Banff: Day 4

Our last day in Banff was another busy one! 
We started the day with a hike around Lake Minnewanka, just outside of Banff. 

Jakob and Grandpa being silly...


Walking around the lake:





Lots of exploring:




It was very foggy, but still beautiful!





After our hike we went to Canmore. We swam and then climbed at Elevation Place.
The boys love this place and were really looking forward to coming back here!






Back to Banff for supper at the Magpie and Stump.


That wraps up our trip to Banff. It was a fun long weekend!

Banff: Day 3

Our 3rd day in Banff was a busy one!
We started the day with brunch at the Keg.


We also celebrated Zack's birthday at brunch. Zack was very happy with his new Lego set!


After brunch we went and walked around the Bow Falls.


The boys loved skipping rocks and running around.





These 2! Such good friends :)


After the Bow Falls, we went and warmed up at the Banff Upper Hot Springs:


Then, bowling. The boys were looking forward to this all week!



Another great day!

Banff: Day 2

Our second day in Banff was a little cold and rainy, but we had a great time as a family!
First a hike to the Silverton falls just outside Banff.






Then on to Lake Louise. It was very wet and rainy there. We were only there for a few minutes, just long enough to take a few pictures!



Cute cousins!


The whole gang:



After Lake Louise we went out for dinner and then back to the hotel for a swim.


Every night we ended up at the candy store. Zack also stopped for a picture with all the "animals" along the way.

Banff: Day 1

We just returned from a great long weekend in Banff!
We got to Banff early in the afternoon on Friday and checked into our hotel. It was still early and the weather was so beautiful that we decided to go for a 'quick' 3km hike. We hiked to the top of Tunnel Mountain. The view was amazing!


My boys:


Levi and I taking a little break, half way up.


At the top!


Lots of great views:


Me and my boys:


Family shot! (It was starting to get windy as the sun was setting).


These "mountain goats" making their way down the mountain.

Halloween

Halloween at school; Zack and his best friend Emily both dressed as giraffes. So cute!


Jake handed out candy while Levi the Minion and Zack the giraffe went trick or treating.


Our neighbourhood was pretty busy, lots of kids running around, including these 2 :)
