Checked off a bucket list adventure this weekend. Jordan and I headed up with my sister and her family to the Ice Castles in Midway, Utah!

I thought I wouldn’t do this.
I thought I wouldn’t be the one to skip out on the blog once this happened. BUT I did! And I really have no reason why. Tiredness? Preoccupied? I don’t know. That being said, we’ve got a pretty big announcement.
Our next little adventure coming this May 2016!
Yup, a baby!
I wanted to kill two birds with one stone and have our baby announcement be in our Christmas card this year. So Jordan and I hurried up the canyon one day after work (with a tripod and Kiko in tow) and snapped a few photos. And we really don’t have any photos of the three of us (with Kiko), so the tripod was our photographer for the mini photo shoot.
We really are just beyond excited for this baby! I hope to write a more detailed update on our lives soon, so stay tuned!

Well, Lake Louise is beautiful. No denying that.
And we FINALLY got our canoe ride in.

We really loved Jasper. It was hard to leave, but we had some sights we wanted to see down in Banff, so we took the last couple days we had in Canada and headed south.

Our final day in Jasper was by far my favorite.
We got up early and checked out of our cabin, which was an AWESOME place to stay. I nabbed a room last minute, without much research. And I’m glad we stayed here instead of a hotel. It was a cosy little cabin, and a perfect setting for a getaway in the woods.

We had a bit of an overcast day on our second day at Jasper National Park. We didn’t have much of an agenda for the day. At the very least, we hoped to canoe/kayak on a lake.

Well that was an unexpected blog hiatus. Sorry for the radio silence! Let’s dust off the ol’ blog with some photos from our trip up north!
We had planned a trip to Banff a while back, but as we neared our departure date, we decided to shake up our itinerary a bit. After landing in Calgary, we decided to make the 5+ hour drive a little bit further north to Jasper National Park! That was a good choice.
At first, I was a little wary of making such a long drive just after an international flight. But honestly, driving the Icefields Parkway was one of the highlights of the trip.

We headed down to Joe’s Valley this past Labor Day weekend for some much anticipated outdoor bouldering. Our good friends Audrey and Ammon came with us, and we spent the final days of summer climbing some rocks!

One of our stops as we toured Germany was a small town called Schierling, where my Grandmother lived when she was young.
We drove through the forests where my grandmother would stand guard while her mother picked mushrooms, toured the school she attended as a child, walked inside the church where she had her first communion, visited with a distant relative (who treated us handsomely to some delicious German snacks!), and (after some searching) found the home where my Grandmother grew up.
