lozenges, three blankets and some headphones.  He was cozy and comfy... and in bed about 10 minutes after this picture was taken.
