Final days

My visit back home is coming to an end, and I think I'm satisfied with all that I was able to do. Of course I was not able to see everyone I wanted, and I'm sure some feelings are hurt, but what can one do?? I have been running around non-stop and still have a ton to do before I leave Wednesday morning!!!

I guess I could have much larger things to complain about then having too many friends, and family that want to see me!!! I think with this trip home I truly realized what I meant to so many people. I dont' mean that in the "oh I'm so popular" kind of way. I mean it in the WOW thank you for caring enough to take time to want to see me kinda way.

Main Street, Canmore, AB

This weekend my mom., step-dad, brother and his friend decided to head up to Canmore, Alberta. Spend some time in the beautiful Canadian Rockies!!! My parents have a place out there, and it would have been a shame if we didn't take advantage and head out. It's roughly 45 minutes drive from their front door!!

My favourite sitting place

We have had a great time together walking around the town, shopping, cooking, and drinking some great bottles of wine. Its hard to believe that in less than 72 hours I will be back home in Cancun, and not a mountain in sight. I think Canmore is one of the places I miss the most to be honest. We always have such a wonderful time when we come, and it's so relaxing.

As I post this I am sitting on their couch next to their stone fireplace, staring out the huge bay windows with a view of the snow capped Rocky Mountains..... What better way to end my trip!

Leah - Thanks amiga!! I'll be in Cancun before I know it :)

Ashlie - Banff sure is beautiful, but I now prefer Canmore! Only 15 minutes apart, but Canmore is what Banff was 30 years ago!! LOL!! It's already a chilly 10 degrees right!!! Aww...the Mtns in Vancouver are unreal as well :)

30 years ago had a ski trip to Banf. We were helicoptered in and had one run that lasted ALL day - very cool!

Calypso - wow, 30 years ago!! Heli-skiing is for the brave!!! It's something many of my friends and family do, but not this little chica!!! A little to risky for me! Glad you enjoyed your time :)
