  • West Glacier

  • To finish out our vacation, we headed back south to Montana. We took the raft, and Wren had her first float on the river (it was super tame) and just generally kicked around. ^^This is how Harper naps on the boat^^ ^^I took 2 casts while we were stopped and caught a fish!^^ ^^Wren c [...]
  • Elkwood

  • For the second summer in a row, we headed up to Peter Lougheed Provincial Park for just shy of a week. We were able to convince some friends/family to come with us this year, which made it even better. We lucked out and had mostly great weather. ^^Daddy-Wren hammock cuddles^^ ^^Aunt Robin and [...]
  • Little Bitterroot

  • Avalanche

  • We went camping down in MT last weekend. We had planned to hike into Avalanche lake on saturday, but it was pretty smoky and drizzly. Lee and my dad wanted to do some fishing on McDonald Creek, and the kids were content to play on the river shore, so we did that instead, followed by a  short jaunt [...]
  • Oviatt Ormston Camp 2nd Edition

  • A good friend of mine and I continued the tradition again this year and took the kids on a lady camp (no husbands) for a few days with our kiddies.  We were supposed to go to Writing-on-stone again this year, but due to a poo water advisory, we changed plans last minute. We ended up at Daisy May C [...]
  • Writing-on-Stone

  • A couple months ago, we planned a camping trip to Writing-on-stone provincial park with some friends. Mike and Tara had their second baby in March, so it was supposed to be the maiden infant camping trip for both of us. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure those guys are cursed weather wise;) (see our att [...]
  • Gurney Reunion 2013

  • Some of my siblings and our families got together along with my Dad and Grandma and did some camping a few weekends ago. The weather was hot hot hot, and unfortunately there was a blue-green algae bloom in the lake, so the water was off limits. We still managed to have a great time! ^^It was a li [...]
  • Writing-On-Stone

  • Last week, I, along with a couple friends of mine, packed our kids up to Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park for a couple nights. The weather mostly cooperated, the kids were well behaved, and we only needed a moderate amount of help from a nearby good Samaritan to back the trailers in. ^^We were [...]
  • Boulton Creek - Minus the Snow

  • Early in May, our friends introduced us to the Boulton Creek Campground. You can read about that experience here. We loved the area so much, we went back last week for 6 days. We were worried about access to the mountains because of all the flooding, but right before we left, they reopened almost ev [...]
  • Row, Row, Row, Your Boat

  • We took advantage of the fabulous weather this weekend to head to Montana for the weekend and take the boat out on its 2013 inaugural voyage. We were lucky enough to have my Dad join us for the Father's Day weekend. ^^When did she get so big?^^ ^^Always able to find a puddle^^ [...]
  • Boulton Creek, Black Prince and Canmore

  • We met up with friends we don't get to see nearly often enough this weekend. It was the maiden camping voyage for both couples and their almost 1 year old babies. And it was COLD. Snow in the campground, wear every single clothing article you brought in your sleeping bag kind of cold. After the firs [...]
