Old Fashioned Road Trip
How fortunate we have been! My family was able to spend 10 days on an old fashioned road trip with my parents. My husband and 2 boys and I crowded into my parents new mini-van for a road trip that would take us from Saskatoon, to Malta Montana, down to Great Falls then through Glacier National Park through British Columbia in Radium Hot Springs (both places my husband and children have never been) then to Calgary Alberta and then back home. It was a whirlwind adventure that had ups and downs. Thankfully my husband is a good sport and put up with my parents, getting to know them in ways maybe he never wanted to. HAH! The whole time I found such beauty in the mountains and forest that I never wanted to come home to the bald prairies. Oh well, here I am again and I can see many more trips to the mountains with our boys. I am so glad to have been able to share this with my whole family. It has definitely been a lesson on patience, love, family and beauty. All the following pictures were taken by me on my Dad's point & shoot camera (YES!) in Glacier National Park.
