Lake Louise & Lake Moraine

Two favourite and very popular places to visit in Banff National Park. We’ve been to Lake Louise a few times now and each time we go it never gets old. It’s a classic spot that we love to visit every time we’re in Banff. Now Lake Moraine on the other hand, this was our first time visiting here. Once before it was wayyyy to busy for us to even try and another time was mid-Winter so the road was closed off.

Both of these beautiful lakes are pretty near each other so if you get the chance to visit one chances are you have enough time to get to the other. Once you arrive to Lake Louise there are so many signs pointing you in the right direction that you can’t miss either!

Lake Louise

Yes, we’ve been here about 5 times now. It never gets old. We’ve been in the Summer, Fall and Winter. Winter is my absolute favourite time in Banff so this is another reason why. But I found that this year visiting in Fall it was a sight to see with all the Fall colours taking over.

It’s busy, all the time. I feel like Fall you may be hitting a better time to visit because it’s a smidge less busy. You can rent canoes and in Winter time when the lake is frozen over you can rent skates. It’s open basically all year round!

Lake Louise Fairmont is also located right on the grounds. Visitor’s can look around grab a bite to eat and explore a little bit. There are also a few hiking trails nearby if you’re an eager hiking.

Lake Moraine

Alright, so just down the road from Lake Louise is Lake Moraines road to travel. It takes a solid 15-20 minutes to travel. Not an overly crazy road but I will mention that parking fills up pretty quickly so either decide early morning or late afternoon on your visit. We went late afternoon and snagged a close spot to walk.

We also suggest packing clothes in your car for all kinds of weather. We left and it was a beautiful sunny day by the time we arrived to Lake Moraine it was pouring rain! Which is why we opted out of climbing the rocks for the view. There is more to see than just on the beach here but with two little ones in the rain, we decided it probably wasn’t the best of ideas!

Either way we managed to mark this location off our bucket list and enjoy the views just as they were. Such a gorgeous spot to be!

The Perfect Fall Getaway Emerald Lake Lodge

Well we snuck away for about 5 days on our very first longgg road trip with the kids. A total of 6 hours to our first stop visiting Emerald Lake Lodge. We all made it there in one piece thankfully! This was also our first family trip since self isolation and the announcement of COVID. We’ve been very cautious with travelling and felt like things had all been put into place to make things safer now.

Summer Swimming At Cultus Lake

Every year this is the place to be on hot Summer days! Lucky for us it’s right in our own backyard. But making sure to get there or after the hectic crowds is our specialty! We’ve kind of perfected it at this point. It can get very busy in this area, so we normally scoot down just before bedtime letting the kids get an evening dip in. Still so late in the evening it’s still been very hot and very sunny so its been wonderful this year!

Summer Evenings Enjoying Crescent Beach British Columbia

These little moments enjoying the beautiful places in our own backyard are crucial this Summer with the Covid happenings. We are making every stitch effort we can to still enjoy all the little moments and places that are so close to us including this beauty little spot Crescent Beach.

I say Crescent Beach British Columbia because there is actually a Crescent Beach in Nova Scotia that Drew and I use to visit quite often when we first started to date and it became a special place to us! We even did our wedding photos there!

One day last week we finally had a glimpse of sun and nice weather so my friend Kaila and I packed up our kids one evening and ventured for an adventure! hahaha It was a really sweet time and I’m so lucky we had the chance to spend that time with our friends just exploring and taking it all in. I love spots like this and glad we have this time at home to start taking advantage of exploring here more often creating memories.

While here we both took the opportunity to also snap some really cute pictures of our kids together and they turned out so lovely. If you’re in the mood for a little getaway Blackie Spit & Crescent Beach makes for a sweet time. It is the best photography location, literally perfect photo spots all over the place. Just down the road little spots to grab coffee and treats. We will for sure be heading back again this Summer to enjoy some more views and sand in the toes!

Places To Visit In Whistler With Kids & A Budget | Vallea Lumina Giveaway

Let’s be honest here, travelling with kids is not usually the most relaxing thing in the world. It isn’t always the easiest or the most thrilling. Trust me, we’ve been there! This recent Whistler trip just didn’t exactly go our way the entire time with kids fighting, rain, thunder & lighting, fire ban… etc. But there were a few things that went our way… our visit to the night walk Vallea Lumina, the fun tent experience, the lake just relaxing…
