Vars #2

We arrived at Vars on a Sunday evening and it began to snow, thankfully, after we made it up to the top of the mountain!  The Moreau’s had sleds and as soon as we got our belongings out of the van and into the hotel room the kids went straight outside for some sledding!

The children were so excited to be in the snow!  After a few sledding runs down the hill, we walked down through the village to look for some dinner!  While the kids were sledding Jack and I quickly remembered that he did not have snow pants.  We did not have a pair for him from the States because they were too small and the next size up was an 8/10. So, Monday morning I had to run to the village to find something in his size.  Because it is close to the end of the season, a lot of the stores did not have his size.  But, I got lucky and found a little boutique nestled at the end of the shopping village that had one pair of size 6 snow pants!  Hooray!!!

We found a few good restaurants while we were in Vars.  The kids like to take pictures of their food! :)

Because our hotel room only was equipped to sleep 5/6, Tristan stayed with the Moreau’s.  What is it about a hotel room that gets kids and adults so excited and happy?! My kids love to experience new sleeping accommodations and this was no exception!:)

Sophie made a new friend while we were in Vars!  We didn’t find out her name but we will call her the “lift” friend!  For three days the same sweet lady worked the bunny slope lift.  I watched her for hours as she helped and instructed beginner skiers.  She knew Sophie’s name within a few hours and Sophie had interaction with her every single time she went on the lift.  The day I skied, this lady was helping and encouraging me too.  By the time our trip was over, I realized she knew so much about our family and I didn’t even know her name!  How selfish of me to not get to know her as she was so quick to become acquainted with us!
