(can you see Jack sleeping in the ergo?) ; )
I am finally posting! The summer is almost gone and I have hardly posted on the blog….I guess I have been busy with being a mom while Clint has been working 6 days a week this summer. We broke away for 3 days to go camping in the mountains. We were just East of Calgary, near Banff, about 4 hours from home.
The view was amazing! We enjoyed some awesome hikes! The beautiful mountains and aqua blue water was steller. Despite some scary bear warnings, we came out alive!
Though the scenery was breathtaking, camping as a whole was a bit of a bummer. We had some sick kiddos, a baby who didn't sleep well (ahem…Jack) which means none of us really got quality sleep. I actually "slept" with Jack in the van while Clint and big 3 were in the tent. The nights were a bit chilly but by afternoon it was warm in the sun. We had a few "squatting" incidents... we think the drinking water made our tummies icky, enough said. Needless to say, tenting with 4 kids including a baby was a lot of work. Maybe we'll opt for a cabin next year till all our kids are a bit bigger?
Clint and I are looking forward to visiting the mountains again in September for our anniversary sans kiddos (well Jack will be in tow actually). This time we'll be sleeping hotel style!
