Banff - Day 1

Justin and I just got home from a trip to Banff, Alberta, Canada.

A couple of days after we got home from Mexico in February, we found out that Justin had earned this trip from a company that he works with. This same company sent us to Arizona a few years ago. We had never heard of Banff, and since we are very much beach-goers, this is a place that we never would have traveled to on our own. We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to go to Banff. It is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen!

We had so much fun! I am proud of Justin for his hard work. I know his job isn't always easy, but this is sure a great reward for hard work!

We left on Sunday morning. We flew to Denver and then Calgary.


We had a two hour bus ride to our hotel - the Fairmont Springs - which is a castle that was built around 1880.

Our first night there was pretty relaxed. They provided a buffet for us, and we enjoyed spending time with some of Justin's co-workers, as well as some new people.







We were checking out the castle and found some elk right next to the building.

Playing at the Park!

We are so thankful the park is just two blocks from our house. The kids love to ride their scooters/big wheels there. 

I love this picture that Justin took on the way to the park.

Summer fun - last week!

Wouldn't you know it -- I'm behind again! :) These pictures are all from last week. The kids had another fun week of outdoor activities! We went to the spray park twice and the zoo once! We also swam in our back yard a number of times!
 




 
Jax got some water in his ear, so he decided to rest. Have you ever seen this kid rest near a pool/spray park? I hadn't!
 
 
Jaxon, Buddy and Gizmo took a nap together - I love that Jaxon gets to snuggle with his stuffed puppy and his real puppy! Gizmo is sure good to our kids!
 
 
Jax played American Girl dolls with his sisters. I love this - he told them how to dress Jordyn's doll, and then he decided to match her (goggles and life jacket). The purple tinker toys are the lake he made. :)
 
 
Jax insists on having his picture on this rock every time we go to the zoo -- really, it's just his way of getting to climb the rock.
 







 
We also played spa and the girls got pedicures. Jax just likes to soak his feet in the bubbles. :)


Summer continues to go way.too.fast. The girls are already registered for school.
Slow down summer!

Sunday!

Since we have been gone so much this summer, it had been a while since we had been to our church.

Of course I had to snap a few pictures before leaving for church! :)











We sure love those kiddos!

After church, the kids swarm in the backyard for several hours! I love that our back yard is fenced in -- swimming in the back yard allows Justin and myself to relax! :)




Jayla and Jax love to run and jump into the pool!





I love these hot, summer days!
