雪山旅行も今日で終わり。朝からゲレンデ組(Dさん、Aちゃん、ドラゴン)と片付け組に分かれて大忙しです。喧噪の中、ドラゴンが昨日食べ損なったケーキに自分でろうそくを立てました。ただ食べるのはお預け。大急ぎでゲレンデに向けて出発しました。マンションのチェックアウトは11時。相変わらずかんしゃくを起こす舞姫、薬の副作用でぐったり気味のMちゃんを準備させながらの片付けは、目が回るようでした。(@o@)/

ゲレンデに行ってみてびっくり。なんとドラゴンがかなり上達してる! 中級コースもへっちゃらになって、ニコニコしながら降りてきます。しかも速いのなんの。「これよこれ。母はこれを見るためにひたすら頑張ったんだよ!」来てよかったと思った瞬間でした。

お弁当とケーキを食べて、2時過ぎにゲレンデを後にしましたが、二人の子供がこれで帰るわけがありません。やっていないことがありました。そう、そり遊びです! ベア・バレー村に戻って適当な場所を見つけました。Mちゃんは車の中で眠ってしまい、舞姫は車椅子に座ってご機嫌。その間、大人も童心に帰ってそり遊びです。近くの犬がいきなり乱入してきて、雪だるまの口に使っていた棒切れを取り上げてしまうという面白いハプニングもありました。

ようやく解散したのは夕方4時頃。いやいや、いろいろとあり過ぎた今回の旅行でしたが、最後はみんな揃ったし、お天気には恵まれたし、言うことはありません!味をしめたスキー・スノボー4人組は、今週末、再び日帰りで行くことが決定。今シーズンの有終の美を飾ります(^o^)/。

そうそう、例のマンション、実は売りに出ていて、泊まった日から90日以内に買ったら今回の賃料を戻してくれるとのこと。あんなシックハウス、誰が買うかい!(終わり)

The last day of the trip.  We were busy from the morning, dividing ourselves into the snow sporting team (D-san, A-chan & dragon) and the cleaning-up team.  In the midst of the haste, dragon lit the candles on the cake that he could not eat the night before.  The eating part had to wait, though.  The three left for the resort, wasting no time.  The check-out time of the condominium was 11am.  Having princess who was still throwing tantrums and M-chan who wasn’t active at all due to the medication, it made me almost dizzy to get ready to go. (@o@)/
 
At the resort, I was so amazed that dragon had improved in snowboarding so much!  He was already comfortable coming down one of the  intermediate courses.  He was coming down with a big smile on his face.  Not only that, he was so fast!!  “This is it!  This is what I worked so hard to see!”   It was the moment when I was so glad to come this far.
 
We ate our homemade lunch and the cake, then left the resort around 2 pm.  But there was one thing we hadn’t done yet.  The two kids of course wouldn’t go home without doing this, yes, sledding.  We went back to Bear Valley Village and found a good spot.  While M-chan was taking a nap in the car and princess was in a good mood in her wheelchair, the adults had a great fun just like kids, too.  There was a funny interruption.  A neighbor’s dog broke in, dashed to the snowman and took away the stick that had been used to make its mouth.
 
It was around 4 pm when we were finally on our way home.  Although there were so many, no, too many happenings, all of us were able to join at the end and the weather was perfect.  What more could be expected!!  Getting a taste of the fun, the snow sporting team of four are going again this weekend for a day  marking the last hurrah of the season. (^o^)/
 
By the way, it turned out the condominium was for sale.  According to the catch, if you bought the property within 90 days of your stay, the rent would be returned to you.  Nobody wants to buy such a sick house??!! (The end)
