These are pictures and video from a session at my house, visiting Megan and Bud in Edmonton,
partying it up in Canmore, hiking at Grassi Lakes, Mel Popp's wedding, and visiting with
Bohdanna.

Erin finally convinced Natalia to get glasses since she found some pretty frames. Of course,
that means that they now match even more than before.

Natalia and I took a short hike to see the Hoodoos. This is Tunnel Mountain in the background
along with the Banff golf course.

We then went up Tunnel Mountain to check out the view. It looks like there's some weather
on its way in to Banff.

Here Natalia is pointing out one of her favourite spots in the mountains - Banff Upper Hot Springs.

Natalia really wanted to buy this giant rooster. Hmm, I know it could have a home somewhere...


Mel and Matt's wedding


Full size
My good friend Melanie Popp up and got married this fall. We're REALLY REALLY happy for her and for
her super lucky man Matt Sklepowich. Here is a picture of Mel and Matt having their first dance. The reception
was top notch and we had a blast dancing up a storm.

Mel's cake.

Mel and Matt (with a little kid in the foreground). Note that Mel and Matt's wedding was an example
of how to put on a great party with little kids involved (Wii, popcorn, candy, and fun times). For more

Visiting with Donni in Banff


Full size
As we were driving on 1A, we ran into a few sheep. In fact, we wound up less than 1 metre from them and
in electric mode, they barely even looked up.


Full size
Natalia and Donni putting their best foot forward. This is at Johnston Canyon, which Donna hadn't seen yet.


Full size
Donni and Nati enjoying the hike in.

Donni, Nati, and Lower Johnston Falls.


Full size
We went through the Gremlins tunnel and checked out the other side.


Full size
Nati and Donni making scary faces because they are now Gremlins.


Full size
We naturally made a stop at the hot springs on the way out of Banff.


Full size
Natalia is trying to keep her fingers from turning into prunes.

Donni thought my camera was cool since it can take underwater shots. Here are my and Natalia's
legs in the hot springs pool.
