Spring Break – March 12th

Thanks to black-out shades, a humidifier, and our white-noise machine, we all slept like babies.

For breakfast, we dined at the Westbank Grill again. There were lots of available food choices, and we all walked away from our meals completely satisfied.

Afterwards, we drove to downtown Jackson to do some exploring.

We also made a stop at the official jackson Visitors Center to learn more about the area, to pick up some souvenir, and to view the Elk Refuge.

We also made the drive into Grand Teton National Park for a little bit of exploring.

Even though the majority of the Park is still closed for the winter, we still had fun taking in the sights.

The weather was very cold and very windy, so we were only able to endurable the elements for a short period of time.

Once we got back on the road, we made a quick stop at the Wildlife Art Museum to view some great Western art, including these great outdoor sculptures.

We ate lunch at The Spur in Teton Village. Our food was really good – I had an amazing pastrami sandwich that I am still dreaming about.

After lunch, I put George down for an afternoon nap, then tackled some work. After nap time, we all did a bit of relaxing in the room and then some exploring of Teton Village.

For dinner, we ate at Il Villaggio Osteria. We had an amazing meal of Italian fare, including pizza, homemade pasta, soup, and Nutella cheesecake. The food and the service were great, even in light of the fact that the restaurant was exceptionally busy.

On the walk back to the hotel, we stopped by the outdoor fire pits so that George could watch the snow plows work the mountains. George loves everything construction or machinery, so he had a ball.

Afterwards, it was bath and bedtime for John and G, and work time for me (this is crunch season for me!).
