Here are some fun photos and videos from camping at Little Bow, hanging with Paul and Allison,
and going to the zoo with Grace.

Camping at Little Bow Prov Park


Full size
We stopped at a neat little train station for lunch in Mossleigh, east of Calgary. Here we're actually
eating in a dining car, which was pretty sweet and Henry loved it.

Henry also got to walk around a caboose, which he thought was pretty fun.

The 'beach' is little more than a turn in the reservoir, but it was actually quite nice and pretty warm. I wouldn't
say that it's the sandiest bottom gorgeous spot, but a pretty nice spot to enjoy some summer heat and play in the
water. Henry enjoyed the nicely raked sand, especially when no one else was there.

Henry also enjoyed the fact that there was a concession that served him a big popsicle!

So, this guy decided that it's a good idea to wander the campground and pass out business cards. Seriously.

Here's his calling card.

Henry and Grace at the Calgary Zoo

It's a rare day at the zoo when the lions are actually out in full view. Henry thought the lions were quite regal
and he wanted to see them quite a bit.

Henry and Grace at the end of the lion area, where they're building up for flood control. They
enjoyed running around and chasing each other at the zoo.

Calaway Park with Paul and Allison


Full size
Paul and Allison visited with us for a few days enroute back to Portland this summer. We, of course, took them
to Calaway Park for the day. Here are Paul, Allison, Tamaya, and Natalia on the swings.

So, I wound up riding the log ride solo since Henry bailed. This was in the front of my log. No surprises that
I got quite wet.

Paul, Allison, Elly, and Tamaya on the log ride. What a nice family outing!

Paul wasn't feeling the best, so I took Allison for my 2nd ride.

It turns out that if the Calgary Police Rodeo says there is a 'Children's Carnival' starting at 8am, it's
only a suggestion. We left at 11am and there still wasn't any sign of a pancake breakfast yet.

Natalia went out for a ladies' night and this was the bubble party that ensued on the block.

The view from our deck. It always makes me happy. That's Middle Sister with the obvious slanted slope.

A crazy storm coming in from the west.

Maria's bf Michael excited about having dinner on our deck. That's 7 lbs of roast beef along with Natalia's amazing
grilled veggie salad, corn, and Natalia's amazing potatoes.
