We were going through photos and realized we never posted these from Moraine Lake! It was one of our favorite places so I thought I would share a few. It was freeeezing that day and we somehow lost A’s mittens and went to multiple stores and didn’t find any small enough so we had to tie off his sweater ha! I could have watched him all day try to climb over the rocks and walk around saying hi to everyone and even posing for selfies with foreign tourists who asked. He is such a cheeser and looks right at their selfie stick with the biggest grin. We also woke up early and got hot coco and breakfast to eat in the trunk of our jeep. It was really cozy and then a herd of goats came and tried to hop in the car haha.. okay not really but they were coming close and it was pretty funny.

Hope you all are having a good week! xo

  1. I love your whole outfit in this post! I also think it is so awesome how much you travel. I am finally able to start traveling since I am finished with school and my boyfriend and I are going to Quebec for winter carnival! Where are you guys traveling to next?

  2. hello! absolutely love your blog!! I wanted to see where your black boots were from in one of these photos? the black ones with buckles :)) thanks so much! xoxox

    1. In this post I am wearing my Nikes 🙂 And Atticus is wearing his Hunter boots!! xo

  3. Hi Amber,

    Can you let me know where you rented the van ? also what kind is it ?!

    1. Hi Felicia!! We always use Avis Car Rental! But I don’t remember what kind of van it was, sorry about that.

      1. Hi Amber thanks for replying. Did you do in September ? How was the weather ? I am planning for August or September

  4. I love you so much. You and your family are amazing, beauty, cute. When ı saw your picture, I said to my boyfriend I want to be like this family. I hope you will always be happy.

  5. Do you know where you got the two blankets that are in the back of your car? (The one with big stripes and the herringbone print.)

    1. They were from a local shop in Banff!! I have seen similar ones at Target though!! 🙂

      1. Ooops, sorry, should clarify that comment a bit more. The Bay carries THIS sort of Canadiana merch. It’s inspired by the blankets used back in the day (the blankets were first commissioned in the 1800s) and used for trading purposes, mainly traded for beaver pelts. They are called the Hudson Bay point blanket and retail here in Canada, anywhere from $295 – $495. If purchasing from anywhere besides The Bay, be sure to look for the specific label applied to the blanket, that denotes it as genuine/authentic. There are knock-offs.

        (fyi, I don’t work for The Bay, in case that needs to be noted, lol – I just live here)

    2. The striped ones are always available at The Bay. They carry all the historical Canadiana inspired merchandise here in Canada. You should be able to find them online at thebay.ca

      Glad you loved Moraine. It’s my favorite. I think it’s even more beautiful than Lake Louise.

  6. These pictures are so gorgeous! I’ve only been to Vancouver, but now I really want to visit the other side. SOOOO gorgeous!

    1. Thank you so much Ana!! It was so amazing, you should definitely visit!! 🙂

  7. Absolutely beautiful there and beautiful photography! The way you tied off Atticus’ sleeves is adorable. Where is his camo coat from? I love it!

  8. These photos are UNREAL! Seriously everything is so pretty. I’m in love with the fact that you guys could get the car so close to the water and just take everything in. The best!

    1. Thank you babe!! You are too nice!! It was one of my favorites moments 🙂 Thanks for reading!!

  9. Hi Amber!
    I love your blog so so much, literal family goals ha ha! Something I always wonder is how do you break in all of your shoes so quickly? Does running around with a baby all day in those new pairs ever get painful? Whenever I get new shoes I get so many blisters the first few times I wear them 🙁 any tips?

    1. Hi Emma!!
      Thank you so much!! I am so glad you follow along 🙂 And I know exactly what you mean!! I suggest wearing new shoes around the house or for part of the day if you won’t be walking much. It will make a big difference rather than wearing them for a whole day and getting those dreaded blisters 🙁 You can also try putting padding in the back by the heel to be safe! I hope that helps!! xoxo

  10. The scenery is incredible! Looks like such an amazing experience. And oh my gosh, I didn’t even notice the McGyver’ed mittens until you mentioned it in the post, and I had to look back at the pictures. How hilariously adorable!

  11. I’ve wanted to visit Moraine Lake for SO long! It looks like you had an amazing trip there – and eating breakfast and drinking hot cocoa in the back of the jeep?! So fun!

  12. Is it the brightest idea to walk on a log on a lake with a toddler on your shoulders? No, probably not. But I guess it’s no brighter to walk on a log on a lake when you’re heavily pregnant. Anyway….

    1. Gia, anyway…..you sound so jealous ! FYI… The photos are staged with the utmost care to the safety of all of them, including the unborn babe.

    2. It appears that the log is really skinny but its actually VERY wide – you could skip across it comfortably without falling.

    3. it’s also her and her husband’s decision on the safety of their children (born and unborn) ..i doubt they would do anything dangerous and then post it for the world to see…they seem like awesome, intelligent people who are making better choices than most in this world!!!

    1. I know what you mean!! I am getting so excited for the winter!! Thanks for reading Krista!! xo
