A few weeks ago we loaded up the kids (along with 2 million snacks, road bingo cards, the ipad, the neck pillows and more children’s music than I’d like to admit) and hit the road for a family adventure. Road trips aren’t really my thing (says the girl who has to pee every 30 minutes), but given that we wanted to see family and do some camping, it was the way to go this year. My oldest daughter had been BEGGING to go to the ‘dinosaur place’ for months, so we knew we’d be visiting the Royal Tyrrell Museum. (Digression: I am pretty sure we did that museum in record time! 45 minutes from entrance to gift shop, and I didn’t get to read a single thing along the way. Kids have a very different concept of museums than adults do – speed learning.) Along the way we also stopped at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame, Heritage Ranch, a hotel with a waterslide (some of the best money EVER spent!), stayed at the comfort camping tents at Dinosaur Provincial Park, hit up the Calgary Zoo and spent time with family. It was a lot of bonding, and like any family with 2 young kids, we had our moments when we wondered what the heck we were doing, but overall we had a great time. Still, almost a month later, my 5 year old says it was her favourite trip ever.
Here’s a little glimpse into my life. As a family, we’ve watched this slideshow more times that I can count.
P.S. For the photographers – all images and video taken with my very small Fuji X100t – because I like to travel light. 🙂
