Labour Day Labour

I was quite determined to get out and get physical with my family this Labour Day.  So, on Monday morning we headed out bright and early for Banff National Park to hike Johnson's Canyon.  We invited the masses, but only Jared's mom and sister Renee and her family came along.  Everyone else missed out, let me tell you, it was a blast!

 Here we are, after the hike.  We wanted to go all the way to the ink pots, but I've been sick as a dog for two weeks and just didn't have the energy, and while Eli was a real trooper, but was pooped by the upper falls.  5.2 km wasn't bad for either of us. Plus, I helped push my niece Rhiannon in her wheelchair most of the way up to the lower falls.
Not sure what face Jared is making here, but Eli is showing where we hiked. He was pretty proud. 

It was crazy busy, so we didn't get a chance to get a big group shot, but I did get a few gooders. 

And afterward, as a reward, we drove out to Lake Louise and got icecream.  The boys couldn't have been happier!


  1. That looks like fun! Can we do this next labor day???

  2. im hurt that we werent invited! looks like fun!

  3. I'm sad that we missed it, but I just couldn't face that long a walk with Bryn and Henrik! I am definitely in when all my kids can walk it for themselves! I know I'm a pansy.
