Summer - Finally!

The last two weeks have been incredibly warm and beautiful - almost making up for the summer that barely arrived! Yesterday we took a spontaneous day trip with my parents to Waterton Lakes National Park.

First we stopped by the river for a picnic lunch. Sierra and my dad threw rocks while the rest of us prepared the grub.

Wildlife decided to make an appearance on the other side of the river. We warily watched him (her?) amble down the banks, wade across the river, give us a look and continue on up stream. Phew!
We were primed and ready to heave the kids and ourselves into the van if he took even one step towards us.

Sierra worked on her endless energy source:
at the park....

...throwing leaves and more rocks into the lake.
...eating ice cream to refuel (no pic)

...walking along the lake and 'crunching' and kicking up leaves.

It was a fantastic day!
