“Spring Break”

We managed to sneak in an afternoon hike in Kananaskis Country with Conor's sisters and their families. It was a gorgeous day and so fun to be outside in the mountains. Holly stayed in Calgary with my parents because her knee hurt and she had her own kind of awesome day with them. The kids all hike so well together. At our halfway mark, we stopped for snacks and the kids built fires unsupervised. This was totally childhood unplugged. It was pretty dreamy.

We went to Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump with my Mom and Sisters. I remember going there when I was little and I must have really enjoyed it because I've wanted to go again for as long as I can remember. It was really fun to take my girls and learn about Alberta history. The building itself is so neat. It's built into the cliff and blends right in. The exhibit was awesome and the staff were so inviting and friendly. It was so cool!

While in Calgary, it was very important to me to make a stop at the Calgary Zoo. We went with our Larsen cousins (and some of their cousins!) and had a fantastic time! One highlight was seeing Panda Bears! So amazing! 

One of the biggest cousins with the littlest. Maeve gets so incredibly loved on by all her cousins!

Over spring break, we went to Calgary. Conor was already in Calgary when I drove up with the girls. I had enough nerves about driving up on my own and they woke me up at 4:30am. So needless to say, we got a very early start! We were all very excited to see Conor's Dad, Jim, who spent a total of 45 days in the hospital. We visited him on Day 44. Holly and Greta watched a countless number of movies with Jim throughout the week. It was pretty cute. And they went on many walks to the mailbox with him too. One morning, Greta helped keep track of Jim's reps for his physio. It's the little things.
