Thanksgiving 2011

Our Thanksgiving this year was different than any other year before.

For the past several years, I have grown tired of the same thing over and over and have wanted to just do something different… SO…

we headed up to Colorado Springs for a Thanksgiving at The Broadmoor Hotel.

It was beautiful up there and we had beautiful weather.  Here’s a few shots from around The Broadmoor.

Let’s not forget the wonderful buffet!  There were ice sculptures, cheeses from France (oh my gosh… the cheeses from France!), a full spread of breakfast or traditional Thanksgiving food, and the desserts included a chocolate fountain and bananas foster being cooked up right before our very eyes!

After we stuffed ourselves, we headed over to the Garden of the Gods for an afternoon of fun. It was 65 degrees and absolutely beautiful!

This is definitely a do-over. I wasn’t exhausted from cooking, baking, shopping, preparing, cleaning, etc.  It was absolutely wonderful, and now I’m thinking we may have just found a new family tradition!

Here’s to hoping your thanksgiving was fun and wonderful too!
