We Are Headed To Banff This Weekend!

My father considered a walk among the mountains

as the equivalent of churchgoing

I know my recent updates have been a lot of random photos and other fluff, but there is good reason for that.  Mike and I have both been rather busy with job hunting, and we are both starting new employment this month.  Mike’s first full day at his new job was yesterday, and mine is this Monday, so it’s been a month of change.  I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to updates or doing anything really worth writing about.  Mostly it’s a matter of too few hours in the day.

This weekend we are going to Banff, along with the kiddos and their dad.  We are going to be staying at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, which is on my Life List, and it is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen.  I am extremely excited.  We plan to hang out in the pool, do some shopping, ride the gondola, and hopefully hike a little.  I think a visit to the hot springs is also on the agenda.  We aren’t exactly roughing it, but I’m sure we’ll manage to enjoy ourselves in spite of that 😛

I should have some great photos to share after we get home!
