A few weeks ago we were able to go with Adam's family to Canada for his Grandpa's 80th Birthday Party. It was so good to see everyone, it has been about two years since we made it up there last. We spent a lot of time just visiting with family but also got sometime in to get out and see a few things. It is a 12 hour drive up there and we drove all night long so the kids would sleep. Andie did so well the whole drive up there and back I was so proud of her. The day after we got there we went to the lake for the Birthday Party. Andie loved the water and couldn't get enough. Everytime we turned around she was running for the water. Andie loved playing with her cousins. We stayed with a few of Adam cousins that have little girls that are about three and five months older than Andie. It was so good for her to be around little girls her age, she never gets that at home. Thanks again Michael, Melinda, Jeffery and Emily for all you did for us while we were there!
One day we went with Adams sister Brooke and her family to Banff. I have never been there before but it was amazing. It was nice to go walk around, eat delicious food a visit with family. While we were there we went up to the Hotel and it was amazing! It is so old but has been totally remodeled. Also the views from the hotel are breathtaking.
Also while we were up there we went to the falls. Andie was really fascinated with them and it was really fun to walk around and look at everything. Andie has learned to smile whenever the camera comes out and she is such a cheese ball now, I love it!!!
** Also while we were there Adam's amazing cousin Heather took some family pictures of us. As soon as she gets them all edited I will post them. We have got a few back and they are AMAZING!! She took the one we have as our header and I love it!
