|Family meal at a fancy restaurant|
We stayed at a fancy hotel in Girdwood and the first night we ate as a family at a really good Japanese restaurant. I was impressed with the kids behavior. It was family style seating all around a big table, and at first I was a little worried - 'what am I getting myself into with potentially fractious kids', I thought. And to begin with Stuey realized my fears when he started to pop edamame peas all over the place. But he calmed down and I think they both appreciated the good meal at a fancy hotel. They particularly like the fancy, artistic desserts.
Later we went to the swimming pool and then on to our room where everybody fell asleep quite quickly - A big, brightly lit Christmas tree just outside the window. The next day after a big breakfast it was time for ski lessons. Their cousin Zeke was there for lessons too. It was a 'cousin' lesson. Patrick
