courageous canuck country voyage 08

So this weekend, i got the chance to go home to Canada to visit.. and take blake with me so he could see what exactly all the rage was about.

We drove all night Thursday and arrived in Calgary at around ten thirty in the morning. We were super tired, but Friday night we got to go out to dinner with Mom, Dad, Jamie, Erika and jenelle to Moxies. The bathrooms there were the highlight.. with two fireplaces and couches and such.

Later that night we met up with Kandice, and Blake had his first ever Bubble Tea.
I am still not a big fan of the bubbles....

Saturday we went to the mall and walked around Eau Claire Market and surrounding area. Luckily for us the weather was good all weekend.

Probably the best part of the trip for me was seeing Erika in her play "Crazy For You" where she played the lead girl.. polly. I had no idea she had it in her to do it.. and she did amazing! I was so proud of her

Of course a trip to Calgary wouldn't be complete without a trip to Peters. Above:Erika, Blake, Me, Kandice

Dad must have been missing Angie, Mike, Brylie and Tyken on Sunday, because after church he put on one of his Hawaiin shirts. Blake had seen a hawaiin shirt in my closet and decided to match my dad.

(The pineapple was just added tropical effect.)

Monday we ventured out to Banff. The weather was once again beautiful.

Blake decided that we should go up on the gondola.. and it was a lot of fun, even though i started to feel a bit scared of heights on the way up.

Below is a picture of blake trying poutine for the first time...
Luckily we got some flames tickets .. and got to go to the game against the St. Louis Blues. The flames won 7-3 and Iginla scored his 365th goal for the flames. We were in the nose bleeds but there was lots of happy drunk people around us cheering loud, and they're half the fun anyways.
We drove back all day yesterday... the drive was long, but the roads were good which is always a blessing when making that trip. It was a lot of fun... i love seeing my family and hanging out with them, we even got to see shelia, darrell, julia and jospeh and Grandma and Grandpa.

Now it's back to school for the last month.. i can't believe the semester is already almost over.
