more photos from Banff

One more shot from Sunshine Village

 Banff Springs Hotel - we were a five minute walk from this view point across the river. It was a bit of a walk into town, but a beautiful view the entire way and the weather was fantastic!

The Bow River

During the conference, we were provided our meals in the Vistas dining room - it had an amazing view!
Chester has taken to making silly faces in purpose...
Chester at the climbing gym - we all gave it a try - it was soooo fun! Now we just have to figure out where to climb at home! 

 These are from the day that Doodlepants and I explore around town in Banff while hubby and Chester skiied Kicking Horse in BC. We got a real kick out of this delivery vehicle. Yoshi was purchased at one of the local shops. Doodlepants was thrilled as he is a BIG fan (he was Yoshi for Halloween - see his homemade costume here) but has only a pink Yoshi at home. Yoshi spent the day riding in my backpack, looking out at the view or riding in my son's jacket. He was treated to both a Booster Juice and a candy apple, lol!

 Booster Juice was a big hit with the boys and it was a great place to go when we needed a snack but not a meal.

More skiing photos to follow - we were originally going to spend four days total (two weekends) skiing at Sunshine, but since Doodlepants found the mountain too much for him, we rejigged and rearranged, you know "divide and conquer". In the end, we covered four mountains
we all did Sunshine
Hubby and Chester did Mt. Norquay & Kicking Horse
and Chester and I did Lake Louise on our last day
Chester managed five days of skiing out of the deal - I don't know how he does it!

We are heading out shortly to hit the slopes locally,
Shanna :)
