Bower Ponds in May

The Gallery - For Everyone

It was the first really beautiful day of the year and we couldn’t wait to get outside.

One of our favorite places to go is down to Bower Ponds. There’s tons of places to walk along the river, not to mention the actual ponds plus two playgrounds to take the kids to. It’s always one of the first places we hit when the weather gets nice and is one of our most frequented summer locations.

This year, Kaeidyn had control of the camera and took a ton of pictures. She got some great pictures of the family and of course, I’m obsessed with the pictures she took of The Boyfriend and I. But today, I wanted to share some of the landscape shots she got. What do you think?

The Day We Went to Crescent Falls – Beautiful Landscapes

The Gallery - For Everyone

For the entirety of our relationship, The Boyfriend has always desperately wanted to take us to Crescent Falls. He has fond memories of his youth at the falls and always delights in the chance to share any part of his youth with us. I wanted to go for the waterfall. Since moving to Alberta, I haven’t gotten to see nearly as many as I used to living in BC.

Finally, after years of talking about it, we took a wonderful day trip out to Crescent Falls and were sure to take our cameras along to get as many pictures as possible. The whole day was a whirlwind experience and one that will definitely go down in the history books.

This day will be broken down into a series of posts, because there are really just too many great photos to put in one post. Today, I want to share the beautiful landscapes as we drove out there and explored the falls. The next post, I’d like to do some of the fun videos we got from our time there. And finally, I’d like to end with all the amazing pictures of family that we got at Crescent Falls. Enjoy the view and be sure to check back for those next posts!

Crescent Falls – Landscapes 2015

It was honestly some of the most beautiful surroundings I’ve seen since I moved to Alberta almost 13 years ago. And although I discovered an extreme fear of the insane heights and especially the kids being free-to-roam around those heights, and although I definitely didn’t wear the right shoes for climbing and rocky path walking, it was definitely the perfect setting for an amazing summer adventure.

Again, be sure to check back for a collection of videos from the day, including an adorable moment between The Boyfriend and Carter (in which The Boyfriend dances) and our release of signed soccer balls over the falls. Then, a smattering of photos of all the kids enjoying the exploration, like the boys learning bear safety or their amazing climbing adventures and a few really awesome selfies! You should see them all up here within the next week or two, so stay tuned!
