But the kids are getting along great and Tate, Kari and Lee's oldest son, has been so helpful with the little ones. I think they prefer to all 3 walk together rather than riding separately.
This morning's views from the mountain between Telluride and Mountain Village were spectacular and were not the slightest bit affected by the light drizzle.
A trail closure extended our hike a bit but that just gave us more time to enjoy the scenery. We were all starving by the time we got back to Mountain Village but the sun had come out so we got to have a leisurely lunch at Tomboy Tavern. Tomboy Tavern is one of Mountain Village's most popular restaurants and their giant yellow outdoor umbrella clad patio is still the to be scene place apres ski. Though during the summer it seemed totally appropriate for 3 tired, hungry kids and 4 thirsty adults!
After a relaxing afternoon, we headed out to dinner with plans to try the Thai place, Siam Thai. Given that we had 7 people it was quite a lengthy wait and when I took Maison inside to go potty it was so hot in there I wanted to faint. We decided to try a restaurant across the street called There. The good news was that they had a table available. The bad news was that it was big enough for about 3 people (if you go to their website and click "The Place" and scroll down you can see the small table in the window on the right). We were so crowded that at one point Kari told Tate that if he didn't stop touching her she was going to have a panic attack! I was right there with her. It was very hot in there and very crowded but considering they had delicious food and an available table we were just happy to be THERE!
