We arrived around 7pm and there were 2 deer waiting for us! the kids were so excited they were jumping around the room. We took them to the indoor pool to get some energy out. Finally they crashed. David and I didn’t sleep two well – we were waiting for one of them to fall of the bed, around 2am Tyler did. The kid slept right thru it – David picked him up sleeping off the floor and put him back into bed. They wanted to know if we could sleep in hotels more often!
We took the kids to the muffin patch for
It was still rather brisk about 45degrees, so we decided to do the train in the morning. we would be inside the car and its heated. We were hoping to go south to otter lake but the 10am train goes to carter station. As we were waiting the conductor came over and said he couldn’t get the heat working so dress warm! lol
The kids had fun, they saw deer and turkeys, even some kayakers! The views were nice as the leaves are starting to turn!
After the train we headed over to McCauley Mountain for the scenic chair lift. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go. I have a fear of heights, Tyler gets nervous up high; David and Emma have no fear. On the way up David took Tyler first, I was stuck with Emma.
She had no fear. She was moving all around trying to look behind us, and then under us. I could feel the chair swinging – I was freaking out inside. This is why I don’t ski, okay its only 1 reason why I don’t ski! How do you keep a 2 year old still when your body is paralyzed by fear? after a few minutes I started to relax (till the way down!lol)
It was so worth the ride to see the views.
Tyler was so funny on the way down (yeah I made David take Emma) he says look mom – look at that lake. if we didn’t go up this mountain we would of never known it was there! He was looking at 1st lake!!
After that we had lunch and walked around the village. We sat at the coffee shop and watched the firemen’s parade. The kids received fire hats and tons of candy. After that we headed south but we took a fast detour to the Buffalohead for dinner!!
It was a great trip that like all others, went too fast.
