Why I Live Here

I quite enjoy living in a big city. Although there are some downsides to it, I love living here. First and foremost my parents live here and they are a big part of our and the kids lives. I can't imagine not having that, so that is probably the number one reason we live here. But of all places I'm glad we chose Calgary.

On friday we headed off to the Stampede. Lucas was great, espcially as I forgot to bring a stroller and he didn't ask e to carry him once. He loved the Superdogs and the Bike trick show they do. He also enjoyed looking at the tankers, fighter engines and helicopters that the army/navy/marines brought along. Here is a great picture of it. With the Saddledome in the background.

He also quite enjoys the agricultaural buildings with all the horses, cows, llamas, sheep, pigs etc. They were also doing a neat demonstration on canola oil and had canola seeds with little tractors in them. We spent quite a bit of time there. =)

Yesterday our best friends headed out to a campsite in the mountains, and invited us out for dinner and a fire. So Lucas, Nathan and I packed up and headed out to the mountains. Lucas loved it. He loved playing with his friends and Emma loved the fresh air. It's great that such beautiful mountains are so close.

Here's Nathan's first trip to the mountains.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Till Tomorrow........... Jenn

That sounds fabulous! Though probably not as impressive as the animal exhibits at the stampede, we always spend more time visiting the animals when we go to the Western Fair than anything else. We can't get enough of them.

Glad you had fun!
