It started when Kyler, spur-of-the-moment, suggested Friday afternoon we head to Banff. We decided we could totally go the next day. Normally we plan these things a little more in advance, but we had all evening to get it figured out, so no problems! We picked a hike to do, decided what to bring, and got the kiddos excited for the next day.
Saturday morning, as a gorgeous morning dawned, we left the house around 8 AM, and headed to the national park. First stop, the Grassi Lakes hike. We initially thought we'd just the "easy route" up and down, but decided to try the "hard route" up, and the "easy route" down. I'm so glad we chose to challenge ourselves a bit.

We walked around the small lakes a little bit, and then headed down, on the "easy route." Again, I'm glad we did.
We got back to the car, Craig still asleep, and headed to get some lunch. We were all pretty hungry, and happily devoured our burgers, fries, and root beer.
Then we headed to the Cave and Basin Historic Site.
And finally, we headed back home to rest, relax, and eat some dinner. All in all, a perfect day.
