Banff Trip 1

First weekend here in Calgary, no moving van from Texas; we went to Banff. It is about a beautiful hours drive away from here.

You may reconize this from a previous post from Harry's month long trip before we all came up. But I had to take the famous picture too!

Near the river through the mountains, beautiful. Logan thinks so too

Very accomidating mountain climbing

Then we thought it would be fun to ride this thing...all the way to the top instead of walking. (Harry thinks he will go back and walk it himself. The boys and I will stay at the bottom and drink hot chocolate or something)

Going up...

still going up

At the top finally. I found someone with a big Nikon camera and figured she could handle a real camera...Canon!!

We did not move here for the cheap prices of ANYTHING or the long lines at the grocery stores or the 30 degree rainy weather in JUNE but perhaps to see this...

Yes it is pretty amazing...

It has been two weeks since we moved to Calgary. I do miss my friends and family terribly though. I am homesick. If you read my blog, leave a comment, send an e-mail, shoot a fax, write a letter send a text!

We are off to Panorama, British Columbia this weekend for our first "Holiday!"

Just love it Heather. That hour ride to Banff better have been better than mine in the middle of a terrible snow storm. We got into an accident at the exit to our hotel (Fairmont Lake Louise). I love the pictures. That is a good reason for the move. A great adventure for your family. Keep the pictures coming. IM me or Skype if you get homesick. Can't wait to talk to you and the boys soon! Happy National Aboriginal Day holiday.

The view is breath taking, but most of that is probably due to the expert eye you have for beauty. Miss you all. Hope your first holiday is memoriable. Give everyone a hug for us

So beautiful!! We miss you too and love you guys so much. Such beauty though in those gorgeous mountains. Fill your hard drive up with all those awesome shots so when you move back to Texas you can order a poster sized photo of one of your mountain shots and place on some wall of your home. What a wonderful experience you are gifted with. Enjoy those cooler temps cause I am dying here in Kansas. Being pregnant during the summer is for the birds!! Love ya!!
