Banff and Meltdowns

We booked a last minute weekend away to Banff, just the 4 of us. This was the first weekend in a long time that I didn't have a session, and we took advantage of the lingering beautiful fall weather. We used to go out to Banff or Canmore every year, but the last time we went was when Sullivan was almost one and I was unknowingly 2 days away from finding out I was pregnant with Flynn.
We went to all our favourite spots. Attempted dinners out that were disasters. Bundled up and felt the first bit of winter. Had 2 incidents that resulted in blood (everyone is ok). Slept terribly and navigated many meltdowns. Had a moments in which we wondered why we EVER go anywhere with two toddlers who sleep best at home. But in the end it is always worth it. The good memories override the bad ones and before you know it you are looking back with fondness on the weekend, and laughing at the craziness of it all.
Also, sometimes I forget that Alberta is pretty beautiful. You just have to go looking.
