  • Echo Dale Park

  • My brother was off work last week, so we decided to drive up to Medicine Hat and visit my Grandma, who we haven't seen in far too long. Instead of trying to cram 8 children and 5 adults into her tiny apartment, we went to Echo Dale Park. This place is amazing! Grass areas, parks, fire pits, and a [...]
  • Red Rock Canyon

  • Lee was on call the other day, so I tagged along with D&J and spent the day in Waterton. The weather was a little crappy, but this family doesn't let a little rain keep us from the mountains:) ^^Jack was a trooper and creek-crawled all the way to the upper bridge^^ ^^Harp [...]
  • Wally's Beach

  • We went to a little local beach this week. I hadn't been there in over 10 years, back when about 10 people knew it existed and the only way to find it was if you were one of those 10 people or were following one of those 10 people. To my amazement, it's now quite the popular place. The kids had a [...]
  • Elkwood

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 [...]
  • Lower Rowe Lake

  • Lee was working this weekend, so my brother and his wife let me tag along on their family adventures. We hiked into Lower Rowe Lake, and my total trooper sister-in-law packed Harper in and out the entire 8km. I am so grateful for this amazing family. They are always willing to help me out, and are r [...]
  • Park Lake

  • We went to Park Lake earlier this week. Jack managed to catch a tiny fish. I suspect that the fish was already dead, allowing it to get "caught" rather easily. Once Jack realized that his little fish was dead, he lost interest. Harper, on the other hand was all about that dead fish. She carried it [...]
  • ...and hiking season begins.

  • We hiked into Crandall Lake on Saturday with some extended family. The weather wasn't too bad, and all the kids (including Wren) did great! I did however notice that 10 months of being pretty sedentary are catching up to me:( ^^Snuggle Hiking^^   ^^Cousin Friends^^ ^^Checking out the [...]
  • Cypress Hills

  • Yesterday, My dad and I took my kids, an a couple of my nieces to Medicine Hat to pick up my Grandma. We then drove out to the Beach on Elkwater Lake in Cypress Hills Provincial Park. ^^Some fellow beach goers had rigged up this floating trampoline and were gracious enough to share^^ [...]
