more Canada- picnic in the mountains

The day after my Mom, brother and sister-in-law flew in everyone headed to the mountains (well not really the mountains but the foothills rather) for a picnic and wiener roast.  It was a beautiful day outside- perfect for jeans and t-shirts :-)  We were able to grab a great spot next to the river with a beautiful view.  Jay loved tossing rocks into the river, something he doesn’t have much of a chance to do in Florida, so we spent lots of time down by the river.  We were also able to take a short hike, roast marshmallows and we stopped for ice cream on the way home.   This has always been one of my favorite things to do whenever we visit, I just wish that we were closer and could do it more often…

  1. Thanks for sharing these photos from Canada. The picnic day looks idyllic. I need a little refresh on your Canadian family tree … I’m not sure I can place the children with the correct family group. Beautiful country!!! I’d be happy to visit Alberta again, it is sooo beautiful!

  2. I loved the pictures! You all obviously had a great time that day. The landscape reminds me again of our wonderful trip to the Canadian Rockies last year. I will remember that trip forever.
