i *heart* banff!
For the long weekend Graham and I took the girls to Banff and we had such a good time...I love Banff! I have so many fun memories there and haven't been there in a long time, so it was fun to take a little trip as a family. The girls had a blast, and we packed alot in to the couple days we were there...swimming, eating, shopping in town, waterslides, taking the gondola up to the top of the mountain (this was a highlight!) and just hanging out at the hotel. They LOVE hotels. Really, Graham and I could just get a hotel room in Edmonton and they would think we're on a trip!
Anyways, here are a few pictures...
(Kherington spent most of the weekend hidden in the snugli...it was a bit chilly, and she loved being cuddled up tight!)
We weren't sure the weather would be that great...as we were driving in to Banff on Thursday it was a full-on blizzard! (gotta love Canadian weather!) So winter wonderlandy in fact, that Payton was singing "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" in the back seat. Haha! But it warmed up and we had a great time. On the way home we stopped at the track and watched Graham dirt-bike. It was fun. The girls thought it was great to just run around and get dirty and I was excited to see Gray do what he loves to do. Last summer I was so sick that I didn't see him bike much at all, so this was good.
Today was spent cleaning around the house...I have a big "spring cleaning" to-do list that I want to get going on. It may not feel very springy right now (WHERE is the nice weather???) but it's time to get crackin'. So far we've cleaned out and tidied the toys in the basement and in the girls bedroom...that was a big job. Next I'll be tackling closets and cupboards.
Let the cleaning begin!
