Here are some photos from Natalia's Ukrainian Dance recital as well as some photos
from my Grandma's trip to visit us and to go to Radium Hot Springs, BC.

I think blue flashy pants need to come back into style.

Grandma at Radium Hot Springs, BC


Full size
My Grandma Banda came to visit us in Calgary and we decided to take a drive to Radium Hot Springs.
Here is Grandma in the visitor's centre with some old guy.

The regular hot springs pool was closed for maintenance, but they piped the hot water into the deeper pool
area, which was just fine. They also had pool noodles, which was a big hit. Here are Natalia and Grandma
enjoying the waters and their pool noodles.

Grandma and I at Radium. You can see the results of me fighting with my Swiss Army knife as I finally
removed Natalia's 'Winter Lights'...

A better shot of Natalia and Grandma.


Full size
I thought having two pool noodles was the bomb.


Full size
The rains held off at Radium for us and we enjoyed another dip in the pool. I look like I'm Mr Burns saying,
"Excellent!" I'm just using Natalia's trick for not getting wrinkly hands in the water.


Full size
Of course the swim had to be followed up by ice cream. Natalia got gross Tiger Tiger.


Full size
Our visit saw a lot of wildlife. Here are Natalia and Grandma with a few Bighorn sheep, but we also
saw about a hundred deer enroute to Radium and back to Calgary.


Full size
Grandma and I wanted our photo taken with this bear at Dead Man's Flats.


Full size
Natalia and Grandma with the very rough-looking bear.


Full size
Grandma made out quite well for Mother's Day - managing to get a beautiful rose from the Olde Salzburg
restaurant in Radium from our dinner and a pink carnation from St Joseph's K of C.
