Spring Fun!!

I realized that I hadn’t posted in a long time so here’s a bit of an update.

Since this was Carson’s grade six year, he missed out on Ridgeview’s annual legislature tour.  We were all interested so we made a field trip out of it one day and went for the official tour.  That is an incredible building.  Carson, Emery and I even sat in for the session time for a bit.


This past weekend, we took a quick trip to Calgary, to visit some family and friends. We drove down on the Friday afternoon and stopped at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame.  Coincidentally, it was the induction ceremony day and the ceremony was set to start about 20 minutes after we arrived.  One of the inductees was Ryan Smyth, whom we actually got to meet and get some things “scribbled on” as Tucker put it.  His wife and kids were there too, so it was really neat to meet them all.

We saw my sister Ann and her family Friday evening and enjoyed a great visit and meal with them.  Saturday morning we just swam at the hotel pool.  Saturday afternoon, we headed to Okotoks, where Lenora’s sister Alana and her husband are living in their holiday trailer while Bobby works there.  Together with Alana, we went to see the Okotoks Erratic Rock, which is a humongous rock that caught a ride on a glacier and was left out in the open when the glacier melted.

Saturday for supper and the evening we spent with Lenora’s cousin, Arlene and her family.  I must say it was a real blessing to visit with all these great people.

On the way home on Sunday, we stopped at the Discovery Wildlife Park near Innisfail.

Tomorrow, I’m excited to celebrate one of the most significant events of my life. Tomorrow will be 15 years since I married my lovely wife. We plan to celebrate with the boys tomorrow by going out for supper.
