Canada - we arrive at Banff

It's cool and crisp at 8 pm in Banff, Alberta Canada

We stayed at the Fairmont in Banff over night since our hell-hiking adventure didn't start until the next day.

Sky standing on the restaurant patio...it was so cold we had to run inside immediately after the picture.

Aiden ordered a margarita pizza but feel asleep right there in the restaurant before 
his pizza even arrived. It was 9 pm Alberta time, 11 pm EST. 

The CMH bus picked us up at 9 am sharp.

i want to remember this moment forever

can't compete with the tv

I can't compete with the TV so I limit it as much as possible.  This afternoon they were totally exhausted so I let them veg for a little while....look at those faces...they have no idea I'm even standing here taking a picture of them.

I think Aiden looks like Adam but Ms. Marcy says he looks like Steve Irwin.  LOL.

The only way to get all of the chores done is for EVERYONE to pitch in!  : )

a gift from his big brother

Aiden made Nicolas a boat for his birthday.  

I've told the kids that they can only make (not buy) gifts for each other and Mom and Dad.  It's so much more fun this way...and from the heart.
