Banff Springs 2006 or (BS06)

Well I know it's taken me longer to get these up than it should have. I went to do it on Tuesday, and Michael had "fixed" the computer again, and the internet didn't work. Ahh...lovely. Well it was a blast. We had the best time in Banff. It was beautiful.

We got there on Friday and got to the room and just chatted until we had to go to dinner. The food was amazing. Between us we got Beef Tenderloin, Pork Chops, Trout, and Chicken Alfredo. Yum. The highlight though was the dessert buffet. It was so good. I of course ate way too much, but all of the walking we did around the hotel took care of it I'm sure (right). We toured all over the hotel, and it was so beautiful. We looked in every room we could. We then went back to the room for some See's candies, and more talking. We wanted to get a movie, but none of us would have made it through.

We woke up the next day and were going to get breakfast brought to the room, but we decided to go the buffet instead. While getting ready we blew a fuse and had no power for a while. That's nice when 5 women are trying to get ready. So, we missed the buffet, and we just ordered breakfast instead. It again, was super tasty. We walked around a little more and then checked out and headed into the town for some shopping. We looked in the little gift shops, the gem store, the Christmas Store, and the Fudgery of course. We then stopped for Starbucks before heading home. It was so much fun. Here are the pictures, and most of them have captions for some more details.

That's funny...I didn't dye my hair at all...it's been the same for about 2 years. I think the bangs being cut makes it look darker? A lot of people have said that though. Hmmm.
