Some more creations...

My weekend away was so much fun. A room filled with women passionate about scrapbooking...really, does it get any better than that.

Oh, yeah...and meals prepared for me. No cleaning, no kids and no bedtime! It was nice and I managed to get some fun pages done!

This one is Reese's 3rd Birthday:Reese NEVER falls asleep on us...except for this one time just before supper:Reese is all girl...just yesterday she told me that she wanted a green cell phone for Christmas, one with Tinkerbell on it (I wrote that one down on the "to get" list):Every year our first camping outing is to the same place. It's become a tradition to skip stones along the river sometime during the weekend (and doing it for a couple of hours at a time...Robert is actually getting the hang of it):
More to come later, enjoy your week.

My favorite page from my weekend.

So, last weekend I spent doing what I enjoy so very much. I went on a retreat that I attend every year. It was just what I needed and just happened to be preceded by a few days in the Rocky Mountains with my fam.

Our time in Banff was so much fun. We simply relaxed in our chalet most of the time. The kids saw a doe and a buck just outside of our room as we pulled in and that was the best start to the trip. It actually made me a little nervous because the buck had 5-point antlers and was only about 5-feet away from us. I was quick to tell the kids not to move a muscle and let the animals pass.

Once in our chalet we had chickadees come to our we fed them some bread and nuts. That brought more birds...some whiskey jacks, magpies and even one very confident squirrel.

We spent our time lazing around and walking through the many shops in downtown Banff. Really, for us a trip to Banff is seldom a bore. It was really nice to get away.

Here are some pics from our trip:
What trip is complete without a tea party?

We came home from Banff on Wed evening and I headed out to my retreat on Fri afternoon. All in all a great week.

Here is my fave LO from the weekend. It a pic of my son and his ABSOLUTELY best friend in the world...TOOT (our dog)! Last week made a year that we've had's hard to believe what life was like without him in our home!
