February vacation is the best! Our school district always takes the week after Presidents week off, as well as the Monday and Tuesday after that week (because of Town Meeting day). So, it's a nice long vacation. We have sort of alternated between staying here in Vermont for a "staycation" and traveling. This year, we went back to Mont Tremblant in Quebec, Canada for five days and stayed home for the rest of the vacation.
We managed to recruit three other families to join us this year. We were 15 and we had such a great time. We stayed right in the pedestrian village, making sure to have a kitchen, hot tub, and free breakfast every morning.

We managed to find a lot more snow, warm temperatures and corn snow conditions.

On the way home, we stopped by the Biodome in Montreal. The kids got to explore the rainforest, taiga, and tundra. Highlights were seeing the sloth, otters, and penguins.
We made it home on Friday and spent the rest of the week skiing, skating, jumping with friends, and relaxing.

It's never easy to get back into the groove of school/work, but we had a great vacation! Adventures with this family are getting more and more fun!
