Happy Anniversary to my husband!

Two years ago, we got married on top of tunnel mountain in Banff, AB.  Two wonderful years!  And hoping I get to celebrate many, many more with you just as we celebrated this weekend.

My thoughtful, generous husband decided to treat us both to a trip to the mountains for our second anniversary.  I, silly person, forgot my CAMERA!!  However, I had the camera on my phone - poor substitute but I was able to capture a couple of pictures!

First off, we arrived in Banff and took a hike around Lake Minnewanka, then we checked into the beautiful Rimrock Hotel.  That night we had dinner at the fabulous Maple Leaf Grille.  After dinner we didn't feel quite ready to head back to the hotel so we strolled up the road to have a beverage at the Magpie & Stump.

Where we saw this cute VW with a hamburger on top.  So many people stopped to take their picture by it that of course we did too.  

Then we went back to the hotel and sat in front of the fireplace and chatted for a while.

It was a great evening.  

The next day we decided to challenge ourselves by hiking up Sulphur Mountain - which at the Gondola is 7,486 ft above sea level.  The hike took us 1 hour and 10 minutes to complete!  Then we took the easy way down and rode the gondola.  

We had a fantastic Anniversary weekend!  Thanks Myron!!  Love you honey!!

A little page

Just a little page that I managed to do in the last little while.  It was the first time the kids met the Hildebrand family, Christmas 2005.

We enjoyed many fun activities that Christmas, tobogganing, hiking, curling, skating, skiing, hay ride and most of all digging in the snow hills and making tunnels.  I believe it was one of our most enjoyable holidays.  =) Lisa
