Barbara's Visit and the Off Season

Jay's mom got a great deal on a round trip flight to visit us while the kids were on spring break. It is a challenge to find something to do during the off season, but it snowed and snowed for the first two days Barbara was here, so she spent a lot of time with the kids inside playing games. I took the first two pictures with Barbara's camera when we walked around in Mt. Village after the snow stopped and it started to warm up.
Barbara took this one of us in front of the new ice skating area at the new Capella hotel.
Jay still didn't have skiing out of his system, so Barbara and I dropped him off in Mt. Village one afternoon and Jay hiked for awhile and then skied back down into Telluride.
The much-needed water line replacement is going on in Telluride right now, so Main Street is a mess.
This is something you don't see everyday, but still not a bad view!

Beautiful shots of the town and family with mountains in the background. Hope they finish the road work soon. That doesn't look like fun.

Hi Lisa,
Great photos of springtime in Telluride. Looks as though snow has melted in the town. Jay needs to get that ski bug out of his system - otherwise, it's just going to keep on snowing!

Enjoyed this series of pictures. Nice memory makers.

Okay, for those of us in the Eastern half of the country, there's something so wrong about skiing in shorts. I have enough trouble with going to the hockey rink in shorts. Just don't seem natcheral. Beautiful town though. Road work and all.

Such wonderful family photos. The second one makes everyone look so small. Those mountains are just breathtaking!

I suppose the construction/road projects start before tourist season so it'll be all done by then, eh? :)

It'll be nice to have new waterlines. Butte replaced its old wooden ones a few years ago. Hope some local archeologist did a little sifting while Telluride had things dug up.

Jay's mom is so young! She must have been a mere tyke when she had him! ;)

I love that photo with the contrast of the snowy buildings and the Summer-dressed Wilsons! :D

Oh, what was that snow like that Jay skied on? Looks a bit gnarly!
