Family Road Trip

My family and I are on our first road trip out of province.

I’ve been busy documenting our experiences on my Canon 5d Mark III with a 35mm lens and my iPhone 6 while editing along the way with the Snapseed app.

We started with the intention to visit family near Lumby, see old friends in Banff, look at old dinosaur bones in Drumheller, meet family in Brosseau and Edmonton and attend the Lac St Anne Pilgrimage.

Being the anxious person that I am, I prefer to have a planned itinerary. You know, a solid schedule of what is to be seen and done. Very little change.

However, I’ve had to set that way of thinking aside and just go with the flow, which hasn’t been the easiest thing for me to do.

Our plans have been changing every day.

We made it all the way to Drumheller, but as soon as we finished with the Royal Tyrell Museum it was time to turn around and head back to BC.

I am learning to let go and just have fun with my boys.

While this road trip has been full of ups and downs, my heart is full of love as I catch a glimpse of awe in the faces of my children when they experience the changing landscape around us.
