Peanut and Ting Ting

 Ting Ting is Kail’s best friend. They spend many play dates together. Seems like they have many of the same toys and share the same interests. I believe Ting Ting is a few months older than Kaili.

Banff in the Summer


Another one of those things that any trip to Calgary is not complete without. I’ve taken Lucille to Banff before but that was during winter. That’s great too but Banff is truly spectacular in the summer time. The air is so clean, the surrounding trees are very green, the mountains are amazing to look at and the water at Lake Louise and Moraine Lake is incredible to see.

We stayed at the Rimrock Hotel. Right next to the hotel is the gondola ride up to the summit. From there you can see the entire town of Banff.

Golfing in Canmore

I was also able to golf in Canmore at this course called SilverTip. What a ridiculously hard course. There was so much slope in this course being that it was basically carved into the side of a mountain. The course featured some amazing views of the Rocky Mountains though. My friend Kim came along for the ride and endured watching me torture myself on this tough course.

The Calgary Stampede

No trip to Calgary is truly ever complete without checking out the Stampede. It’s really like a giant county fair but it’s been in the history of Calgary for as far as I know. It’s one of those things that you just go to time and time again as a child growing up. I had the pleasure of taking both Kaili and Lucille to it. We rode some rides with Kaili and managed to eat mini-donuts as well. We didn’t try for any prizes at the carnival.
