Took a little hiatus upon my return from our mini holiday. We got back Thursday and I took the extended weekend to decompress and lay low. It was much needed. This trip was a bit of a whirlwind that involved WAY too much driving and too many late, late nights. Alberta is 1 hour ahead of us, plus they get daylight until quite late - so going to bed early was a challenge that we failed every night. I'm almost caught up now.
Thankfully though the weather was beautiful!
This is what faced us as we packed up and left Friday morning.
Thankfully we drove out of that crap and found sunshine. By the evening we were treated by this amazing view of Mt Robson near the BC/Alberta border. It's a rare treat to find this view completely unobstructed from clouds.
The wedding was amazing! It was a gorgeous day, the weather couldn't have been more perfect. A lovely casual event with an incredible view in the Canadian Rockies. My husband is the
giraffe 2nd groomsman.
This is us after the ceremony.
My son before the ceremony. You wouldn't know it but he was sick with a cold and after one dose of daytime cold medicine he was ready to drop off to sleep, which he spent the majority of the day doing.
And my daughter posing on the bridge afterwards
The view from our room was breathtaking. Such a beautiful part of our country. I ♥ nature!
I have a few more pictures to share but I'll leave that for another day.
The trip was way too short with WAY too much driving. 28 hours of driving time (not including stops) in less than a week. Didn't leave alot of room for activity, but I did manage to squeeze it in, even if at times it was on the lame side.
I have returned though with a refreshed resolve and a renewed fire! All those hours in the truck are good for something....
