We’re Back from our Canadian Rocky Mountains Family Trip!


This weekend we took a family trip to Banff National Park, a popular gem hidden in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

We are fortunate to live just a few hours away, so we try to visit as often as possible. Each time we go, we have new adventures, see new things. So, I can report from personal experience that there is something for everyone to do, even kids at every age.

Here’s just a tiny snippet of what we did over the weekend, simply gorgeous, right?

    Banff is amazing, i am sure you all had an unforgettable trip! When I moved to Alberta 7 years ago, Banff was one of the first places I got to visit ans exploe with my aunt and uncle. I was speechless and absolutely amazed. I had lived in Ontaio my whole life and had never really traveled too far away. I couldn’t believe what I was missing! It’s so surreal it’s almost like its not real. I love the mountains and the clear blue water. love all your pictures!!
