This week we went out to enjoy a family fun trip at Aspen Crossing in Mossleigh, just 45 minutes from SE Calgary! And wow did we ever have an amazing time, this trip was more amazing then I had ever expected!
The fun started off at arrival, we had booked an overnight stay at one of the three amazing Caboose cabins! Our home for the night was the Pacific Red Caboose!
The Red Caboose is the medium size out of the three Caboose cabins, it has a queen bed, a pull out sofa bed and a double bed in the upper look out portion of the Caboose. It also has a washroom and shower, and a small kitchenette. It was the perfect size for our family of four.
Just outside of the Caboose is a patio with BBQ, there is a picnic table and a fire pit as well. You do need to bring your own lawn chairs to sit around the fire, but all the other included amenities are amazing!
The cabin is clean and so well maintained, extra bedding can be found in the dresser at the back of the Caboose. The bed was comfy and we had a great sleep. The cabin also has AC and heat so this is glamping at its finest!
Our 4 year old could not get enough of the top bunk in the lookout area of the Caboose. Immediately he claimed that as his bed and spent any minute he could up there.
A short walk from the cabin is a small playground for the kids, Aspen Crossing is super family friendly! Our kids had a blast playing here and loved the big yellow slide.
Aspen Crossing is definitely one place your kids won't be sitting around bored at!
We walked around the Aspen Crossing campground and kept coming across neat things, like this miniature train the kids had a blast playing with and exploring!
Train tracks and fields for miles, Alberta prairies at their finest!
We wandered out and explored all the big Aspen Crossing trains, it's amazing that they operate full sized authentic equipment! We had such a blast checking everything out.
We booked dinner reservations at the Diefenbaker Dining Car Restaurant, this was one of my husband's favorite parts of the trip! The history within the dining car is amazing, we could only imagine what the walls could tell us if they could talk!
The service and food at the restaurant was top notch! We had a fabulous meal, the kids had tons of fun and the atmosphere was so unique!
Narrow but super spacious, our dinner at the dining car was fantastic. We are planning to come back for one of their famous Sunday brunches!
Just behind all of the Caboose cabins is a lovely green space where we had some after dinner soccer and frisbee games. It was a great way for the kids to release some energy before bedtime.
What do our kids think of Aspen Crossing? Super duper awesome! Mom and dad had a blast too! This is definitely a great family excursion we highly recommend!
