B.C. Vacation - Day 3

Boys slept until 8:30 a.m. -- this could have been the latest ever. Made breakfast, then headed back to the mountain and took the gondola up to the top. We wanted to go to the peak, but H & C still are not themselves. It's an open chair lift, and we didn't want to risk it. Still, the view was amazing. It was sunny and warm -- pretty much perfect. This is our second time here (Brian's 8th, or something like that), and I just am amazed how absolutely gorgeous it is. We took the gondola back down to the half way point, and got out to watch the beginning of the Canadian Downhill event. Actually ended up going down to a rock face to watch them, and joined some British blokes in cheering them on. It's amazing how fast and crazy these guys ride! Made dinner at the condo, hopped in the hot tub and crashed.

(When traveling with kids, condos are the way to go, and usually how we travel. In fact, when we showed up to the Vancouver hotel -- which actually cost more than our lux condo -- H announced that the room was too small to have fun. Spoiled? But really, you usually spend the same amount, but have laundry and a kitchen. It just makes it feel like home).
