Great Falls Road Trip!

8:41 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  A couple of weeks ago, Becky and I decided on a whim to head down to Great Falls, Montana for a quick weekend getaway with baby Kyron.  We went down there last October for the first time to do some shopping and we were amazed at the deals.  The drive is only 4.5 hours from Calgary and the city is covered with cars carrying Alberta license plates as it is the closest American city to the boarder. 

 Here are some random shots...

Kyron was a really good traveller again.  It was a three hour drive from the Calgary to the USA Border, and he was a perfect angel until five minutes before we hit the Montana line when he got hungry.  Unfortunately, we had to wait 30 minutes to get through the border crossing.  Yikes! 

  Once we got through and Kyron ate, it was smooth sailing once again! 

 I find it kind of funny that we live in a city of 1.1 Million people yet we drive to a little town of 70,000 to shop?  Some of the deals in the USA are just too great to pass up and they have some stores there that Calgary does not have yet, namely Target! 

 We will be back next year again to kill a weekend and drop some cash on clothes and other stuff for Kyron.  Maybe next time I will actually pull myself away from the mall long enough to check out the "Great Fall's" that the city is named after.

    Oh! Kyron is a cute baby. He sure loves to travel I can see it in his eyes. He looks very excited in the first picture with the note Great Fall to shop.
