It was great to meet all Beau's new team mates and their families prior to our Europe departure.  Beau practiced with the Canada Cowboys 4-5 hours daily in Canmore and enjoyed every minute of being on the ice and making new friends.  As always, he worked hard both on and off the ice and we were all proud when he was chosen by his new team mates to wear an A.  

 Our family enjoyed an RV adventure and exploring Banff and area. We survived the Widow Maker white water rafting. We zip lined the Kicking Horse River. We ATV and hiked to find Wapata Falls, a hidden treasure in the mountain (3rd largest falls in Canada but only a small number of tourists actually get to see it). We enjoyed horse back riding and the Banff Hot Springs. Chateau Lake Louise provided a spectacular view and I hope to some day do the 3 hour round trip hike to the Lake Agnes tea house in the mountains.  One of our favorite memories is hiking the Johnston Canyon.  We visited the lower falls and enjoyed the smell, feel and sound of the waterfall as we viewed from inside a tiny cave.  We continued on to the upper falls and all agreed it was spectacular and worth the hour hike to get there ( even Jeff who does not like to walk).  If we visit again we will definitely continue on to see the ink pots but this day we had to get Beau back for hockey practice.  On top of all the amazing adventures, we had many great dining experiences ...which included duck and oysters.  Life is all about firsts and on this trip we all had many firsts!
