We headed back inside for showers to get ready to go out to eat. We went to a steakhouse where you season and cook your own steaks on a large grill. It was a cool concept and the steaks were good, but if I'm going to pay $30+ for a steak it better be cooked to perfection and I am no professional chef lol. We ended the night with ice cream and candy from the local candy shop and headed to bed.
We found some new green runs the were awesome for Delainey including a little ski school area with tepees and forts you could ski through a t-bar lift the kids could be dragged on by themselves. She was in heaven!! Singing, yelling faster Daddy, trying to beat everyone, loving every minute of it! Until, we decided let's head back for lunch and on the way back, she fell and bit her lip. All she wanted was Mom, blood was all in her mouth, it was so sad. Dave carried her home where we ate lunch and she calmed down some. I was positive she was going to be done skiing for the day, but when I asked her if she wanted to go back to that fun area she said yes and that's just what she did. She skied a few more runs after lunch and called it a day. I went and picked up D and we had some quiet time before everyone came back at 4.
That night we had a date night with Emily & Will at a delicious restaurant called Laundry. It was all small plates of food you shared and it was heaven. Voted #1 restaurant in Steamboat. After dinner we went to a pub where a live band was playing and headed home around 11:30 to go to sleep. (We are old!)
Sunday morning we packed up, headed back to Denver in the van, and then flew home. Blakely got a stomach bug and threw up on the car ride so that made things interesting, but overall we all made it back in one piece and were so exhausted and ready to go to sleep by the time we got home a 12:30 am.
Monday was spent doing literally 9 loads of laundry, playing with our toys we missed, and bedtimes at 7 pm. It was all worth it though. Glad we could keep the annual ski trip tradition alive! Can't wait for next year!!! Here are a few professional pics to leave you with!
