Getting Back To Exploring The Rocky Mountains Soon…. 6 Spots That Are Family Friendly & That We Love!

{Disclosure this post was sponsored post as part of an collaboration program with Buffalo Mountain Lodge, however all opinions are my own}

We are all getting very eager to start exploring parks again soon, especially Banff Alberta. It is hands down one of our families favourites and we have been enjoying visiting for the past 12 years. Every time we visit we find new destinations to check off our list and continue to keep visiting.  

From family friendly to more adult adventures there is so much for everyone to enjoy here and we are very grateful for the outdoors and the beautiful sceneries we often take for granted.  

Since self isolation in Canada I know for our family it has been a whirlwind of a lot of different things and knowing that one day soon we’ll be able to travel again and explore has us very excited. We love to try new things and visit new places in Banff.  

Today I’m sharing with you a few that we love, maybe you’ve been before and have memories to share from these special places or it could be a destination you’d like to visit either way soon we will all be able to get back to exploring the rocky mountains.  

  1. Lake Louise 

A classic and a must see every single time. It always amazes me. Summer time being able to rent a canoe and Winter on the chance, a frozen lake to rent skates on. Either way we are never disappointed by the beautiful scenery we all can enjoy! 

  1. Banff Gondola  

So much FUN! We love the Gondola ride and can easily spend a whole day at the top of the mountain exploring and hanging out. It is one of our favourites to visit. The scenic walk around the boardwalk is just enough for our family.  

  1. Two Jack Lake  

This drive is a beautiful one we love to take. We stop and just take our time exploring and taking in all the views.  

  1. Lake Minnewanka 

Located just before Two Jack Lake it’s like your hitting two of the most beautiful spots in one visit. With trails and views it’s easy to soak up a whole day adventuring this area.  

  1. Bow Falls 

Bow Falls is easily the prettiest! You can be sure to see some pretty views here and it’s a great spot to let the kids run free and explore while stretching their legs. Love this spot, being able to visit around the river or walking the trail! Can’t wait to come back here soon! 

  1. Tunnel Mountain 

Tunnel Mountain is by far the best spot to see some great views of the rocky mountains. Only minutes away from Buffalo Mountain Lodge. It’s one of our favourite spots too stay when we visit Banff! Driving through this area is the most exciting. It’s just SO beautiful and there are so many places to stop and walk around. Just talking about it makes me so happy.  

It’s easily said that Banff is a special place for our family who loves the outdoors. From walking around downtown Banff checking out coffee shops and special shops to finding new trails to take the kids. There is just so much to do and we are eagerly awaiting when we get to come back and take it all in again. We’ve been desperately craving another family trip here and we know that once we get the go-ahead we will be headed straight to the rocky mountains!  

Be sure to keep up to date on Parks Canada re-opening dates…

Packing A Summer Picnic

My children love to be mini hostesses. I mean I totally understand where they get it from. Watching me set up for parties, get togethers or just helping me set up for dinner. They totally watch and lead by example, so when it comes to movie nights they love to help set up and get the party started. They love getting out the fancy dishes for their treats and drinks, lay out everything so nicely for us to enjoy!…

Summer Travel With Valco Baby Snap 4

 

SUMMER TRAVEL With VALCO BABY SNAP 4

Things have changed just slightly over here in the past few months. We bought a teeny, tiny commuter car! It’s been kind of great for our family of four, not going to lie. Driving into Vancouver for us and parking a truck was sometimes a little hectic. And not only that, juggling a stroller and fitting something into our squishy back seat was not an option with kids in the back, so if it was a rainy day the stroller got soaked! …

Summer Kids Apparel With Carter’s | Osh Kosh {Queensborough Landing}

Now that the sun is FINALLY shining it’s time to re-organize your kids closets & re-vamp them a little just like we do our own. I love Summer for this reason easy & quick outfits to throw on the kids before walking out the door! All while looking stylish & feeling comfortable! My little ones love clothing, they love trying on new outfits & shopping for new pieces for themselves. I let them choose items they want to wear and let them decide. They have to feel confident wearing clothes that feel good on them!…
