In August that same year they welcomed their first child Linda, then Freida in 1952. Fred and Gerry saw many places together as Fred was as a park warden. Some of the places included, Banff National Park and Glacier Nation Park. In 1957, they moved to a farm north of Sundre, where they raised their family.
