Day Trip to Nordegg

On Friday Jakob and I drove out to Nordegg to pick up Levi from a week at his Adventure camp. 
He had the best time swimming, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing and all sorts of other adventures with his friends! Levi had so much fun, he wants to go back next year!

Levi's cabin, shared with 5 other boys and 2 leaders:

Levi's group on the last day, sharing highlights from the week with the parents:

Once we had Levi all packed up we went out for a day of exploring!
First... Abraham Lake:

The water was so blue and clear in such a beautiful setting:

Jakob was the only one brave enough to jump in the glacier water. It was COLD!

We spent the afternoon swimming, skipping rocks and laughing at these 2 and their silliness ;)

Then we drove down to the Icefields Parkway to Mistaya Canyon. It was crazy how much water was flowing through the canyon and so fast!

Jakob had to test the water out here as well:

Jakob and Levi clearly missed each other over the last week! They spent the whole day catching up and talking non stop. I love that they are best friends :)

Last stop was Crescent Falls, just outside Nordegg on our way back home.

1000 kms of driving in one day, but so worth it for the amazing day with my boys :)

Michael's Birthday

We had a great day today celebrating Michael! We started the day off by picking up our new Jeep, then we went to the pool for the day;

then out for dinner at a new (to us) Japanese restaurant:

followed by Michael's favorite, cheesecake!
(I tried to make a 38 out of the candles, lol)

Happy birthday, Michael!!

Last Day of School

Last day of Grade 10, 7 & 4. All 3 boys got honours and had a great year!

Zack also got another award on the last day of school recognizing his leadership and perseverance this year. Way to go, Zack!

Levi refused to let me take a picture of him on the last day (and pretty much any other time), so here's one from when we went out to celebrate their accomplishments:

Levi's Track & Field Day

Levi did so well in his school track & field day! He ran the 80M hurdles (came in 2nd), ran the 100m (2nd in his heat, came in 6th overall and made the relay team for city finals), long jump (1st), 200m (2nd). I was so happy that it fell on my day off so I could go and watch! Great job. Levi!

Jakob's Bike-a-thon

Jakob participated in the Bike-a-thon at his school this year. Their team had to continuously ride a bike for 24 hours to raise money for Doctors Without Boarders. They all were pretty tired the next day, but had a great time together as a team!

Happy New Year!

We spent New Year's day relaxing, playing games, skating and hanging out together as a family. The last couple months have been crazy, so it was nice to have a day together to do whatever we wanted.
