Relaxing in the Mountains...

Just a quick note to let you all know that I'm relaxing with the family this week.

I have quite a few projects to share with you, but when I tried to download the pics late last Saturday night, my computer was being fussy, so I never got them posted.

So, here I am now and we are in Banff on a mini holiday (and a conference for my DH).

I just wanted to share quickly. We arrived yesterday, visited the pool and then just had a leisurely supper before we tackled a night routine. The kids were pumped up about being in the Rocky Mountains and sleep did not come easily.

After quite a few attempts, the kids finally fell asleep and woke up bright and early (6:30 am)! But we're doing good so far (it's 4:30 pm and we have not had any meltdowns).

We visited the Banff Gondola this morning, had lunch on a mountain peak and then headed down to the Sulphur Hot Springs. Now, pleasantly exhausted, we are going to head out for supper and hopefully an early bedtime.

Here are some pics of our sights today.

This is the view from the top of the Gondola, looking down on the town of Banff, Alberta.

All bundled up and enjoying the beautiful sights atop the mountain!

We're back Thursday...hope your week is as filled with fun as mine promises to be.
