Our Family Holidays

Over the course of Todd's and my marriage we've gotten to travel from one end of America to the other - and back again ... as well as going from side to side. We have had lots of wonderful holidays with friends and families and this is the place where I will tell you about those.

One of our first holidays when we moved to Montana was to Canada. Since it was only a few hours drive it was within easy access. Todd managed to do a few air shows up there so he would fly up there and Timothy and I would get to drive. We got to see lots of beautiful scenery on our drives. About a year after we arrived in Montana Todd surprised Timothy and I by taking us up to Banff. I had told Todd on many occasions that it was a place I wanted to visit as I had seen so many lovely photos of it over the years. We were driving to see Terry at Saskatchewan in Canada where he was attending an air show, so we took the long way back home and dropped into Banff. Here are some photos of our lovely two day stop-over there.

Lake Louise, Banff

Lake Louise, Banff, Canada. I had seen this amazing scenery in so many photos over the years, it was a dream come to to see it in person. We got up at around 4am to get up there to take photos of the sunrise. It was well worth the wait, even though it was rather a cold morning.

Timothy and Todd with the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in the background. If you're like me, you've seen this hotel in so many photos before. We drove up to it (and around it), but we didn't stay there as the rooms were rather small and just a tad out of our budget!!

The Three of Us

That's us with Lake Minnewanka behind us. Lovely scenery, but the name did catch my attention. I'm assuming there's a wonderful local meaning behind it. We got some nice family Christmas card shots while we were there though.

Todd & Timothy

Todd & Timothy at Lake Louise. It was a dream come true for me to get to see the majesticness (is there such a word?!) of this place after seeing so many photos of it over the years!!

Looks like Timothy's just about to go in and check out the temperature of the water!!
