Day 213

We had been looking forward to seeing this movie and since we had 4 passes (thank you scene card!), and it was cheap Tuesday, the movie cost us $6.50 for all of us to see it! We love this movie and the main character reminded me a LOT of Bryn :)

Day 204

Our last day at the reunion was met with a little sadness after finding a baby robin that had fallen from it's nest. It was dying, so Lyndon put it out of it's misery so it wouldn't suffer a moment longer.

Day 202

Lots of activities happened today, but the most memorable was the roasting of the pig for dinner! Grandpa got to parade the head around on a platter for all to see. It was delicious and it made us appreciate, more, where our food comes from!

Day 201

We arrived at the Shipley Family reunion a day early, so we got to enjoy some extra visiting time with the relatives! Uncle Ted had some fun stories to share with the kids about some petrified dinosaur poop he discovered on the land.

A glorious day in Banff - a place full of majestic beauty! We only saw one bit of wildlife, and that was this lone deer near the Banff Springs Hotel. Still, a great day!

Day 199

It was perfect weather to enjoy a day at the Calgary zoo. One of my favorite parts is all of the beautiful peacocks wandering around the grounds. It makes for a great photo op when they are on full display!

Day 195

Lots of driving - like every Summer. But when the driving is bringing you nearer to family, it is so worth it!

A rousing game of "Operation" to while away a couple of hours. Playing is such hard work!

It might not look like much, but these simple posts shooting water is just what the body calls for on a scorching hot 38+ degree day!

A visit to the dentist resulted in NO CAVITIES for any of us! Yay! That is what we like to hear :)

Day 187

The girls went through a faze where they wanted to play Monopoly every day. I had no idea it has been around for as long as it has, and it still captures the imagination of kids, young and old, today! Besides the fact that they are actually learning math and economics at the same time! Bonus!

Day 186

When the tiger lilies are in bloom, my heart is just that much happier :) It brightens my entire day to see them! Like home grown sunshine!

Day 185

While driving into the Superstore parking lot, I laughed out loud when I saw this person, parked in the driving lane of the parking lot. They must have been in a hurry to park, and noticed the white car parked facing toward them, so assumed that the spot in front of them was a stall. Who knows. Just a funny moment when I was glad to have my iPhone camera on me!

Day 184

Spending a glorious afternoon at Regina Beach, visiting, eating, and enjoying every second. I sure love where we live!
