 A Little Trip (part 2)

After Waterton we headed down to Great Falls, Montana.  We were so close to the great USA we just couldn't resist.  First we headed to an air show.  I am pretty sure we have become total softies since adjusting to the mild Canadian summers because I was positive we were going to melt before the end of the show.  Actually, Logan and Campbell didn't seem to mind they were too busy enjoying the airplanes. 

I think the Blue Angels were their favorite part.  It was pretty incredible watching all the things that these jets could do.  At one point Campbell ducked down when they swooped down past the crowd. 

Next it was my turn to have fun so we went to Target.  Oh how I miss Target!

Needless to say, it was a full day so that night we relaxed at our hotel, ate snacks, and watched a movie together.


Before we left we were sure to take our traditional jumping on the bed pictures.  Here is Logan.

Campbell loved jumping on the beds but wasn't super cooperative in the process.  Here he is in Waterton.  I guess he is more of a diver than a jumper. 

Maybe Campbell  gets it from his dad.

And here I am, lovely isn't it? 

It was a fun but short trip with a lot of driving but I think we all enjoyed ourselves and would love to do it again.

A Little Trip

We had the chance to take a trip over a long weekend so we headed to Waterton National Park (the Canadian side of Glacier National Park).  To get there we had to drive through Southern Alberta so we made sure that we swung by Raymond, the town where Mike's mother was born.  It was a quick stop but we were able to visit the grave of James Heninger, Mike's grandfather.  We also drove by the house he was raised in. 

The Cardston Temple was right on the way too. 

The boys enjoyed jumping on the beds when we got to our hotel in Waterton.  It is our family tradition to get actions shots, don't worry there are more to come.

This is what we saw right outside our hotel room.  We saw wild life all over the park.

We road the bicycle suri to Cameron Falls.  The falls were beautiful but the boys couldn't have cared less, they just wanted to get back on the bike.     

We had so much fun touring around Waterton by Suri.  The boys said it was their favorite part of the day. 

Did I mention Waterton was beautiful? 

Here is a another view of Upper Waterton Lake (taken from the Prince of Wales Hotel).

I have had many requests to see more of my growing belly so here you go.  I have seven weeks to go.

The canoe rental place closed minutes before we got to Cameron Lake.  We were so disappointed but glad that we got to enjoy the view (We'll go next time Logan, I promise). 

It was a very full day, after we biked around town we ate a delicious lunch at a restruant on the lake then we headed to red rock canyon.  I wish we had pictures, it was beautiful.  The boys walked up and down the shallow riverbed throwing rocks and playing in the water.  Next we drove to Cameron Lake (missed the canoeing wah, wah) and then ate dinner at Weiners of Waterton (which I highly recommend).  On our way out of the park we stopped by the famous Prince of Wales Hotel and continued on to Cardston where we stayed the night on our way down to Montana.  It was truely a great day.
Just Because...

Aren't they cute?

P.S. Don't worry, they got haircuts a few days later.

These two do everything together.


This is just a typical moment  captured although Campbell isn't always the one on top.  This love-hate relationship keeps me busy. They love to play together which often ends in a brawl.  Boys!


They couldn't love this bunkbed more.  I think Campbell is proud to sleep in a big boy bed. Now if I could just get them to keep the nice blankets I bought over the Lightening McQueen sheets. . .

Mike took the boys camping one weekend while I went shopping in Calgary with a friend  (what a brave man).  The boys are still talking about it weeks later.  Mike took them into this little town nearby for ice cream.


Campbell is stubborn and definately has a mind of his own but I'd say Logan is the inspiration for most of his decisions.   

I can't describe what a funny pair these two are. 

Life is never dull around here.
