we spent 4 days and 3 nights in the majestic mountains with our family and i feel simply refreshed. their's just something about that crisp, fresh mountain air that sneaks into the lungs and rejuvenates your soul.
and it was jack's first trip! which was so fun! i considered it a mini test trip before we fly out to phoenix in a few short months with the little man and it went so well. the wee boy slept the entire way home [4 hours!] without making a single peep. such a good boy.
daddy was also pleased as he believes our jack-bugg enjoyed those big old mountain peaks almost as much as he does and is already planning on how he is going to teach jack to ski. i actually had to remind the man that our son is just holding his head up, let alone about to strap on some skis and ride down a steep hill! oh, a man and his son. or maybe it's a man and his sports!
sigh....i am already a worried momma and he's not even walking yet.
banff was a beautiful as ever. i simply love that place. this time around we stayed in canmore, a short 20 minute drive from banff in the loveliest of condo's. pete's amazing at finding these new places to stay at and i'm never dissapointed. we also found a delicious new restaurant called crazyweed [if you're ever in the canmore area, i highly recommend].
for the most part, the boys all skiied and the girls strolled around canmore/banff browsing the quaint shops, which suited us all just fine.
all-in-all, a very relaxing getaway weekend.
