It turns out that two of Natalia's favourite things are Calaway Park
and riding tandem bikes.

The entrance to Calaway Park. We wound up getting there before 4pm and so were able to take
advantage of only a half-price ride ticket.

Shockingly, Natalia's first stop was in the candy store although I don't think she actually bought anything.
She just really likes to look at bright colours and food.

Our first ride was the dinosaur egg spinny ride. Apparently, we were too heavy to sit together. It was
a good warm up though.

Natalia and I sitting in the log ride. We waited a full half hour to get on the ride, but it was totally
worth it on a really hot day.

It turns out that both Natalia and I are more suited to the kids' train than to the fast rides.
After a couple of rounds on Chaos, we were pretty much toast. Here's Natalia's opinion: VIDEO .

I took this picture for my sister Renee since she named her car "Majestic".

I'm not sure if it's a good sign that when Natalia got in trouble she let her hands go off the steering wheel...

Tamdem biking fun!

Erin Hlynsky and Chad Glemser joined us for our first try on tandem bikes. The University of Calgary
rents tandem bikes and so that was our first stop.

Natalia was ready for anything.

Natalia is checking out our ride. I don't think she ever got on the front though.

It turns out that we weren't quite ready for the torrential downpour and hail that opened our trip.
Here, Erin and Natalia take a break under a tree.

Erin and Chad a little on the soaked side.

We decided to take a run for it and wound up in a parking garage until it cleared.
Thumbs up from the crew for our party in the parking garage!

Note the blue sky. This was exactly 20 mins after the last picture. Weird. We took a ride down to
the Bow River from the University.

I tried to get a picture of Natalia and I too.
