  • Bertha Falls

  • We hiked into Bertha Falls (6km round trip, 150m elevation gain) this weekend. In all my years of Hiking in Waterton, I think this my first time seeing the falls. The water was high, so the falls were pretty impressive, and we actually made it off the trail without any rain! ^^All ready to go [...]
  • 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 [...]
  • 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 [...]
  • Happy Canada Day!

  • I am so grateful for this country I live in. The freedoms and opportunities I enjoy.  Most of us started out the day wearing red and white. Jack rode his bike through the biggest mud puddle he could find, so had to change. I tried to squeeze into pants I don't really fit in yet, and had to change, [...]
  • ...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 [...]
  • Happy 2014

  • We spent New Years Day in the mountains with some friends. We had planned on snow shoeing, but the trail was so packed down, it was easier to just walk. The kids did fantastic. They needed a little coaxing along the way but we made it into the lake and back without any major melt downs! ^^Th [...]
  • Red Rock Canyon

  • My friend Antonia and I took our kids up to Waterton and hiked strolled to Blakiston Falls. Harper actually walked most of the way, until my impatience won out on the way back and I finally threw her in the backpack. After our walk, we played in the Canyon for a bit, stopped by the park, and finishe [...]
  • I hope I still get points for trying

  • We had grand plans today. My tiny 18 month old crushed them. How does someone so small dictate the actions of 4 people? We had planned on snowshoeing into Forum Falls. Waterton was beautiful this morning! They had received a huge dump of fresh snow last night, and the wind was calm. Too bad Harper [...]
  • Hiking Forum Lake

  • We decided to stick around home the long weekend instead of braving the campground crowds. Of course, instead of actually staying home and finishing the "organize the garage" project we started 4 weeks ago, we went hiking into Forum Lake instead. Lee only carried Jack up the super steep beginning p [...]
  • Summer Fun

  • It's a good thing I have friends who are "funner" moms than me. Otherwise, my kids would have a very boring existence! Last week was fun extravaganza. Monday - Spray Park Jack has no fear or separation anxiety, and as soon as we got there, ran headlong into the water. His friend Haylen is a bit [...]
  • Hiking Crandell Lake

  • Last weekend, we met up with some friends and my parents to hike into Crandell Lake in Waterton. The weather wasn't as nice as we would have hoped (cold and WINDY) but the kids had a good time anyway. Jack walked the entire way in and out himself, albeit considerably slower that our usual pace. On [...]
