Getting Outside

 

As I mentioned earlier, we’ve had a cazy beautiful spring here in Calgary and that means we’ve been outside. A lot.  A couple of weekends ago Travis’ sister came up for a few days and we spent every day outside.  One of those days included a trip to Banff Alberta and a hike up Johnston’s Canyon.

The older three had no problems keeping up and the youngest one hung out in the backpack carrier.

Her stamina never ceases to surprise me. She hiked a solid couple of hours with nothing but a grin the whole time.
