Our trip to Vail was absolutely super. I think it was the best one yet. The weather and the snow were beautiful, the food was delicious (understatement), and Uncle’s house as cosy as ever. It was lovely to come in after a good day on the slopes and hop into the hot tub, then prepare dinner together and finish off the night with brownies, ice cream and olympics. On our way to the airport, we took our aunt to Gunther Toody’s, which is tradition.
