We took a little side trip to Banff this summer with our friends, Amorette and Parker and their girls. We left Maeve behind with my sister (Thanks Kim!), and threw the babies on our backs. Our first stop was Sunshine Mountain Lodge where we caught a gondola (Ira was terrified) and a chair lift up higher into the mountains. We then hiked through wildflowers and to Alpine Lakes. It was breathtakingly beautiful! I just wish we had gotten there earlier in the day and didn't have to worry about catching the last gondola back down the mountain. What a great start to our couple of days in Banff!
