A few days ago my husband and I got back from a Chapdelaine family reunion in Canada :) It was so good to spend time with his family. We did plenty of hiking, relaxed in the hot springs, went white water rafting, and of course visited with family. Some favorite places from on our trip: Invermere, Canmore, Banff National Park, Kootenay National park, and Lake Louise. 

Normally when I travel I want to see new locations, but there is a special place in my heart for the Canadian rockies. I would go back every year, or even multiple times a year! Riley and I were there in February when it looked like a winter wonderland. We left and said we had to come back in the Summer or Fall, and a few weeks later, the Chapdelaines were putting together this reunion :) It couldn't have worked out more perfectly. I am so grateful for family, for the opportunity to travel, and to witness such beauty. 

If you haven't been, here are some pictures to inspire you to plan a trip! 

Breathe in the fresh air, feel the icy glacier water, see the wildlife, get tossed around on the rapids of the kicking horse river with your in-laws;)

You're alive, but are you living
